Happy New Year!

Happy 2011, everyone!  I hope you all had a joyful holiday season and a peaceful return to normality.  We're still working on that second part ourselves- we just returned from a week in Palm Beach with Tyler's family.  His parents bought a beautiful vacation/retirement condo there and all of the family stayed together.  You know it's a close family when Tyler's parents, his sister and her boyfriend, his brother and his girlfriend, and our 3 all lived in one home for a week!  We spent a lot of time jumping waves and digging in the sand at the beach, playing card games at the kitchen table, and laughing as Tye hammed it up for everyone.  

We just returned to Chicago's freezing temps today, and now all the recovering is happening all at once- unpacking from the trip, putting away Christmas gifts, and starting to slowly take down the Christmas decorations.  Between the sand and the pine needles on the floor, I'm afraid we'll be vacuuming several times a day for weeks.  I can't wait to share some of the photos we took on our trip of Tye walking among the palm trees and squealing in the waves, but Uncle Traye was the designated trip photographer (he received an awesome new camera for Christmas), so we'll have to wait until we get the pictures from him so we can share.

Off to change loads of laundry again...
