Tia's camera broke before she even got to the airport so I had to get one off the computer. She may not like this one -- but Tia's a good sport and I have no doubt I'll be forgiven.
There are demonstrations on hair cutting techniques and other stuff cosmetologists and a few other people might be interested in. Tia had a fabulous time. She enjoyed the beautiful California weather and the trip to Disneyland.
Other happy things:
*My boys have recovered from their long bouts with whatever miserable cold / fever thing they had.
*Connor dealt beautifully with going back to school after missing more than a week and has been handling his piles of homework well too.
*We got to go to my nieces baptism. My sister-in-law's Mom made us all feel like we were the most wonderful people in the world, and Brynn's baptism went well, and all of us had a really good time together.
*I got great footage of my son Connor and my nephew Porter dancing. Poe was being Poe-lina at the time. Hopefully soon I'll figure out how to post some of the fun dancing videos and the pretty pictures of Brynn and cousins. (New camera -- new challenges!)
*Derek and my kids are totally awesome.
*Dan loves Rosie and saved her from an early death by remembering we hadn't watered her. She's looking a little feeble though so cross your fingers. I left her by the sink this time -- she's more likely to be remembered.
*Angela watched Dan so I could go to breakfast with a friend. It was fun even though I goofed and ate breakfast before I left. I wasn't really going for the food and the visit was great. So was the second breakfast (Hey -- if hobbits, and Dan can do it ...)
*Shannon called. That's always nice.
*The family "super bowl" dinner without the game was fun. Loud. But fun.
*Dan gave the home evening lesson and was very enthusiastic at hide and seek. He's getting good.
