He's Here!!

Dude, I'm so sorry I haven't written in forever!  I spent most of last week trying (and failing) to get the house nice and clean before Ben got here.  (And I may have spent an entire evening watching Season 2 of Downton Abbey...)

And since Ben has been here, I've been spending time cuddling him and cooking for him. :)  I'm trying to fill him up with all the chocolate he can handle, since he doesn't get much of that in China.

The kids have been beside themselves with happiness to have him back:
Gage immediately remembered him and took to him, too, which is great.  Of course, he brought presents home for everyone.  He got me a silk Chinese dress (not pictured) and this Dolce and Gabbana jacket from the silk market (you can buy these things for 10% of the retail price in the U.S.):
Sadly, neither of them fit me.  Sing it with me:  "Fat girl in a little coat....fat girl in a little co-oat...."  Sad.  So my skinny sister Lex gets the only Dolce and Gabbana thing I have ever owned or will ever own.  And a beautiful blue silk kimono.

My folks invited us to their stake's Harvest Festival that night, just a couple of hours after Ben got home, and we thought, free food.  Why not?  They had some chickens, rabbits, and goats that the kids could pet and feed, which was fun for them.



After the harvest fest, when the kids were settled in bed, Ben fell asleep. And has basically been asleep ever since. :)  Jet lag is a beeyotch.

Ben, me, and my parents are going on a little trip to New York to visit my seester, Beads, in a couple of days.  And then when we get home, Ben has a few more days with the kiddos before he has to leave again. :(  So now I'm off to do laundry and packing. 

This is Kar T.  Peace OUT.  (A little joke that only those who do the Insanity workout will get.)
