Travel By Numbers

127: The number of minutes I got to spend with Kelly, during which I freakishly lost my cell phone

258: The number of Christmas decorations that my mother has throughout her house. Puts me to shame and looks absolutely beautiful

2: carousel rides my children took

9: Minutes spent with Santa relaying their wish lists
(Spence: a Wii; Hannah: a dollhouse; Sienna: jewelry like Kaiya ; Austin: the ability to sit)

487: the number of times Sienna yelled out "Christmas yights!" as we drove around the city

1: visit to a colleague of Brad's whose husband recently had a liver transplant

14: hours that Austin went without napping. (What in the world did I eat?)

7,000: calories that I ate in this morning's breakfast of homemade Eggs Benedict

48: number of hours I went without knowing where my cell phone was before it mysteriously turned up in a Christmas box at Kelly's house (how bizarre is that?)

2: trips to Ikea.

4: minutes into the trip home before Sienna threw up in the car.

18 billion: snowflakes that fell making our drive home a little scary, but beautiful

6: very happy members of our family who loved their brief trip to the big city

Sounds like it was a great trip, except for losing your phone and Sienna puking. I'm glad you found your phone though ;)

Did you take any pictures of your mom's house? I would love to see all of her decorations!

Yeah, I wish I could see your mom's beautifully decorated house.

I'm glad you had a wonderful time. So cute that Sienna wanted jewelry like Kaiya's, though I don't have the foggiest idea of what that is!

What a fun weekend. Love all the random number facts. Sorry to hear about Sienna barfing. So not fun. Glad you had a great time.

Oh the minutes that we spend enjoying the simple joys of life, puke, crying, and lost items.

Sounds like it was a wonderful time. We missed you friday (it was great food if I do say so myself).

tharker said...

Megan's right. It was really good food! {and we did miss you!}

Nicole said...

Wow sounds like a blast. I have west side envy - I need a trip over there in the worst way. But, without the puking.

Kelly said...

What an eventful weekend you had! Your cell phone should be arriving in your mailbox today or tomorrow! So very strange.

Did you comment to me, earlier this year? Like as in January-September time? Because I was pretty MIA with most people haha. And for that I am sorry :) I will comment from now on!
