I'm Leeeaaavin' On A Jet Plane In Phil the Suburban

I'm here to announce that me, Monk and the Monkettes are leaving for vacation tomorrow!! Holla! ::Happy Dancing::

It is a MUCH anticipated and needed time of rest for our whole family. Trust me when I say the last year has been rather tumultuous. And it has been an entire year since we've been on a vacation as a family so we are VERY excited to be getting away for a bit.

When I say a bit, I mean TWO WHOLE WEEKS!!

(a side note to all would-be thieves, robbers and general menacing types: there WILL be people staying in my home. My house will NOT be vacant. There are two big dogs there also. One of them is murderous. Beware.)

I really am looking forward to a time of rest and relaxation. Well...if you call being in the car ( or Phil) for 12 straight hours with a 9 year old, 6 year old, not quite 2 year old and 6 month old, relaxing that is. I have an iPod and I know how to use it. 'Nuf said.

We also have one of them thar Fan-cee DVD players in the Suburban and the One-Eyed God will LIVE as we drive down the interstate. The children will be drugged entertained with videos and I will have in my iPod earphones. Can't get much better than that, my friends.

We're heading North for 12 hours on Saturday and then further North for 5 hours on Wednesday and then 5 hours FURTHER North on Thursday! And I will have to quit saying Y'all and start saying You Guys. And possibly, "eh". Eh?

Awwww, you say? She won't be blogging for two weeks. ::sniffle:: The heck I won't!! I plan on blogging the whole vacation!! Blogging is relaxing for me and I haven't been able to do it lately, so you better believe I'm gonna blog. Well, unless I'm having too much fun. Which is quite possible. But it is still The Plan to blog.

Oh! And look!

Because a blog post is SO much better with pictures .... I'm posting non-vacation related, cute pictures! Tell me you love me.

Hope nursing her dolly.

Next time I post I'll be coming to ya from somewhere other than my living room sofa! Whoop! But I'll be more relaxed (hopefully), which means I'll be funnier (or not) and have scads of pictures (that, my friends, is a definite!)!! Please pray for our traveling safety!!

See y'all later!!

I can't even tell you how much I love that hair cut on Hope. Such a cute picture (both!).

Have a wonderful, wonderful time. I am headed on a road trip myself, starting the 18th. New Mexico to New York in 7 days. Apparently I took a big dose of the crazy pills...

I'll be praying for you!

I am very glad you are getting to get away from it all......and come and visit ME!!!! (JUMPING UP AND DOWN WITH EXCITEMENT). I promise you won't have to say "you guys" or "Eh" one time while you are here (you can save that for the really northern folks because people around here will look at you weird if you say that here). Anwyay, can't wait! I am SO EXCITED!!!!! Oh, and by the way, those pictures of your kiddos are adorable! The one of Hope nursing her baby should go in a museum somewhere! That is toooo cute!!!
