welcome home

This week has been so exciting! My oldest sister Martha and her family came to town from North Carolina. I haven't seen them in about 3 years, so it is super fun to have them here.


A few of the cousins waiting by the window to see the plane land.

The relief and love is very clear in my mom's face.

And then I remembered why it is best for everyone that Martha lives half way across the country. When we get together things get a little cookoo. (where is Martha? oh there are her hands... uh) lol

When I was growing up everyone told me I look exactly like my big sis, and you can see the resemblance... =) look at those smile lines! We only have her here for a few days, so we are off for more adventures... more to come I am sure!

How fun to be able to see your sister that you haven't seen for 3 YEARS!! I would die! I actually don't think you two look anything alike, however I don't know her, and the resemblance might be in the way you move, or talk or whatever...you know how that goes. Anyway, your Mom looks so happy to see your sis. Love that picture!

This is Colette Roundy I am Michelle's sister. I love your sister Martha although, last I heard she was in Hawaii. So glad that you get to hang out with her. Ask her if she remembers the time we had girls camp on Cedar Mountain and I made her go out with me to the "outhouse" and we saw something in the trees! Good times :) Tell her I said Hi.

I really enjoy reading your blog, keep up the good work.
