I know I haven't been blogging and yes, everything is fine. Very well. In fact, on Christmas Eve my husband surprised me by flying home our son who has been in Japan for 675 days or 96 1/2 weeks or 22 months and 6 days. Anyway you look at it it has been a very long time. Too long. It was so amazing just to have all the kids together at once. That hasn't happened for three years. Fortunately Liz remembered to take a picture. Then, if that wasn't enough James surprised me yet again by bringing home this beautiful girl who will make a wonderful addition to our family. Lucky us right? James is only here for two weeks and then it is back to Tokyo for more schooling. So, I know you will understand when I say life takes priority over blogging. Happy New Years to all and I will be back in about a week.
