Back from Texas!

...And awake, after a 20-hour nap I took after arriving home. I wouldn't have been so tired if I could have slept in JFK airport (I got there around midnight and my flight was at 11:20 the next morning), but a few minutes after I fell asleep, a security guard woke me up and said I couldn't sleep there. Huh?? People were sleeping all over the place!

Here are a few pictures of webwawa's "Big Sammich" party on the 7th. There were so many people there, and so much food, but I didn't think to take pictures until the end of the night! What was I thinking?

Pretty back yard, where nobody was devoured by mosquitos. There's Wawa!

"After" picture of the sammich ~ not a lot of leftovers.

"After" picture of the rest of the food. antivert and I ate most of those cherries when we woke up.

antivert had a nap in the kitchen.

Wawa's kitties and their eyes!

Laura Wawa is sweet, and adorable, and she has the nicest friends and animals. We felt so lucky to be there!

We Are Family

Brace yourself! The next couple of days will be a stream of family snapshots! These were taken at Cristina's in Trophy Club, on my dad's birthday.

My dad loves his grandson, and you can really see it in his face!

Here's me, with some guy who is way out of my league!

Three generations of Strickland men

Cash ate most of my dad's flan, but my dad was happy to share.

Back at home, we showered Daddy with gifts

..and cackled insanely in John's face.

More to come!
