The Toppling "Wall of Peace" and Our Return Home

As I walked into my basement for the first time in 2 weeks, an inviting citrus aroma permeated the dark atmosphere. The smell was tantalizing, yet foreign to my husband's messy domain. Then I remembered that Mist and Fiery had taken the time to pick up five boxes of golden grapefruit for me a couple of weeks before. The opportunity had come, and they didn't want me to miss it. They also built fires in our house daily and fed the cat. We had offered them money for that service, but they refused, insisting that "it was about time they got the chance to do something for us." What good friends they are.
The trip home was uneventful, other than that the children were sad to leave their paternal and maternal grandparents homes. They were equally sad to leave their cousins, Auntie Heather Feather and Uncle Ninja.
My husband had stacked the Suburban high with presents we'd gotten. When he ran out of room, he began to fill the seats in between the kids. In the seats of the old Suburban furthest back, Super Catman and Artdog had a "Wall of Peace" separating them, also dubbed as "The Punch Protector". This worked well except for the times it toppled over. Getting groceries also proved to be a challenge, and we spent the last hour inundated with grocery bags.
I have HUNDREDS of photos. I will be putting them up on my blog for some time to come! I'm thankful we're back safely, but we all miss our family there. I'm looking forward to reading up on everybodies blogs now that I'm home :-)
Above Photos include : "The Wall of Peace", The Trip Home, My Mom and Dad Outside With Grand kids, Baking Cookies, A Walk to The Barn.
