At Home

It has been a little crazy around here.  We returned home on Wednesday afternoon.  I thought we had a full car going into Guatemala City, but OH MY we were full coming back home!   There really is no place like home, and we are all glad to be back.  The boys traveled well, and we are thankful for that.  We have spent the last few days unpacking, and have most everything put away.  The rest we will get to, eventually.   Cruz was very excited to be back home.  He was thrilled to see all of his toys and has played with them like they were new again.   Ben is doing well also although we are thinking he is not a fan of the heat.  It has been 100 degrees and over everyday since we returned.  That might not seem so bad, but we have no a/c in our house.  We have a window unit we run at night to help us sleep, but during the day we just melt.  We are all trying to get readjusted to the climate.  

During our time in Guatemala City our mission family brought us meals every other day while we were there.  It was a HUGE blessing!  The first two days we were back home we had meals delivered by missionaries who live in our area.  That was a blessing as well.  I have definitely been spoiled!  Today we made a trip into town to purchase a few groceries.  I guess it is time to get back in the kitchen.  I enjoy cooking so I guess it won't be so bad, haha.

When not unpacking, washing clothes, changing diapers, cleaning messes, etc. we have just been hanging out and enjoying being home.  Below are a few photos from the last few days.  Although it is an adjustment, we are loving having two little boys in our home!
Here is Ben leaving Guatemala City and heading home for the first time. 

On our trip home we stopped and ate at Sarita's.  We ordered Cruz this pancake and he loved it!  I wish I would have taken another photo of him afterwards because those chocolate chip fingers were wiped all over his clean shirt.  We are trying to teach him to clean his hands with a napkin, but he really prefers his shirt.  It drives his neat freak parents crazy.

We have watched a lot of cartoons since returning.  Cruz loves for us to put Ben in his lap while watching t.v.  He loves rubbing him on the head, and playing with his feet.  He also likes helping me burp him by patting him on the back, and pats him on the chest when he cries.  He is such a sweet big brother!

Wearing their matching pajamas.  I love to dress them alike or coordinate their clothes.

Oh how we love these two!

Cruz watching Reba one night after bath time.  We have made it to season 4.  We love that show.

Poor daddy! 
Cruz loves to climb on us.  That has been a challenge for me since having surgery.  I will be glad to fully recover and be able to play with him again.

Here we are having lunch on Saturday after buying groceries.  You can see the back of Cruz's hair is fully wet.  The restaurant we were eating in did not have the a/c on.  It was like sitting in an oven!  After ordering they did bring a fan and blew it right on us.  We were thankful for that. 

I am looking forward to celebrating Mother's Day tomorrow.  I am beyond grateful to be able to celebrate as a mom.  Although it is the hardest thing I have ever done, there is no greater joy than having children.  Happy Mother's Day to all of you mom's as well.
