Expedia-Dot-Com... Do you need a vacation from your vacation?

i laughed at the expedia commercials about needing to take a vacation after thanksgiving vacation. Its so true though. we were so busy. Here's our schedule:

went to mom and dad's wednesday w/ erica (not hubby) to do cooking. Came home then to Lancaster County. Stayed up late cooking with Andrew at home. Thursday went to Andrew's family. Spent the night there. Woke up at 5:50 AM cuz erica woke up. Got selves together then drove to my family's place. Spent entire day there with my WHOLE EXTENDED FAMILY! (they came up from georgia.) Spent the night. Saturday stayed until five and then drove home. Unpacked everything and settled back in.

It was fun, though. Erica had fun playing with her cousin Joshua. He is the son of Andrew's sister. They were so cute to watch together. Its nice that both of them are progressing at about the same pace, b/c its easier for them to play. Both crawl very well, pull up on objects, etc. Oh, and Erica had a nice Thanksgiving meal. She had some shredded up turkey, applesauce, and sweet potatoes. All from the table-- not jar food. And she had a TINY bit of andrew's Grandmother's potatoe filling.

At my family, everything was HECTIC! there were over 20 people there. let me quick count... I think i'm counting 26. Erica was SO busy, busy, busy. there were six kids total (as shown in picture). You better be able to tell which one is erica! then, the boy on the far left is Nathaniel... he's erica's cousin (my brother's son). He turned One on Thanksgiving. We had a birthday party for him... which is why they all have hats on. Three of the other kids belong to my one cousin, and the littlest baby girl belongs to my other cousin.

Saturday Erica was very grouchy. She didnt sleep much during 'vacation' b/c there was so much to see and do! so, she slept a lot on Sunday. And today she's sleeping too. She didnt wake up until 8:30 (i had to go in and make sure she was still in there!). Now she's napping again.

There's another picture here of someone with erica-- is it abby or me? [This should be easy.]
