One Last Hoorah!

Man....maternity leave sure goes by fast!  I go back to work this Monday.  Jak, Lillan and I finished up my 12 weeks off with a Hanou-Kerschen, Indiana-Michigan trip combo.  You read that right....I flew alone with two babies back to Indiana!  It really wasn't hard at all.  Jak continues to be the most easy going baby I've ever met.  Lillian on the other hand keeps me busy!  We spent a night in Indianapolis and got to show off the babies to their great grandpa.  Then Gramma, Opa and I drove with Jak and Lily to Michigan to visit the Kerschens and Coopers!
Mike and I have said it a dozen times in this blogbook...but it needs to be mentioned again.  We are sooooo lucky to have such great family!  My parents bend over backwards to help organize family get-togethers for us.  And Mike's family all rallied around and made our weekend in Michigan a top priority in their lives.  Cathy was an awesome host as usual.  We had such a great time.

Everyone fought to have their turn holding Jak...Grandma Kerschen didn't want to let go!
Best picture of Layla...she's such a proud older cousin!

Uncle John...the baby whisperer...
Grandma Cooper brought big smiles on Jak
Best Halloween costume....Layla is a slow no wake buoy.  Her own idea...I kid you not.
Lillian's first tea party.
Johnny and Aunt Candy having headstand contests...seriously she's pushing 50 and still rocking out handstands!
Lillian had to get in on the action.
We had such great weather!  Johnny made me run around the cul-de-sac twice!
Sadly, Mike's Aunt Catherine passed away while we were visiting Michigan.  These Kerschen girls all have Catherine in their name in honor of Great-Great Aunt Catherine Stoffer.  What amazing timing that we were all together to take this photo for her.
