Happy Holidays!

This time last year we were lounging on the beaches of Bali thinking about starting the process of having children. I can't believe how much has changed since then. Thank you Bali for clearing our minds and sending us in this direction.

We have had a little something under our sleeves for about a month now. We couldn't discuss this on the blog or Facebook which has been really hard... until now. We are in America! We booked tickets right after the boys were born in hopes that we would have everything squared away in time. We went down to the wire, but we were able to fly home to surprise our families for the holidays. Everyone is totally shocked and happy that we came.

It turns out that Cedric and Ezra are made for travel. They were perfect little angels for the 15 hr flight, 2 hr layover, and another 2 hr flight. It was nice to have several of our friends/colleagues on our long flight and we were able to pass the boys around a little. The flight crew on Continental was amazing and made sure that we had everything we needed. They even washed our bottles mid-flight!

We are both really excited to be home for the holidays. It has been five years since we have been with family for Christmas. We will be splitting our time between my family in Indiana and Doug's family in Ohio. We also have plans to meet up with our friends for New Years.

Happy Holidays from our family to yours!



  1. There's nothing quite like the feeling of going home for the holidays when you are living overseas. And with some special baby packages to boot! Happy Holidays all four of you. Enjoy your time and safe travels back to India.

  2. What an amazing surprise! I'll bet everyone was thrilled!!!

    Have a wonderful holiday, guys!

  3. Yay for Xmas with the fam! They must be stoked. We'll be in OH too (Bowling Green) visiting Jeff's peeps.
    Happy holiday!

  4. Hey love! I'll be in Toledo on the 25th thru the new year. Where in Ohio will you be?

  5. I wondered why you were all rushing to get the passports and visas. ENJOY your holiday and showing off those babies!!!

  6. Yay! Glad to hear you guys and the boys made it safely home! Tell Doug that Harris & I are enjoying those forgotten buckeyes! Merry Christmas, Chad!

  7. That is an awesome present to your family... I hope you have a Very special Holiday!
