They're Ba-ack

It's that time of year again, and hallelujah that it came earlier this year than usual. MY TEENAGERS ARE BACK!! They were only out in California 2 weeks this time, but it always seems longer than it actually is. (How we'll survive college and missions, I don't know. Maybe cloning will be viable by then.) Shnookies 3 and 4 were beside themselves. They decorated the garage with Welcome Home signs, and they made Boozer a T-shirt to wear. Pics:

Doesn't Shnook 2 look so much older? She got a chic new do, which we l-o-o-o-v-e! And Boozer wearing clothing? I could not stop laughing. UNTIL...he went in the back yard and it got in the way of his 'business.' Not pretty.

The boy was so happy to be reunited with his dog. I may frame this pic, since I caught him actually smiling.

So they got home Sunday late afternoon. On Monday morning early, Shnookie 2 went to Especially For Youth (a week-long conference for teens) in Logan. Shnookie 4 was NOT happy about this arrangement. She's quite sure we did this just to tick her off. And when her brother left on Wednesday for a 4-day scout camp, that was all the confirmation she needed of her conspiracy theory. She may never trust us again.

I can't believe how big and grown up those two look! You're going to have to lock T away soon before the boys start knocking....

Erin! I love your blog! This is your niece Jeni, I thought I'd clarify in case you know a bunch of us. Anyhow, I sent your link to my sisters and they all love it too.

I totally understand the joy of a teenager's return...Hannah was in Oregon with Becky (at girl's camp and playing with family) for 2 weeks! I missed her so much and she was so sad to come home (I almost had to send her back to her "true" family.)
