Happy 2012

Well, we are all settled back into our KAUST routine.  The Christmas break was wonderful and so restful.  It was cold most of our visit and we are having cooler weather here as well.  It is great being able to wear long sleeves and pants and not break into a sweat.

From the pictures below you will see our hotel room in New York....we ended up having to stay a night there due to a flight change.  This surprise extended layover was actually quite fun for us- the kids loved being in a hotel and we got to take a nice taxi ride around Manhatten.  The airline paid for our hotel (two connecting rooms) and food which made the delay much more bearable.  The weather was below freezing the entire 24 hours of our layover so we triple layered the kids and myself while Casey braved the weather in short sleeves.  Hopefully, if this happens again, we will get to see New York under warmer conditions; Central Park looked fabulous but it was way too cold to enjoy this trip.

Our tomato plants were in full production upon our return and we are still enjoying them.  We have planted another round as well.  We love sprinkling them with our German rosemary salt.

Happy New Year everyone!
