    Been there, done that (only 2 kids though, not 6) I feel for ya sister! My worst moment was driving through Chicago during a freezing rain storm. Seth (2 at the time) had a major blowout (up to his neck). Had to change him in the freezing rain, cold clothes from the trunk. Ah, memories, light the corner of my mind….

    Praying for you all!

    Here’s what you do, Mrs. Ig… I know it’s a difficult concept, but ya gotta shut off the computer and declare a Family Nap! It only works when it’s tried! And when you all wake up, try real hard to enjoy a blog-free visit with Grandma Sally!

    Why is it that when they make their saddest face possible but still look uber-ultra-cute…we laugh at them?!

    He is absolutely adorable Jen. Now, where’s the pic of you after this drive, huh?

    He’s looking pretty sad, but why is it that I imagine that the rest of your gang is happily chatting at Grandma Sally’s? Except for maybe you – you I imagine need a nap!

    Ohhhh, makes me want to come up to MI and give him a big kiss on those cranky little cheeks. We drove 7 hours in the daytime and we STILL came out looking like that! haha

    Actually we are having a great time. We are in what is called the President’s Inn, near Ashland. But Nancy is talking us into coming out THERE, western KY. We’ll seeeee. Happy Thanksgiving tomorrow. We NEVER EVER EVER spend the holidays together!! Waaaaaaah.

    Aww! Hope you’ve gotten some rest. It’s 18 hours home for us. At least I’m not traveling with a baby this time. Just two teens and a 7 year old who thinks she’s a teen!

    That is what we look like

    after we drive straight through from west MI to southern MS. It ain’t pretty!! Glad you all arrived safely and in time for the arctic weather.

    Happy Turkey Day!

    JoAnn(who now has to cook an entire turkey day meal because bad weather is keeping us from traveling)

    Awwww…..Little King James just needs some hugs and kisses from Miss Julie!!! I could hold that little guy all day long…he was such a little snuggle muffin last week! I miss him already….

    You guys have a great time in Michigan — tell the Spunky fam hi from me! And if you get a wild hair and want to spend even more time in the van…hop on over my way! Don’t you need to go visit Geoff’s other family members soon? I have a hide-a-bed now…. :o)
