Home Again, Home Again

Hello friends! I am updating this from my parent's incredibly comfy Lazy-Boy while watching season two's episode of LOST. Heat is on inside and snow is falling outside, fire crackling downstairs. Much different from the sunny and warm New Zealand!
After a 48 hour Monday, we arrived in Detroit and had quite a welcoming committee of family waiting for us. Coming down a very busy escalator, outbreaks of clapping, screams and cheers erupted. Andrea, Ryan's sister, was actually jumping up and down. The signs were cute, too. It was wonderful!!
We were able to spend time with Ryan's family yesterday, and we spent the evening with Rochelle and Drew, his sister and brother-in-law, getting to know our niece Makenna. She is a doll! We played all evening and are now very good friends.
We are back at my parents tonight. Dad and I went snow-shoeing on their lake which is frozen over, very fun.
We will keep our blog as updated as we can so everyone can keep up with us. Thanks to everyone who saw us off at the airport! Please keep in touch!
