Well, we made it (finally)

Okay, I know that weather delays cannot be helped, but they sure SUCK! The first half of our trip went great, but once we got to Chicago, planes were being grounded or delayed left and right. Our 7:15 flight was delayed (over and over again) to 7:45, 8:30, 9:40, 10:15, and finally we were actually on the airplane at 10:40 p.m.
The boys were overall surprisingly well behaved. Heavenly Father really blessed us, though. Just about each time Brennan was getting a little too bored, another group of people came to the gate next to ours (how come all their planes could leave?) and provided new playmates for him. Jackson did okay, but he was so tired he started to get cranky. I took him for a walk in to stroller to get him to sleep, but that was a no-go. Luckily the 9:30 p.m. walk gave him enough energy to be happish until we were on the plane. He was asleep before the plane was totally off the ground, with Brennan taking about half an hour to follow suit.
So, back to guardian angels. Thanks Kathy and Wes for you help, and everybody else, too, who was put in our pathes Tuesday. I truly know these people were put on the same plane to help me be able to stay calm and not go insane. Otherwise, I would still be in Chicago, locked in the looney bin, with my two poor babies as wards of the state until Bart could get there to rescue them!
Oh, and just so you know, we landed in Jackson, MS around 1:20 a.m.
Thank goodness my mom had decided a few hours before to get a hotel room to get some sleep, instead of hanging out at the airport. We all feel right into bed when we got there...
