Finally it was CHRISTMAS!! Nama, Papa, Aunty Cindy, Aunty Kristi, and Kaylee the little white dog arrived in the Jeep through the still-there mounds of snow. Yes. WE HAD A WHITE CHRISTMAS!!! (Sadly, by the time Christmas rolled around, we were all a bit...tired of it. Hmm.)
Kaylee and Maddie love Aunty Kris:
They also really love Papa:
I have really adorable parents:
My favorites from my pile of loot? A new REI backpack from Amy, a sweet book with my Europe trip pictures and emails from Mom and Dad, and the Yarn Harlot's book The Secret Life of a Knitter from Mom and Dad.
We had a lovely traditional turkey and fixin's dinner, and played Apples-to-Apples. I WON! YES! It was an altogether beautiful and joyful family day. Praise the Lord for His faithfulness!
