We’ll get back to the Danube next week, but for now, still basking in what might have been our best Christmas ever. The house and our hearts all bursting at the seams.
So great to have all the siblings together:
Although that perennial question remains unanswered…
Looking normal enough here…
Although the lineage might suggest otherwise.
And then there’s the next generation to consider:
The Floridians came to visit!
These cousins could be brothers!
My favorite Christmas moment, every year:
And Angie and Tina kept a long Christmas Eve tradition going:
Moo was here, of course:
And we got to meet Salami:
Missing our girls so much, but dear friend Rosanne sent the most thoughtful gift – photo books of them that made us all laugh and cry on Christmas Day:
We had a very special visitor on Christmas morning! Thank you, Elf!
And another visitor later that day – Freddy’s first visit to Santa Barbara:
Peter was here, too!
Caleigh and I decided she will be taller than Santa next year:
Hard to get a shot of the three sisters all sitting still:
And even harder to get one of these two sitting still!
Angie and her boys:
The only family drama of the week was the annual angst over the three-layer jello salad. Daniel and Angie are hired for life – they nailed it!
So many happy moments:
So hard to say goodbye.
But I’m already planning for next year! And maybe, (hopefully?) we’ll have a new faithful friend to celebrate with by then…
