We had a very happy holiday. It was full of excitement of Santa's arrival with all of us in full "Believe" mode! So much fun! Since Andy was not 0n-call this Christmas, so we hit the road for Christmas in Minnesota at Nana and Pops' house. This took a small village to accomplish! You should have seen our car. There were visits with the entire MN family and later visits with the entire Rikkers family. We made a stop at Dells for a day of waterpark fun with their Rikkers from Boston cousins! That was fun...I made sure to stop in at the spa. Boy, it is quite a shocker to go from a spa to the waterpark. But I did enjoy some quiet time.
Our Sweet girlsTessa's absence was definitely felt. It did help to have the social report to share with all of our family and friends though. I wondered if they were celebrating Christmas there when we were or not. I wondered if she ripped open a present or not. Last Christmas I said to myself, she will be here next year...next year came and went, now I can say with certainty that next Christmas we will be together with our family complete!
Here are some photos for you of our holiday.....wishing you a blessed new year ahead!
