Some of you may know that my son Ian and I made a mad dash to Dallas and back last week. My sister and her husband adopted four children and the court date came up too late for us to fly. So I picked Ian up at college and off we drove, making it in only 2 days. The following day was the big adoption, with a party our family threw for them on their return. We left to come back to Florida on Friday morning and made it safely home last Saturday night (late!). Getting ready for Christmas after that trip has been a bit of a challenge, but we managed to pull off most of the things that had to get done.
However, I could not have missed the adoption party for my new niece and nephews!!! They are the best bunch of kids and I couldn’t be happier for the entire family! It certainly brought home the true meaning of Christmas to my family and me: Love.
I hope each of you have a wonderful Christmas and a Happy New Year!
