Dan and I are very happy because our big present is... a week off together starting today. Yay! But the weather is conspiring to keep us inside for a while.
I haven't driven the car for over a week, and the only way we were able to get over to my mother-in-law's house for Christmas was by getting a ride with relatives in their giant monster car (otherwise known as a Suburban).
We ate turkey, opened presents, and enjoyed each other's company. I particularly enjoyed watching my niece and nephew opening their gifts.
After a bumpy ride home, I lit my candles and spent some quality time with Ella.
I look forward to seeing my family in Portland soon, but I'm waiting on the weather to figure out when and how I will get down there.
I hope to post again soon. My camera is full of pictures of the snow, and I want to share them with you before it all melts.
Love and good wishes to everyone!
