We had the merriest of holidays, filled with childhood wonder and family love. We looked at neighborhood lights, had a beautiful Christmas morning, and then headed off on our first plane ride as a family of four. We met our cousin Miles for the very first time, saw family and friends we haven't hugged in over three years, went to fun new places and familiar old ones and played and played and played. We came home to Portland and were greeted with snow, a special wish from the girls that came true just in time for New Year.
Now the decorations are down and the tree is gone (there were tears over that one, as there was last year). But it was a most special holiday, one we certainly won't soon forget. Happy New Year, Everyone!
