Merry Christmas!

The Word became flesh and made his dwelling among us. We have seen his glory, the glory of the One and Only, who came from the Father, full of grace and truth.
John 1: 14

Happy Christmas Eve!

We enjoyed having my sweet Aunt Blanche and cousin Britt for Christmas Eve dinner. I hope we've started a new tradition.

(New goal for 2012 is to find Britt a man so she won't move to a bigger city when her nursing contract is up next November!)

Drew planned a really special New York trip to celebrate our 20th anniversary. Brant managed the Bigs while also studying for exams and my dear friends, Jena and Keith, took in the Littles
for the duration. As if they didn't have enough to do wrangling their own 6 kids.

We visited our old building at 865 First Ave, ate at several old neighborhood favorites, saw three shows (all of them amazing---and yes, Harry Connick, Jr. is just as gorgeous in person), toured the 9/11 Memorial, did a little Christmas shopping.....and made a concerted effort to eat all the delicious types of food we can't find any where around here.

Five days away with my husband was just the thing I needed to finish out 2011.

Thanks, Drew. Here's to 20 more.
