Christmas Evening











In the late morning, we headed to Aunt Robie's house 5 1/2 hours away. Not long into the trip I was struck hard with the stomach flu. Let's just say I have never been quite that ill and certainly never in a car! Despite the sickness, we decided to keep driving. It was a miserable drive for everyone.




By the time we arrived at Robie's I was feeling better. We had Christmas all over again with Robie, Granny and Poppy, and my aunt and uncle. There were piles of presents, as the relatives are even more generous than Santa. The girls had a great time. Rachel was thrilled to open presents, any presents. She didn't care who they were for or what was inside, she just likes presents! She made us laugh. A lot. Katherine was pleased to find gifts from China - things she had admired in the shops in Guangzhou.




We had a good time at Robie's. The girls strung toys from one end of the house to the other, but they had a grand time playing. We did jigsaw puzzles, read, played, and ate Robie's excellent cooking. I'll add more pictures after I borrow Granny's camera card!

  1. Oh I am so sorry that you got that stomach bug. Todd and I both had it a few weekends ago. It was horrible. I can't imagine having it in a car. So glad you felt better when you got there. Looks like you guys have had a GREAT Christmas. Both girls are just as cute as can be. I laughed when you said you had to get more pictures from your mom's camera card, b/c I know how she loves to take pictures. :) Looking forward to some more.
