This started out pretty much like every other Sunday morning, except that it is the last one of the year and next week we go back to 9:00 church. That means we will have to get up and go, but we both still prefer morning.
Bill had not planned to go to church today, as he was heading to the airport to pick up Lisa and family. However, their plane was delayed leaving by a couple of hours, so he was able to go with me. I had my class, so had not planned to go with him. As it turned out, we left after my class, had just enough time to stop at home and change clothes and then get to the airport.
We were so excited to see everyone, especially Ashby and Brooks. They were both so excited, as well. I think Ashby chattered almost non-stop all the way from the airport to their house. They were particularly excited when we turned the corner onto their street. They had a wonderful time in Colorado with all the cousins and aunts and uncles, but they also loved getting home and seeing all their own toys and their own beds again.
We will get together on New Year's Eve and New Year's Day, I think. We will do our Christmas presents on one of those days. It is just nice to have them back home!
