|Yes, that was our car. Stuck.|

It was nice that the snow days came right before Winter Break, but I would have much preferred being able to get out and head to our destination for the holidays. I feel like holidays are the hardest time to be away from family. You miss all the traditions, the games, the food, and ultimately the time together. There is a void there when you can't celebrate with the people who have been in your life the longest. We were fortunate to have Shanna's parents come and visit us over the break. Ryker especially loved having Gma and Grandpa here to play with and spoil him. We celebrated Christmas a few days early as we were heading to Israel for a week with them. Shanna enjoyed that they brought along many of her maternity clothes and protein bars that cost an arm and a leg here. I think now more than ever, we are grateful for family that supports us, cares for us, and loves us.
|Our Christmas tree. Trust me, we had gifts.|
