Yesterday, we did a small holiday meal with Angie and Ian and my parents, along with a small gift exchange. Most people spend the holidays with their families, and Ceecee and I have kind of made it a tradition to get away and spend them by ourselves. This year, we are radically departing from that.

We did the meal with our local relatives yesterday, and we will be going to Tennessee to spend Christmas with much of Ceecee’s family there. We’ll come back and then head to Kansas to spend a few days after with Ceecee’s Mom and Step-dad and two of our daughters. Taylor is still at basic, but we did get a call from him the other night and he sounded much better. We set it up for him to call while we’re in Tennessee for Christmas, so he can talk to a lot of the family.

Ceecee received a gift from the daughter she put up for adoption and who has recently come into our lives. It was a picture frame with a baby picture in it and it meant a great deal to her. It will really be something to meet in person, which I’m sure will happen before too long.
