Since Dave has been on break we have done the following:
Visited Santa Land on the 7th floor of Macy's in Minneapolis.
|It could have gone better.|
We made lots of Christmas gifts:
We picked up our Harrelds from the airport and went to Rochester to visit Grande and Pops:
Next day, we drove through the night and four cities to get to VA. We broke down in Charleston and had to be rescued and don't I feel grown-up now.
|Joe skyped with the Great-aunt Mel's puppet.|
|And took full advantage of "Uncle" Lora and Uncle "Dumpy"|
|Got their first music lesson.|
We got lots of thoughtful gifts.
|Were thrilled by their first annual McClure Christmas concert.|
|Singing and dancing fit to wear a boy out.|
|Abby and Lucy and Spiderman kisses. Andrea's face says it all. Bahaha.|
|You can tell who is feeding the baby.|
|Abby! ABBY! I love them.|
|What an awesome family - I wish we lived closer! But I am so glad we got to visit a little.|
It was good to get back to Riley and Joe and Dave and the rest of the family though. I am rather attached.
We have been caroling to all our surrogate grandparents, visited Lora and Darren in Christiansburg, attended church in the itty bitty Richlands branch, been swimming at the Y, and today we even got enough snow for a little sledding! Shew - no wonder I'm beat! All these danged family and friends to see and partying to be done - what's a girl to do?
This: this is what a girl's to do:
Yep. Time for bed. Cause I just said "yolo."
Nice knowing you, '13! Smell ya later!
