The year that Chris will come home. Even though we still have a ways to go, its nice to be in the RIGHT year.
To say that our Christmas vacation was amazing is an understatement. Our trip to GA couldn't have come at a more perfect time. Filled with family and friends to love on and to be loved by. Just what the 4 of us needed to mark the half way point in this deployment.
Bright and early on December 10, we flew out of SD at 7:55 a.m. Everyone did GREAT on our 4 hour flight to Atlanta. Once we landed, we hit the ground running.
First stop, the very first EVER Chick-Fil-A. Mimi and Papa took us to the Dwarf House and we filled up on CFA goodness and sweet tea.
The kiddos and Truett Cathy, founder of Chick-Fil-A.
After we settled in and adjusted to the time change, we went to see Santa and ride the famous Pink Pig at the Macy's at Lenox Mall. We met up with Aunt Ansley and Delany for our day of fun. It had been 18 months since we had seen Delany and boy, how much she had grown. Everyone was fast friends and I finally got to smooch on her precious cheeks!!
The original Pink Pig that Mimi and Papa rode when they were children. I also rode in the original Pink Pig. You are not truly a GA citizen until you take a your ride.
Our Santa visit went so well this year. Luke and Hayley were super helpers with the little ones and no one shed a tear!
Had a quick visit with my BFF from childhood, Nan, and her precious girls. Here are Hayley and Issa.
The mini version of me and Mandy!
So much more to come to document our month long visit. Such wonderful memories were made that we will all cherish forever!!!!
