Christmas this year was a succession of comings and goings. Our big kids came in a few days at a time. There was a steady stream from Dec. 21 until Dec. 29.
The first one to come in was Daniel.
He was only able to stay until Dec. 27th. He had to go back to Wilmington to begin his major winter training. They train in Wilmington for a few days, then it's off to sunny Florida. At least they hope it will be sunny because they train in an outdoor pool there.
Next came John, Jr.
He was supposed to stay until the 26th, but got called into work and had to leave the 25th.
Anna and Jamie were here on Christmas Day and sporadically throughout the holiday.
They brought their furry little reindeer, Rocko.
Lastly, Beth and her dog, Bella, came on the 26th. She had to come later in the day because it was snowing at Greg's parent's house, where they were visiting.
She had to leave on the 29th.
So the door was busy revolving for a week or so. I'm not complaining, though. I'll take how ever long I can get them. The little ones got some special time with each of their older siblings.
I finally got to see where John lives.
We walked to downtown Wilmington and shared a meal together.
