We loaded up! Yes, We!

Everyone was so friendly and happy! It is such a lovely time of year!

We stopped at mom and dad's on the way back for some brunswick stew and grilled cheese!

What a lovely day together! I enjoyed our time together so much! And we ended up with the most beautiful tree ever! To go with our lighted house that Dynamo worked so hard to light up!
