Christmas 2014

OK, OK so it's a little late, but this update needed to be recorded!

We spent our first Christmas home in a fun way.  We celebrated early with the Ryan side in Cincinnati. We celebrated in Indiana with Aimee's side of the family just days before Christmas.  And we left on Christmas day for Florida (New Smyrna Beach) to celebrate with Drew's dad and sister and their family.  We also were able to run across the state to make a quick play date with a family we traveled to China with  (they gained Chloe to their family) and then spent the last bit of time in North Fort Myers Florida visiting "Great Pat", which is Aimee's Grandma, the kids' Great Grandma.  The drive to and from Florida was really best case scenario.  No complaints.  We had good weather both ways. On the way down we drove all day and on the way home, we drove all night.

First time meeting Great Pat for the Littles:

Great Pat give a great "Roller Ride"


 Gathering with Chloe and family outside of Orlando:

 Cousin time in New Smyrna Beach:

"I do it"

Levi couldn't wait until we arrived at the ocean... but when we were out there"NO water, no water"

This picture was just after we arrived, after driving all day we had told him we were going to the beach.  It was too late to actually go to the beach, that was hard to break to him!
