Last week, we headed down to Williamsburg VA so Jack could meet his Nana and to celebrate his first Forth of July! Let's just say they hit it off with a boom and bang just like fireworks. Jack and Nana had so many "chats" and laughs, it's like they've been life long friends! He couldn't have been happier.
Last week, Pete and I were able to leave frigid Washington D.C. for the entirety of the week and visit my dad in Hermosillo, Sonora - the land of clear blue skies and sun, the land of Taco Fish, the land of Sonoran Style Steaks, the land of Palo Fierro (the most beautiful hardwood)! We all had a great time celebrating Christmas! Pete cooked a feast of cinnamon spiced salmon, green beans, mashed potatoes, cooked carrots and green apple with spiced cranberries salad. There was tres leches cake and flan for dessert but we didn't get to it until the following day. And you can certainly bet there was lots of cheering (Dilly Dilly!) as we all toasted to the coming year.
At last, we finally got our holiday cards out (just barely in time)! Later today, our New Years/Gender reveal go into production! And since we're obviously feeling the holiday joy of spreading good tidings we have to add that just this past friday, our sister Ilse got engaged up in Northern Michigan! To top it off, in a few days, we'll be off to Mexico to celebrate Christmas to be with, the soon-to-be, grandpa Devereux! Jolene will be spending her Christmas with her Halbrook grandpawrents in Maryland where she loves running up and down the stairs, gets plenty of attention and has the run of the yard. So all is indeed feeling merry and bright. Here's to wishing you a happy holiday season! Cheers!
We may not have a tree up at home, and we may be late on our holiday card printing, but we made it to a meet & greet with Santa Paws this past weekend - a great event put on by Compass Realtors Mandy & David along with the Humane Rescue Alliance, the organization through which we found our babe, Jolene! What was her Christmas wish to Santa, you ask? It's a secret, but most likely for all the nuggets in shelters to find their forever homes soon. We sure are grateful for the joy she brings!
