We got up and got ready early this morning, even though the hardest thing in the world for me is saying goodbye to the Ks. So hard.
This was my final photo before we left. (Love them!!)
Maddie was SO good traveling to and from Texas. That's a long time for a three year old to be in a vehicle. I could envision at least one melt-down on the road, but that NEVER happened. She was SO good!! On the way to Houston, she would say, "Mrs. Jacquie? I wanna go see Kale and Kayla!" and then on the way home, she was saying, "Mrs. Jacquie? I wanna go home!" Precious.
JoJo and White Cloud were so sweet to go pick up our dogs from the kennel and take them to our house so we could have them home with us tonight. Thanks, Jodi and Gary!! (They even left our porch light on for us!)
Someone was happy to be home!
I can't even describe in words how much this weekend meant to me. I am so grateful that we all got to be together for Christmas. I hadn't seen Kayla in almost 4 months (and Kale in 3 months)! We had so much fun... one of my favorite moments was when we were driving together in the car and an old song came on ("I Want To Know What Love Is") and when it came to the chorus we ALL just started singing (loud) together. It was so funny! I love my family so much!!
Thank you, Lord, for a safe trip and some special, sweet moments with my family! I also want to thank those of you who told me they would pray for our safe travel... that meant SO much to me!!
