The week before Santa’s big day, we were to meet “the Germans (aka Jonathan’s sister, Heather, and her family who all live in Germany)” at the Gaylord for some Christmas decoration hunting as well as meet up with Lyd and Oli, too, since we had some things we needed to exchange and G-town is a nice middle ground (well, much closer to me, but who’s counting). Unfortunately, the day just got away from Heather and the team so it ended up just being us and the Evans…still plenty of WHEEEE!
This has become B’s signature pose in her everyday stroller. Here she is last week, and also her in July when we got all dolled up to see the Alice in Wonderland Gaylord exhibit. Such a lazy noodle!
Hi, Friends! Isn’t Oliver’s tricycle stroller the coolest?
Mommy Bridget wants one so badly!
A few minutes after we arrived, Jonathan got a surprise tap on the shoulder….The Lindquists! We hadn’t seen these long lost friends in about a year (that’s what babies will do to you) and they just happened to be staying at the hotel for a fun night out together and saw us wandering. It was so great to catch up with these lovely friends!
“A day or two ago, I thought I’d take a ride…and soon Miss Bridgey Bride was sitting by my side”
This is the balcony where my wedding photographer snapped one of my favorite bridal portraits. So much fun!
Notice poor Oli’s black ‘n’ blue? Ah, the joys of early walkers…too adventuresome for their own good!
Who wouldn’t want to snuggle by the fire with this Christmas angel?? Warm fuzzies to all!
