What a year it has been. We have so many blessings and are so thankful for what this year brought us. We were able to explore our current state a lot more this year. We went skiing in March with old and new friends in Tahoe. In May, we celebrated our second anniversary in Paso Robles and Santa Barbara. In June, Jonathan's parents visited. We went to Monterey and Carmel with them for the first time, along with San Simeon. I'd never seen seals outside of Sea World or a zoo before that. We had other friends come and visit us, Tahoe, and wine country. Daniel and Lucy Jussely celebrated their 5th Anniversary in August with a trip to Napa and San Francisco. I visited home in September. In October, Jonathan celebrated his 30th Birthday. We haven't taken the hot air balloon ride yet, and we'll explain why to all of you when we're home. For Thanksgiving, we visited Disneyland to enjoy turkey legs, Space Mountain, and Mickey Mouse ice cream bars. And now, we save the best for last....a visit to all of you.
We're leaving next Thursday afternoon, 12/18, and flying into Birmingham late that night. We will be in Mississippi from the 19th through Christmas Day. We finally get to meet our new niece and nephew. Christmas Day we head to the Palmetto State, where we'll be until the 30th or 31st. We fly back on the 31st. Hope we can see you all while we're back. Delta will not be making the trip, but I thought you'd like this picture of her enjoying our holiday fireplace.
Once again, the lease on our cabin in Truckee has begun, so everyone is welcome to come skiing. We're actually going this weekend to check it out.
We love y'all and can't wait to see you soon.
Kim, Jonathan, & Delta
