why you ask?
there are many reasons 12.16.10 is marked in many red circles on my calendar.
it is the start of reunions / celebrations / love all around.
let me show you ..
#1. Laura & Alex
they are flying in the eve of the 16th.
welcome back to LA.
i have missed my big sister oh so much.
we will talk. cuddle. eat. shop. laugh.
and so much more.
i will be waiting for you at the airport ready for a big squeeze!
#2. Jacob Barlow
this guy is driving in on the 16th.
luckily he has his sister kim for company this time.
i really like when he is in california.
#3. Robbie & Hannah Hamill
i havent been in the Hamill presence for over 2 YEARS.
that is just TOO long.
they fly in on the 24th and you can bet i will be right at the Terrill home that afternoon for a long overdue hug and reunion!
#4. Braden & Heather Hatch
they are driving in from the AZ on Christmas Eve.
this makes my heart SO happy.
the little puppy will sadly not be accompanying them on this road trip.
maybe another time.
#5. Warner Christmas 2010
this was my LAST Christmas at home before my mission.
2 years away from my family at Christmas time has been hard but so wonderful at the same time.
instead of calling and hearing their voices like the past 2 Christmas' the Warners will all be TOGETHER!
this is what Christmas is all about.
celebrating the Savior Jesus Christ.
i love this time of year.
i am so grateful my mission helped me realize how precious this season really is.
i am SO excited my family will ALL BE together.
i cant say it enough.
these next weeks of family & friends is gonna be the best.
