There's no place like home for the holidays.
And what a friendly gaze it was; so full of sunshine. I forced my sister to let her 2 kids cry a moment more while I snapped a few photos. What are uncles for?
Lacy's mood improved after a nap -that is, she was dead silent when she woke up, and didn't utter a peep for the next half hour or so.
She got bundled up for a carriage ride with Grandpa and Dad,
...went out for a ride,
...and came back, still speechless. After coming back inside, we started talking to her about her ride with Grandpa and the horsie, and she finally started talking, and she didn't stop. She wanted to go on another ride. She loved it.
The holiday break was great. I love spending time with my family. We had Thanksgiving dinner at my parents' house with all my siblings and their kids. My Mom has a nice new white vinyl fence. She loves it, almost as much as Lacy loved her carriage ride.
