Austin & his cousin, Monkey, had a great time wrestling around in the backyard!
Grandpa & "M" are good buddies!
Noticeably missing from the celebration were Ryan & Susan. The group was told they had something to attend to, but would be there eventually. Brian and I and my parents were the only ones that really knew where they were. Dad and I anxiously (and not horribly subtly!) tracked their arrival through texts on our phones and helped get everyone in the main room as they walked in.
And they walked in with brand new roles...as parents! They walked in carrying this precious little girl!
How beautiful is she?!
Ryan and Susan met their daughter Christmas Day and got to take her home the following day. Click here for the whole story! Our family gathering happened to be on the way home, so we all got a quick peek at her before they made it home and settled in as a family!
The new daddy!
Not a dry eye in the room!
So when people asked what I got for Christmas? The Best. Christmas. Present. EVER!
