Holiday Photos

We are home again. We are pleased to announce that our ride back home to Virginia from our holiday stay in Ohio was rather uneventful and took only 8 hours as opposed to 30. Thank goodness.

We divided our two weeks in Ohio evenly among both families; one week at Rob's mother's house (aka Mamaw) and one week at my parent's house. We returned home January 2nd. Our visits were nice. It's a treat for Rob and I to visit with family but even more of a joy for us to see Oia build relationships and laugh with her cousins, aunts, uncles, grandparents and great-grandparents. A good time was had by all.

She loved playing with her cousins. This picture was a frequent occurrence at Mamaw's house. Oia and her cousin Colton were often caught sitting on the kitchen floor eating her favorite snack...good ol' potato chips.
