Christmas 2013

This year we spent Christmas with our family in Ohio. We packed up all our presents and hit the road on Christmas Eve. First, we stopped in Columbus to visit my family. We exchanged presents and then climbed back into the car and hit the road again. We arrived in Cincinnati and were greeted by family running out to the car, arms wide open, yelling "They're here!!!" Does it get any better than that?!

On Christmas day, we got up early to open presents. Lucas was ecstatic about the new car he received from his grandparents! We spent the week catching up with family & friends, checking out Cincinnati's Festival of Lights, and eating tons of delicious food thanks to Steve's mom. On Sunday, Steve and has dad went to the Ravens vs Bengals game. Rain and all, they had a blast! Lucas and I headed back up to Columbus for one more visit with my parents.

There really is nothing like being surrounded by family. We miss them already but are so thankful for the time we were able to spend together this holiday!
