More Holiday Adventures

Well we eventually made it into Kansas amidst the blizzard white out that gave our pilots less than 1/4 mile visibility. We were one of the last flights in on Saturday, and Brad's grandparents from St. Joseph, MO came to pick us up from the airport. They were able to come get us, but the dangerous conditions and multiple pile ups on the highways forced our way home not too feasible as visibility neared zero in the white out. We went a little south and pulled off to a shopping center to warm up at the bookstore and grab dinner to hopefully let the weather clear up, which didn't happen. Luckily Brad's aunt & uncle who live in North Kansas City who graciously agreed to take us all in for the night.

The next day we finally headed to St. Joseph, MO to G&G Wilson's and that night had dinner with both sets of grandparents and some extended family. Some of the pictures here are Brad's cousin Lori's children - Emily (4), Nicholas (16 mos). They were so sweet to him!

This morning we headed south to Wichita, KS and saw all the snow the storm left behind as it started melting off. We wanted to introduce Braden to the snow, so we took him out to make a Braden Snow angel. We wish you all a very Merry Christmas, and hope to have postings later this holiday as we head on to see more family and celebrate the New Year. Thanks for keeping up with us, we wish you all a prosperous and fulfilling New Year!! God Bless!
