On the 15th of December I flew out to Oregon to visit my parents. Unfortunately, there were snowstorms in other parts of the country, causing both of my flights to be delayed. It ended up taking me almost twelve hours to get from DC to Portland. Oh well, such are the joys of traveling in the winter time!
Mom and Dad were very happy to see me. They had waited for me to arrive so that I could help them put up their Christmas decorations. The picture below was taken on Sunday after church.
Mom liked having this nativity set from Mexico up so much she decided to keep it out year-round.
Here's Mom posing with the lovely Christmas flower arrangement that Lissa sent her.
Kent and I flew back to DC on December 31st. We're glad we were able to spend Christmas with our parents. It's nice that they only live 45 minutes apart from each other!
