This year we left for St. Louis on December 29. I really liked being able to be home for the holiday season and then leaving at the end to go to St. Louis. That way we got to enjoy all the Christmas festivities and traditions as a nuclear family and also got to celebrate Christmas a second time with Grandma and Grandpa and cousins. It was perfect and I hope we can do this for most Christmases.
This is William waiting to board the plane. He did great for the entire trip.
