December is just around the corner and after receiving some cute Christmas pics of our granddaughter, we can’t wait to get back and see her in person. Dec. 1st we found ourselves in Alexandria, VA to kick off the holiday season as Jesse is ready to purchase her first new car. After much exploring with Dee, she decided on a 2023 Hyundai Santa Fe. We are super excited for her. While in Alexandria, we attended National Community church, the Christmas tree lighting in the Del Ray community, and went down to the Potomac to watch the Christmas Boat Parade from the banks. It was quite the holiday event.
Next, as we head to North Carolina, we stop to get our first squeeze of Lilia. Here are some more Christmas pictures of our little sunshine. We had to of course make cookies. New Christmas Traditions are being created while a few old ones stay tack like the mouse calendar.
Lilia made a visit to Mooresville before Christmas while we were staying with my parents to see Nana and Papa and meet Cousin Carson, they seemed to hit it off together. Dee and I enjoyed catching up with lots of friends as well while we were home, but the cold weather was something we could pass on, and missed the warm sun of Mexico.
Christmas Day brought Lilia back for a visit and we were ready with a mini waffle iron and we started another new tradition for Christmas with Lilia. She helped us prepare and ate her waffle like a pro! We love all this time we are getting with her. She stayed across the weekend with us and we just could not get enough of her smile, laugh, gestures, and snuggles. Sorry this is serious Lilia overload.
Just a little more Lilia to share. The Last weekend before leaving Hannah met us at a Brewery so we could get our last time with her before boarding a plane back to Mexico with the Pharrs in tow. We will see all their fun next time.
