This little sweetie wasn’t part of the last goodbye, and she wasn’t here late Monday night when I took the updated photos. But this is her enjoying the snowmachine ride with Uncle Zach at -20* on the eve of Christmas Eve. The other five were on sleds being towed behind. She loves her Uncle Zach, her name for him is “Ach!”
I hope all of you had a Merry Christmas. This was a year of adjustment for our family; we are now down by 5. This was our “first” Christmas of new traditions without the Zach Keller’s, we’ve been mentally working on this coming for some time now. Anyway, the last several year’s we have had many “last” Christmas’ with them; this is supposedly the beginning of them being gone. At least that is the plan as of now – we have a whole year for things to change :). We (mom, dad, kids & I) were blessed and did just get to go spend 5 days in San Diego and then 5 days with Zach & Jane.
A fortunate 9 yr old girls dream hot drink made for her, by her Bumma this morning. This drink is Trader Joe’s Sipping Cocoa made with boiled milk, topped with Peppermint Whip Cream, a little cocoa powder, and sprinkles.
