Holiday Travels

The winter perma-cloud has settled over southwest Ohio, and the days are short and dreary. We've been slow to get into the Christmas spirit, with not one Christmas decoration up, not one Christmas card written, and a slew of last-minute Christmas shopping/crafting yet to finish.

All of this dreariness was set aside for a moment last weekend as Ted and I travelled to the DC area for three days. We met our newest nephew, played with our other quickly-growing nieces and nephew, brunched with old friends and new babies, and mingled with extended family.

And of course, we made the obligatory lunchtime pit stop at our favorite chicken joint, El Pollo Rico.

Seriously delicious

The highlight of the weekend was probably all the time we got to spend with our two nieces and two nephews who live in the area - though they rarely hold still long enough to snap a photo:

It's good to see them so active, though. :)

We head out to Oregon next week, so I'll post a Christmas update sometime while we're there.  Until then...
