We had a great time with our families. We had our yummy Brunswick stew & peppermint ice cream lunch with the Browns.
We went to visit Santa so Connor could tell him what was on her list.
We enjoyed a yummy breakfast with Katie and Chuck Collini and their new son, Finn!
We had our annual Roseberry Christmas dinner and snapped Mom's long awaited Christmas card photo.
And on Christmas day we bee bopped back and forth several times between parents to max out the time with everyone.
Connor had an absolute ball!
As we sat in the gate in RDU waiting to get on our return flight following tearful goodbyes, we were so grateful for the visit - and the fact we actually made it to Raleigh after so many airline obstacles. But Delta had one more surprise in store for us. Our flight in RDU was delayed so much that we were guaranteed to miss our connection via Atlanta this time to Brussels. Somehow this one seemed too easy for us "experienced flight delay-ers" though. We rebooked for the next day to redo this process and went home to our parents for a precious extra night with them. We did finally make it home to Brussels - again an entire day delayed, but the way I look at it - this 2nd delay was only to catch us up timewise with the time missed on the front end with the fams. There really is no place like home!
