Early Christmas in Atlanta, GA
Yesterday, Liz and I arrived in Atlanta, GA along with Tricia, Paige and Audrey. Because of the big snowstorm in Chicago, Tricia and the kids trekked over to our apartment and spent the night last night. We all packed our stuff into my car, and I drove everyone over ot the Logan Square stop.
Today in Atlanta, we had an early Christmas with Liz’s dad Kirt, her stepmother Anne, and her siblings Jackson and Isabelle. The past few years, this tradition has been in Kansas City… but this year, the celebration was in a new house in a new state.

Napoleon, who’s always incredibly patient and cute.
When Dora’s on the television screen, it gets serious. Check out the intense concentration.
Dinnertime, Kirt and Anne prepare the big meal while Liz helps serve.
A view of the dining room – the food was outstanding, as usual. I was incredibly stuffed at the time of this photo.
Possibly one of my favorite photos of the entire weekend right here.
