It was such a blessing to get to spend the days surrounding Christmas at a b-e-a-u-t-i-f-u-l house right on the gulf. To make it better I was there with with my family... my WHOLE family (minus one cousin). Anna Kate loved having Mommy, Daddy, Granna, Granddaddy, Uncle Brian, both sets of great-grandparents, Auntie Pam, Great Uncle Hank, and cousin Kevin there. She was certainly not starved for attention!
About 1:00 p.m. on Christmas Eve, I was stricken with a terrible stomach virus. Unfortunately about four hours later it hit Chris as well. Needless to say, we both missed out on the Christmas Eve festivities with the family that night. It was so hard especially to be away from little Anna Kate on such a special night. I was SO thankful though to have so many people there to continue to make it special for her in our absence. I had to rely on my mom for a couple pictures from that night. Getting ready to go to bed so Santa could come!
