For the kids' first Christmas, we flew to the DC area, where Paul's
family all converged for the holidays.
Having grown up in Connecticut, even as adults the Rohr clan has
continued to return every other year for the holidays, first bringing
significant others, then grandkids.
However this time, with Jen so close to delivering her first, she
couldn't travel, so the rest of us converged on her home. She claims
this was even her idea. :-)
As usual, it was a madhouse, but it was really wonderful to be able
to spend time visiting with everyone -- including an evening out with
some of Kathy's high-school friends who also
live in the area.
Not only did we get to see our kids open presents
for the first time, but we also got a sense of what future holidays
might be like by enjoying the antics of their older cousins,
the Parke kids.
