As usual our trip at home was filled with thousands of memories and only a handful of pictures. And we are ok with that.
We managed to get out on Tuesday morning after a looooong wait in the ticketing area. It was a really surreal experience trying to get on that flight and then finally making it home. When we headed home on Monday with no flight and no hope, I did not cry but rather started planning how to get a tree and some food in the house so that we could have Christmas at home. When the guy behind the desk told us he didn’t have to put us on the standby list but could get us actual seats on the flight, I promptly burst into tears!
So Andrea’s Christmas Hero of 2010 is:
Whataburger taquitos and coffee- apparently I eat like a trucker when I am in Texas.
We met our good friends Kate and Adam for breakfast. They used to live in London and now they are living in Chicago- the chances of us being in the same city at the same time are slim and it was great to catch up! This is me and Kate in All Good Cafe in front of their Texas flag!
Lunch at Le Madeline with Mom, Nana, Aunt Carolyn and Jake. They have the best Tex-French food in the world. Jake picked it. No lie.
