Early Christmas in Virginia

On Friday evening, December 16th, Darryl and I left St. Louis ice storm and headed east toward Virginia to spend an early Christmas with Skye, Ryan and their girls. The roads were so bad that Missouri closed their interstates. Of course after 10 minutes on the road we were in Illinois and we didn't know if the roads were opened or closed. We traveled about 40 MPH for the first 25 miles then saw dozens of cars and semi's that had slid off the road and traffic had stopped. Four hours later we had traveled another 19 miles and pulled off the road at a truck stop for some sleep. We slept for a couple of hours and by 3:00 the ice was melting and we were back on the road. Darryl was in his truck pulling the trailer and I followed in my van. We got to Skye and Ryan's around 5 p.m. Saturday evening.

We went to church with them on Sunday,

Christmas Shopping in Lexington on Monday,

And Monday evening we had an early birthday for me,

And opened Christmas gifts. It was a short visit, but so very fun with these two little cherubs!

We left Tuesday at noon for North Carolina and to Spend Christmas with Darryl's Mom, Peggy

And with Shiloh and Cami and all the Guffeys.
