Three days after arriving home from Italy Chris left for Maryland to start Christmas vacation with his family. Melanie joined at the end of the week. We had a really nice visit, spending time with family and friends, enjoying local restaurants, taking time for fitness, and generally just hanging out getting to know each other again.
On December 22, we were supposed to fly to Cleveland, Ohio to visit Melanie's family. Unfortunately, Cleveland and Columbus were both under blizzard alert, so we rescheduled to the following day. When we called the following morning to confirm our flights, we learned that all flights to Cleveland were cancelled! Fortunately, we could be re-routed to Columbus on what turned out to be the last flight to Columbus that day!
When we arrived, our luggage didn't. There was lots of snow - Mansfield got 18 inches!
The roads to and in Mansfield were awful. But, we made it! On Christmas, we gave people notes with poorly drawn pictures of the gift they would receive if our luggage ever arrived (which it did late Christmas night). So, we really had a White Christmas!
On to 2005!
