Mississippi Christmas: Part 1

My girls
Kristin and Thatcher saying goodbye, as we dropped Thatcher off at Kristin’s parents’ place on Friday before flying to Mississippi to visit with my parents for the holiday.

The traveling was going great until we arrived in Memphis to discover that our 7:50pm flight was delayed until 9:43pm. We didn’t take off until just before 10.
Delayed ...

Kristin was not amused.

The airport was deserted.

Fortunately, there were interesting things to see like this friendly fellow.

…and this twister:

We finally made it home around midnight. The next day Jason and Maria Jose came to visit us and I got to meet little Anna face to face for the first time. I think she recognized me from iChat. Here’s a picture of her and her dad:

We went for a sushi lunch with Jason and Maria Jose:

Anna was throwing back the drinks:

After lunch we went to visit Santa at the mall. Anna didn’t like him much:
Get away!

Here’s me and Anna and the sun:
Anna & me

And here’s Anna saying “Hi, Uncle C.K.!” It sounded like a squeal, but I’m sure that’s what she meant.

    Is Thatcher named after the ex-PM of the UK (Margaret Thatcher)? If so, I hope it is a female dog (expecially given what I think of Mrs. Thatcher).

    We had a layover in Memphis too over the holiday travels, albeit much shorter than yours. Saw the same sign about the shelter and the wife was amused as well.

    Thatcher’s full name is Prime Minister Thatcher Sample. ;-)
