We spent four wonderful weeks with our children, grandchildren, and families in the US. Thanks to the Mayes family, we were able to use their home in Asheville, NC, for the week of Christmas. All nine of us were able to enjoy the comfort of a home for the holidays. We even had 6" of snowfall left over from the week before for a white Christmas. This was the first Christmas for grandchildren, Riley and Wyatt. Trips to Nashville, Knoxville, and Little Rock to visit family and friends filled the rest of the time. We head back to Madrid today rested and ready to get back to work.
