Christmas 'Breaks' Part 2

Well, God did it again! He answered our prayers to bring Kelly all the way home to his lovely family for Christmas.
Although the gorge was closed Kelly felt like he could make it by going around Mount Hood. He and Melissa called me from the driveway in the car with all the kids. God enabled them the 'break' to get home. They did slip into town easily. And I am so incredibly grateful. This picture includes is most of the family, more joining them later in the week.

On the other hand, I spoke with Kimber who was in good spirits this afternoon. She'd taken a shower which turned out to be a family event with her husband Chris opening shampoo, conditioner, and body wash so she could let Isabella groom her. And she is in less pain today.
To be continued!

I'm so glad they made it OK. I kept praying knowing God would make a way for them.

It must have been nice to be "snowed in" at a Motel with just the two of them after such a long seperation. I'm sure they made the most of it and it ended up being a blessing!

I hope Kimber will get her surgery with the weather being so bad. Will keep praying about that as well.

Great to hear they made. Jim asked in church yesterday if Kelly was here. I shouted that they were stuck in Troutdale alone without kids....it was rather funny. I was glad to see the cute picture. I do pray they have a great time. I am glad to Kimber is taking it well and accepting the help. Now we just need to pray for your break, tots....We love you and send warm hugs.

This weather is amazing...our kids waited 2 days and then drove over on the only travel-able day all week. The next day there were 50 mph winds in Seattle. So we are grateful for their window of opportunity, too. I hope your son and family have a wonderful holiday together.

So nice for a Mama to know that her babies (no matter their age!) are all safe! Blessings to Kelly and family for an extra special Christmas together. And prayers for a faster-than-expected recovery for Kimber. . . not an easy experience with a toddler around-- forget the turkey! Love and a very Merry Christmas!
