Christmas miracle

Saturday was an anxiety filled day for us. Our daughter, Caley, arrived in Toronto from Seoul. It seemed doubtful due to the rain and pending freezing rain that she would fly out later that day for Fredericton. Also, many flights were cancelled because of fog and bad weather in the destination airports around the maritimes. We had tickets to and attended the Celebration on Ice show which did help to take our mind of it even though we occasionally checked our phones for flight updates.
Well we couldn't believe it when her flight was a go. Of course I followed the flight path all the way in to Fredericton on line!

Yesterday, we made the 3 hour trip in the storm to pick her up. It took 5 hours going and 4 returning. She was excited to see all the snow. In the car she kept us amused by speaking in Korean and commenting on the weird things Canadian's do. Everything is so wide open here and our buildings seem short to her. She has been in Korea for over 2 years.
So now my Christmas can begin. We only await the arrival of our 2 sons and their partners.
Merry Christmas to all.
