The anticipation had been building, and the day had arrived – Colin’s first basketball game! He had been wanting to get on the court for a while, but there aren’t any programs until 1st grade. He faced his best friend’s school and gave it his all as part of the Glebe Niners!
Just as a band of snow arrived for the first time in January, the Tuckers set out for a quick escape from the cold for MLK Day weekend. The sun, sand and sea were an amazing respite before returning to reality!
We packed a lot into a short trip to Houston, including some cultural and culinary exploration, as well as time with friends to ring in the New Year!
With a few extra days off from work and school, the family headed southwest to the great state of Texas for some culture, science, friends and great food! The warmer weather was a big plus, too.
After a trip up north and some quality time at home, we celebrated a third and final Christmas with the Tucker side of the family!
For the first time in a very long while, we were at our own home for Christmas, and it was glorious! We had the turkey dinner we missed on Thanksgiving while in Finland, the kids all played nicely, and Santa made it a special day!
This year, we started the Christmas festivities in CT – complete with great family, yummy food, rambunctious kids and good, ol’ gag gifts. It was a whirlwind weekend that, as a bonus, ended with some Star Wars and Frozen 2!
Santa Claus Village was a super fun place to be based for a couple days. While the activities like husky sleds, reindeers and snowmobiling were a thrill, the village itself had a lot to take in, too. Here’s what went down at the Arctic Circle.
Hope everyone enjoys the holiday and new year festivities! It’s been one heck of a ride this year, and we’re looking forward to continuing the crazy in 2020!
