This year we celebrated Liess Family Christmas on New Year’s Day. Where are our NYE pictures, you might be wondering? Rose ended up being sick on New Years, so we didn’t take many pictures. We did have the Connors and the Reagens over.
Our Christmas was a little different this year than in years past. Normally we do our thing in the morning and then join the Reagens and Liesses in the afternoon to celebrate Nate’s birthday. This year the Reagens were traveling, so we did our thing most of the day and then join Mimi & Papa at Perkins for dinner, before driving around to look at some Christmas lights.
This evening we celebrated Solstice by going for a night hike at Jester Park. They lined a short trail with lanterns and luminaries and then had hot chocolate and smores afterward.
Time for our annual Costco Christmas tree!
For the second year in a row, we went to the Connors’ for Thanksgiving, in Kansas City. Fun was had.
I guess a more apt title for this post would be “Beggars Night 2019,” but I feel like I am already committed. This year we trick-or-treated on a Wednesday night. Elliot, Lucia, and Rose dressed up and ventured out and Andrew and Mari stayed home to pass out candy.
