18: FIRST CHRISTMAS | Zach and Margie spent Christmas with us. We went bowling Christmas day and made the next day's edition of the Patriot-News. Andrew and Andrea were supposed to fly out from Colorado but flights were canceled by a snowstorm. So they jumped in the car and 30 hours later, arrived at our front door to celebrate the rest of the holiday with us!
