My daughter, Tiffany and her family returned to Chicago this morning at 6:00. They will arrive at O'Hare Airport at midnight, Chicago time. It will be cold, very cold.
However a good hunk of Christmas day was spent at Koolina Beach. Although they did get to experience the "Hawaiian rainy season" the sun came out enough that they were able to get three wonderful beach days in. KC was upset each day when it was time to leave the sand and surf. It's hard to believe that a year ago, she was afraid of the sand.
When they saw this little sand snowman that someone built, it reminded them of what awaited back home.
The house is awfully quiet now. We've put everything away. There was a downpour this morning when they left, but the sun has peeked through this afternoon.
I keep hearing KC's voice echoing off the walls.
