Happy Holidays from Kate & Tony Thomas!
Christmas came early at the Thomas house! Last week, I got the best gift I can imagine…Tony surprised me and flew our daughter, Katherine, home for Thanksgiving! She was planning to stay in LA for Thanksgiving and come home for the Christmas holidays. Apparently, she and Tony were talking on the Tuesday before Thanksgiving and hatched a last minute plan for her to come home after finding a cheap flight online. I was talking on the phone with her, listening to her complain that she was the only person still at work on the day before Thanksgiving when the front door opens and in walks Katherine! The whole neighborhood probably heard me squeal. I know there will come a day when we won’t all be together to celebrate a holiday, but for this year, I am thankful to have both of our kids home with us.
Last week Tony got the best gift he can imagine too! After 6 months without our sweet beagle Maggie, we decided that maybe it was time to get a new dog. We headed to a shelter in Westerville that was recommended to us and there we found an adorable 3 year old beagle who could be Maggie’s twin! Her name is Daisy and she has delighted us all. She is sweet natured, likes being around people, and is quiet (except when left in her crate!). We are still working on the crate thing…stay tuned!
Wishing you and your family a joyful holiday season!
Kate & Tony
