Another Hoddesdon Hangout!

My Aunt Anne loves to dig up family relations that have gone astray over the years. We love that she does this too- especially because it has lead us to Jean, Trevor and their jubilant family here in England, just outside London. Whenever we are stopping through the area, which is relatively often for being across the ocean, we call in for a little visit. We love our little rendevous' here. Its always a non-stop, action packed adventure catching up, looking at photos both old and new, and getting together with their hilarious, fun, welcoming children and grandchildren. They're a real hoot.

On this particular visit Jean and Trevor were nice enough to pick us up at the airport- what a lovely feeling! We came back to their festive house for a delicious lunch and a bit of relaxing before the whirlwind visit of their wonderful family. By the time everyone had gone home for the evening, my belly as full of Christmas cake and tea, and my cheeks hurt from all the laughing!

The following day we were treated to a scrumptious Christmas lunch at a beautiful old manner decked out fore the Holidays. It was the perfect way to end our short visit and it really felt as though we got to share in the Christmas celebrations with Jean and Trevor! We can't wait to visit again!

ps. There's a post everyday until we get home on the 21st! Woohoo!

GG is here and enjoyed your posting with some of her long lost and now found relatives.

I imagine without family and friends, your European visit would have been double or triple the cost of the Asian countries.

yeah for family and friends!!!!!
