img_2280Frenchie and I actually arrived in Portland very early Tuesday morning despite the countries travel troubles! I have never felt so lucky. All weekend I had been worried about our trip and sure that we were going to get stuck in an airport somewhere. I was actually more afraid of being stuck somewhere than not getting to Portland at all. I definitely would have picked having the holidays alone in Boston over spending days in airports. We saw a lot of people sleeping in the airport and heard some crazy traveling stories.

The reason for all this trouble was of course the Winter Wonderland that is occurring on the West Coast right now. They had 2 feet of snow in Portland which NEVER happens. There is no snow plan here and it is very hilly so getting around is tough. We are going to brave the weather tonight for our families annual Christmas Eve dinner at Hunan’s Chinese restaurant. This has been a family tradition for who knows how long on my mother’s side of the family.

What are your Christmas traditions?
