Because they were both traveling during the holidays they had a rare opportunity to rendezvous at my parent's house. Rick's family, Janna, and I converged on their home for a brief 30 minute encounter. It was fun to see their children interact with each another. We took pictures and talked briefly about the latest news. Then it was hugs and kisses and the Spiel's were off to visit more family and indulge in other holiday fun like the Utah vs. Alabama Sugar Bowl game. We're grateful for the happy time we had with them.
