So its been a few months. I can not believe that Christmas is this week! I still have quite a bit to get done... I never have been one to do things early ;) Well I'll start from a few months ago, because I have quite a bit of catching up to do. In early October I went back to Ohio for about a week. My grandma is not doing so well and I wanted to make sure me and Hailey got a chance to see her since we knew we'd be very busy the next few months. It was nice to go home, but always sad leaving.
Since Thanksgiving was coming up I had an idea to surprise Mikes parents and show up Thanksgiving day! I had been home a few times, but Mike hadnt been home in well over a year and hasnt seen a lot of his family either. We packed up and made the 10 hour trip, we actually could have been to his parents the night before Thanksgiving but decided to stay in hotel just an hour away. The next morning we were really excited, we called his parents and they were actually trying to set up the web cam so they could skype us haha! We walked in the house like we belonged there and you could have heard a pin drop... silence! No one knew what to expect and Mikes grandma called him a choice word then gave us all big hugs!
Since we were home we met up with my sister, brother in law, and nephew to do our Christmas. I even got to give Hunter his first Christmas gift ever! I thought that was pretty exciting :) It was nice to see family once again, the older I get and have a family of my own, I realize more and more everyday just how important and valuable my family is! Until next time..
