I have a lot of catching up to do, so we'll skip Christmas for now and start with New Years.
As kind of a last minute idea, Dustin and our good friend John thought of having a reunion with our group of friends from college. By the next week, we had accommodations, invitations had been extended, food had been planned, and my excitement level was very high! We left Eli and Landon to spend New Years with Neva and Randy and we took off to the hill country. I think there were 19 of us in all over the three days and we had a lot of fun.
We rented some cabins in New Braunfels right on the river
Almost everyone arrived the afternoon of New Years Eve and basically over the course of the next two and a half days, we had a 42 tournament, ate a lot of food, talked, sang, relaxed, played games, caught up on each others' lives, and laughed. I laughed a lot. I normally do.
What a great time
We checked out Saturday morning and boy, was I ready to see Eli and Landon. I slept the whole way to Iraan to make the time go by faster and I ran in the door to see them when we got there. They both got huge smiles on their faces and ran right towards me...but, they went right past me and right into Dustin's arms. It's tough having to compete with Dustin...he's just so much cooler than me. They eventually let me pick them up without crying to get down and see Dad...it just took about 30 minutes.
Happy New Year!
