Gwen, the boys, and I have had quite a holiday season, and I figured I would sit down for a few minutes and update you all on how it went. For Christmas, Gwen and I drove out to Indianapolis to spend time with my family. We stayed with my sister Sarah and Brother-in-law Chris, along with my Mom and Dad. This was the first chance that William and James had to really meet their extended family; not surprising, they were a huge hit! We were able to make it over to my Grandma’s house for Christmas Eve, which is when my Dad’s family traditionally gets together. It had been years since I’d been able to attend, and having Gwen and the twins there made it doubly special. While we were there, my Dad made several of his special dishes, including Lasagna and Sauerbraten. I feel like I gained 15 pounds last week! Also while we were out there, Gwen and I went to see the new Star Wars movie with Dad. We all really liked it! I think it is a definite improvement over the prequel movies, but I’ll save more detailed impressions for another post.
A couple of days after Christmas, though, we had to head back to Virigina. I had to be in to work on Monday the 28th, plus we still had to celebrate with Gwen’s family. The week has flown by, with all kinds of last minute preparations to see to. Fortunately, we were able to get it all done, and had a great New Years celebration with Gwen’s parents. We are still trying to dig out the house from that one!
All in all, Gwen, William, James, and I are doing great, and getting our 2016 off to a great start. I can’t wait to see what the year has in store for us! And, as usual, you will find another gallery of cute pics of the boys with their family ;).
Until next time…
