Welcome Back Everyone!
Again it has been too long. I had quite a bit going on this long weekend, and a few updates that I would like to share. As for the Christmas holiday we started Saturday morning, bright and early. We woke up and headed to my wife’s home town at about 8 am. We were having breakfast with her father, his girlfriend, their baby, and her sister. It ended up being more of a brunch since we got there at about 10:30 am. They already had an egg bake of some kind in the oven when we got there. It was delicious! It had hash browns in it as well as veggies, and cheese. My wife and I brought a cinnamon role crock pot desert that turned out better than expected, since we were in a rush to get it done. It was a great way to catch up with everyone and play with the baby. He is about 8 or 9 months and is a solid child haha. He is just learning how to stand and say a few words. If I’m not mistaken I think he has a few teeth in there too.
After brunch we headed over to her mothers house to open gifts and have lunch with her grandparents. It was ok for the most part. There really isn’t anything to do there and it gets boring easy. We normally do things at her grandmother’s house, down the street, but she was sick of cooking for people so we had it all at her moms. Again it is nice catching up with, and seeing everyone. This year we did it a little different then years past, and didn’t stay the night. We took off about 3:30 pm and headed back home.
The rest of the night was uneventful. The next morning we woke up and made some breakfast and felt weird because we weren’t with anyone’s family for the first time….ever. We were going to my parents house at 1 pm and meeting up with my brother, his fiance, and their 3 month old baby. My mother cooked up a turkey and we had a fairly quick lunch. We would have stayed a bit longer to watch a football game but it wasn’t on TV. We just live up the street so we went home and put all our stuff away. Later that evening my older brother and parents came over to our place. He hadn’t seen our new house yet so he was able to get the full tour.
As for an update, since we had Monday off my wife and I took that opportunity to get work done. My dad and brother came over and we leveled and cut my fence to height. The only thing left to do with that is paint it come spring time. Ore giant hole in the wall made great progress as well. We decided it was good enough to paint finally. While we were at it we taped the whole kitchen and painted the whole thing. All that is left to do is paint the dining room side and install the lights. Eventually the contractor will have to come back to finish the caulking and secure the counter top, but for now it will work fine. We may get some trim for the edges but we aren’t sure yet. I hope to install the lights tonight if I’m feeling up to the task. I know my wife would like that. I will also touch up any spots of paint if need be.
I hope you all had a great weekend and spent time with your families and loved ones. I’m glad to see you back, and I’ll see you again tomorrow! 😀 😀
