The Holiday Season

The Holiday season has been filled with family. We kicked of the weekend before Christmas with the San Antonio Roberts' family---Steve, Lori, and Spencer. Soon after, Cami came from New York. After 2 days, Steve and the crew left and Liz came. I declared it a Roberts' Christmas. From overflowing stockings to onion dip, we attempted to do everything in Roberts tradition. Unfortunately, I do not have access to the pictures we took during that time. They are in the computer at home.

Currently, the girls and I are in Corpus with the Kemple family. We drove down and stopped in San Antonio for a nice 2 1/2 hour break. We had a great time with Lori and Spencer. Steve even got away from work to hang out with the girls and me. It really was so much fun to stop. And it was much needed, considering the length of the drive.

We finished off the drive by heading down to Corpus. When we arrived, the girls went nuts kissing and hugging everyone. It was cute to see how much they had missed Mama and Papa. Heidi, Anita, and Dan weren't home. They were out getting manicures and pedicures....must be nice. While we waited for them, we exchanged a few leftover gifts (some too large/costly to ship).

Yesterday was my parents' 37th anniversary. So we took them out for a yummy breakfast. It was great to sit around and talk during my family's favorite meal of the day. And since we overate, we were in desperate need of some exercise. Which meant that we needed to go we did! (It seems to just be getting easier and easier to come up with some excuse to go shopping.)

I love spending time with my sisters. It seems like it is so rare now that we are all living in different states. I think that that is one of my favorite things about the Holidays.

I hope that everyone had a Merry Christmas, filled with good food, friends, and most importantly, family. Have a wonderful New Year! Hopefully, I'll have Christmas pictures by then.

Don't you mean Heidi, Anita, and Jan weren't home?
