Chris and I spent Christmas and New Year’s in Michigan and we had a great trip. We lucked out with the weather, it didn’t snow and some days the temps were in the 40s. Chris’ parents picked us up at the airport on Christmas Eve and we stopped at BW3’s so we could watch the start of the Detroit Lions Game. Chris is a huge fan and is so excited that they get to go to the playoffs this year, it’s hard to believe that they are a decent team this season, the last time they made it to the playoffs was 1999, my freshman year of college.
After dinner we drove to my parents where we all went to Christmas Eve service together. Afterwards my mom hosted the annual Christmas Eve party which was fun. On Christmas Day we woke up at Chris’ parents house and had a lazy morning. We opened presents in the afternoon and then started to prepare dinner. My parents were able to join us too so that was fun. We munched on Jessi’s Dip and Homemade Pretzels for appetizers and then my mother and father in law cooked steaks and fish on the grill. They recently remodeled their house and it looks great, this dining room used to be a family room that they never used, I talked them into repurposing it as a dining room and then create a little den where the old dining room used to be.
The next day we headed to my parents to celebrate Christmas with my sister and her family. It was fun to see how excited the girls were about Christmas and to hear all about what Santa brought them. We enjoyed appetizers early in the afternoon and opened presents and then had prime rib for dinner.
