Well, we made it safely home, and managed to keep our sanity!! We got back home on Christmas night at about 11:30 (poor Brody had to work the next day). The flight went just fine, we were delayed only 35 min leaving LAX. However, I was extremely sad leaving my nieces. It was sad leaving my brothers also, but we get to talk on the phone as much as we want. The girls, especially Audrey and Madelyn, don't really like to talk on the phone. The remember people by seeing them. Although, Audrey seemed to remember me...yeah!!! Anyhow, there were about 22 people at my brother and sister-in-law's. It was quiete chaotic, but turned out alright. Even with all of the people there, Trevor and Linds (who were not able to go) were missed, especially the girls missed not being able to see their cousins. No big family brawls or anything that exciting to gossip about suprisingly enough. We had a few nights that we played games, battle of the sexes (of course us girls won...the boys swear the game is "rigged") and cranium (Brody had to act out Martha Stewart...it was great). I had a blast...and Brody (Mr. Shy personality) did so well...I was very happy. The girls of course LOVED their uncle Brody...and he was whipped- you see it in his eyes in a lot of the pics. Speaking of which...I will post them as soon as I get a chance..hopefully in the next couple of days. So overall, Christmas was a success. It has been a very long time since that many of us has been together at once without somebody getting married or dying. (how sad..we'll have to work on that) I hope you all had a very merry christmas, and have a safe and happy new year this Sunday. If I didn't get to talk to you on Christmas...I'm sorry, traveling on a holiday is a little hectic. Feel free to call me anytime. So, to sum it up, Christmas was very good for Brody and I this year, many blessings to be thankful for, mostly the chance to be able to spend it with our family.
