On New years day Luke, my mom and I headed out bright and early and set out to Clifton Illinois to visit my dads side of the family, about 4 1/2 hours away. My grandpa had surgery on his ankle on November and has not been able to walk since, he still has some time left to stay off of it, but seems like he is doing really well. So my Grandma had everyone in the family over at her house on the 1st to visit with us, it was so great to see everyone, meet two new babies I have not gotten to see yet (one is over a year old!) And see my cousin Leslie who I have not seen or got to spend time with in a while!
Even though we do not see them often it was great to spend time everyone, catch up, and learn some great tips from my Grandma, I swear my mom and I should of been taking notes she is the best ever!
I forgot my camera for the trip (I know I was sad) But it was very early in the morning so I am lucky I remembered everything else, But some of the cousins took pics for me so I will post some when they send them.
We have also had Luke's brother Ben staying with us for a little over a week now, it was fun having him here and spending time with him too, now he is back in sunny Vegas, lucky dog!
