for so many reasons this holiday season, from thanksgiving to new years, was a shift for me. many things were different and i felt i was always driving somewhere. most of my family and Greg's live within 100 miles of each other so we can for holidays go to both. we have done this for the past 3 years so we have it pretty down. i can only imagine how much kids will love the car rides too.
for thanksgiving greg came home for 4 days (that's what i was thankful for) and we went to my grandmothers assisted living home to eat there with mom dad me greg and the jakeways (long time family friends of my grandparents). it easier for grandma since being mobile is harder. i was impressed with the food. from there we went to gregs aunt and uncle house in riverside which this time was only 15 miles from where we were. blessing!!
As the new year came greg and i drove up to laguna again to go to the Lakers game, our Christmas present from George, on new years eve. Lakers on obviously sine we were there. and after the game we came home to georgies for cocktails crab and movies! it was the best way to end the year. who knew we woudl be engaged the next day!
