We are back in Lima with Chris’ dad and brother–made the trip yesterday from Freeport and the gathering of the “Brown” side of the family. It was wonderful! We had 16 there and that included everyone. We got a good family picture and that is important since it is so hard to get us all together in the same place anymore. With some of the family in Ohio, some in New Mexico and Arizona and Florida and New York and North Carolina it is getting more and more difficult to coordinate. We had a great time—had our big meal in the church basement across the street from the parsonage which worked out great so we could all be together and talk without sitting on each other’s laps!! All in all a great time and very calm!!! Even with a dog, a cat and a visiting kitten things were rather tranquil which seemed a little unusual!!!
Today we are headed to Ada to have lunch at Colleen and Bryan’s and that will be nice. Micah is chilling out in bed still so I guess i am going to have to get him motivated pretty soon. We still haven’t even given him his presents or his stocking so I think we are going to have to do that pretty soon or he will think we do not love him! It just has been kind of a weird Christmas—-Chris and I really did not do much for each other this year as this trip is kind of our present! And Aaron got his stuff early so it is a really sllllooooowwwwww Christmas this year I guess!
Well this is boring and I am needing to get some other emails written so will post more if something exciting happens!!!
