This year will be really different for us. It's our first year as a married couple or a family that we have been in CO to celebrate the holidays. Other years we have split between Richard's 2 siblings (and families) in PA and my sister (and whatever other of my family can make it) in PA. This year we are spending both holidays in Grand Junction. We are so excited to be able to go to Richard's homeland for this joyous season. (But I am also sad to be missing the family out East. I always feel pulled in so many directions. B/c also, 2 of my siblings will be in Ecuador with my parents and we were supposed to go too :( )
Anyways back to the week's plans -
Tomorrow night after Richard's work we will head out for a 5 hour trip to Grand Junction! I love road trips and it's been a good 3 months since our last one, so it's about time. hahahaha (I'm not even joking or being sarcastic at all!). We will spend Thanksgiving with Richard's parents, grandparents, and a few Aunts and Uncles. (I'm hoping to have plenty of babysitters for my daytime/warmtime runs). Other years I have cooked the turkey and much of the dinner (which I LOVE doing) but this year will be nice to not worry about very much. :)
We plan to go to Glennwood Springs - which is a natural hot water springs town in the mountains!
Then meet up with the family again Sunday morning for church and after church drive back home!
I'm sure I will have plenty to write about after our trip - but until then
And Happy Anniversary to US! :)
