Saturday night before Christmas we headed over to Riverton, IL where George's sister lives. She had made a feast fit for a king for Christmas dinner. It was delicious!! Afterwards we all sat around watching made for tv movies, visiting, and then exchanged gifts. We had a great time laughing and spending time with everyone. We hadn't seen George's family since Thanksgiving, so we were both very thankful to be able to see them again for a few days. As usual the trip was short because we had to continue on to my family.
George's dad, Tom, opening gifts. If I remember right...this was a box full of nuts. Now I know why George likes nuts so much!
Joann, George's sister, has recently made many upgrades on her home. She has done a lot of the work herself, while George and Tom have helped out as well. Now that she finally has a non ply-wood floor, her walls look pretty bare. We bought her a wall hanging. George even picked it out.
Gloria, George's mom, is unwrapping her annual Schnauzer calendar. George and his siblings have been replaced with two furry children, which I will feature in a future post. As always, we had a wonderful time. It was difficult to leave knowing it would be the wedding before we would see them again, but that is just 61 days away now!
