Here's a brief recap of how Wes and I spent our holiday:
Dec. 23--met Wes in Petal. He came up from work in Louisiana and I came down from Oxford to do Christmas with his mom's side of the family-his sisters and their kids, his mom's brother and sister and their kids. They always have gumbo and Wes had the honor of making it. It was delicious and much need break from the normal holiday food I'm used to having.
Dec. 24--Christmas with Wes's dad's side of the family at his MaMaw's house. His MaMaw practically raised him (long story) so he's super close to her. It was a short but sweet lunch with his aunts, uncles, and cousins.
*I should probably insert here that I have a relatively SMALL family. I'm a only child and one of only 4 grandchildren on my mom's side and one of 5 on my dad's side. His family is HUGE! And they are all really close, so everyone comes. It was overwhelming to say the least and very different from what I am used to.*
After MaMaw's, we drove back up to Oxford to spend Christmas Eve night at our house. It was great to have it just be the two of us, because we don't get to see each other often and when we do, there are usually others around. We exchanged gifts with one another. I got an iPad!!! He got a grill along with a few other small things.
Dec. 25--My mom came over to our house and we exchanged gifts with her. She's a great gift-giver and always gets the perfect things.

Wes cooked us a great steak for lunch/supper on the grill. Then, we went to go see Meet the Fockers. So funny! It's a really cute movie. I had forgotten how long it had been since I'd been to a movie.
Wes is home from work until January 6!!! I am so excited to get to spend so much time with him.
My camera cord is still MIA. These pictures are from my phone. Once I locate my cord, I'll share my other goodies!
