A Very Merry Christmas...

Well, this was a very Merry Christmas, but it was a busy one!

We got into Midland on the 18th of December, and right away I went out with my Father, a.k.a. "Pop-sicle." We went to the Dow Garden's Christmas walk. It's basically a candle lit walk though beautiful snow covered gardens with Christmas lights. I love it. After the walk we went to Pizza Hut. We always share a veggie pizza, it was yummy!

On the 19th we had a pretty low-key day with church, and going out to lunch with Justin's parents.

The 20th we basically stayed around the Biddle's house because my Mum had the 48 hour flu.

The 21st was fun. The day started out with Justin taking me to Omelets and More for breakfast. That is where he took me December 21, 2007 before he proposed on the Tridge. It was really sweet and romantic. After that my Mum and I had a day of hanging out and shopping. That evening Justin and his family and I went to Frankenmuth. We went to Zehnder's Chicken Restaurant and then had a beautiful snowy carriage ride.

The 22nd Justin and I hung out with a couple of old friends of ours, Marc and Beth. We had lunch with them. After I went to a movie with my Mum, "Tangled," and did a little more hanging out with her. It was nice to have some extra time with her. Justin hung out with a friend from college.

The 23, Christmas Eve Eve, Justin, my Mum, and I went to Frankenmuth for a little last minute Christmas shopping. We also ate at the Brewery there... they have the BEST soft pretzels! Later that night, my friend Tori came over to my Mum's and we ate pizza and played a game. It was wonderful to see her!

Christmas Eve, at 1pm, Justin and I went to my Pop-sicles new home and had Christmas with him and Leslie and the family. It was nice. Then we had Christmas Eve dinner with Justin's family, went to the Christian Celebration Center Christmas Eve service. That evening we opened gifts with the Biddle's.

Christmas Day. We spent the night at my Mum's house so we could wake up Christmas morning there. So we opened presents at like 7:30 am at her house, we visited the Biddles for a little while, and then headed over to my maternal grandparents house for yet another Christmas celebration. Then we went back over to Justin's parents home and packed up. Now I'm writing my blog post!
Christmas morning... a classic Winnie the Pooh for me! :D

It has been a crazy vacation, but a fun one. It is such a blessing to be able to spend holidays with family and friends that we cherish. Thank you to everyone that made this Christmas such a special one!

Merry CHRISTmas, and love to you all!
