Thanksgiving in Ohio

We spent most of this Thanksgiving week in Brewster, Ohio with my parents, Henry and Jan Miller and my sisters: Marci, Missy, and Myranda and their families. We just had so much fun! Since we are leaving to go back to the mission field tomorrow, we went ahead and had Christmas with my family. Here's a few pictures to share with you.
Marci's and my kids eating at Steak and Shake on the way over from Indiana...what a ride! Our crazy husbands talked nonsense on the walkie talkies the whole 6 hours over and about drove Marci and me right out the passenger windows! We made it though.

Cameron enjoyed playing his guitar with Aunt Missy.

The kids wrapping presents with "Mamoo" - Jordan's name for my mom when he was learning to talk. It stuck - now 10 other grandchildren call her Mamoo.

Here we are getting ready to play a game.

The kids had so much fun in the snow.

Here I am pictured with my Aunt Liz Miller, my dad's sister.

The kids were singing Away in a Manger in front of my mom's beautiful fireplace. I can promise that Ryland was there just a second before - he must have just stepped behind Jordan whose face you cannot see. Yes, there are 9 grandsons and only 2 granddaughters!

All of us girls went together and bought my mom a countertop mixer this year.

We had so much fun together - great memories that we will always hold dear!

Marc and Anthony talking for 6 hours straight?? Say it ain't so. I'm sure the banter was side-splitting. LOL!!
Take care on your way back to Mexico. We'll be praying for a safe journey and I'm sure we'll be "talking" sometime tomorrow. :)

Like our wives would actually ALLOW us to talk 6hrs straight, but...if we would have been allowed, it would have been very deep and rich information!

We had a great time!!! Drive careful to Mexico!
