It has been a tradition in Grant’s family to set up the Christmas tree together on Thanksgiving or the day after. I meant to start on Thanksgiving,but I think it really happened the day after. Grant and Gail were happy to let me work and I was happy to do it.
This year we were very excited for Thanksgiving to come. Gail, Grant’s mom, was coming into town to spend Thanksgiving with us. This was my first time hosting, and I can’t lie and say I wasn’t nervose about all that it could entail. When you marry into a family there are always core differences, but differences aren’t always a bad thing! It is so much fun so always learn about how Grant grew up and what the similar and what was different.
During the first weekend in December, Grant and I went to Dime Box to my parents property. My sister Kira was visiting from Nashville and so everyone who was close by and had the time came to dime box to hang out. Kira and Andrew couldn’t come for Thanksgiving this year or Christmas, so it was nice to see Kira again; Andrew was on a business trip. It was a pretty chill time,but the girls always make it fun.
Daniel and Sarina came into town for a weekend in the end of October to deliver a new washer and dryer to Tanya and Wilson. Since this was a good excuse to get together we all spent a saturday together. The men worked on moving old and new washers and dryers while the women talked, cooked, and entertained the kids.
