I am going to try to catch this blog up! We were in Charlotte for two weeks! For Christmas and New Year.
Soon after we got to Charlotte, we got news from Eric that he only got 4 days leave for Christmas...
Kailey had already packed their house for their move to Camp Lejeune, so my dad and Garet loaded their stuff and drove the Uhaul to their new place.
I was sooo excited to see Eric! I am so proud of him, and can already see a huge difference! It was so wonderful to finally introduce Colin to his uncle!
We went to a Christmas Eve service (which Colin made himself known. Lets just say he was testing his vocal cords). Christmas morning was the best! The whole family was there! Including all four dogs! (Suzi, my parents dog, Rusty, and Eric and Kailey's dogs, Macy and Biscuit) My uncle and Patsy came by too!
Christmas day the family came over to my parents house. It is always so nice to see everyone! I am glad most of my family still lives close by so they can still get together easily! That afternoon it started snowing! By the next morning it was completely white!
That evening Garet, mom and I started a game, and the power went off! It stayed off until we started eating dinner! That was interesting! We had all the candles lit!
And Colin enjoyed hanging out with his Papaw...
Garet was able to meet a couple of his friends in Boone to go skiing - and I was able to catch up with a few of my friends!
