Over the River and Through the Woods...

...Well, it may not have been exactly like that. I should have said "Over the pot holes, and down 127, to Grandmothers house we go!" :)
After our time in Howell with my folks, we travelled to Ohio and spent some time with Josh's other sister Sarah, as well as her hubby Steve, and Livvie, Simeon, and Sophie at Grandma and Grandpa's house. That would be Josh's parents if you are not following. :)
They just moved into their new home a couple weeks ago, and we "broke it in" so to speak. We had a really wonderful time with Grammy and Grampy, and the Curry clan. Boy did we miss Ben and Emily and the Snyders though!
On Saturday, we made it to cousin Ron and Jeanne's house for a Mathew family get together. It was so good to see everyone, and have a great time visiting. A lot of these family members we had not seen since Ben and Emily's wedding a year and a half ago, and some even longer!
Me being the genius I am, actually didn't get any pictures while we were there. I did bring our camera, but completely forgot to use it! Josh assures me that is a Mathew trait. :)
We did get a couple of pictures with Grandpa Hertel. :) We were so glad to be able to visit with him while we were down there.
All in all, it was a wonderful weekend. We got home on Saturday evening, and got to go to church this morning. After naps we decorated our tree! Those pics will be coming soon. No students wrapped in Christmas lights singing "Jingle Bells" this year though. :)
Josh and the girls with Grandpa Hertel. :)

Josie and Grandpa making corn bread. Gluten free, of course. :)

Grandma reading one of a gazillion stories that she read that weekend.

Uncle Josh teaching Livvie how to whistle different notes. There was a whole lot of whistling going on that weekend!

It looks like you and your family had a wonderful Thanksgiving...and you even got a nap?! Nice job!

Can't wait to see the tree pictures.

We'll be getting our tree this week and decorating this weekend when Miya gets here! Yay!

Thanks for posting the pics. I didn't get many that have been shared at this point. :-) I'll get to it though!
Olivia has assured me that if I just play our piano like Uncle Josh did - she'd be able to whistle songs better!
