I'm finally updating the blog from Thanksgiving and Christmas! It has been a whirwind couple months.
For Thanksgiving, Bill, Ryan, and I loaded into the Hoppus van after school and drove the 14+ hours through the night down to Mississippi. Marti left the morning before we did, as Southwest Allen County did not have school that day.
It was a long, but smooth drive through the night and arrived Thanksgiving Day around 7am. I went up to Ross and my hotel room and took a much needed nap while Ross drive his dad and brother over to where they were staying.
We spent Thursday through Sunday (early morning) in Mississippi with Ross. It was a nice visit. Much colder than when I was there in October, but still a great time. We did manage to get to the beach for a walk Thansgiving afternoon. That was nice! Not a usualy Thanksgiving Day activity!
Below are some pictures from Thanksgiving weekend!

Five weeks after I was in Mississippi visiting Ross, he was able to come home for 12 days! I was a fantastic 12 days! Fenway was so excited to have him home! I'll try to post the video of Fenway's greeting later.
While Ross was here, we didn't spend a lot of time at home. There were so many people who wanted to see Ross and whom Ross wanted to see. We spent a lot of time with family and several days with friends. We took three days and went to the Detroit area to visit Ross's college friends. That was a lot of fun!
Ross gets to come back home at the end of February. Hopefully this tine we will be less busy!
More to come...
