I'll start the Christmas recap with December 20th and 21st.
The morning started with two tall raspberry mochas. (Yes, TWO. Mike had his first coffee-based drink. Never would have expected this.)
And we hit the road, bound for Ohio.
Mike was driving. A good thing, because I am convinced that he takes a new route every time. I don't think I could tell you how to get to my in-laws' house, and we've been married for 4 1/2 years!
Mike drives. I take pictures. That's the deal.
At this point, we detoured through Huntington. I played with camera settings. I like this one.
Then we entered Ohio to meet my brother-in-law for lunch.
While we were in the restaurant, Mike asked me what was wrong with my lips. I had no idea what he was talking about, and assumed they might have been a little chapped. Turns out, I was having an allergic reaction to my lip gloss. I've been using it for months...not sure what happened. Thank goodness it went away quickly. I did not have clown lips for the entire weekend.
Saw this on the way and thankfully got my camera out in time.
So we made it to the in-laws'. Hung out, had some KFC for dinner. No photos to share of that.
Then it was gift time. My brother-in-law was in charge of handing out gifts.
He takes his job seriously. :)
Mike and his sister.
Now just his sister. :)
My mother-in-law. I feel very lucky to have a mother-in-law that I get along with.
This is what my father-in-law does. He's like me, but with videotapes instead of memory cards. :)
And the Bess family photo. I had already changed into my PJs at this point, so I decided against setting up the tripod so I could be included. Oh, and can you tell that my brother-in-law is a ham? :)
We drove back on Sunday, after going to the most awesome antique store ever. That's where I got that cute red flower pin from a few posts back.
Next up, Monday and Tuesday. Otherwise known as "those not so great two days where I had to work and Mike did not".
