We all woke up bright and early to prepare for Josh’s birthday brunch. He turned the big 30! Congratulations and Happy Birthday! While we were preparing for that we got a phone call from Johnny saying that he had been in an accident on his way home from Casey’s. My parents immediately jumped into the car and headed out on the 2 hour drive to go and get him.
We continued the day with lots of kitchen work-baking, cooking, etc and then proceeded to get ready for church. They got back while we were at the later service. Everyone made it home safely! We enjoyed a wonderful dinner and then the kids opened their one gift of new jammies before stories and heading off to bed. As soon as they were in bed we began our real work, wrapping, assembling presents, etc. It was a fun evening filled with family, tradition, and lots of laughs.
