Making Gingerbread Houses

It's always fun to do some craft projects while we're visiting with family. Theresa had the brilliant idea to make gingerbread houses.

University of Michigan Volleyball

Donald wanted to make sure we had plenty of things to do while we were visiting them in Michigan. The nieces are really starting to get into volleyball so they've gone to see the University of Michigan girls volleyball team play a few times, and they were eager to take us too.

Watching the Buffalo Bills play the New York Jets for free at Ford Field

Boy were we happy that we were going to Michigan for Thanksgiving and not some place that was snowed in like Buffalo New York.
The Buffalo Bills were scheduled to play the New York Jets at home but there was so much snow, work crews weren't able to clear it all off and keep it off for the game on Sunday. On Friday, it was announced that the game would instead move to Detroit Michigan at Ford Field, be played on Monday night, and tickets would be given away for free online starting at 10am Saturday morning.
Donald was right on top of it Saturday morning and good thing because within 10 minutes, all 67,000 tickets were gone.

Celebrating Thanksgiving in Michigan

Happy Thanksgiving! Theresa, Ian, Richard, Chi and I all flew up to Michigan to celebrate Thanksgiving with all the family up there. We did quite a few things while we were visiting, so this post will focus on most of the "hanging out" time and the next few posts will get into some of the fun things we did.

Happy Birthday Ian! Celebrating at Disneyland

Happy first birthday Ian! You're a whole year old today! Hard to imagine 1 year ago we were at the hospital and Ian was on his way.
What better way to spend his first birthday than at the Happiest Place on Earth! Disneyland!

Company D and Downtown Disney with the family

As a special treat, on Sunday we were able to take the family to Company D, a special overstock store usually reserved for only Cast Members. Twice a year employees can get passes for friends and family to visit and Ruston was nice enough to let us use his!

Ian's first birthday party - opening presents!

It's Ian's birthday! He's probably pointing at an airplane or something, but I like how it looks like he's pointing at his banner.
