Tonight was a fun evening. I was glad to get out of the house, but the ride over to the family gathering was a rough one for me. Pretty much all of Shawn's family lives out in the country and when you have 24 staples in your belly, it can tend to be a rough ride on the country roads. Anyway, we got together with my husband's Dad's side of the family and we had a very enjoyable time. I was happy to be out of the house and even more thrilled to talk to other adults. We had a huge amount of food to eat.... everyone brought some tasty food and we had something of everything. We had the all famous Honey Baked Ham, homemade noodles, baked beans, macaroni & cheese, cheesy potatoes, mashed potatoes, salad, relish tray and a gazillion sweets. The food was delicious and I was thrilled that I was finally able to eat and enjoy it. My appetite kinda disappeared with my surgery so I was happy to have it back. It took me some time to get ready to go and I was exhausted before we even left for the party, but I enjoyed the time out of the house. Shawn took this picture of Cameron and I this evening and I thought I would post it since I look halfway decent since I have had my surgery. My hair is in desperate need of being cut, but hopefully I can get it all chopped off soon. Well, Shawn is off today and tomorrow so I am going to go and enjoy some more family time. Hope you all are enjoying your families during the Christmas season!!
