Family Christmas Party

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!!

I'm so glad you got to get out among adults (& kids!) for the evening and that you had a good time. Did you take a pillow for in the car? I always had one pressed against my stomach for my coughing and any jolts.

It is good to know that you were able to go enjoy yourself with the family and have a good time. Thank goodness you had your appetite back with all of that yummy food. Just keep putting one foot in front of the other, and before you know it you will be back to yourself again. Enjoy all of the time that you are going to have with Shawn this week, I know that you are looking forward to it. Maybe sometime in the near future you and Shawn can sneak away for an evening of your own. I know that your in-laws love to take care of Cameron, but you have a cousin that would LOVE keeping him and entertaining him while you two had a date night! You always look beautiful and this picture is so cute, I just love the smiles that the both of you have. You can't help but smile yourself when you look at those two cute faces! :) Lots of smiles and hugs this week! Talk soon. :)
