Friday after work (about 8) Ryan and Robbie and I left on our journey home to Michigan. We got about 50 miles east of Knoxville, TN, and stopped at a Motel 6 for the night. Saturday, after breakfast at Shoney’s, we headed off to Michigan, and arrived at my brother Richard’s about 8 or 8:30 in the evening. We were a day early but I wanted to surprise him. We did have to wait outside for a bit as he was wrapping presents and stuff and we couldn’t go in. We spent the evening visiting and working on getting stuff ready for Christmas. Sunday morning we all went to Church and everyone enjoyed seeing Robbie (and us, too). The afternoon was spent stitching and wrapping presents and more visiting and then we went to Steak ‘N Shake for dinner. I had a really yummy egg nog shake with my meal! Monday morning we got up and got the van packed up and left for Mom & Dad’s – stopped at the post office to mail some stuff, at a bank, at Rick’s church, and at his work (his coworkers wanted to see Robbie), and then finally headed out of town. We finally got HOME about 9 or 9:30 after lots of bad, snowy roads, and even a closed road. We ended up having to take a different route part of the way home because our normal road was closed. I drove most of the way, but I don’t mind driving in the snow as long as I can see the road a little bit.
Since we’ve got here, we’ve had sauna (YAY!!!!) and Mom and I went shopping Wednesday evening after she got done with work. That was fun, and of course Robbie was with us. I’ve gotten a lot of stitching done, and have most of my Christmas presents wrapped. Robbie is enjoying the time with Gramma and Grampa and Uncle Rick, and they likewise!
Diana and I are planning on being in Marquette on Thursday 12/30/04 and are wondering hoe long you’ll be in Gwinn. We’d love to stop by and say hello to you, Ryan and the little guy Robbie. Our e-mail is email@example.com, hopefully we’ll make a connection. Hope to hear from you…..
