A couple of weekends ago, Melissa and Tristan came down from Austin for a visit! We didn’t get to be with them during Christmas (they spent their’s in Germany!!), so we planned to make up for lost time!
They arrived late Saturday evening and we met up with them at Camille’s! We enjoyed delicious hand-dipped ice cream bars and homemade lemonade…it was so much fun to have the fam together again, at last!
Melissa, Tristan, John, and Paula were all able to be with us at City Church on Sunday, which was so cool for us because we love our church family so much!! After church, we headed over to the Kline’s for some “bring your own lunch” and a little more “What’s your’s like?”…have I mentioned we love that game? We had such an awesome time with Katie, Doug, Avery, Geoff, Jared, and Meredith!!!
In the evening, we drove out to Pom Pom & Grandma’s (Paula’s parents) for a little belated Christmas time…we spent the evening eating, playing games, taking down the tree along with all the other Christmas decor, and watching John Ryan and Tristan do things that were easier for them to do in high-school…(oh, those glory days…) Also, John and Paula surprised us with stockings stuffed with awesomeness!!
We spent the night there and enjoyed a long, amazing pancake breakfast on Monday morning (so thankful for holidays!…and for John’s pancake making talent!) I was asked to put my haircutting skills to good use and managed to give 4 man cuts in one morning!! …probably a new record for me…(Thanks, Tristan, for helping with JR’s)!!
John Ryan & I played “Settlers” with Mel & T all afternoon until, alas, it was time for them to get on the road back to their homeland. It truly was a sad departure! We love every chance we get to spend with them!
