But we did have a good visit with Nate's family. The girls love seeing their Grandma, Nana, Uncle Bob, Aunt Jody, and cousins. And as always, it's nice to have the few extra hands for help for a few days. And they got TONS of gifts from them and us, as well as Santa of course. And we still have one more Christmas to go. We leave in less than a week for my sister's wedding. Can't believe my little sister is finally getting married. Now that it's right around the corner, I'm getting pretty excited for the trip. It amazes me though how many people ask me the question, "oh, you're going" like I wouldn't be going to my sister's wedding!!! Yes, people, I don't care if she was getting married in Alaska on the worst possible day of the year (not sure when exactly that would be) but she's my sister and just like every other significant life event that has occurred since I moved out here I will still be there. She fretted so much about when to have it between my schedule, hers, my dad's, and my mom's family. I pretty much told her it's your day, have it when and where you want, and we'll be there. That's just what family does. You don't always have to like it but you just do it because they're family and it's what you do. Had to get the short vent in there. Too many things have occurred lately in different ways where it amazes me how people don't make the time or the effort.
