The trip was worth it. My mom's side of the family has 89 members and I didn't even know a lot of them!! Although we didn't get to meet everyone that I didn't know, we did get to meet most of them. It's been around 8 years since I had been back to Ohio for Christmas! A lot had changed!Here's a pic of a few of us at dinner with a some of my cousins. My family was so happy to finally meet Dean! The boys hung out and played poker while the girls played with all the new babies!
I also got to see my best friend since 2nd grade, Kristen! Here is a pic of us with her son, Elijah.
It was a great trip but I'm glad to be home! I'm happy Dean had a good time...maybe I can talk him into going back... :)
