I guess my posts while in Chicago were exceptionally light, seeing that neglected to post anything at all. I had full intentions of doing so. Even considered scheduling out some posts and had been tagged for a couple of memes. But I kept running out of time: I had to work Wednesday night and Thursday morning, and we flew out Thursday afternoon. Our flight was a bit delayed, and by the time we got to my mom’s and fed the kids and got them ready for bed and stuff, we were exhausted, too. Lather, rinse and repeat for the entire weekend (well, except the working thing).
We spent so much time visiting with family and friends and had so much fun doing so, that I think I only checked my email for a few brief minutes all weekend. It was great! I hadn’t seen my eldest brother and nephew in 4-1/2 years (which meant neither of my children had seen them), and Gavin and my nephew got along great (which was good since we were all staying at my parents’ house).
On Saturday we had (if we counted correctly) about 45 people in my parents’ home. Justin’s parents and our youngest nephew came by for a couple hours, most of my aunts and uncles stopped by, a ton of cousins, and even my great aunt, one of my all-time most favorite people, came over a for a while. By the way, a quick warning to all my Kabelis relatives…Aunt Dee is gonna hit ya with a good guilt trip for not showing up. I would too, except I don’t have anywhere near as much clout as her.
Sunday was Meghan’s christening, where Justin and I became godparents again. It was a great honor to be chosen to act as additional guides for Meghan’s walk through life. I just wish we lived closer so that we could be more involved in hers, and her siblings’ lives.
I will be posting more pics that I steal from Justin in the next few days. I’m sure there are more of me looking like an idiot, so if that doesn’t keep you coming back, I’m not sure what will!
