I was able to go home to Idaho for the holidays and spend time with family, friends, and supporters. I was SO TIRED after 3 weeks of rushing around trying to see everyone, but I was also so happy to be with loved ones. My closest friends are still in Idaho and I loved being next to people instead of just talking to them on the phone! If I didn't get to see you this time I am sorry - but the good news is that I will be home again next Christmas! Here are some picture highlights:
In the picture: Grandpa, Dad, Me, Aunt Sherry, Uncle Ray. I spent 4 days in Yuma, Arizona visiting my aunt and uncle. We went to a museum with antique farm equipment and restored cars. There was a lot of stuff there! As we walked around dad kept saying "Hey! We had one of these! I wonder where it is??" I guess "antique" farm equiment does not mean "retired" farm equipment. Some of the stuff we are still using!
So Matthew made a life-size poster of her and we carried her around with us for the holidays. We took her to church, the family Christmas party, the gym, out to lunch at Burgers, etc, to her old job, and anywhere else we went. We had everybody sign her and take a picture with her and then we mailed the poster and pictures to her in Florida (where she is doing really good at a Parelli horsemanship externship). So this family picture is going to go in a frame in my apartment as the 2010 family picture. :-)
