I’m Back!

After 2 weeks soaking in the cooler weather and family time over the Christmas and New Years break on the east coast, I’M BACK!  And wow, do I have A LOT to share with you!  I have certainly missed all of YOU and can’t wait to fill you in on all of the details of our trip.  To spare you the boredom I will break it up into multiple posts ;-)

On the first day we were in Pittsburgh, we surprised our nephew with tickets to the Christmas Eve Steelers vs. Rams game.  We have been sitting on this surprise since June.  JUNE people!  It was so hard to keep that secret!  I had to catch myself several times from spilling the beans.  Both my nephew and mother-in-law are intense Steelers fans like us, so we bought them tickets to their first NFL game for Christmas.  We had such a fabulous time, despite the chilly weather.

Right after we told Micah where we were going.  Check out how big my upper-half is compared to my lower-half because of all my layers.

The Steelers beat the Rams 27-0.  Needless to say, it was a great game and I loved watching it with my hubby, mother-in-law, and nephew.

Sidebar- Yes, I do realize the untimely nature of this post.  Please be sensitive in your comments today, as we  are in morning of the ended season :-( waaaaaaaaaaa

How was your vacation? What were the highlights of your Christmas season?

I love it and I'm crazy jealous that you went! I feel your pain - my Cowboys and my Falcons are out and over and dunzo. But at least you're still in Houston so you can be there and enjoy the Texans and their postseason (HOLY CRAP - it's AMAZING and I'm really excited for them and the Texans fans and the city)!
