Our Christmas

We had a nice extended Christmas with my family. The one thing that was a bummer was that something went wrong with the transmission in our car when we were about halfway to my parents' on Christmas Eve. We pulled over on the freeway and Hubby was checking fluids, etc. (after dark, in torrential rain), and a policeman pulled up behind us and called a tow truck for us. The ride in the tow truck cab was cozy with the driver on the left, Baby Boy in his carseat (partially covering the poor driver's gearshift) in the middle, and me sitting on Hubby's lap on the right. Fortunately, we only had to go a few miles that way. Our car is still at the shop and will be for a few more days, so my mom was our transportation the rest of the way to my parents' house and back to our house again.

On Christmas, we went to my Grandma's house, and the day after Christmas we got together with my other grandparents at a restuarant. I also met with two of my lifelong friends (one of them just got engaged this Christmas!).

Hubby was very busy in the days after Christmas doing some audio equipment installation at a church in my parents' area, and the project ended up taking longer than anticipated, so we stayed with my parents for a few extra days. They didn't mind having a few more days with their grandson (Baby Boy is their first grandchild).
