It was great being able to spend Christmas with the family before i left for New Zealand. This was the first Christmas with Brenton as a brother-in-law, this will be the last Christmas before Jennifer will have a child running around, and it was just good to spend time with my parents. Everyone came in Christmas day and we all leave on the 28th to go elsewhere.
I had to wake up at 5:30am Christmas day to pick Jen and Brandon up at the Chicago airport. I told my parents the only way i would do was if they would by me a Santa suit. so they did! Santa suit, sign and all i greeted them with a "ho ho, merry Christmas!" Everyone was staring... i don't know why!?!
We got to spend a lot of time together. The boys played basketball, the kids played Dr. Mario, we went and say Rocky Balboa(it was good),and we played Balderdash and boggle at night. It was a fun few days
Here is the crew: Brenton & Kelly Benware, Brandon & Jen Bruce, and ME!!!
