Family, Family, Family!!
Tonight we managed to spend time with both sides of the family. Mike picked up our 2 nephews and they came over to my parent's house for awhile. He had planned on the 3 of them going to a movie. I was planning on just staying here since I knew Shelia, Al, Jody, & Laura (aunt, aunt's boyfriend, uncle, and aunt) were going to be coming over for dinner and cards. This afternoon though Gavin (nephew) kept asking if I was going to go to the movie - I said no, but he kept asking - so I caved. Dad & Taylor volunteered to babysit Logan for us. So me, Mike, Gavin, & Austin (other nephew) went to Harry Potter & The Goblet of Fire. I was a little worried that it would scare Austin since he's only 5 - but he said it wasn't too bad. He just didn't like the bad guys!! hahaha We then met Mike's mom & brother Chris for dinner at Applebee's, from there we went to Best Buy to see if Mike would be able to convince his mom to buy us a camcorder. It didn't work - she wasn't "sold" on the $700 one he found, so I guess he's going to try again tomorrow - hopefully the outcome will be in our favor!
After finishing up at Best Buy we had to stop and pick up some Nyquil for myself. Of course it's the perfect time to start getting sick, I mean we only have a 1500 mile drive to look forward to!! Oh, and the passes have been closed because of the snow/rain they are receiving - so Mike will probably end up driving most of the way. After that we came back to Mom & Dad's where the cards were already beginning. We didn't do too bad tonight (granted, not as good as Mike made out on Christmas), we made about $2.50 more than what we started with!! And hey, you can't find much that gives you 3 hours worth of entertainment for only $2.50!!
