After we packed up the car, Jack decided to run away from Jeff's Parents. We looked for him but then decided he would show up after he was done fishing in the lake. Jeff's family was so nice to offer to keep looking for him and bathe him when he decided to come home and watch him for the rest of the weekend so we could make it to my parents for Christmas Dinner.  (this is not a first for jack, we miss him but i bet he misses us just as much).

My parents tree- they always put cards on it- Do any of you have that tradition as well?

A cranberry meringue tart, a seven layer bar, a piece of peanut butter fudge

Oh it was a fun-filled, gift-filled, event-filled Christmas Day! We had a lovely evening by the fire chatting but we were so exhausted that we fell asleep fairly early.

Body: Much needed rest day

Mind: drove to the parents, searched for jack..

Soul: we miss jack, but luckily halfway through our drive Jeff's sister called and Jack was sitting on their doorstep covered in fish smell. Yuck!
CHRISTMAS PRESENTS!!!!!!!!!!
PARENTS!! FAMILY!!

Jeff surprised me with a gift... I can't say now because if sister reads, she will know. It was SOOOOOO SWEET! No worries, it will be on here. Jeff is the best.
