Merry Christmas

Merry Christmas everyone! I thought about sending out cute little Christmas cards like my sisters did, but 1. Gabe and I are so good looking we didn't want other people to be jealous (I'm kidding..kind of :)) 2. I was to lazy and never did anything in time. So the 2nd one is more accurate. But we do want to say Merry Christmas or Happy Holidays to everyone. We drove to Dallas last night and then the rest of the way to my in-laws today. Normally it is an okay drive to Gabe's sisters in Dallas it's just five hours. It took us over 6. Right as we were leaving Gabe said he wasn't feeling well. Of course in my wisdom I said lets go home and drive it all the next day. Of course men don't listen and he said he was fine. Just when we were far enough away that turning back didn't make since, we had to pull the car over so Gabe could throw up on the side of the highway. Let me premise with the fact that I had been sick all week so I wasn't feeling up to driving, and driving at night on highways is a fear on mine. So with a sick husband I had to suck up my pounding head and fears and drive the rest of the way stopping at various restaurants and pull offs for Gabe. We finally made it and both had a horrible nights rest keeping each other up with our different aliments. But we made it to Tyler today and we are both feeling better. It is great to be with family. I will miss being with my parents and siblings this year, but it is always a wonderful time here with the Eyerlys. I am lucking to have 2 wonderful families. I'm sure this week will be filled with a lot of fun, food, and video games (for the boys).
I hope everyone gets to all their destinations this Christmas safely! Yay for Christmas and Yay for the True reason we celebrate Christmas; Christ. I am so grateful for the blessings in my life that come from the Savior.
