Matt and I started our journey on the 23rd. We dropped Wally off at the pet resort (which he loves) and then headed Grandpa Bill and Nanny's house in Verona, Kentucky which is about 25 miles outside of Cincinnati. It took forever to get there. :-) Once we got there, we visited some before heading to bed. Then on the 24th, we got to enjoy our time visiting, eating a delicious lunch, and of course opening some gifts.
Matt and I got back on the road early early early on the 26th to come back to Richmond so we could do Christmas with the Wheawill family. We were greeted by Wally when we got home. Matt's family went and picked him up for us and I was definitely so happy to see him. 3 days is long enough to be away from him! Wally was happy to see us but was exhasted from running around and playing with all the other dogs.
So, we took quick showers and baths (Wally included) so that we could head on over to Mom and Pops Wheawill. Matt's sister, Courtney, greeted us wearing a UT sweatshirt. As with my uncle, I try not to hold it against her that she went to grad school at UT.
We got to do all the traditional stockings, snacks (yummy!), gift exchange, and a very nice Christmas dinner.
Wally was not left out and he really loves all his presents!
After heading to church and to lunch with the family, Matt and I tried to work on laundry and putting things away. We took time out to play with our new Christmas toys and presents though! We'll have a fast busy week at work so that way we can play again next weekend with friends. Hope everyone else had a nice Christmas!
