So, I know I've been slacking on my updates, but its been a bit crazy.  We left a day or two after Thanksgiving from Oklahoma City to Travel to Austin.  That is where we have been ever since and hope to stay for awhile...So, I'll have some Austin updates soon.

In the mean time, we left Austin to Travel to WI for the holidays and just got back last night..Heres a recap...

Upon Arrival Adam met up with Brian to say hello.  He had a nice chat and we went over to Jaynes (Adams mom's).  Wrigley loved it, they have a cat and a hunting dog.  The cat kept batting the dog on the head.  They were nice little toys for each other.  We had a nice visit and got our hair cut (thanks Jayne!!)  We Watched the Packer game and Josh and Ambers in their awesome theater room. We went over to Jayne and Les' to watch Sex and the City and sleep :) From there we went over to my Grandmas and spent a couple days there.  She beat Adam and I in Sheepshead a few times over and I enjoyed tons of old time favorites, german potato salad, pizza burgers, scalloped potatoes and ham and wayyyyy tooo much more!

On Wednesday we went over to say hello to Jodi, Doug, Brooke, and Zack.  It was the first time I got to see Dirty Dancing, good recommendation Jodi!!!  We discussed possible dates for their visit and got to try some coffee Patron, with Brooke as our bartender.  The dog was slightly in love with Zack and Doug made us a great dinner!  We stayed the night there and the next day Adam when to spend time with Grandpa Wally and Grandma Laura.  They played card games all night and Josh and Amber come over to wrap up the night with a game of Sequence.

Christmas Eve came and we went over to Adam cousin Heather's house for lunch.  She has four cats and a beautiful house.  It was a nice lunch, much of Adam's family was there.  We had to cut it short, but dropped Marley off and then headed to Candlelight Church Service in Brillion.  From there we drove around and looked at some Christmas lights, stopped at my moms, and went back to Grandmas.  That evening some of my Aunts and Uncles and cousin's came over (Debi, Keith, Lauren, Evan, and Jon, Luke and Alex, and Derek and Jake)  Lauren and I ate our tradition string cheese and all the cousins played some pool and darts.

The next morning we headed over to Jayne and Les' for Christmas Morning.  Adam went to pick up his Grandma Carol.  Marley came over and Adams sister Annie and her husband Jason were there.  They had their boys, Brady and Jax.  Wrigley loved playing with Jax a little too much.  We ate a nice brunch and headed over to my moms for a couple hours.  There we played a new dice game called Zilch with my mom, bob, and Jake.  Adam got to try my mom's delicious carrot cake.  After games, Adam left to go to Josh and Ambers with his mom and Marley, and I stayed at my mom's where Derek schooled me in Ping Pong (I did win once tho!!!)  When I went back over to Grandmas at night I got to see Lori, Pat, Kristen, Tyler and Carley (my aunt/uncle/and cousins)

Sunday morning we relaxed a bit and then went and met up with one of Adam's friends for the Packer game.  My friend Jenna met me out and then we picked up Correne and went to dinner at Applebees.  Monday Adam spend doing a lot of work and Grandma and I went and played Bingo with my friend Laura and her mom.  None of us won :(  But Laura came close, she was one number short of winner 1,000.  Grandma and I spent a little time at the slots and Adam and I went jean shopping that night.  Cant beat 50% off jeans at Abercrombie and Hollister!

On Tuesday the 28th, Spent the day with Marley and I went Shopping and to get my dress fit with Laura.  Shes getting married on Aug 6th!!! Yay!  Then Adam and Marley meet Laura, I, and most of my family at Van Ables.  We all enjoyed lots of chicken, perch, and the fixings!!  Beyond Delicious!  Adam stopped at Jodi and Dougs for a bit to try and find dates for them to come to Austin!

The 29th we spent wrapping things up.  This was pretty much the last day we were home.  Adam went to lunch with his mom and Marley and they visited Grandma Carol and I went to my moms and seen my brothers and mom and bob.  She made us Mollassas cookies.  Then we had dinner with my grandma and I went to the comedy club with Jenni.  It was a pretty good show, and I was lucky they let me in because I forgot my wallet.  (thanks for covering me Jenni!!)

We left the next day and spent the night in St. Louis and drove back to Austin on New Years Eve.  All in all it was a great time at home seeing everyone.  Thanks for all the thoughtful gifts and a great time.  Now we get to start our goals.  We got a Lifetime Fitness membership (best gym ever) and we will be going organic grocery shopping today :)  So...lots of pictures for you!! And Ill update on some of Austin Soon!  Come visit whenever you want, it's pretty cool down here...
