I’ll Be Home for Christmas…..

Are you ready for a picture overload???? GOOD! HA, So……..our trip got off to a rocky start….. we showed up at like 6:30am to the airport on Saturday the 21st to find out due to the Oklahoma ice storm our flight had been cancelled and all others were booked! So after a stressful hour at the SW desk we were able to get booked on a flight that put us in Oklahoma on Sunday afternoon!

 Look at this welcome…….my parents live close to the airport so they came to pick us up……with a sign and everything! We loved it!

 You know, sometimes you don’t even realize how much you need a hug from your Mom and Dad until you get them. And I know the same goes for Matt with his family as well as mine!

 We were so lucky to get to Oklahoma in time to go to a Thunder game!!! Gosh I missed this experience! It was so much fun……. Thunder Up!!!!!

 Monday we got to spend the day with my brother and sister-in-law, it had been a year since we had seen them! I mean…….too long! We did what we did best…..shopped, ate and saw a movie! You like the ice tree?

 Matt and I were lucky enough to get to have brunch with these girlies…….the Kingry Girls! The girls fought over Matt…..he is a bonafide chick magnet! I had missed Melissa very much and when we were at brunch it didn’t seem like anytime had passed! That is the true test of a best friend!

 Oh you know……. a token couple picture from Matt and I! Do you love his shirt as much as I do??? Matt got it for Christmas from his parents and we love it!!!

 Oh my dear Becky!!! I had missed her so much so getting to spend some time with her was so good for my soul. I laughed, we chatted, we ate, we shopped and I felt like the “Old Nicole” when I was with her.  Thank you Becky for that! PS- Happy Belated BIRTHDAY!!!!!

 Oh you know……just me and my “Becky’s”……BK took time off of work on 1 nights notice to meet us for lunch…I am so lucky to have her in my life! Is it me or do the Becky’s look alike in this picture?

 One of my favorite things we did all week was Christmas Eve service at Life Church with both of our families! They decorate the building so beautiful we all took time to take some family photos! And really could Marissa be any prettier?? I want her style when I grow up! hehe

How handsome are the Savage boys? I love how Matt lights up when he is with them! And thanks to Landon Matt and I are HOOKED on the Homeland series DVD’s we got from him! We are almost thru Season 1 already!

 Merry Christmas from the DuBois clan (minus a few)……..

 Merry Christmas from the Savages!! And yup, my Mother-in-law and I think alike hence our snazzy matching duds! I love them! After the service we celebrated our Christmas followed by a game night! We had a blast!

 This was Christmas Eve service…..the message Craig gave was wonderful, my parents left saying it was the best message they have heard in awhile!

 Here are my people……….Celebrating Christmas Day together and getting to spend time with my cousin Brittany as well as my brother and sister-in-law! It was so nice to be together! Cheers to being home!

 I love this picture and I LOVE my Oma and Granddad! I had missed them so so so much, when you go from seeing someone bi-weekly to a year passing it is just unacceptable!

And lastly my Mom…….. Words cannot express how much I love her. Knowing someone loves you and knowing they know you best is…….well, the best!
