What a fun filled 3 months!
First, Adam and I enjoyed having his family come for Thanksgiving! It was fun being able to show them around the city. Adam and Mark went to a basketball game at the new Barkley stadium (go BYU! :D) while Susan, Annie and I went to go see Wicked. It was AMAZING! We also went to see the movie Lincoln.. Truth be told, I fell asleep haha, but what I did see was good. Watching a movie in a dark theater after a long day of work is a recipe for sleep. Then we ate a delicious thanksgiving feast, which Susan helped me prepare. She taught me how to make the best gravy ;). Overall, our time together was great.
Our second fun adventure consisted of Adam and I surprising my family for Christmas;). It was fun being able to play with the little kiddos and being able to perform our christmas program at the care center . All of the elderly folks there were adorable! I even got a kiss on the cheek by the sweetest old man. :) Christmas Eve was the best one I have ever had! the little nieces and nephews make it the best!. Just watching their eyes dance with excitement, and seeing them rip open their presents was too much fun. Surprising my mom, dad, and siblings will forever be one of the best memories I've ever had.
Our third exciting event was having Allie and her friend Hannah come stay with us. We took them to China town to get dumplings, and we took them to little Italy to get New York's number one best canolies;). After that we took them to the Two Towers memorial site and looked at the reflection pools. It was beautiful. Then, we went to the Metropolitan art museum;). It too was beautiful! After that, we went to Shake Shack. You can't come to New York and not go there. It's the best! Haha needless to say, having them come visit us was SO MUCH FUN!
Adam and I are so grateful for the most wonderful family and friends! We truly are blessed to have them in our lives! Love you guys<3
