On Christmas we celebrated with the family as Jews all over the country always do - with Chinese food and movie. Then the next day my brothers started arriving and then family from the rest of the state started pouring in to celebrate together the next day and it was a full house!
Over the next couple of days we helped my parents around the house a bit more, spent one more evening with my grandparents (after a lovely dinner out, the guys kicked the girls butts in a rousing game of spades), and took one last bike ride and then on Tuesday we headed back to the airport and were Houston bound. I'm glad we stayed those few extra days to relax a bit and spend some quality time with my parents and grandparents. But it was good to get home too. A certain puppy and 2 fuzzy kitties were all pretty psyched that we were home too.
