Tidbits from the weekend away

We left Friday morning around 5:30 to begin our drive to the otherside of Oklahoma. The drive was soooo slow as the roads were awful. We made it.

We met up at my aunt's house, my parents were there as well as another aunt.

A few observations:

One aunt had all the presents wrapped so pretty. As they were handed out you were told exactly how much she spent not only on the gift, but also how much the bow and bag cost. After you opened the present she immediately requested the gift bag and bows back telling us that we could not keep those. Quite humorous

Also decided my 7 year old son is more mature than my 18 year old cousin. He got mad and sulked if he didn't get to play a game he wanted. I also noticed him and Brae have the same movie posters displayed in their rooms. Needless to say he drove me crazy most of the time.

All in all it was a nice visit. My cousin was in from Alaska and her tales have made me want to visit. Glad to be home with lots of laundry to get caught up this week.

lol your aunt wanted the wrapping and bows back that reminds me of my great grandma, we would unwrap stuff and she would say be careful not to rip the paper I want it back for next year. lmao

lol, your auntie story made me giggle. I was never a 'bow and wrapper/bag saver'.
