Christmas 2016

Christmas was very special this year! Like it is every year. We went to Pasco to go to Summer's family. It was awesome because everybody was there. I was excited because they let us out of work early on Thursday, and Friday was PTO for Christmas Eve. (Since the 24th was on a Saturday). We tried to pack light, because we had a guitar and our puppy to bring to Washington. We had to get an emotional support dog note from my Surgeon, details on what it must contain. He's trained and does really well with people, and doesn't have many accidents, but sometimes he gets a little nervous in huge crowds (like busy airports) and when he's got to poop, he'll poop in public places. We made sure to give him a long walk beforehand and give him an all-natural calming agent. He did fantastic, and he put a smile on everyone's' face. We started farting near the end of plane ride, so we carried until we got out of the plane ride that he didn't poop in the airport. Which he immediately did after we set him on the grass outside.

We had a great time. The food was fantastic, we had pulled-pork tacos Christmas Eve, and traditional food Christmas Day such as ham, mashed potatoes, green beans, etc... We were excited to give Spencer an acoustic guitar, because he used to play all the time, but he had to sell his gear, and hasn't owned a guitar in a while. I tried many guitars before selecting a Mitchell. Under the tree, we put a box full of guitar accessories such as a strap, capo, picks, etc... When he opened it, we were going to go grab a guitar that we had in our room. Summer full down the stairs and sprained her wrist while retrieving the guitar. So we had to go the hospital and get an x-ray.

We went to Yakima to visit Summer's Grandpa and visit friends. I rented a car for my first time. We got a Toyota Camry, which was a really smooth enjoyable ride! I will say that the features were more sleek than our Subaru Impreza. But, it's only a two wheel drive.

It's always sad to get everyone together for such a short time and then have to say goodbye immediately after.

We plan on getting together next Thanksgiving!
