I have been reflecting on that day all day today. I have been missing family terribly today. We went and had dinner with our friend's family. There was about 40-50 people there, and they were all so nice, and of course everyone loved Lucy. She is always the favorite everywhere we go. But they were all so happy, playing games together, sharing stories, and laughing. And here I was, so sad, trying to hold back my tears. All I could think of was my own family. Remembering what our Holiday was like. Dinner would be great, with Stove Top Stuffing, and Raspberry jello. After everyone stuffed themselves My Dad would lay in his chair snoring, and Doug would Lay and try to sleep with all the noise. Liz, Scott, Jonathan, and Shanna would play a game or something. Or Scott would be watching some educational show on the discovery channel. But I would deffinately not feel as alone as I did this day. I couldn't believe how much I missed you all. I am so grateful for such a wonderful Family. I have the best parents and the best sisters, and brothers. I love you, and I can't wait to come home.
