Back Home

Hello all! Yes, we did end up in  NY for Christmas! YAY! We left on Monday morning and made it up to Erie, PA then the snow got really bad. So bad that we almost turned back to go home. But we decided to push through after we called a couple of family members to get the weather report.  

We got about 2 or 3 miles from Erie, and the “check engine” light and a ” wrench” sign popped up on the truck dashboard. 😦 Our truck is a Ford and the only Ford place around was back in Erie.  We ended up spending the night in a hotel there. Turns out that a cap had popped off of the air filter and it was making the truck’s computer go crazy. So everything was basically a fluke. The man at the Ford place told my father that he would have felt completely comfortable driving it across the country.

God is good. After Dad came back with the truck, we once again set out for our destination, at which we arrived in a couple of hours later. I’m so glad we went, even after the hassle of getting there.  It was really nice to see our family. Christmas Eve and day went very well. I hope yours did too!

We stayed with Uncle Mike, Aunt Patty (one of my dad’s sisters), Rick and Joe. It was such a nice stay with them. Jeremiah had a blast playing with so many extra people and someone always seemed to be holding Matthew. John and I liked catching up with our cousins and talking about the best places for duck hunting and such 🙂 . I can’t wait to see what next year will be like.

Here are a few pictures from our week. I didn’t end up taking near as many as I would have liked. I think Dad took a few though and I will post those hopefully by tomorrow.
