I flew in on my sister's 18th birthday and got to celebrate with her! It was supposed to be a surprise but my dad ruined that a long time ago. :P
Once Mitchell got in a few days later, we went to a party that my sweet friend, Hubs threw for us and got to see a lot of our friends that we have missed so dearly. I also got to go to dinner with my besties, Hubs and Meagan and Mitchell had breakfast and lunch with a lot of his old friends at Mustang, his previous employer.
We also celebrated my brother's 22nd birthday with a cookie cake decorated like a Pokeball, compliments of Liddy and 3 games of bowling! Mitchell bowled 4 strikes in a row! Do you know what that's called?! A 4 bagger!

That evening we drove to Longview to spend Christmas Day and the next week with Mitchell's family. We opened gifts with them on Christmas morning and then drove to Grand Prairie to spend Christmas time with their extended family. We had so much fun spending time with them and felt so welcome at Susie's house for 4 days!

On New Year's Day we flew back to Sacramento!
It was a whirlwind trip seeing so many friends and family members but we loved every minute of it!
