Christmas in Michigan

One of our sponsors blessed us with a trip home to Michigan for Christmas!

Despite a few travel delays, we made it home safely and had a fantastic 12 days with family and friends!

David’s family and my mom live a 45 minute drive apart. We feel very fortunate to be able to spend time with both families during breaks and holidays. My dad moved to Georgia a few years ago, but still visits Michigan every Christmas, and it was good to see him as well.

Christmas for us is getting to see David’s brothers’ recitals, concerts, and games:


Sam playing basketball


Hanging out with my mom, sister, and brothers, and having our usual Military Monday lunch at Applebees. We got to watch Skyfall with Mom and Matt. I was tickled to hear that people at Mom’s work said she reminded them of M. She does have an air of mystery and power about her, especially in uniform!


My sister Mary


My Mom


Seeing all of David’s mom’s side of the family at Wilcox Christmas. (Although, we missed David’s brother Joe and his wife Brittany! They are 8 months pregnant and couldn’t travel.):


Grandpa and Grandma Wilcox
