This weekend Damarise and I flew back to Missouri to say goodbye to our family before they head to Zambia. Micah got to join us on our trip (so that'd we have a guy driving back with us) We had a blast with him and our family!
(Also, this is a post for pictures... another post will be coming soon :) )
We got to the airport a little early, so we had some fun exploring the airport.
We got to Missouri at 9pm. We had a delicious dinner and then went to bed. The next morning we went outside to enjoy the beautiful snow that Missouri had.
Even though half of us look miserable, it was a ton of fun!
We had snowball fights...
Hung out in forts...
And had a wonderful, cold time!
We also celebrated Damarise's 21st birthday :)
And Sarah drew Damarise this amazing panda! Yes, again, I've got to say that Sarah is an amazing artist! I am just astounded by her drawings!
Grandma also treated us to a birthday meal for Damarise. :)
Sunday we took family pictures... well... after the boys goofed off with the camera.
Trying to touch their tongue to their nose...
I love my family!
I don't even know what was going on.
This was our shocked expression.
The "look-at-Andrew-normal" expression.
Pants! Our family's sign.
They are the best!
"Attack the camera man!"
The homeschool family.
Homeschool choir ;)
Andrew traded places with Micah.
The weekend ended way to soon, and Monday morning we were on our way out.
This picture basically captures all the fun we had.
Mom and Dad left the mini-van to us, so Damarise and I now have transportation, which we are SO thankful for.
Goodbye until 2013.
On our way back to Covenant, we stopped to see the St. Louis Arch.
We had a wonderful trip back, and God gave us great weather for the trip!
I'm SO thankful for the weekend we got to spend with our family and Micah. God showed me once again what an amazing family I have and how blessed I am. I'm thankful for Micah too and his willingness to travel there and back with Damarise and me. I'm thankful for the church and the love they showed us and our family. And I'm thankful that one day our whole family will be reunited :)
