Our trip home for the Holidays!
Most of you know that we went home to California for a much-needed trip away from the base, and visit with our family and friends. We just returned home on Friday, although getting to the airport and on our plane was a story in and of itself. We had a great time up in Tahoe as a family for a few days, and then returned back to Modesto for Xmas Eve with the Wilkins side, and then on to San Ramon/Castro Valley with my side of the family. We got a chance to check out our friends bar in S.F. called 83 Proof (1st and Mission if you get a chance), I met my new baby sister, and even ate at our favorite Taqueria a few times. Justin and I were able to sneak away for New Years as my Mom so graciously watched Paige for us. We left her for 4 days, the longest I have ever been away from her. That was hard, but it was good for us as a couple...and my Mom was having a blast. It was a good trip. It is nice to be back home, but it is super snowy and cold. Justin leaves to Alaska for Arctic training on Sunday, and that should be interesting. We will be praying for him to return home safely with all his fingers and toes!
