I hope everyone had a Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year! We were out of town for most of the holidays. Jesse's mom picked us up at the Indianapolis airport and we drove to Cincinnati to spend a little time with extended family, which was lots of fun. On the way back to Indiana, we rode with Matt & Merida in their coupe. Merida drove, and I (really Nathan) got special shotgun treatment, leaving both 6'2"+ boys to squeeze into the back! (Matt looks a lot happier about this than Jesse does).
Back in Indiana, we spent a few days with Jesse's dad's side of the family.
Then we traveled to Connecticut on Christmas Eve to see my family for Christmas, where we opened a lot of presents,
decorated and ate cookies (the cookie we are eating here is one that Jesse made that said "J + K" -- awwww),
hiked in the woods behind my mom's house (and got ticks!),
put together a 1000 piece puzzle in one night (really difficult but I wouldn't let us go to bed until it was done!),
walked around Mystic Village,
and went to the casino where Chloe bested me at the arcade!
We hung out with some of Jesse's work friends for New Years, then came home and watched the ball drop via live streaming from New York (at 10pm our time) and then promptly went to bed (yes, that is how we roll)!
