Spoiled With Love

On Christmas Eve, Gramma and Bopa flew in for a 10 day visit.  Since Rowan, Merrick, and Kierce were also out of school during their visit we got to have TONS of family together time.  We sure made the best of it, squeezing in every opportunity to be together.  The rents stayed at our place most of the time, so we we got spoiled with homemade breakfast from Mom on most mornings.  Eva's favorite?  Chocolate chip pancake morning, of course!  She even helped Gramma make them :)

Another morning, we got up and ready super quick and made it down to the bay for the Big Bay Balloon parade.  They had Macy parade sized balloons and lots of marching bands, it was fun to see...

One night, Mom made her infamous eggrolls that everyone helped roll (well, everyone except me)...

while she fried...

We then turned the night into a game of Mexican Train...

On Sunday, we met up for Brunch at one of Dana and my favorite places, 94th Aero Squadron, for delicious food and mimosas.  (Yup, thats me there in the middle, Super Mom!)..

On New Year's Day, we hosted a Michigan football party at our house...

But the funnest part of the day?  The family Bronco ride around the block...

Wednesday was our final night together, sending Mom and Dad off with lots of love and great time spent together.  We squeezed in some extra cuddles...

And one final group shot...

And then it was time to say our good-byes.  We shared so many special moments and memories, thank you for visiting Gramma and Bopa!  We love you and miss you already :)
