Christmas Trip: Michigan (Pt 1)

On Christmas Day, we flew to Michigan, which is where the Fennema side of our family gets together each year to celebrate together.  We had a wonderful time – lots of laughter, lots of tasty food, lots of game-playing, and even a fun Christmas play.  It’s always fun to be with our family!

A note about our Christmas play: growing up, my cousins and I ALWAYS did a play for the adults.  I was usually the director and my cousins were the talent.  Ethan mentioned wanting to do a Christmas play with them, so I asked if they’d be interested.  OF COURSE they all jumped for the opportunity and absolutely made Ethan’s day.  He was SO proud of the play and all the cousins’ excitement to do it.  It was such a sweet gesture on their part and was lots of fun.  Thanks, cousins!! =)
