Christmas was great with my family and our trip out to New Brunswick to visit Jordan’s family for the New Year was just as wonderful and relaxing. We drove the car this year, rather than the truck, hoping to save on gas money. Luckily, we didn’t spot any moose on our drive, but we did see a couple deer in the middle of the road. We arrived in time for a New Year’s Eve dinner at my sister-in-law’s house.
We stayed the week at Jordan’s parents’ house and ate way too much good food. Each day his mother cooked lunch and dinner, and I’m definitely not used to eating that much food! We visited two of Jordan’s friends (whose wives are expecting, both due in January, but they didn’t have their babies until the week after we left), hung out with family, went on some walks/hikes, and Jordan even went snowboarding. He ended up spraining his right wrist and wore a tension band all week!
Jordan’s sister, Serena, sold her house while we were there and she came with us back to Ontario. Her husband is living and working in Ottawa and now they can buy a house there. They’ll be much closer to us now! His parents should be coming down in the spring to visit and they said they would help us with some renovations around the house. We need to paint some walls and fix the roof over the kitchen!
