Grandma, Grandpa, Aunt Sharon, Emma, and Brody all came to visit the weekend before Thanksgiving. We had a wonderful time visiting (even though I didn’t get to be there as much as I would like because I had to go to a baby shower). Gabby and Emma were, as usual, inseparable and constantly giggling about one thing or another. All of the kids went with Aunt Sharon to visit her friends and they had a blast playing with other kids. Then, once all arrived back to the house we went out to dinner at Zio’s one of our favorite Italian restaurants. After dinner Aunt Sharon took the kids back to the house while we stopped at the store on the way home to get a drink for me.
Once we arrived at the house and opened the door I was greeting loudly with “Surprise!” by Grandma, Grandpa, Aunt Sharon, Brody, Emma and all of my friends! The first thing I saw and heard when I walked through the door was sweet little Gabby front and center, holding her giant black framed nerd glasses on her face and yelling “uprise!” Gabby was so excited and it was so adorable. I was truly surprised and overwhelmed by the people there to celebrate me turning 30. After greeting a few people Grandma and Grandpa informed me that they were taking the kids to my house and allowing us to have an adult only party. I packed Gabby a bag and we loaded the children in the car with Grandma and Grandpa and shipped you all to Grandma and Papa’s house to spend the night. Grandma and Grandpa gave me the greatest gift of building memories with my friends and Daddy. It was fun to be silly and dress up like a nerd. The combination of everyone’s work made my 30th birthday the greatest!
