I had to work Christmas Eve until 4. So after work I headed to Lisbon. When I arrived it was GEORGIE, Jenna, Nick, Nathan, Bob & Robin. Then arrived Crystal, Baby, & Kyle and then Grandpa and Julie. Nathan went to town to pick up Grandma Joan. We enjoyed a great dinner prepared by Bob and Robin. After that we opened gifts. Everyone got some good stuff. My favorite gift was my "I am Tpain" microphone. It's pretty much awesome - I didn't rap into it at all but Kyle did. We were up pretty late like midnight or so. The next day Nathan and I slept in pretty late. We didn't get up till 11:30. They were having Christmas dinner at 1:30. There were a bunch of relatives there. Food was good again! I ate and ate and ate. Everyone was gone around 6. The Packers played the Bears so we were watching the game. Nathan was drinking too many PBRs and was falling asleep at the table. So we went to bed around 9. I finished watching the game. PACKERS won .. again. Christmas was good ... very thankful to have those Bratlies in my life!!
My little sister graduated college last weekend. She's all grown up now. She wants to move to Houston by March if not earlier. I met my parents at my sisters apartment Friday afternoon. We did some shopping and then met a bunch of people out at Whiskey's that night for some drinks and food. That was fun and we were hope pretty early. Graduation was at 9:30 sat morning. I drove there early with Sissy to find out where she had to go and what not. I then waited for the rents and friends. We sat by Rod cause Cody was graduating too. After graduation we went to Cody and Al's apartment for some snacks and drinks. Everyone eventually made it over. My dad wanted to see Trevor so my mom and dad and Erin and I went over to his place and hung out for a bit. Then we went to see Amber's house in Spring Valley - so Jami, Alysha, Sis, Erin and I traveled over there - stopped for the Cheese Curds at Cady Cheese first - DELICIOUS. Amber's house was super cute and it was nice visiting with her. We then went back to Cody's and drank some beers before we headed to the bars. It was fun going out in Menomonie again. Sissy Jami and I were back at the apartment pretty early ordered some Jeff and Jims. SO GOOD. I woke up the next morning with people all around me - I was on the floor with my jacket and boots still. Must have been a good night. We went out to eat at Perkins Sun morning and I finally got on the road back home around 11. It was a nice weekend with family and friends since I had to work Christmas weekend I couldn't make it back. Here are some pictures:

Last weekend was Nathan's National Guard Christmas Party --- Friday when we go to Lisbon we stopped at Mandy and Codys. The boys were there and were so big and cute, I hadn't seem them in forver! We stayed for a while and then went back to Bob and Robins and went to bed and then Saturday the party started at 12:30. The Steakout catered food to the armory. That was good. They had sumo wrestling tournement - Nathan and Rambow had to go against each other....that was funny - but Nathan lost! They also had a hold em tournement and a blow up thing for the kids. After that we drank some beers at the armory and then went to the Cattlemens I got pretty drunk and ended up having Robin come pick us up from the bar pretty early, but Nathan had to be at drill at 8 am the next morning anyways ... Robbie, Russel, and Trent were there - they are fun and then all of the guard guys of course - and gals! ... Here's some pics!
