Thursday Thoughts is on Wednesday this week, due to Christmas!
Merry Christmas!! I feel like this Christmas season has really snuck up on me this year. Last week Wednesday I went back home to KC, and then when I heard the news during the night that Grandpa passed away, I came back to Hays on Thursday, and brought Jasper with me, knowing I would stay through Christmas.
Jasper has made himself quite at home, finding lots of cozy new sleeping places. He has bee doing really well with Mom and Dad’s cat and dog, Lucy and Shay. They have had a couple tiffs here and there, but generally they’ve been getting along!
On Saturday, Mom, Kristen, Ava and I went to the mall and did a little shopping, and found these amazing Reindeer antlers. We bought them for Ava, of course, but we had to play with them too.
Ava, Kristen and I spent some time Saturday afternoon baking banana and pumpkin breads. Ava helped out too, and we had to pretend we were princesses because we were wearing our aprons.
Mom, Kristen and I have been able to get in a couple runs over the past week. The weather has been crazy, really nice, then windy, then snowing and blowing, then nice again. Welcome to Kansas, right?
Sunday night, all of my cousins on the Schumacher side, except for Ava, went to Gellas for a late dinner. I cannot remember a time, ever in my life, that all of us have done something like this that wasn’t because of a holiday or family event. Granted, we were gathering for Grandpa’s wake, but we all could have gone our separate ways and eaten with our families, but we ate together. It was really nice to spend some time with my cousins; thanks Grandpa, for getting us together.
Monday was Grandpa’s funeral. It was a beautiful service, and I’m thankful Grandpa is finally with Grandma, and not in pain any longer. Merry Christmas, Grandpa, I love and miss you.
Merry Christmas, I hope you are able to celebrate with family and friends, and relax and enjoy the day!
