With Hubby's Granny not in very good health, Hubby's mom has been here for going on 2 weeks. Obviously, my in-laws haven't been able to see each other in quite some time. So...yesterday, my father-in-law was able to work in a work trip with a short little extension to come and see his wife mainly, but also to see all of us.
We had originally made plans to have a nice dinner out but at the last minute we decided to simply gather around my sister-in-law's kitchen table for a family dinner. It was definitely the right decision! They have recently moved into a new, much bigger, house and it was a great opportunity for us to finally get to see their new home. Hubby & I; my sister-in-law, her husband, & my two adorable nephews Hunter & Jackson; my in-laws; & Hubby's aunt & uncle all joined together for a lovely dinner & great fellowship. Soon after dinner, Nick's aunt & uncle headed back home but we spent the rest of the evening just enjoying family time. I spent time chatting it up with my SIL & MIL and Hubby spent time with the little guys & also got to catch up with his dad & BIL. It was such a comfortable, relaxing evening.
There's just something about gathering together & having a meal with those people who you love the most. I've said it before, but God blessed me with such an amazing family & then he poured out his blessings again by giving me a fabulous set of in-laws. I realize that not everyone has a great relationship with their in-laws but that couldn't be farther from the truth for us. My parents have fully embraced Nick as their own & vice versa for his parents with me. Oh how blessed we are to now have 2 sets of parents in our lives for unconditional love & support.
