My First Bloggy Meetup!

While we were down in Maryland visiting with Phil's family over Thanksgiving, we made plans to meet up with The Gales from All Things Gale.  Lisa's blog always makes me pee my pants laugh, and I knew she was the type of blog buddy that could easily translate into a friend IRL.  (That's blog-snob for In Real Life).

We brought them over some coffee, and they served us lunch, and we chatted as though we've known each other for years.  Although, one of the first things she said was "Phew, I'm glad you're not a serial killer!"  Ha!  The feeling was mutual :)

Maggie was in love with Elena and wanted to take her did I :)

 Eamon goofed around with Leo...

and Lisa didn't even bat an eye when the boys started throwing the football in her house.  What a cool mom!

I may not be a serial killer, but I was almost a kidnapper.  I mean, how cute is this baby girl!?!?!?
I only wish we lived closer, but at least we have some friends to visit when we travel down to Maryland each year.  Thanks for hosting us Gale Family, and we will happily return the favor!

Happy First Sunday of Advent

We're preparing our hearts and homes... welcome Him with as much love and joy as she did.
