Christmases #2/#3-The Horn's

On Christmas Eve we drove the four hour trek from Batesville up to Warsaw, with a quick stop in Munice to drop off and pick up stuff. We made it up in time to take a short nap and head over to Grandma Horn's for the annual Christmas Eve party. We had a wonderful dinner with so much food we could have (and did in some cases) eaten it for a week! Once we finished up there we went to my parents' house hit the hay in order to prepare for the big day. We woke up pretty early to Ally's excited Christmas squeals and opened stockings and then presents. After a yummy breakfast we said goodbye to Matt and Tashina as they headed back home to Indy for their next round of Christmas. We stayed the rest of the week up in Warsaw and did lots of stuff in the area. We went on a few (very cold) walks in the snow and visited Grandma and Grandpa Jo up in Columbia City among a lot of other things. One day we headed north to Amish country and went to a little grocery store that serves the community. We bought 25 pound sack of oatmeal for about 10 dollars (it is normally a dollar per pound) and other bulk items at dirt cheap prices. Well this isn't the actual end of our break or our Christmases (we still haven't had ours as a couple) We ended up back down in Batesville for another week and finally home. It is nice to see family, but it is also nice to be home and no longer living out of a suitcase.
