** This week has been crazy at work playing catch up but I PROMISE to start recaps this weekend once I have time to upload all my pictures. In fact I'm suppose to get my pro pictures today on DVD!!!! To say I'm excited would be the understatement of the year.
What I wanted to talk about first are my new in-laws. I've mentioned before how much I love Kristian's family but after the wedding I have to say I absolutely adore them even more. And I'm not just talking about his immediate family but all of his aunts/uncles and cousins. I've met most of them in the past during the holidays but there were a few that I met for the first time at the wedding who live far away. As expected they were equally as nice and welcoming as everyone else.
Last night we went to his parents house to help celebrate his/our niece's 14th birthday. It was the first time seeing his parents since the honeymoon and his sister and her kids since the wedding. Everyone kept referring to me as Mrs. P..... and his dad kept hugging me and calling me his daughter in law. It was very sweet.
We watched a slideshow of all the honeymoon pictures while listening to our wedding CD favor...sidenote-his parents said they've received so many compliments on the CD and the choice of songs. In addition to eating birthday cake we also decided to go ahead and cut into the top tier of our wedding cake which his mother initially planned to freeze until our one year anniversary. I'm not really sure who came up with that tradition but the thought of eating year old frozen cake kinda grosses me out so we decided to just eat it now. And it's delish.
I'm so fortunate to have such a wonderful new extended family. I really did hit the In Law lottery. I've heard so many horror stories of people hating their in-laws but as of now things are great and I just hope it continues.
