Maghan Aschoff: Facility Services Manager
I’m originally from Michigan and we haven’t been back there for a couple years, so we decided to travel back for the holiday.
Since both my husband and myself have family in Michigan, we split up our time between several houses. It makes for a busy holiday week with lots of family, food and fun!
Our first Thanksgiving was spent with my in-laws on Monday. It was a quiet evening with lots of food and many, many hours of playing Guitar Hero and Dominos. My kids certainly enjoy being here because they were the only kids in the house, which meant they got some extra special attention from their grandparents.
On Wednesday, we headed over to my mom's house. Both my brothers and their families live in Michigan, so we had all 20 of us for dinner. Thanksgiving day was spent with my mom, both of my brothers, theirs kids and spouses. I also got to meet the newest members of our family, my 11 month great niece, Ruby (yikes that makes me sound super old!). The day was filled with lots of family. It was loud, chaotic and fun!
We spent the next two days visiting with my family. My one brother has 6 kids and a house filled with pinball machines, bubble hockey, laser tag, wii, legos, and lots of other games to keep the kiddos busy!
We had a great visit, however, we were all happy to be home. We spent Sunday decorating the house and getting our tree up. We’re all ready for Christmas!
