But it’s nice to be back. Little guy had the chance to meet Grandpa Long for the first time and, before it’s all said and done, will get passed around the family Christmas party T.J. Watt Womens Jersey while Mommy enjoys her first glass of wine in nearly a year.

In all honesty, that’s pretty much the only reason I got in the car in the first place.
