Christmas Crazy

The Holiday season was as crazy as ever in our house, but I think even though we did not have any family visit with us this year that we managed to pull it off. Girls are on their first winter break since starting back to Public school and so lots of sleeping in and just plain vegging out. Presents were a hit and we managed to have great excitement over all of them down to the little stocking suffers. We now face the task of taking down the decorations before the New Year begins. Luckily the girls do not make resolutions so we face no disappointments on that front…. I am sure I will make the same ones that I do every year and break them the very next day, here’s to tradition. As we have more picture takers in the family now I stand a good chance of getting some memories taken. So as I sit down to think about the New Year here is what Christmas looked like.

Road Trip!

We took a trip down memory lane this past week when we went to visit my husband’s old stomping grounds. Terry’s choir directors from when he was a boy where being honored for all the lives that they had touched with their music. It was amazing to hear the choir come together after 40 ish years and one rehearsal, it sounded wonderful full of love and reverence.  We travelled with all our snacks and electronics and car bingo cards !!!!!  We stayed in a hotel and swam in the pool and it was a great break for everyone. I think that is always good to show your children your roots and your friends from your childhood, it gives them a better view of you as a whole person and not just mom and dad.
