I'm on vacation! Well, I don't know how much of a "vacation" it is when you're traveling 7 hours each way in the car with two toddlers. :-) Mama and I are taking the kids to Alabama to visit my aunt and cousins. Hmmmm, maybe Brian is actually the one on vacation? We were supposed to leave yesterday, but since I was diagnosed with strep throat on Sunday, I needed a couple of days for those antibiotics to kick in so I don't go up there infecting everyone.
We have made this a Christmas tradition. We weren't able to go last year since my Grandpa passed and everyone was here for his funeral, but we try to go every year after Christmas. We all have so much fun! The kids all get another Christmas, and it is so nice being with family.
Two years ago we went to the "Holiday Spectacular", and we're looking forward to going again this year. It is this big thing out in the woods with tons and tons of lights and Christmas decorations. We all bundle up and head out. First we have dinner by the campfire, where you can roast marshmallows too.
Then we check out all of the cute displays and the awesome lights.
I'm dreading the 7 hour drive, but I'm really looking forward to spending time with my family. Other than my parents and my brother, my aunt and her family are pretty much it. We have a small family for sure, but we are all super close. We're going to have a great time!
I know I've been MIA lately, and I probably will be most of this week, too. I'm really sorry about that, but I will definitely get caught up with you all when I get back. I hope everyone has a Happy New Year!
