Merry Merry Christmas!!!!

We had a wonderful Christmas this year. It's amazing how quickly this day comes and goes. We enjoyed our time down in Florida for the week before. Alexis got to spend some quality time with Nana and Papa and Uncle Todd. The weather was wonderful so it was tough to make our way back north. We spent the week playing golf in 80 degree weather and then had to come back to 8 degree weather. I still ask myself everyday in the winter why I live up north? It was difficult to adjust but at least I have that opportunity. Anyway, here are some pictures of our week of festivities. I hope everyone had a wonderful Christmas too!!!

Our upcoming trip!!!

Well we're trying to start to get a few things together before taking off to Florida this weekend. We will be spending a week in the warmth and sunshine and get out of this so called wonderful winter weather. I am really looking forward to it. A week off of work is worth it even more. The only downside to our trip this year is that we will be driving!!!! Yes I did say driving. Ever since my husband decided to take this leave of absence we do not get flight benefits anymore. BooHoo!!!! 20 hours in the car with a 3 year old should be interesting. I'm hoping that I have enough for her to do so she doesn't drive us absolutely crazy the entire way down. She's usually pretty good in the car. I'm bringing lots and lots of movies. We're planning on stopping overnight in Atlanta and staying with some friends. Then in the morning we'll finish our journey. Mom and Dad are looking forward to seeing Alexis....and us too. They have a new puppy now that Alexis is dying to see too. Anyway, I'll update on how our ride down was. I hope I can say uneventful.
