Hey Folks! Time for a catch up on what we've been doing!
On Thursday, we left home at 1, and cruised into Merritt Island at 9 pm (8 our time). We had a wonderful Christmas Eve (sunny and mild - I even started the day off with a run!) with the whole family, filled with many gifts, lots of laughs, an amazing brunch and dinner, a brief visit with Philip's dad, and a Christmas Eve service at church.
Christmas day, we were up pretty early to get ready to head to the airport. We bid our Florida family goodbye and Dad drove us to the airport. Our flight (direct and only two hours - cake compared to what our kids have been through!) went fine and we even got into Detroit 20 minutes early! The Christmas cheer continued, when we got upgraded at the rental place to a (super nice) mini van instead of a car! Sweet!
We headed to Uncle Tim and Aunt Toni's where we joined most of our Michigan family for an "Ugly Christmas Sweater" Christmas gathering with more gifts, laughs, amazing food and totally awesome games!
We got home to Aunt Mary's quite late last night and all crashed immediately. Today has been pretty relaxing, hanging out at the house, watching football, eating Christmas goodies, and this afternoon we took the kids sledding for the first time! It was quite cold, but they loved it! Keenan especially rocked the sledding hill! He was Born to sled! =0) Funny pictures and video to be shared when we get home.
That about catches us up to now. Spaghetti for dinner and then some "Big Bang Theory" later - woohoo! =0)
