We left on the evening of Christmas Eve. As we traveled on Christmas Day we "enjoyed" scenery similar to this:
My sister and her family were also there part of the time. My parents were thrilled to have the house ringing with the bustle and activity of children again-- but no doubt they'll appreciate the peace and quiet once we've all gone home again.
We had our gift exchange and Christmas dinner on Sunday. It has been nice to get away and spend time with our extended family this holiday season. We'll start home again on New Year's Day and hope to be back to our normal schedule on Monday.
Hope you had a blessed Christmas! Happy New Year!
