Holiday Bliss

So much for posting every day. I will try to get better though, I promise!

Our Christmas was wonderful, as usual. Well, I guess this one was more wonderful because Kyle is big enough to participate. He got lots of fun presents and had a great time opening them. He got some books, toys, golf balls, etc. He loved the tradition of eating cinnamon rolls on Christmas morning and ate almost a whole one by himself (bad Mommy!). We got some good video of him and lots of pictures.

For Christmas dinner we went to the RV lodge and did a potluck with everyone in the park. There was a ton of good food and, best of all, very little clean-up for us! Yay! After dinner there was karaoke and Mom and I stayed down there and sang a few songs. It was pretty fun.

The day after Christmas we headed up to Northern Texas to spend a few days with a friend's family. They live in the country and have about 47 acres, so it was great to get away from it all. We have spent most of our lives 'away from it all', so it was a great little mini-vacation for us. The dogs got to spend a lot of time just running and exploring. Kyle got to do the same, though he cannot quite run yet. It was great to spend time with Wayne and Sage, getting to meet Al, Gail, and Wendy, and getting to recharge our souls. If we cannot spend Christmas at home at least we got to spend Christmas around family and friends. We had a lot of fun, Kyle had a blast, and the dogs were in heaven. What more could we ask for!
