Christmas Vacation Recap

Finally getting around to blogging about Christmas Vacation! We celebrated Christmas Day itself on our own. We had plans to go to a friend's house BUT Cajun ended up getting a bone as a gift that didn't agree with him. I couldn't leave my little buddy at home alone on Christmas puking, so we stayed at home.

We had a pretty low key day. We exchanged gifts. Matt got me this great little whale bracelet :)

And then we got Chinese food and watched Elf. Turned out to be a pretty great day!

The next day Matt worked and then we decided to head to Virginia when he got off work. We drove from 8 pm to 3 am. Yeah it was as awful as it sounds! But, it mean an extra day at home!!

Thursday we headed to Matt's side of the family.

We met the new baby (our niece) Isabella and gave his other niece Mercedes a ton of gifts! We also got to see some of his cousins, his "Mom" and his Grandparents. We had REAL mexican for dinner with his sister, her husband and their Mom. It was a great night!

The next day we played with the baby for a bit and then headed back to my family's house.

We celebrated Christmas with them on  Saturday. We had a great dinner and then exchanged gifts.

Sunday we decided last minute to stay an extra night, sort of, so we could go to Christmas Town at Bush Gardens with my sister and her husband. It was so worth the crazy hours we drove home!

Monday we pulled in to our drive way at 10 am. Whew! Matt went to work and I unpacked and cleaned up.

It was a great vacation but per usual went by WAY too quick! I miss everybody already and can't wait until the next time I get to give everyone a giant hug :)

Wow, I could not handle that much night driving! Looks like a fun trip, though. :)
