So we are leaving in the morning for our Christmas "vacation". I put it that way because I am not sure it will feel like much of a vacation for most of the time. We are first driving to Michigan and then to Atlanta and back to IL- in like 8 days. I think if I calculated it it might be 1/3 of the time driving. Oh well. . . I am still excited. I have always liked roadtrips as long as I am driving, I get car sick otherwise. This will be the longest trip we have taken with the kids but thank God that we have a minivan now and not our tiny little Aveo. I mean, don't get me wrong, the gas mileage in that car was great but we just could not have possibly fit in there. Plus it is a bonus that the minivan has a DVD player too.
I am not sure that I will make another post for at least a week or possibly two so I am gonna go ahead and post some pictures I took today of the kids. The first is of Maggie singing "Mary Had a Little Lamb". She is wearing her "princess dress". As much and I wanted and tried to prevent her from having an obsession with princesses, I failed. She insists on wearing the dress everyday- and she wants to sleep in it. She has to wear the headband, tights and shoes with it too. The next picture is of her posing with Caleb. She is getting somewhat better about sitting still long enough for me to take a decent shot. The last is of Caleb's attempted sitting. You tell me what you think of it. I call it a sit but I am sure the pediatricians may disagree. I have more pictures but these are the highlights. Be sure to check back after Christmas for more updates from our trip.
Merry Christmas to everyone!!
P.S. Sorry I am such a pathetic wife and didn't do Christmas cards. Maybe after we have been married for 5 years I will have my act and addresses together enough to get that done!
