Christmas Vacation!

After a few days of R&R as our little family we will be hitting the road for the next week and half. We'll start the great Christmas Vacation of 2011 by heading to see my awesome in-laws and celebrate Christmas just the five of us. I still can't believe how lucky I am to have married into this family!! Then, we'll head back up the road to see the Wards for a few days. It's never easy to get all the Wardlets together so the fact that we will be under the same roof for more than 24 hours is enough to have me jumping for joy! 

We'll wake up at my parent's house Christmas morning and then go see all my mom's extended family and celebrate with them before hitting the road yet again to see all of David's extended family. The next morning we will wake up and head out for the longest leg of the break-Florida! Here we will get to visit with even more of David's incredible extended family! Wait, it doesn't end there. After a few days in Florida we'll head back to my parent's house to celebrate my dad's birthday-he's a New Year's Eve baby! The final part of our trip will send us back to David's extended family for a special southern New Year's Day supper filled with collards, hoppin' John's, and more! The next morning will have me back at school and in the swing of things again.

Will it get crazy at times? Absolutely. Will I love every minute of it? Absolutely! The good news is both of our families are filled with amazing people. I realize how truly blessed we are to be able to say that! Any advice on fun things to do in the car and how to stay sane during the crazy??


  1. Sounds like a great Christmas to me! Enjoy your family time. :)
