Merry Christmas and Happy New Year!

Well it has been a super busy but fun holiday season!
Christmas was celebrated over 3 super fun days! We celebrated in Nashville on the 23rd and my Mom came down. Santa came the night of the 22nd and we had Christmas morning on the 23rd. That was a lot of fun!
We headed to Ktown on the 24th for a day of celebrating with R & G and Robbie's family. Then on Christmas we headed to Grammy and Grampys for a yummy lunch and then over to my Moms for nap and dinner. All of it was crazy but fun and I wouldn't miss a moment of any of it!

On the 26th Robbie and Gina took us to Charleston for 4 days! It was wonderful! I had never been to the beach in the winter (by winter I mean it was high 60s low 70s the whole time we were there) and we had a blast. The weather was great, the condo was great, the food was great! What more could you ask for. The kids loved running and playing on the beach. HJ would have had no problems swimming in the ocean happily until he died of hypothermia but we would not let him. We all waded a few feet into the water and all the adults and CJ thought our feet were going to fall off it was so cold! I mean take your breath away cold!!! HJ happily ran thru the water until we told him to stop. Does the boy not feel cold like the rest of us??? ( We did let him swim in the outdoor heated pool!)

The boys had fun throwing the football on the beach while the girls went hunting for seashells. We also had a lot of fun playing on the playground at the resort and the local park. The condo we were in overlooked a pond where there were signs warning of alligators. The kids enjoyed going on the deck and looking for them but we never saw one!

We got to eat at some great restaurants and now we are ready for our new year's diet!

Thanks Oma and Opa for a great trip and fun memories.
I wish I had pics but silly me left both my cameras in Nashville for Christmas and the beach trip. I am still mad at myself for that! The pics posted were taken from our Nashville Christmas!
