Christmas Vacation!!!

Over the holidays we went to Florida.  Grandpa and Grandma M. recently bought a home near Ft. Myers, Florida, and we decided to go for a visit.

The kids were very excited when Santa surprised them with tickets to Disn*y World!!  FYI - Santa came to our house early this year.  We drove straight through to Orlando.  We left at 9 pm on Thursday and arrived at around 10:00 pm Friday.  It was an extremely tough drive, but we were trying to stay ahead of the bad weather tailing us.

*Side Note - On the way there, we stopped at Crack*r Barrel for breakfast in Tennessee.  As we were leaving, a lady stopped me and said that she had something for our family.  She said she was waiting for God to tell her who to give a certain gift to.  She ran out to her RV and grabbed a package.  She asked me not to open it until we got to the car.  Once in the car, we opened it up.  Inside was a mason jar filled with money (over $100).  What a blessing she was to our family.*

We didn't get to Disn*y until about 1:00 pm, because we slept in.  We thought the kids would tucker out around 8-9 pm.  However, they closed the park down.  We didn't get out of the park until about 1:30 am!!!!!!!!!!!  Crazy kids.

The next day, we drove a few hours to Grandpa and Grandma's house.  We were so very excited to see them.  We just relaxed that day!  The following day we all went to the beach.  It was wonderful weather.  The next day we visited the Shell Museum and went to Christmas Eve service.  We also enjoyed a nice seafood dinner.  Christmas Day was nice and relaxing, and we enjoyed a yummy dinner and dessert.  It seemed like we had just arrived when it was time to go again.  We left early the next morning and drove through Atlanta and rested for the night.  We drove all day the next day and finally arrived home. Home Sweet Home!

Now it is time for photos!
