Our 2 week jaunt up north to visit our families for Christmas has come and gone. It was such a wonderful trip of getting away from the hustle and bustle of our life and enjoying some much needed down time and moments with our extended family. The kids had a blast playing with their cousins and the family animals. The weather was gorgeous almost the entire time. In fact, the kids were quite disappointed when they realized that it more than likely wasn't going to snow. Nate kept saying "but its Christmas! It has to snow on Christmas!" It did flurry for a little bit a couple of days after Christmas, so at least the kids were able to catch a few flakes on their tongues.
