Christmas in NJ

This was a NJ year for Christmas, so we all traveled back to Mom & Dad's house to celebrate.    As always, the road trip is an adventure with all of the kids, but they did pretty well considering the 12 hour drive.  We were there for almost a week and enjoyed spending time with family.  What I love most about the holidays is getting everyone together and giving my extended family a chance to see my kids.  I want my kids to know who their family is, and have a good relationship with their Grandparents and Great-Grandparents just like I did.

As always we were spoiled with lots of goodies.  The kids enjoyed all of the attention, and while it is crazy, I actually like all of the yummy food and crazy schedules.

Finally got my magazine subscription to Life Beautiful.  I think I've only asked for it for about 3 years now.
