Britt Learns to Shave
Well, it's been a long vacation. We had a really great time with the family in Alabama for Thanksgiving. It was the first time we had been there since Rebecca was 1 month old. We were also able to travel up to Tennessee to see family. It was sad that Gary wasn't able to come and be with us that. I suppose it's extra special to us, since Gary and I first met in person the weekend after Thanksgiving. We came home and had a really wonderful time getting ready for Christmas. The kids had Elves come for the first time this year, and we really enjoyed that. Right after Christmas we left for Florida to spend time with Gary's family and Little Union. It was really wonderful to go back and visit since we haven't been down since July. Perhaps that is the biggest downside to living in PA, we are so very far from our families. If we are able to go to Alabama twice a year, and Florida twice a year, and have our parents each come up once a year, we will be able to see family about 6 times a year, every other month if we space it right. We understand how precious our time together is, are grateful for it, and will try our best to make the most of it.
