I was able to squish all my work days together so we could have some time to travel over Christmas. I was scheduled to work Christmas day, and a co-worker asked if I would switch with her, since she wanted New Years Day off. Good deal!
We headed to see the Brown family first in West VA. Lots of fun exploring inside and out, and the kids enjoyed the dog and cat almost as much as visiting family. It was nice to visit and see (some) of the Brown side, as we are not able to get together too often anymore.
We did some exploring outside, and Michael enjoyed the Wii.
Next, we headed to Ohio, where the kids were in cousin heaven. We missed those who were not able to come, and the time was much too short, but we were glad to be able to go. No ER visit this year for Jon, like last year, so we consider it a "win."
The kids opened their presents from us after Christmas, which consisted pretty much of a bunch of Legos and a few other small things. They love Legos!
