I’m Dreaming Tonight of a Place I Love…


I’ll be home for Christmas this year.  I’m so excited.  Will is completely correct when he tells me that home is where we are, here as a family, in San Diego.  I completely agree with that sentiment, but wish to add to it, offering that Denver still holds a piece of home for me.  I’m hoping to recharge and enjoy the Christmas holiday in the middle of the mountains and snow.  Yes, I’m having to partially buy a temporary wardrobe for this little excursion.  My mom said when she woke up a few days ago it was -35 with a high of 2 degrees.  I don’t know how our San Diego shells will handle this Colorado weather.  Really, any excuse to go buy Annie sweater dresses and fuzzy boots would have done just fine.  Will is flying the kids and I down early to give us a little extra time with everyone…almost 3 weeks in all!  Does anyone have any suggestions or well worn tricks for getting a 2 and 5 year old through an airport, happy, content and safely aboard? Obviously, the pictures provide a little glimpse into what we are really dealing with!

    I’ve done more plane trips with the 2 girls than I wish to count. I swear by the sit ‘n’ stand stroller. For some reason one of the girls would always fall alseep right before we were supposed to get off the plane or switch planes. Oh ya, and I wouldn’t leave home without the portable dvd player with 2 headphones.

    @ Jessica, you are a genius. I think I might be taking you up on your offer:)

    Those pictures are so great! As for ideas for kids… I don’t have any. I know my parents always bought several travel games for us, but we were older then. Well, enjoy your trip (and be safe!). That sounds really really cold in Colorado! I can’t even imagine those temperatures!
