Being as we are just an 8 hour drive to Orlando, we took a few days of our Christmas vacation and went to Sea World. and Universal Studios/Adventure Island.  I shared a few pics of our days.  The drive down was not so much fun as we hit a lot of traffic and rain.  It made for a long first leg of our trip.  We made it safely though and we enjoyed the trip.  Sea World was our favorite place of the 3 parks we visited.  We arrived home on Christmas Eve and still had preparations to do for Christmas Day, so it was a busy evening.  After this trip we all agreed though we are more beach vacation family than amusement park family!!

My 3 blessings......  This is one of the two photos that made the cut for this years Christmas card.  I'm always pretty picky about the photos I take for the card, but this year I lucked out and the kids only had to put up with my camera clicking for about 15 minutes.  I'm looking forward to some time off of work  to spend with the family.  We have a few things planned for the time off.  Below is the other photo that made the Christmas card cut.  I love all 3 of their smiles!

Here is Will and his BFF from the neighborhood.  They were out in the backyard playing Wiffle ball without shirts as you can see.  I sure love it that you can be out in Dec. in barefeet and no shirts!! They played ball for at least an hour and a half with Jeffrey.  They came in to claim a drink from me as they worked up quite a thirst out there.  They play HARD.  We had a beautiful weather weekend.  Jack had a tennis tourney and our Jaymie Claire turned 12 on Sat. She is having her party on Wednesday since it is a half school day.  I took Jaymie out to Dunkin Donuts for breakfast, her favorite sub place for lunch and her daddy brought her home OLIVE GARDEN for dinner.  Will and I took her shopping for a few new things and to end the night after Jeffrey and Jack got home from the tourney the kids decorated the Christmas tree!!   We are blessed!   Back to the grinding work week tomorrow.  Only 3 more weeks til our break from school.  So looking forward to that.
