Merry Christmas

christmas-tree   I didn’t really mean to take a blogging break the last couple days, but we are traveling and I didn’t have internet. I thought I would get all twitchy, but it has actually been nice to be unplugged for a bit. We came down to Florida with the whole family and surprised the girls with a trip to Disney. I am now forever convinced that the best way to do Disney is by complete surprise. It was so fun to watch them discover we were going there.

Needless to say Disney two days before Christmas is exhausting. Actually Disney is probably exhausting anytime. But I feel asleep at 8 pm last night. I think I beat the kids to sleep. I am still recovering today. My good blogging friend Amanda has recommended a church to us so we are heading out to Christmas Eve service. I am so thankful for that because it is hard for this Midwesterner to feel like it is Christmas when I am wearing shorts and there is no snow on the ground.

So all this to say, I will be unplugged a bit until the new year. I might pop on from time to time if I get twitchy, but I will be enjoying time with family. You probably want to subscribe by RSS or email so you don’t miss anything exciting (hint, hint).

I pray your family has a blessed and wonderful Christmas!!


  1. How fun!! We surprised our girls with a Disney trip in April – took them out of school for a week and met my husband’s entire family down there. It was so great! Merry Christmas to you too!

  3. We’ve gotten into the habbit of not really telling the kids whenever we’re doing anything. That way if plans fall through, or my family disappoints (which can happen often) they aren’t sad. Life just kinda goes on as normal.

    When we FINALLY take these kiddos to Disney I’m definitely going to do it this way…. I bet the light up of their eyes was worth it!!

    Merry Christmas, Jill. Travel safe and enjoy whatever unplugged time you can get.

  4. We’re doing that for Mister Monster who is 5 – we’re taking him to Disney over Memorial Day Weekend we’ll be there for a week – he doesn’t know about it yet! And i’m really excited to pull up to the Magic Kingdom and to see his face! It will be his first time! We’re meeting Chris’ whole family down there and should be a really great time!
    Hope you and your family had a Great Christmas! As you can tell – I’m a little late on my comment because I was traveling as well!! :)

  7. I think it’s a great idea to surprise your kids with Disney! I have to wait until my youngest is at least two so we can ride some of the rides. I want to make sure my oldest can remember it, because I went and never remembered it!
