Fun Getaway!

We just got back from a fun, but quick getaway. Started off by going to see the Christmas Show at Word of Life in Hudson, FL. It was a new show and just as wonderful as years past. Then we drove to a Tree Farm and cut down our Christmas Tree. We hadn't told the kids about this ahead of time and they were just thrilled. At this place we got to ride on a hayride, find a tree, cut down a tree, ride a horse/pony, eat yummy kettle corn, go through a maze, ride a zipline and ride a train. After that we went to our hotel room. The next day we woke up to go to the ICE exhibit at Gaylord Palms. It was a chilly 9 degrees! The place was just gorgeous. Everything in there was ice including an ice slide, ice walls, ice snowman, ice santa and best of all a complete ice nativity scene. The place was beautiful, but very cold.

It was a wonderful time. I have always wanted to take our children out to cut down our tree. Sometimes as a parent I plan something and it becomes more about me, then about the memory with them. This wasn't one of those things. The kids were all so excited to pick out the perfect tree. Tomorrow we will decorate it.

I'm slowly, but surely working through my Christmas 2010 list. Here are some pics of our fun.

Hi Tabitha and Mark,
Good to see you in Florida. You have a nice home and wonderful family. Your kids are so fun to see on your blog in their many activities. You are to be commended on your work as home school parents. We sure enjoyed our time with Carole and Tim. The trip was a long time coming, but so enjoyable. I think we picked the best wk. Weather was perfect and the going and coming on the road trip was too. We missed the bad storms the day we left. PTL I love reading your blog and your relatives blogs. Blessings to you.
