Christmas and New Years were incredible this year for 2 very specific reasons...my little eagles. It was exhausting and there were lots of tears shed, but it was just so awesome to have my babies with me to celebrate my favorite holidays.
Here are the bullet points from my week long Christmas vacation and the closing days of 2012.
Getting out of work early on Friday before Christmas to get packed up for our first week long trip away from home with the babies. Then, being all ready to go, but having to wait until UPS dropped off 2 final Christmas presents.
