We spent Christmas in Idaho this year. We were able to spend almost two entire weeks there. It was quite an eventful trip with a toddler and a newborn. The kids traveled pretty well for most of the trip. It was a trip of firsts: Zane learned to climb out of his Pack 'n' Play, he got the flu, and got carsick. Unfortunately, my dad was recovering from a surgery and my mom got the flu on Christmas eve. Because mom and dad were under the weather we went to Chris and Kristi's for Christmas Eve and the Nativity. It was nice to spend some time with them.
Zane and Daddy spent some time out in the snow. Zane wasn't too sure about it. It was all too new for him. Kevin got to blow the driveway a lot since Mom and Dad were under the weather.
Once Grandma was feeling better she was back to her old self--basically spending hours in the kitchen. Her grandkids will always remember fun times with her, cooking up new or fun recipes. Zane enjoyed popping popcorn and pushing the button on the food processor.
Of course, there are too many pictures to post. We had such a great time. It's always fun to stay with Mom and Dad. I'm sure we stayed too long. Some day we will live closer.
