Does anyone else, when referencing their parent's home/hometown, say they are going home when they go to visit their parents?
Even though our home is in Tucson, my "home" where I feel all warm and fuzzy will probably always be the Texas Panhandle.
Please tell me that I'm not the only one who feels that way....
Well anyways, we are currently on the tail end of this wonderfully long Christmas break from AZ life. It's been pretty wonderful..there is something so beautiful and comforting about the barren flatness that is the Panhandle!
So what have we done during this stay..well I am gonna tell you...in list form because that seems to be my 2012 trend :-)
- Take a break
- Revert back to Annie's newborn sleeping schedule...I sure did miss those early morning hours....not...
- Take more breaks because of the above lack of sleep.
- Make 8 key lime pies completely from scratch...our new Christmas tradition!
- Take a break after making and sampling said pies....declare them perfection and lapse into a sugar coma.
- Load up the pies and take them to those friends and family members that are on our must see list....mind you this takes place over 3 days because of our little one who feels the need to either nap or have a melt down. (Don't worry Annie...your mom was the same way,well she still is...).
- Show off nearly 6 month old child to everyone in town....because she is something of a local celebrity. You should have seen everyone at church....she stole the show :)
- Take another break, because, well because you can!
- Soak up all the grandparent and great grandparent time that can be had by Annie in the span of 2 weeks. I hate that they are so far away!
- Attempt to order a new car...complete failure.
- Research cars that have the options that we want.
- Breathe in all the Texas air you can.
- Enjoy this break, spend time with family, escape reality, and make memories!
This is what we did on our 2 week break from reality!
(I realized after being back in AZ for 2 weeks that I failed to publish this....oops)
