Christmas, Finally

warning! if you don't have about an hour to look at all my photos, read no further! seriously, how many pictures can i add? i swear this is only a small sampling of the pictures i took over the holidays, but these are my favorites and capture our trip up north pretty well, i think. to explain my absence from blogland, we left for DE last tuesday and we got back about 8pm on sunday night. the drive up wasn't bad, only long. we have the best little traveler. he never cried, never complained, we didn't even have to bring out the dvd player! he was starting with a little cough and we kept asking if he was okay and if he was gonna make the end of the trip, he would just answer us like this..."momma, just coffee (coughing), gon' mate it." too stinkin' cute. he ended up going to the dr. on christmas eve and having a sinus infection, so i felt really bad for him, but he seemed to have a great time despite the fever and nasty cough. such a trooper. toby and i got to go to midnight mass on christmas eve/morning and for my first time, i really enjoyed it despite yawning through it and it being about 19 degrees when we left there at 1:30am. we were able to see almost all of our family and to me that was the most important part. we missed most of the festivities last year and that really made me realize how much i enjoy all the traditions of the season. enjoy my recap below....and happy new year!
