Christmas

I loved the holiday season this year! Usually for Christmas Dean takes off a few days, but this year he was able to take the whole week off and we spent time with both of our families. I guess that's what happens when work slows down- bad for job security, but good for vacation time!
Anyways, we had a really fun time seeing everyone and just relaxing. Santa brought bikes for the girls, and we have been on bike rides everyday since. It is so fun to see them on those- such a sense of freedom! As wonderful as it was to get away, we were so glad to come back home. I know I will be complaining of the heat in the summer, but I realized that I am just not used to the cold anymore. This past week we have been enjoying picnics at the park in shorts and t-shirts!

Adrienne, what cute pics! I loved to see the ones of your Dad and Erica, too. I miss the good ol' days of high school and being able to see you and your family every day! Looks like you guys had a great Christmas. Also heard that you were training for a triathlon. You go girl!
