This year for our annual December trip, we took the kids to Roatan. Yes, you heard right; it’s a small island off the coast of Hondoras—get out the map.
The last few years, we’ve spent a week in Cabo San Lucas, Mexico, but we decided to try somewhere new. Baby Girl, Sweet Miss, and her Fellow joined us (after four years of hanging around, we figure he’d paid his dues).
We enjoyed sunsets, snorkeling, and that laid back tropical life for a week. Now we’re home, and we have cookies to bake, presents to wrap, and that last bit of shopping to do. I love having a bit of down time in the midst of the hustle and bustle, but somehow I’m never as put together as I had hoped for when we get back.
Here’s wishing your Christmas is filled with joy and peace and that you’re surrounded by the people you love.
Merry Christmas from the Big White House on the Hill.
