Happy Holidays!

This will most likely be my last post until we return from our Holiday trip to southern California. We will be back on New Years eve day and I promise to have lots of fun pictures to share with you.

Today I will be finishing up the wrapping of the gifts, baking some cookies and packing for our trip. We are having a Christmas Eve dinner tomorrow night at my Mom's house. We are all bringing something so it won't be too much of a burden on any one person. I am bringing a brown sugar ham, grilled salmon, corn casserole, and vanilla sweet potatoes.

We will be flying south on Christmas day to spend a week with my dad and family members down there. I am hoping for warmish, dry weather as it has been pretty soggy here lately. We are going to go to the San Diego Wild Animal Park, and Hollywood for sure. The kids really want to see the stars on the sidewalk. My hubby and I have been there before. If anyone knows of a must see place we should go, let me know. We are open to anything interesting the kids might like. We were down there in June and went to Universal Studios, a water park and the beach. We have done Disneyland a couple times before.

Also, I am starting to plan our family vacation to Maui next June. If anyone knows of a good place to stay, I would love to hear about it. I have been online a lot looking at possibilities and I have a couple ideas, just thought I would ask my blog friends if you have any suggestions.

I hope you are all safe and cozy and have a wonderful time with your family this holiday season! Best wishes from our family to yours.
