To jump start our Christmas 2011 adventure we had Nate, Telisha, and their cute kiddos here with us in Texas. They got here late Wednesday night, we stayed up with them for just a little bit that night because I had to work all day Thursday (boo!). They met me for my lunch break on Thursday, which was a lot of fun watching the kids go crazy in the McDonald's play place. Then we had a get together with all our family here after I got off work on Thursday, and then we all left that night for California! We love visiting them in Ohio, but it was fun to have them here with us too! It was a quick stop for them, but we're so glad they came.

Look at all these cousins!
We left straight from Aunt Elaine and Uncle Mark's house for California. We all packed in the minivan with a car top carrier with three kids, four adults, and 22 hours ahead of us. We definitely had some memorable moments which include but are not limited to; getting pulled off the highway by an angry cop because the highways were closed, being stranded for hours on end in New Mexico, seeing Nate lose his mind for the first time :), watching the kids tear up a phone book and throw the pages everywhere, off roading in the KIA through the back roads of New Mexico, and so much more! All in all it was a fun trip, and we're glad we got to spend it with some of our favorite family.
Thanks Nate and T for making the trip out to Texas and for letting us go with you to California with you and your sweet kiddos. It was the start to a truly memorable Christmas! More to come... :)
