Christmas Vacation

Who says you have to travel across the country or the world to have a Family Christmas Vacation?  Well you don't.  You don't have to even leave the state.  We didn't even have to drive more than two hours.

Today after we dropped one of the kids off at T's Mom's, (ok it was only Laila our Boxer) and then we were on our way to Lake Lanier for the Magical Nights of Lights.  It is a 7 mile stretch of Christmas lights from Reindeer to SpongeBlob NoPants, to displays of the 12 Days of Christmas.

Of course what is a Family Vacation without a little bit of drama.  We got to Lake Lanier and we checked in and me not knowing how much we paid for the room signed the papers and got the room keys and we were on our way to a Lake House.   We finally get to Lake House #18 and we get in and

HOLY COW!  It was a Sweet Lake House.  We had big rooms and a fire place and a kitchen and a back deck with a hot tub. Yeah a hot tub. Something I planned on using after the kids were asleep.

Then it happened.  T asked me how much the room was cause she had a feeling they sent us to the wrong place.  So I drove back up to the main building and went to ask and sure enough we were in the wrong spot.  We were not suppose to be in a sweet Lake House we got to be in a regular room, but it was a lot less than the Lake House.

So after we got into the room we are paying for we took the kids to the carnival and we rode rides and looked in the Santa shop and the kids had a real good time.  The weather got cold again so it felt like Christmas.  After that we rode out the seven mile stretch of lights and the kids enjoyed that for the most part.  You know as much as kids can sitting in a van riding 5 mph looking at lights.

So we got four crazy C's back to the room and now they are not tired and they are bouncing off the walls and watching a movie.

Tomorrow is the breakfast with Santa.
