Our vacation is almost over!

Well, we will be coming home tomorrow. We've had the best time! Some of the things we did while we were in New Mexico...

Played in the snow
Went shopping
Walked around Old Town
Rode the Tram up the mountain and had dinner at the top
Zoo and Aquarium
Stayed the night at the Sandia Resort and Casino
Got massages at the Spa... turns out there really is something wrong with my back.
Ate A LOT, gained several pounds!
We were supposed to go on a Ghost Tour Friday night but we canceled because we were exhausted and it was too cold to be walking around outside.

i need more vacations...

So far things have been awesome. We got to New Mexico on Thursday afternoon, Prestley did great on the plane. We drove to Colorado on Friday morning, (about a 6 1/2-7 hour drive) and stayed at my grandparents house. Prestley was awesome on the road trip. Chris went skiing in Vail on Saturday, I was having some back/kidney/who knows what kind of problems so I didn't get to go with him. He had an amazing time though and I'm so glad that he got to go. He says he only fell twice and he was in one piece when we picked him up so I guess he did pretty good. We visited family Saturday night and just hung out. We drove back to New Mexico on Sunday and went to dinner at a nice seafood restaurant named Pelicans in Albuquerque. Today (Monday) we are just trying to relax, watch some movies and do some hot tubing before we start our busy week of running around. **NEWS FLASH** as I was typing this, Prestley just fell and hit her head on the wall while jumping on an air mattress. She has a nasty little bump but is otherwise fine. It just wouldn't be vacation if Prestley didn't hurt herself. :) Anyway, here are some pictures of the trip so far.

Our Charlie Brown Christmas Tree

This post is going to be a little bit about everything.

So I was sick on Thanksgiving but Chris took Prestley to his family's and they had a good time. I stayed home and had cream of chicken soup.

Friday night, we put up our Christmas tree and watched Polar Express. So our Christmas tree is a little sad but Prestley thinks it's awesome! Next year we are going to have to upgrade.

Saturday, we went to Mabank to have Thanksgiving with my family. Did a little Christmas shopping and just hung out.

Sunday, we did a little more shopping, a little more hanging out and then came back home.

We are going on vacation to New Mexico and Colorado on December 4th and will be gone for 11 days. I'm so excited yet so terrified about flying with a toddler and being away from home with her for that long. I bought her some mittens and a hat to keep her warm when we get there and she LOVES wearing them. She wore them around the house and did not want to take them off. Here are some pictures from our weekend.

Thank you, Jennifer O!

For MY birthday, Jennifer made an outfit for Prestley....that's how you know that it really is all about Prestley! And for the record, I'm perfectly OK with that. I love you Prestley Dawn. Sorry I couldn't get a better shot, it's really getting hard to make her stay still long enough to snap a picture.
