We've never left home for Christmas before. But, we were easily tempted by a gracious invite from my brother and sister in-law to join them in "the Hole" this year. Our kids are getting older and a destination Christmas seemed perfect. Time with family, time playing with cousins and all the snow and cold we could wish for. We all had a blast- even in our onesie pajamas. Traditions are hard to change, but this one seemed to work favorably. We appreciate their warm and loving hospitality- it was memorable.
