Christmas Break Recap!

Monday, January 4, 2016

Wow! What a whirlwind Christmas break it's been. Byron and I have been lucky enough to have many of our family and friends come visit and stay with us here in NC. Here's just a snippet of the last two weeks . . .

Lazy 5 Ranch - 
I started off Christmas break with trip to the Lazy 5 Ranch with the Zeller's! We had a great time. I even got to feed the giraffe's this time - made my trip! (Somehow I didn't get any pictures of the boys.)

Christmas - 
By the time Christmas rolled around we had a full house! Byron's whole family came and we had a great time celebrating with everyone. Christmas Eve we all went to church then drove around Sunset Hills for their annual Lighted Christmas Balls. A great way to get into the Christmas mood!

On Christmas morning there were so many people here we had to do two rounds of opening presents - we all started to lose focus in the morning.  Such a bad problem to have. :)

Batting Cages - 
After some of B's family left, it was time for my family! My mom, dad and brothers came down and we had another Christmas - dinner, presents and all! We took my  brothers and nephews to the batting cages as part of their Christmas presents. I HIGHLY recommend going! It was great for our 3 y/o nephew all the way up to their grandpa! I'm hoping B and I can go back for a date night - I think I missed my calling.

Ringing in the New Year - 
We had a fabulous NYE with our friends in Charlotte! Couldn't have asked for a better crew to be with at midnight! We went to "Howl at the Moon," a dueling piano bar where we danced, sang, danced and sang some more!

We ended our NYE celebrations with a trip to Dame's Chicken & Waffles in Greensboro. If you're ever in the area you have to go. This will definitely be our new go-to place to take out-of-town guests. What amazing food!

I've been blessed enough to have two full weeks off of work - life of a teacher! Tomorrow = back to the daily grind. I'm well-reseted and ready to see my kiddos and co-workers/friends at school!
