Over the River and Through the Woods…

So I know it’s a little late for this, but I wanted to post a review of our Christmas trip. Every year so far we’ve celebrated with both our families. It’s a lot of driving (especially with a new baby!), but we really love our families and want to be with them during the holidays.

We started off with a trip to Husband’s family’s home. They are great fun. Here’s their traditional Christmas dessert: rice pudding!

The next morning, we woke up to THIS! Lovely, but not that fun to drive in.

Anyway, Anja got rocked in this special cradle before we left. Why’s it special? Husband’s grandma, father, uncle, aunt, himself, his sister and his brother were all rocked in it as infants, and it’s over 100 years old. Pretty cool, eh?

Good thing father-in-law chained that bucket to a tree—someone might wander off with it, you know?

Swerved around this ol’ log in the road. Heavy snow will do that.

Driving on…Horse stores (you can tell how many I’ve ridden by the fact that I have no idea what they’re called) are pretty fancy around here, as you can tell.

Doesn’t this “Inn” just make you want to drive a little faster as you go by? Nothin’ says good marketing like liquor and pizza and lots of junk in your yard.

Next stop…MY HOUSE (where I grew up, that is)!
