We made it to Florida! We also had a chance to celebrate an early Christmas with Jordan and Cameron’s Poppy and Grandma (aka my in-laws)! They had a ball opening gifts. We also got to drive long distances with the kids in the van — for the first time we had them sitting in different rows with two separate DVD players.

It changed EVERYTHING. Our drive was relatively peaceful… happy and enjoyable. I think we will travel this way from now on. It was too nice. No fighting and relatively few outburst from either kid.

I did figure out an additional way to help Jordan keep up with her toys without them all falling to her left side and she can’t reach it. It’s a soft tray that attaches with a belt behind her so it doesn’t fall down. She was able to play with smaller toys and eat food without losing stuff. I highly recommend it!!

Today we enjoyed a little time in my parents’ pool (it was freezing cold) and riding bikes. Jordan was exhausted but we did pull the bike arm out for a little while. Not long enough for her to be willing to let me leave and find a camera. She was exhausted by the end of the day and even fell asleep on the floor. Hopefully she’ll get a good night’s sleep so we can have a really fun day tomorrow!

Awesome! You guys have a fantastic time and a very merry Christmas. Will you be spending Jordan’s big girl birthday there, too?

Merry Christmas to you too friend. We plan to celebrate Jordan’s birthday at Disney World one day early – complete with a trip to the Bibbidy Bobbidy Boutique for princess hair and a dinner at a nearby hotel for a Cinderella dinner. Cameron will want to puke but he’ll have to deal! ;-)

That picture is awesome with Jordan showing off her gift.
Her face is always so full of expression!

Can’t wait to see more!!
