Ho Ho Ho

We have returned from our holiday travels.  It is always a whirlwind event but we managed to spend a lot of time with everyone and enjoy the time.
Shane went to Kristen and Gyeong's for the week, I just don't think his old bones can handle the constant walking and traveling.  It is hard on the others and they are used to it.  But we gave him lots of Christmas love before leaving.  Hopefully, they can teach him how to lay on a bed..he still hasnt' figured that out yet.
 But Shiloh takes advantage of his ineptitude and uses the part he isn't.
Our first stop is Charlotte to be with Jason's family.  Since Thanksgiving, there has been a new addition.  Finnagin was born right after Thanksgiving.
 Grandpa spends some time with him
One night Jason made pizzas
Dante positioned himself expertly so he could watch the action from the comfort of the couch.
Cali guards the door..from the couch
Dana and Shiloh figure if cookies are to be had..they will come to them.

The old lady..such a sweet girl
 We spent Christmas morning with his family.  His mother was with us the whole time
  
We packed up the Beastie and drove to my parents house in Franklin County.  After a few days of no fence and leash walking only..Cali was ready for the mini horse paddock!
 Shiloh loves being a Grandma's house!
We opened presents and had dinner with my parents on Christmas night. The next day we went to my sister's house to see other family members. 
My nephew Boone learns Uncle Jason is definitely useful
 
 A few days later, Boone comes over and Jason shows him his mad Lego skills.
 It was really cold the whole time but we managed to spend a little time outside with Boone.
All in all it was a great trip. Definitely tiring..Jason and Cali were definitely tuckered out
We were glad to be home and I was especially glad for my fenced backyard.  Of course, now i have a cold but that means I get to spend the weekend snuggling with my furry kids. I hope everyone had a great holiday and Happy New Year!!!
