Heading Home for the Holidays

I have learned that packing for 12 days is not easy - especially when it's for Christmas. You can't pack Christmas presents, sweaters and winter coats into one suitcase. So on Christmas Eve, our living room looked like this:

Being with Todd's family is never boring. This year everyone decided that when someone opened a gift, it was necessary to acknowledge the gift with Bon Jovi's signature "overhead clap!"
