Greetings From Christmas Mountain!

We checked in to Christmas Mountain late last night. We have the cutest villa. There is a great indoor waterpark that the kids are eating up! Who knew we could enjoy water parks in November... IN WISCONSIN! Isabella is a still going through her "terrified" stage. She took one look at the giant frog slide and freaked! Kaitlyn quickly dressed her and took her upstairs to the internet lounge and viewing area. From far away she is quite happy with the water park.

I am SO enjoying this time away. We are in the country and really it feels so nice. I guess I can deny that at heart I am really a country gal! Southern roots tend to do that to you! *Sigh*, I am missing Alabama and Florida today... (you too Christy!)...

We went out and got groceries this morning. Oh how I miss Super Walmart! Chicago doesn't have Super Walmart... just a regular Wally World with a selective row or two of grocery. I felt like I was in familiar territory! Such little things can make me happy sometimes!!!

The only gripe I have is that internet is only available in the main lobby. They have wireless connections for a fee or you can use one of their complimentary kiosks. So my posting may be, well, like it has been lately... hit and miss! Still, there is a wonderful peace in the fact that I am able to rest for a few days. I really needed it!

SO, if I don't get back on in time, Happy Thanksgiving!!!!
