We're Home, We're Exhausted

Traveling is truly a lot of work. No matter how easy you try to make it, it just isn't. Plain and simple. The flight from here to my hometown is about 1 hour. That's it. But, from the time we leave home to the time we get there, it's 5 hours. You can drive it in 7. So, I ask, is it really worth it fly? The only plus to flying is that it's much more leisurely and you don't have to worry about road conditions. The cost is about the same for two of us to fly as it is in gas. Once we have to start paying for Monkey's plane ticket, too, I'm sure we'll be driving it much more often. Plus, he won't have to stare at the back of the seat for hours on end. His car seat can be turned frontwards in less than 2 months! Woo hoo!

On an entirely different note, in fact, so different it should be on a different blog post, Christmas is just around the corner. 1 week away, almost exactly. Kyle's dad is coming on Sunday for a few days, we're really happy that he can make it. We didn't find out until last week and we really are happy that he can come. It will be a really small, leisurely Christmas and we're very excited about it. We're hoping to go get a Christmas tree this afternoon, but we're waiting for a call back about whether we can go cut some from some friends from our church. If not, we're probably going to go buy one tomorrow. I'm excited to get the house ready for company and feeling much more Christmasy. I have a lot to do, but it will be fun.

Traveling with a baby is no fun. Looks like you survived. Good job.
