All Vacations Must End…

As much fun as vacation may be, it must come to an end.  My family and I arrived home early this morning (12:30 a.m.) after a fantastic and fun-filled Christmas vacation in Disney.  We ate, drank, rode, laughed, watched parades and shows, met characters, and took in the beauty that is Disney at Christmas.

It is always bittersweet to come home, but this trip home was made easier knowing we were coming home to celebrate Christmas with our extended family.
