My Christmas Adventures

Holy Canoli Batman!! Is it the end of the day already? End of the weekend? I can't believe it, only a few more days before we leave for our holiday adventure. My DSL was down the other day, and I've spent all weekend getting last minute things done for our trip.

I know I've hinted at this wonderful trip we're taking. I suppose it's time to share...are you ready?? Feast your eyes on where the Grandy family is spending Christmas!!

Palm Trees...Pools...Beaches...Beautiful Weather...Santa's sending us to Vallarta Palace in Nuevo Vallarta (just outside of Puerto Vallarta).

Not jealous enough?? Take a look at this pic!

Last year for Christmas we hosted all families and had almost 20 people in our home. At the end of the night we jokingly asked ourselves if there was a place we could go this year and just get away (not really recognizing we could). Then our dear friends told us where they were going, round about September. I didn't think the Hubby would want to go because he always says he won't go where he can't drink the water...always trying to get my goat that guy.

Well...low and behold, back in October he agreed we could go. We all got our passports and had the trip paid for by November. We leave WEDNESDAY!!! We're going to be in Mexico from 12/19 thru 12/26/07. I can't wait!!!!!

Ty is counting the hours, our friends are all set (they also have just one son close to Ty's age) and we are off to our all inclusive resort. Talk about working on that work/life balance thing!!

That being said, I am going to try and pre-write some posts, so you won't have to go SO LONG without me. I know it sounds weird, but I'm certain you all know I'll be coming back with PLENTY of blog stories too. :)

Now, I just have to make sure my son remembers how to say, "Donde esta el bano?" and we'll be alright. When in always have to know where the potty is.

Mary, you are a lucky woman!! I would love to leave all the holiday bustle behind and go soak up some rays. I hope you have a relaxing and wonderful time.

Merry Christmas to you and yours, and I would like to see some pictures when you get back of you in your bikini!

TAKE ME WITH YOU! 16 inches of snow just fell here in 3 days.....and I'm drooling over your photos.

Hope you all have a fabulous trip and take lots of pics!!

Grandy said...

Ladies...Wait til you see tomorrow's post about my new camera!!

Mrs. G~ Bikini?

Sandy~ 16 inches?? You're not thinking 16 and it's actually 8, are you?? I know we try to mentally compensate. ;)

Enjoy your vacation! That looks like the perfect vacation spot to me!

(hmmm, think I can get away with going camping for Christmas?)

Michele Tune said...

Wow, Grandy, that's great! I know you've earned this vacation... so ENJOY it!

Like the others, I can't wait to see those photos when you get back :-)

Good Morning Grandy,
Thanks for stopping by. I just finished putting up a new post after a very busy weekend. I can't believe you are going to Mexico for Christmas. That is just awesome. I know you will have a wonderful time. I do hope you will take lots of pictures and share them with us when you get back. Are you taking your computer with you? Let me now wish you and yours a "MERRY CHRISTMAS". Sure wish I could go somewhere out of Arkansas for Christmas. Well, take care my friend and have a great Monday. May God Bless You and Yours.

Wow! What a spectacular holiday plan. I hope you're leaving bread crumbs (or reindeer food?) so Santa can find you at this fabulous spot. You're sure to return with lovely memories, so we'll be waiting for snapshots and stories galore.
Hugs and blessings,

Grandy said...

Thank you everyone, for your wishes and your will only help me enjoy the trip more knowing this truly is a cool thing. :)

Oh, I hope I didn't miss you before your grandy departure. I know you'll have a blast. I'll be thinking about you if I find myself all hot and sweaty in stirrups...I'll envision myself all hot and sweaty in Mexico, drinking it up with Grandy. ;-)

Hasta la vista, chica!

Grandy said...

Oh Dee...haven't left yet...have a few more hours to go.

Please take care of you while I'm gone for a week!!

Yo tengo muchas margaritas para usted. ;)
