So Christmas went good. Our girls woke us up at 5:50am to open presents, so we drug ourselves out of bed and bundled up to go open gifts. Little did we know that the girls had been waiting for an hour already to wake us up. Anyway, we were very excited because our big gift to the girls this year is a trip to Disneyland in California. I created some big tickets that had the Disney princesses on them and said "one ticket to Disneyland". When they opened them, we got the reaction from two of them we expected, but our middle daughter Sydney was a surprise. She automatically started bawling and saying "I don't want to go" over and over. Ooops. Not sure what she thought Disneyland is, but as a four year old, who knows. Anyway, it took Chrissy 4 hours to convince her to want to go on the trip, now she is the most excited of the three.
So, tomorrow we load up the van and head west. But there is still something about packing up the vehicle with the family on a trek to a theme park that still reminds me of National Lampoon's Vacation. Can't wait to get there, and I'll make sure to park in the furthest spot from the entrance to make sure we're the first ones out. Pray for the Decker vacation.
