To celebrate Josh's homecoming, we decided to surprise him with a night at Great Wolf Lodge. It was the perfect mid-December get-away. We were able to spend all of our time at the lodge, which made for wonderful family time. All three kids had a great time, but Abby was definitely the happiest. She absolutely LOVED the water. Andrew immediately remembered how to swim and loved going down the big slides. Kate still doesn't like water in her face, but felt completely at ease with a life jacket on. It was nice to get away for a little while and just focus on each other. We plan on making it a yearly tradition.
Kate, Nana and I were able to go have hot chocolate and cookies with Mrs. Claus. It was very special one-on-one time with Kate. And she was able to tell Mrs. Claus that she wanted a toy circus for Christmas. She promised to pass the word along to Santa!
