Weekend Getaway

This weekend we went with the Newhouse family to Destin. We stayed in a Bungalow in SanDestin and the house had a 6-seater golf cart that we were able to use. We rode back and forth to Baytowne Wharf several times on it to eat or just to play!

This was us at PF Chang's on Friday night. Our hostess asked if we had all just had family pictures taken since we were all dressed alike! haha! None of us planned on wearing the same color!

During the winter months, Baytown Wharf has an ice skating rink. I haven't been ice skating since I was very small and was very nervous I would break a bone, but Joy convinced me that I should give it a try. Despite a minor altercation with the ice skating attendant, it was a lot of fun...even though I looked pretty stupid and VERY uncomfortable on the ice! Wesley videoed it, but I think I should go ahead and delete the video evidence. I didn't look as much like a figure skater as I would have hoped!

We ended the vacation by all going to see a 3D movie. It was mine and Wesley's first 3D show, and we were very impressed! We saw The adventures of Tin Tin. It was really cute....especially in 3D!

Pack Family Christmas and New Years Eve

We spent Christmas Day and the day after at Wesley's parents house in Lincoln, AL. His parents made seafood gumbo and jambalaya this year to get away from the traditional holiday foods. We all enjoyed the "Cajun Christmas" as his mom called it! And of course we had plenty of sweet treats for dessert! It was great getting to be with so many people in his family at once. Here are a few pics of our Christmas with them:

Nanny's husband, Jim, got everyone these puzzles that are difficult to figure out! We all spent some time on Sunday afternoon playing with them!

This weekend has been the perfect ending to a great year! We celebrated Wesley's birthday on Friday. He wanted to grill out at home and watch a movie for his birthday. It was so nice to have a yummy steak dinner and just be able to relax at home. On Saturday I got to meet Alisa and Lindsay for lunch in Rosemary Beach since they were both down for New Years, and then I met Wesley, Nick, Joy, and Jillian at the beach and we sat with our toes in the sand until the sunset. Then we met back over at their house for homemade pizzas and Auburn football. Wesley and I were shocked that we were actually awake to watch the PC Beach Ball drop on TV at midnight!

It's hard to believe that 2011 has come to a close! I am so excited about this year though, and I know that The Lord has a perfect plan for our future! I just can't wait to see how His plan unfolds!
