Christmas in Florida!

We had a wonderful time in Florida over Christmas break. It was great to get back to the sunshine and the warm weather for a week. We stayed very busy back home, like we normally do when we visit. Before Christmas we shopped and shopped and shopped. It was alot of fun and we got some great deals at the outlet malls. Tuesday night, we had a midnight (yes you read right) barbeque in the front yard at my parents house to enjoy the lights they put up, it was very different but alot of fun, and also that night we did our normal baskball time, it wouldn't be the same if we went home and didn't do that!
Christmas day was alot of fun. We spent the morning at my family's house doing our normal Christmas routine. Lunch was spent at Grandma Klingensmith's house, with a house full of people as normal. It was alot of fun catching up with all of my cousins and hearing about what they are up to these days. Then off to Grandma Koshko's for round two of Christmas dinner. I can't believe how fast my second cousins are growing up on that side of the family, it made me feel just a little old, hah. By the time we got back to my parents house I was wiped! But it was alot of fun.
Friday we had a back yard fire and invited our friends and family to stop in and see us while we were home. It was a great time of fellowship and it was nice to catch up with everyone.
Saturday was one of my favorite days, BEACH DAY! I was looking forward to this for weeks and weeks and the day was beautiful. My Grandparents took us out to breakfast to start the day out and then we were off to Sanibel and Captiva. We drove around Captiva, and if you ever get to go there you should. It is a really neat and out of the way vacation spot that I would reccomend to anyone. Then we crashed at the time share my parents own on Sanibel beach and just took a nap on the sand and listened to the waves. It was so relaxing. We saw a Mom and Baby dolphin that day, I never go to Sanibel without seeing a dolphin, they like it out there and I don't blame them!
Saturday night called for leftovers at Grandma Klingensmith's and once again got to visit with relatives! We spent the night there that night and went to church with them that day.
Sunday was a day to relax, and we enjoyed the last few hours until we left Monday morning. Hope you all had a great Christmas, I can't wait to hear about it!
