Georgia recap…

The day after Christmas, we loaded up our van (so thankful for the minivan), and headed north.  It still is crazy to me to think that we went from shorts and sandals to cold…jackets, hats, socks and shoes (which are foreign to our boys).  They were really, really excited to make the trip and did great on the drive up.  We made a quick stop in Orlando and got to visit with Brunertown for a minute.  Aunt Sarah gave the boys these awesome hats, which they loved: (thanks Sarah!)DSC_0445 DSC_0448We all loved and cherished the time we had with family.  The boys played hard and enjoyed being with grandparents, cousins, Aunts, and Uncles throughout the week and a half we were there:
