Merry Christmas everyone!
We hope you all had a great Christmas holiday.
Our Christmas was great - we had a fantastic time alternating between the pool and the beach. Look below for our 2004 Christmas photo taken at the beach (that's the back of our trailer with bikes you see).
Santa was able to find our trailer and since we don't have a chimney he used his special 'Santa Key' and entered through the door. He left both Tomas & Victoria each a Thomas the Tank Engine trains. Tomas received Henry the big green express engine while Victoria received Lady of the magical railroad. (Well, Toria wanted a phone but she already has 2 (3 if she can find our cell phone) so Santa formed plan B and found she also wanted 'her' train.
Toria also received her first bike - a purple 2-wheeler with training wheels and streamers! Tomas also received a Rescue Helicopter & a dragon (with chains - he says I must add that the dragon has chains - like the dragon on Shrek).
We enjoyed a buffet Christmas dinner & key lime margarita with key lime pie at the Lazy Lizard pub (the family-friendly pub at the campground).
In other news - we had a good time in the Florida Keys. We spent a couple of days in Key West visiting Ernest Hemingways house, climbing 88 steps up (& down) the lighthouse and visiting the southernmost point in the continental US (see photo below). I know my last blog promised more photos but the rest of our Florida keys time was quite hectic. We had to ensure that we relaxed by the pool and the children (aka 'fish') spent their required 4 hours/day in the pool so besides the 2 in this blog I don't have any other photos added yet but I hope to before the New Year.
We're leaving tomorrow (Dec. 27) for Naples. We plan to spend New Year's in Sarasota, Fl before heading to Walt Disney World for January 3.
