For the holidays this year, we braved the Irving-to-Los Lunas drive to Bryon's parents' house. Just hand over my "Mother of the Year Award" for riding in the car a total of TWENTY-FIVE freakin' hours. I think we had to pull over at least 25 times for potty breaks. Good thing we keep a $1.99 IKEA potty in the back seat!
Nothing but the best for our kids!
Unfortunately, a stomach virus joined us on the trip. Shelby puked in Bryon's favorite Mavericks cap. Haley learned to puke in the potty like a big girl. Janice didn't come out of her bedroom for over 24 hours. Monica actually lost weight instead of gaining 5 pounds. Fun times!
The girls did have a great time with their cousins.

I was most excited about giving Janice a quilt her mother had started before she passed away. I pieced the back to look like a garden, which reminded me of her, and my cousin Meredith finished piecing the front that she had started. Meredith also did the binding and quilting, since I was WAY short on time. I just loved how it turned out!
