Operation: Home for the Holidays (OHH)

I am going to try something new with my blog (besides my new layout).  

I am going to attempt to chronicle my Christmas vacation (OHH) from start to finish.  Why would I do that you ask?  BECAUSE IT WILL BE AWESOME!  Whoo.  Sorry about that.  Didn't mean to yell.

Anyways, the reason I want to document it is so that everyone can watch ( as HP, The Dude and I travel to Canada (and we can enjoy the pictures and my witty posts for years to come).

It is going to be a trip (pun intended).

The kids have never been North.  The Dude has been to the Caymans (little punk ass, I haven't even been there) and keeps telling HP everything there is to know about urrr-planes (that is how he pronounces it).  And HP wakes up every morning, points to the jammies she is wearing and asks "can I bring these to Gramma D's?".  I think she is worried she will forget something.  Silly girl.

I haven't been home in 7 years.  Not for lack of trying, I just had to unfortunate luck of getting the runaround from the Immigration & Naturalization service.  After years of filling out forms, getting physicals and fingerprinting and mucho deniro (I know ZERO Spanish, so if I spelled this wrong, my bad) being spent, I am now legally able to cross the border!  Whoot-whoot!

So.  The kids and I will be spending 10 days in the bustling town of Saskatoon!

I will do my best to post pictures and stories about our big adventure.  It should be fun! :)

I hope you can join us as we commence OHH!

YEA!!!!!!!! Keep us in the loop! Can't wait to hear about your trip... especially Christmas morning when your kids wake up and Christmas is exactly like you remember it as a kiddo :)

I just read the post about the Dude turning 5... I'm totally teary! Dang it! Since I'm already in the mood, I may take you up on your idea and search for some Real World or Iron Man - especially the one they did on the dad that pulled/pushed his son the entire way... although I don't know that it will be the same without you next to me from the comfort of the orange couch :)

Love you girl! And love reading about your family - can't believe you've been a mom for five years - amazing!
