• ~Psalm 46:4-5~

    There is a river whose streams make glad the city of God, the holy dwelling places of the Most High. God is in the midst of her, she will not be moved; God will help her when morning dawns.

Notes on Holiday Traveling

Our Christmas traveling craziness has begun. And since I am an overachiever among overachievers, I decided not only to visit all of our families this year, but also to schedule visits with friends. And here are a few tips I’ve picked up that may help you with your own holiday traveling.

Tip #1~ When staying with family, make sure you are the first to arrive at the house where you will be staying. This ensures that you get to stay in the best room. And staying in the best room means that Mommy won’t be throwing a temper tantrum the night before you leave.

Tip #2~ Take advantage of free babysitting while you’re on the road. Everyone benefits! Grandparents want to spend time with the little one and you need a break after that long trip.

Tip #3~ When scheduling a visit with that particular couple who seems to be booked three months in advance, try a nice Sunday breakfast. One of my dearest friends from childhood seems to always have a busy schedule. We’ve started a little tradition of having breakfast before church on the weekends when I’m in town. It’s been so much fun!

Tip #4~ Remember the magic of Christmas and don’t let silly things spoil your memory making time. When you get frustrated during your trip, which always happens, keep in mind that funny stories are often born from frustration.

Merry Christmas to all! Drive safe now, ya hear?
