A special day with my love ;)

Last Saturday, Doug and I got our annual away time with just the two of us.  Dairy One's Christmas Party was in the evening, so Doug's Mom and Dad took the kids and dogs for us and we headed to Syracuse in the morning.  For the past three years we have been with Dairy One, we decided to make a full day of this trip.  It's tough to get Christmas shopping done when you have the girls with you, so this was our perfect chance!  We always start off with lunch at Olive Garden with their soup, salad and breadsticks.  Then we head to Destiny USA and hit up the Disney Store and a few other stores.  Christmas shopping was finished minus their stockings before we went shopping and usually we can accomplish their stockings no problem.  This year everything seemed a lot more expensive.  We ended up getting two things from the mall, did a bunch of window shopping, and then opted for another store.  We stopped at Starbucks on the way out of Syracuse and then headed for Ithaca.  We finished up our shopping at Target.  After driving home last year after the Christmas Party, we decided to spend the night this year.  So once we had finished the last of the shopping, we headed to the hotel to get dressed.  We had a blast at the party as usual.  The music is always a little loud, but the food and company is amazing!  The head boss (who is 3 up on the chain from Doug's boss) and his wife met us at the door, gave us a big hug and asked how things are going.  They said they have been praying for us and the house, the traveling, everything....praying for God's will.  I'm so grateful that Doug works for a company that he is prayed for.  I think that is pretty cool!  We topped our night off with a relaxing night at the hotel.  I'm so thankful for the time we had.  It made for a rougher week this week, seems to be the way that works, but it was well worth it!  I can't wait for next year! ;)
