Stardate 60984.27 - Merry Christmas!!

Today we all got up around 0730 (Loren slept in a little bit due to a short nap yesterday and a late bedtime) and Loren opened her stocking and a couple of gifts. Other gifts from us had sort of been opened as they arrived, which is fine with her as she is not quite into the whole unwrapping thing yet.

After a nice Christmas morning at the aparment (the first Christmas in my 37 years where I have had Christmas Day in my own place), we piled into the car for the 6.5 hour drive down to Virginia. Loren was very, very good in the car and even took a 2 hour nap. We only stopped once for gas and food and potty, all at the same gas station. We wanted to get lunch somewhere but every fast-food place we could see from the Interstate was closed. We had to settle for Nutigrain bars and potato chips, which just made the gumbo at my Mom's tonight all the more tastier!
