~A Merry Christmas Road Trip~

We had a joyful Christmas celebration with our family, yesterday, the 23rd. Yes, it was very joyful despite the impression Mr Man, Drewby, gives in the photo, above. I laugh at this photograph every time I see it. Gabi is trying to escape, Drew doesn't want any part of this photo-op, Xanti, humoring her G'ma & G'pa, is hanging on for dear life and Noah is oblivious of all the drama going on around him!
We're continuing our celebration of this most wonderful time of the year with a year end road trip.
We look forward to seeing
Biltmore Estate, in North Carolina, all done up for Christmas. This will be our first visit to this beautiful estate.
Our plans also include two nights at a brand new hotel, in Tennessee. Construction of The Inn at Christmas Place, was completed during Summer 2007. The hotel is decorated, throughout, for Christmas. Being the Christmas decorating fanatics we are, I know we will enjoy our stay there.
Our trip begins early Christmas Day. We plan to drive to Paducah Kentucky where we will stay overnight, continuing our journey to eastern Tennessee, early the 26th.
We are finishing the week in Asheville, North Carolina and will begin our return trip Saturday, hoping to arrive home, December 30 (Sunday).
I'll have the cameras and a notebook, from start to finish! Look for a post about our wonderful Christmas road trip, early next week. Until then, Merry Christmas!
