Christmas 2016 with The Geiger’s… And the Patey’s

Christmas 2016 was a special holiday. Our little family of 3 doesn’t have any family locally so we travel to visit as often as we can. We have been planning our Christmas trip since summer so it was something to look forward to during a very stressful year we have had. I was most excited for Gentry to be able to finally play with his cousins. The last time they saw each other, Gent was much too old and still didn’t quite understand the concept of playing with cousins. But this year was different.

When I was preparing for this trip, I had one thing I was concerned with…. Not being prepared for SNOW clothing wise. We live in Arizona which we wear sandals during the winter so…….. I knew that wouldn’t work. I spent a month or so before the trip at various thrift stores on the hunt for snow gear particularly for Gentry.

snow? or not to snow? that is the question…

Well sadly, no snow was present once we got settled into the Patey residence. There was a bit of ice (but nothing crazy) which melted the next day…. So my unpreparedness that I thought I tackled…. ended up biting me in the butt. ha. ๐Ÿ™‚
