I started looking on line and calling a travel agent and lo and behold a plan started coming into place. A beautiful plan, now only if the kids would like it.
I asked all the boys if instead of doing presents we would take a family vacation, a cruise! They all said ABSOLUTELY, except Austin wanted these $26.00 headphones! So plans were made and I have to tell you, it was so nice not doing ANY presents for the kids....ok Ava got a few Barbies, smiles abound on Christmas day just watching Ava opening her Barbies that the boys gave her.
Royal Caribbean, Mariner of the Seas
