It was a quick Christmas break, but the timing was such that we could actually go - all of us - because we were all off from school and work this week. It had to be short, but that's okay - we enjoyed our time with Ba-Ba and Nana greatly, and were glad we could come down for Christmas week.
We said our goodbyes and got in the car for the long drive back. This morning, the temperature dropped quite a bit, and is much cooler up north, obviously. We'll miss the sunshine, at least for a few months anyway.
We drove home, hitting I-95 northward, and going home that traditional Athens route. There was a little more traffic that way than usual, but it's nothing compared to the Atlanta route, which is always such a mess. Madison sat in the back, watching DVDs and playing games as always. She could be heard laughing out loud at certain parts of movies she was listening to with her headphones. We had no ideas which parts these were, but it was funny hearing her crack up. I think it was the latest Monster High movie, but I'm not too sure.
It was a fairly dull day as far as driving for a long time goes. But that isn't necessarily a bad thing - we were glad to have a smooth journey!
We got home early evening, fairly exhausted at the day's travels. We sat up "The Jungle Book," watched that with some popcorn, and then pretty much went to bed. Of course, we were reading from the Princess Leia book, but other than that, it was time to go to bed. Everyone was tired! We had a great time this week, but we were ready for a good night's rest.
