A Florida Christmas

This Christmas was a Kreider Christmas, which means Florida!  I hate that my parents live so far away, but I love that when I go to visit them that it's in Florida.  The weather this year was perfect!

Kristopher and I went a few days before anyone else got there and got to do a few fun things with just our little family.  We took Colin to Animal Kingdom and Sea World.  I knew he would love both because of his love for animals.  It was so fun to see how excited he was to see everything.  He has a new found love of sea life.  He was in to whales before we went, but ever since we have been home he always talks about whales, dolphins, penguins, fishes, turtles, ect.  He really enjoyed seeing the killer whales and dolphins "splash in the water".  I have a feeling we will be returning there next time we visit my parents.

All my siblings and my Grandmother came in time for Christmas.  We all went out to eat on Christmas Eve.  It was so much fun to start doing all the fun little Christmas Eve things with Colin and my niece Blair.  I love that they are so close in age.  It was fun to see them get into Santa this year.  I hadn't seen my niece Izzy for almost 2 years and it was so fun to get to hang out with her.  I can't believe how old she is getting, she is growing up way too fast!  We all had so much fun getting to hang out with each other.  We hadn't all been together for two years.  I hate not living close to my siblings.  Kristopher and I have so much fun with them and we hope one day to live close by to them.  One highlight(s) of my trip was seeing my niece Blair fall in love with David.  She was borderline obsessed with him.  Wherever David was, Blair was not far behind.  She loved to hold him and rub his little head, all while saying "oh baby, oh baby, poor baby".  It was one of the sweetest things!  We did so many things and had such a great time.  I can't wait to go back!
