(Lola, I still need to go to the post office and pick yours up, as it arrived when we were out of town!) Santa was extra nice to me this year and brought me a Nook Color *squee*, but best of all my twin sister sent me a One Ring. Yes, that ring! It's even got the elvish inscription on it, it's beautiful! ♥ ♥ ♥ I had to work part of Christmas day but then got to Scype with my sister from across the miles. Not the same as being together but pretty darn nice. Then the day after Christmas we went to a place called Castaway Bay, an indoor water park. Great fun for the kids...I never can understand how they don't get chilly, because I was freezing my arse off except when we were in the hot tub. I enjoy water rides a bit more when it's 90 degrees and they're outside in the summer sun. All three of my children swim like fishes though so they were thrilled...my son wanted to spend the entire time in the wave pool, down here (it's turned off in the picture though).
And another view of the play area...they've also got a zip coaster and a few body slides, plus a pool for playing water basketball and the giant hot tub. You can actually go outside in the hot tub too--it's about 30 degrees Fahrenheit here so that makes it interesting.
Just got home today. I hope everyone's holidays were/are fantastic. We go this weekend to celebrate with my husband's side of the family and then my mini-vacation from work is over. BTW I've almost completely decided not to apply for the other job. Many of you told me to go with my gut, and this never really lit a fire under me so I think that's telling me to pass. My love to you all! :-)
