There's not much else in word of airports around there, all over 100 miles away, so it really isn't a feasible place. If that was ever a possibility, I probably could work out some sort of group rate/package deal for us here at MMC.

Oh yeah, and JP won 3rd place in the Pinewood Derby yesterday.

Good night for the third time tonight.
looks like a fun place!
Should start a new section somewhere on here where everyone can post about the Christmas theme attractions near where they live. It would be great to get to explore what is out there.

O gosh another weekend has come and gone! Well brandi and I are looking forward to getting back into a routine our last 60 or so days here...she has no more breaks until the last day of school and I don't have any more either. So it's a straight 5 day work week for the next 8 weeks! We are so looking forward to our move. And hopefully this will be my last assignment,of course I thought Valdosta would be too. THe weather this weekend was weird it hailed so much over the weekend ice stayed in our yard for hours. today we got up to 85F and it was HUMID it felt like mid summer but cities 50 miles north where the cold front was as 50F ! right now we are cooling off at 65F but wea re heading down to the upper 30's the next few nights so it's possible to see one or two more frosts this season. OKay its time for us and our pups to hit the hay. Have a great Monday everyone!!!

Aw, The Night They Saved Christmas...my kids watched it all the time!
I loved it even though it was super corny- it was so...so, well Christmasy!

I still have the VHS, but don't have a VCR set up anymore.
