Oh, we got so lucky to have a great flight to Ohio. The snow covered every inch of land and flying over the snow was breathtaking. I love going to Ohio when there is snow, I think the thoughts of how cold it is leaves my mind then! The kids were so excited to get to play in it and go sledding and make snow angels. This was going to be Ivan’s first time in the snow!
We got in on Sunday the 19th just before dinner. My cousin Kendra and her daughter Natalia came for dinner and to hang out. It was great seeing Natalia whom we would not see on Christmas. Natalia got to open her presents from my mom. Ivan was enthralled with all of my brothers old car ornaments on the tree downstairs. He got most of them down and was playing with them all night. He was one happy camper!
Tuesday we did not do much during the day but let the kids catch up on much needed sleep. That night we went to Worthington Square Mall and got the kids photos with Santa. Elle was really excited, so cute! Ivan could have cared less, he was very interested in the holiday decor and the lighted up animals next to Santa. We then went to dinner at non other than Bob Evans! YUMMY!
Wednesday was the day Lee’s granddaughter came to open presents, have dinner and go to the Columbus Zoo for Lights. We had so much fun, we even got to open a couple presents as well, lucky us. The temperature was freezing and so the kids were completely bundled up. Ivan really could not move any part of him, HAHA. Total ‘Christmas Story’ moment!
