Home For The Holiday Bucket List

Fort Worth, TX is home for us. Even though we have enjoyed our time here in Georgia, it is still hard to be away from home at times. H will cry to go to Grandma's or Nana's house sometimes. We have missed a couple births, a marriage, and a death in the family. By the time Christmas rolls around it will have been 16 months since we have all been home together. We are so excited to be going home for Christmas. We talk about it most every day now. We are going to stay in the hotel on base but we are going to write to Santa to bring H's gifts to Nana's house on Christmas morning. We have even made a bucket list for our time back home.

  • Of course visiting our family and friends is number 1 for our time back home. We have a brand new baby to meet! 
  • My dad died a while back and I wasn't able to make it home. He is at the National Cemetary in Dallas, so we plan to make by there.
  • We miss our good Tex-mex. So its a must to go to our favorite restaurant Cancun and get some enchiladas gringas.
  • Taco Cabana breakfast tacos, need I say more? 
  • Some good donuts. Can you believe GA doesnt have good donuts? We have Dunkin Donuts and Krispy Creme. We crave our small family owned and worked dads in the back making the dough with mom, kids are checking people out in the front type of donut shop. Those are good donuts, and that is not something I thought I would miss.
  • We also want to take H to the Fort Worth Zoo. Fort Worth Zoo is probably the best in the country (according to us). This last one is weather and time permitting only.
I wish we were going to have more time to do more while we are there but I am trying to save some PTO to go back for H's birthday.

Anyone else traveling home for the holidays?

Anyone go on special trips for Christmas? 

We are thinking about going to our favorite mountain town next Christmas to have a white Christmas.
