Christmas Ornament Countdown 2020: 1 Day Until Christmas

I'm not much of a world traveler really. Ask me to go anywhere in the great U.S. of A., and I could be ready in about 10 minutes. But ask me to venture around the world, and I'm more of a take it or leave it kind of girl. Now, Robby is completely different in that aspect-he is ready to go no matter how far or how near at anytime at all.

Reagan was not even one yet when we left her with Grannymom and Nonna. We didn't just go to the next state, but we explored Germany, Austria, Switzerland, and Lichtenstein. Who knew that Lichtenstein was even a country? I didn't until May of 2006. Oh, and I was 8 weeks pregnant with Anderson during all of this gallivanting around the globe as well.

On of our stops on that trip was to tour the Neuschwanstein Castle in Germany. Walt Disney apparently based Sleeping Beauty's castle along with Cinderella's castle off of the Neuschwanstein. The castle was grandiose and pretty amazing. 

Now, let's go to the West coast and talk about Sleeping Beauty's castle for a minute-when you walk up to it you are completely underwhelmed. Not so with the real castle. By the time Walt build Cinderella's castle, he had probably studied up on Neuschwanstein a little bit more. 

Right now our pictures aren't working on the blog from that trip. Let me just remind you of what we looked like: we were young (that was 14 years ago), skinny (that was 5 kids ago) and well rested (that was when we just had one child-there are 6 now.)
