Friday afternoon we drove up to the Poconos. Jacob had a few days off so thought it would be fun to see some new scenery. As you know, we originally thought we would go up to Pennsylvania so Brian could see the Army-Navy game on Saturday in Philadelphia. You all know our sad story of the lost tickets. Since we had the place reserved, we decided to use it. It was an 8-hour drove up from Julia's. (took longer because we had to go a round about way to turn in our rental car) Anyway, the place turned to be nice and we had a good time with some exceptions. It seemed that someone was sick almost every day. We had picked up a stomach bug. But in spite of that we had a relaxing few days. It was ccccccold up there--down in the teens at night and in the 20's during the day. We drove back on Tuesday. So far I am the only one not to come down sick. I am keeping my fingers crossed.

I spent the day decorating for Christmas. It was different to see my decorations in new places. I got rid of some of my decorations before we moved and now I wish I had them back. I actually have more places to put things in this house than I did before.
