So I do have new pictures to post from Spain/Christmas but it is such a daunting task I try to steer clear of my blog so it doesn't throw me accusatory glances. I took 305 pictures while we were there and I put around 100 up on Facebook. I'm going to put much less up here. :)
In case you didn't know, my parents are living in Madrid and we went to visit them for Christmas. Gabe did great on the 16 hours flight there, and I think he would have been good on the flight home but he got an ear infection. Yuck. It really was such a fun trip! We loved it!
