The trip went so well, I think there may be a Holiday Road Trip 2011 after all! There were times we'd never thought we'd make it (example: to Memphis, over 400+ miles from Chicago) and times when David made it seem he'd never sleep again (Christmas Eve in the arms of Mimi and Grandpa G) and times when we couldn't get the Corolla through treacherous terrain (Gatlinburg driveway), yet we made it and loved all the special times we had this holiday with friends and family.
Christmas morning at Great Grandmama's house in Jackson, MS with Grandpa G, Mimi, Uncle Matt and Aunt Seale. For David's first Christmas, I think the little guy did pretty well!
Final mileage count = 2,170
