Christmas Stay-cation

Northpark Mall Christmas exhibit

Merry Christmas from The Wandering Miss! I hope everyone is having a cheerful Holiday Season and staying healthy and safe every day. My family and I are not traveling for the holidays. We are just going to spend Christmas with my husband’s family this year. Our plan for a Christmas vacation to the Philippines has been set aside for now. Strict travel restrictions are still in effect at airports and destinations require two weeks of quarantine upon arrival. We don’t want to be into that hassle.

Though we missed your family back home, we just have to endure this. We want everyone to be safe, too. Hopefully, the Covid-19 vaccine will be available soon.

For now, we just have to do stay-cation. Driving in and around Dallas is fun, too. In fact, we enjoyed looking at Christmas exhibits at Northpark Mall. We were amazed how intricate and beautiful each display was. It was worth the time loitering around Nortpark Mall.

Not Traveling Far For the Holidays

Who’s excited for Christmas? I am. My household is super excited.  My darling daughter has already created her wishlist. She had a few expensive ones on there but I know she will appreciate what Santa would bring her on Christmas Day.

We are not traveling very far for the Holidays this year.  We are spending Christmas with my in-laws in Tyler. Our travel plans are still on, though.  We are thinking of vacationing next year for our 10th wedding anniversary to the Philippines.  Hopefully on Christmas Break.  As you know, making travel arrangements when you have a student is quite difficult because we need to consider the number of days the school is off. Normally, the school’s maximum break time is two weeks during the Holidays-which is nice, I think.

Anyway, I hope you all have a wonderful Holidays with your loved ones. And be safe in traveling especially in the snow.
