Awesomesauce Christmas Plans

We found out a few weeks ago that my parents were planning a pretty nice Christmas "getaway" for our immediate family.  At one time, we were talking about going to the North Georgia mountains for Christmas, but unfortunately, my grandmother isn't in the best shape healthwise so we opted for something a little closer to home -- the beach!

I love our beaches!
They recently put down the deposit on a lovely beach house about three miles from Highway 59 in Gulf Shores!  And not only that, we have the beach house for the entire month of December.  How crazy is that?!

Our criteria included that the property had to be dog-friendly (since we have three pooches in between us all!) and enough room to fit at least 8 people comfortably at one time.  We'll all be there together around Christmastime, but at any other point in the month, we'll be free to come and go as we please and as we have the time available to us.

The house has 4 bedrooms (king-sized beds in two rooms, one queen in another room, and 2 queens in the last room) so it can sleep up to 14 people, with 3 1/2 bathrooms.  It's not a beachfront property, but it is right on the water.  But not like that really matters for the middle of December anyway!

The house wasn't our first choice (see: http://www.meyerre.com/house/Onos_Latitude_Adjustment, talk about a dream house!!) but it's going to be a LOT of fun.  I'm really excited about inviting friends over and pretending for a month that we're ritzy enough to own a beach house ;)
