On the road again...

Today we are leaving for Gramma's house around noonish, so in her honor we are posting our favorite verison of "Over the River, To Grandmother's House".

Over the Charles River and thru the tollbooth,
To Gramma’s house we go;
My Mom knows the way
To drive the Cherokee,
On the highway and traffic, oh!


Over the Connecticut River and thru the tollbooth,
Oh, how the traffic does bog down!I
t makes Mom grumpy,
And makes us late,
As over the state line we gooooo!

Over the Hudson River and thru the tollbooth,
To have a first-rate Christmas;
Oh, can almost see the house,
As we exit the highway!
Hurrah for Christmas vacation!


Over the Mohawk River and thru the woods,
Go-fast Mom go fast I say!
Drive up the driveway
And get me outta this car right away!
For it’s almost Christmas Day!
