If you've agreed in the contract that she will receive 4 weeks annual leave per year - 2 weeks at her choosing and 2 weeks at yours, then you can't very well demand that she takes an extra week and a half unpaid because you feel like taking a long holiday.
Really, I can't believe you're asking the question. You're her employer; it might not be convenient for you right now but you need to pay her.
That's basically how I'm thinking (although DH may have other ideas!).
We can't/would not take her with us. Too expensive and family holidays are for family really...
