Hello 2011!

I was a little behind at the end of 2010 to post all our Christmas fun and pre-New Year celebrations, but better late than never! Maybe one of my new year resolutions should be to do more prompt blogging!

This past Christmas season I was reminded more than ever how blessed we are to have such wonderful family and friends that surround us. We traveled many miles to see everyone, but had such a wonderful time. Many special memories were made and I tried to catch as many as possible on film.

We started the trip with a visit to see my childhood care provider and her husband who are amazing people. We had a fabulous lunch with them and then it was off to see my grandmother, the kid's great grandmother, and my aunt and cousins. It was great to see my kids interacting so well with my grandmother.

We also saw my cousin Kim and Livy, the girls were so darling together as usual!

We headed up to Chico to see the rest of my family. Our Chico family is always so welcoming and show us a great time. Alex LOVES his big cousins and played non stop the entire time we were there. We got some great new family photos and had a wonderful Christmas Eve and Christmas morning.

Christmas morning the kids were so excited to see what Santa brought them. This was the first year Amelia was really into Christmas and she was ecstatic that Santa brought her a princess bike. Alex got a wand and Easy Bake oven he wanted, as well as a sweet Spiderman costume.

Christmas day we went on to Paul's parents house and enjoyed more good cheer, food and yes, our kids got even more presents. We had just enough time to come home and relax for a day before we went onto our annual trip to Cambria! But those photos to come soon....we'll see how I do with my new year's resolution!
