Merry Christmas!

So it's been a fun filled week of Christmas celebrations in San Diego. We had a big family get together with ALL of Sophia's cousins on my side on Saturday night and another one the next day at my sister Melisa's in Encinitas. Here, little Joseph is pushing Sophia on their cousin Heath's bike... I need to get her something like this, she LOVED it and did NOT want to get off.

Here I am with my two sweet sisters. Melisa is my oldest sister on the left. She has a super cute little 3 year old boy named Heath and a beautiful house in Encinitas where we all got together. Lacy, on the right is five months pregnant now... and having a girl!!! Joseph is 17 months old now so they'll be like 21 months apart... AHHH! This is a really random blog but I had a minute while Sophia was sleeping so I thought I would do a little update.

We spent Christmas morning with Lacy, Joe, Joseph, and my parents at my parents house in Bonita. It was a perfect morning full of family, unwrapping gifts, sausage rolls, eggs, sweet Christmas music, and happy children.

Sophia opened her new Tickle me Elmo doll and loved it. She would stare at it kind of suspiciously and then go crazy laughing and trying to give him loves..... or wrestle him...I'm not really sure. But I'm pretty sure she liked it.

Now we're off tomorrow to Utah to spend New Year's with Ross' family. I'm so excited to let Sophia play in the snow since for all intents and purposes it will be her first time. I feel so lucky that we get to spend time with both families over this holiday season and that Sophia will get to play with ALL of her thirteen cousins... and I'm pretty excited that I'm going to get to eat at Cafe Rio.

Lil! Seeing you in Utah was worth missing Christmas! From the first hug (I love those hugs) to the jeans-sharing to the baby oogling to the here's-'my-life-stream-of-conscious... I loved every second! Thank you for letting me invade the family holiday (seriously, who am I? grabbing a plate of food during a family gathering...) and catching me up on at least a few more little parts of your life. I loved seeing the photos of your family and baby Soph, and just talking about life. Hope you and Ross and Baby Girl fly home to CALIFORNIA safely. I love you so very much and can't wait for the next hug. In the meantime, one of my New Years Resolutions is to keep up better with those I love! xo

It looks like you had a wonderful time with your family. There is nothing like being reunited with your sisters. It's the best thing in the world.
Eat lots of Cafe Rio for me. :)

Ok. Will you tell Lacy to start a blog too? We'll relive La Jolla #1 and #4 all over again via blogs and post-college life.
