scenes from our Christmas holiday....

Highlights from Christmas with my family:

The main focus was Mason and Mia

it is so much fun to just watch little

kids move around and see what they will do

next.  The last time I saw these two littles

they were not even crawling and now they are

both talking and walking - adorable beyond words!

Mason is going to be a big brother at the end of

March and we found out on Christmas day that Mia-girl

is going to be a big sister in early July!  So much fun!

On Christmas day - it was the usual sit around chatting,

eating everything in sight, watching the little ones tear

into gifts and realizing it's the wrapping paper that they

really want to play with...haha...The next few days were

spent hanging out with my mom and sister.  I was able to

get together with one of my best friends - which is always

such a treat.  We also watched "It's a Wonderful Life" as 

Steff's boyfriend had never watched it and it made my brother

in law so happy as no one ever wants to watch it with him, as

we've seen it so many times.  But viewing it with fresh eyes,

I noticed so much more than I had before and loved it even 

more!  They just don't make movies like they used to.

  I took a few walks down my sisters country road

enjoying the crisp fresh air and talking to the goats

along the way. 

I also took a tour of Mason's new bedroom (as 

they recently moved)he showed me all of his toys and let me 

 read him some of his favorite books! 

He calls me Aunt Cappy - love it! He is quite the character!

We also went bowling and had a great time - so much laughter.

My sister and I grew up playing in bowling leagues every

Saturday morning, so this was a definite blast from the 

past!  The last photo was from a restaurant we stopped at in

San Luis Obispo - they name all of their meals after authors,

so I had to get the Dr. Seuss for the fun of it - a grilled

PB&J with powdered sugar - yum! The girl cut out with the

inspirational words was in the restroom, it definitely made me

smile as I'm sure it did everyone who entered that day!  Such a

great idea.  All in all a wonderful, much needed visit with my

family.  Our lives get so busy and time flies but making time

with the ones you love is essential as life is definitely

short and to be savored by the moment!  Cheers to making

all of our dreams come true this year!

Kindness Rocks - let's all remember that daily!

Sounds pretty perfect to me--family coming together, holiday traditions, and sweet little ones to bring out the magic of Christmas.

Happy New Year to you and yours!
