Our Best Christmas!
On Christmas Eve we went to my sister-in-law's house. Here are the kids in the backyard in a little box train that Aunt Kimmie made. My in-laws were also there. We had a fun casual night and were home early to get cookies out for Santa and get Peanut to bed.
Christmas morning started at 5:15 a.m. Alexa burst into our bedroom declaring "Santa was here and brought presents!!" My folks came over ( after an early morning wake up call) and we opened presents. Afterwards we made a big breakfast of Eggs Benedict, hash brown casserole and sausage, biscuits and gravy...yum! My folks went home and we played all day with our new toys ( I got my much anticipated new camera... a Sony DSLR a350 ). Later in the afternoon we went to my folks house for dinner. My mom made a delicious dinner and we all chilled out. It was a day filled with magic, laughter and great memories. We all agreed it was our Best Christmas Ever!
I am a fortysomething mom of an amazing daughter that we adopted in 2006 from Hubei China. Alexa is 10 years old and lights up our lives everyday. I am married to my best friend, have 3 crazy dogs and love my life near the beach. We are soaking up life in CA in our new home and welcome you into our piece of paradise.
