This year we stayed in California for Christmas since Jorge took time off for Thanksgiving. It was so hard and lonely without family on Christmas. To me, Christmas is about being with family and enjoying lots of visits on Christmas day, and just being together. We tried our best to make the day fun for the kids so they didn't miss their grandparents and cousins too much.
Santa brought the boys lots of fun stuff. Kaden got a Star Wars Lego ship, some running shoes, some books, and other stuff. Nicolas' favorite thing was a huge firetruck he got.
Jorge got a fire pit for the back yard and all of the fixins for smores, yummy!
Santa accidentally left his bag in our fireplace full of toys! The boys found it after opening all of their gifts and got very excited!
We used my new skillet to make a very yummy french toast breakfast.
After breakfast we went and saw the movie "Bolt", it was a lot of fun and a very cute movie. Then, we went home and got stuff ready to go to some friends house for an early dinner. We had already planned on having the missionaries come over for dinner, so needless to say at the end of the day we were way too full!
In the end we had a good Christmas. We stayed so busy the day went by way to fast. After our dinner with the missionaries our friends wanted us to come back for cinnamon rolls and games. We didn't get home til 11 and we were all exhausted.
