Merry Christmas, 2012!!
Merry Christmas friends!!
We made it back to the bay area this evening. I managed to get everything unpacked and put away. I’m actually shocked I got it all done.
This morning we slept in a bit then Mike & I opened presents in bed. I was annoyingly excited about giving him a Tommy Bahama silk shirt. He loves that store, but can’t wrap his head around their prices. So I did it for him & I’m pretty sure he loves it! I have no idea how a picture of it managed to escape my camera, so I’ll show it to you later.
He gave me a Brookstone Big Blue Live Wireless Speaker that operates through bluetooth. It’s pretty awesome. I already have my Google Nexus tablet & iPhone hooked up to it and rocked out while unpacking.
Then we picked up the Lu and headed to ma & pa’s house.
Where I had dad’s famous breakfast burritos and coffee.
We got there and they were already making Christmas supper. Ma makes the best green beans. Her secret is bacon. 😉
Pa was so excited about his ham, he called me in to take a picture of it.
My adorable sister, BIL & nieces showed up and it was time to start Christmas. (Pa’s unknowingly photo bombing in the background.)
Amanda played Santa this year!
One of the many highlights is grandma Lucille got a laptop. She is super smart and figured out how to work her computer my parents gave her. She’s even on Facebook every day! Ma & pa upgraded her to her very own laptop.
Another favorite was when Blair opened her princess play dough set we gave her she squealed and said “aunnie, I’ve always wanted one of these!!” Awe, made my day! <3
We house hopped to grandmas for lunch, and hung out for a little longer. We started heading back to the bay at 2:15 and made it home in record time.
It was a pretty easy drive, some rain here & there while a lucky Jack snoozed the whole way home.
I wasn’t as sad to leave this time because we’ll be back next week and Lissy Lu came home with us for the week so I’ll be entertaining her. She is a kick to hang out with & I’m stoked she’s here!
I hope everyone had a Merry Christmas with those you love!! Mike & I feel very blessed as always!
