And now for a look at our holiday season.

|15 days later - finally decorated and presents were wrapped|
We left the Valley of the Sun for rainy California the weekend before Christmas. The car was PACKED with 2 adults, 1 child, 2 dogs, and a bunch of Christmas presents. First stop was Visalia. We stayed with Danielle and Kane in their very nice new house. Lilah stayed with us half the week and with her Grandma Ya Ya the other half of the week. It worked out very nicely for all of us. Shannon and I even got out on a date night to a movie and beers afterwards. Yeah for Grandma!
|I did some running in the rain|

|She was helping wrap presents|
|Bath time with the girls|
|Heading down for dinner at Grandma Jeri's|
|The girls were not spoiled at all!|
|"Uhm..what am I supposed to do with all this stuff?"|
|Lilah, Rylee, and Peyton|
|Enjoying the Christmas Eve weather|
Then Christmas morning came with a visit from Santa and a car trip up to Modesto to visit my family. My whole family was in the same house Christmas night and it was busy, loud and wonderful. Next year I am hoping we can all do it again and I can be there a little longer with everybody.
|Grandpa's Great-Grandkids - what a gorgeous bunch!|
|"Why am I wearing this?"|
|All bundled up and ready to go to the park|
|New Year's Day stroll to the park in the new trike|
|"Is it time to get back in yet?"|
|"Thanks Rylee for my new chair!"|
|Where's Waldo? She has been having a blast with all her new toys|
