Josh and I came to California for Christmas and are so happy to be here! We love being with my family, especially for the holidays. We decided to have our Christmas before we left for my parents. Josh was so cute and surprised me with some awesome gifts!
He got me two of my favorite movies of all time, "Three Men and a Baby" and "Sleeping Beauty." I am so excited to own these now!!!
This was my big surprise, Josh got me a new digital SLR camera and photography lessons. I can't wait to learn how to use my new camera and finally take some good quality pictures!
We also went to Temple Square to see the lights with our friends before we left.
The boys enjoyed a romantic moment together.
The first night we were in CA was Christmas Eve. We went right over to my Aunt's house for dinner with the whole family.
We played a gift exchange game which was really fun. Everyone got really creative with the gifts they brought. Our family brought everything from ice skating lessons, DVDs and breakfast baskets, to gift cards and headbands.
My sweet Aunt Cynthia made us all the greatest gifts. She put a book together for each of us with thoughts, memories, and photos of our cousin Trevor. Trevor passed away two years ago this coming January, of a very rare cancer. He was fifteen years old.
Joshy boy got me an Iphone, which I am so excited about! I have been using the same crappy phone for the past several years so I am thrilled.
Christmas night my Grandma Judy and her boyfriend Bob came over for din din. After dinner we made all sorts of cookies.
We had the best Christmas. It has been amazing to spend several days with my family. Josh and I miss them so much throughout the year. They are much fun and we adore each of them. We are so grateful for this time of year and the chance we get to reflect on the birth and life of our Savior. We are grateful for his example and the sacrifice he made on our behalf. We hope you all had an enjoyable time with you families and loved ones on this very special day.
