Holiday 2009

What a great holiday season, we spent time with family in early December so we had a quiet Christmas at home. It was nice to wake up in our own house and open presents by the fire. We did all the traditional Christmas stuff drove around looking at Christmas lights, made cookies for Santa, opened lots of presents, made a big ham for dinner with all the trimming and even a homemade chocolate pecan pie. Connor got to play in the snow at the natural history museum with Samantha. Chris and I attend a few holiday parties and Connor and I enjoyed having Chris home for some extra days. Happy Holidays.

Connor's favorite gifts are always from Grandma!
Dinosaurs dinosaurs dinosaurs.

And yes that is a real SNUGGIE people.

Once again Happy Holidays.

5 Year Anniversary

This was a big milestone for us. Chris and I never really had the wedding we dreamed of. So for our 5 year anniversary we renewed our vows at the Santa Barbara Court house and threw ourselves an anniversary party to remember at Stella Mare's with 50 of our closest friends and family. We did a private ceremony to renew the vows and it was incredibly moving. Having Connor participate in the ceremony meant so much to us. He now thinks he is married to mommy and married to daddy. We feel so thankful for all the love and support we get from each other everyday. Thank you all who celebrated with us. It was a magical experience with memories that will last a life time.
