New Years 2011

We could not have asked for a better New Years. We spent it visiting the family in Sacramento CA. Where we got to see Connor bond with Grandma, Grandpa, Great Granddad, Uncle Bobby, Uncle Matthew, Auntie Andrea and his cousins Natalie and Andrew. We have not seen them in over a year and we were all over due for some serious catching up time.

The drive up was a breeze. Connor seems like a 13 year old sometimes; now he can control the DVD player in the car all by himself. It's so nice not to have to hang over the seat and press buttons for him or change movies. This age is amazing, he is becoming so independent.

I was so happy they still had the tree up for some nice holiday shots.

Connor and Grandpa played Legos, read horse books, played the wii and did some serious bonding. So much so that the 1st night we were there Connor asked if he could sleep with Grandma and Grandpa. Ah the magic of grandparents! How I wished we lived closer.

Napping with Grandma.

Connor got to pick oranges with Grandma and Uncle Bobby. And they sent us home with tons! I will be looking up some orange recipes.

Connor absolutely adores his cousin Natalie who just turned 7! She is the cool older cousin; he could not get enough of her. They had so much fun together.

I was so happy to spend time catching up with Grandma.

Sleeping angel . . . Andrew has the absolute sweetest voice. He is at that stage where they speak in 2 word sentences. He is just darling!

4 generations right there! How lucky Connor is to know his great grandfather. You would never know that Great Granddad had a heart attack on Christmas eve. He seems as strong as an ox and sharp as a tack. Connor had such a great time visiting with everyone that when it was time to head back to SB he cried. We are so thankful for such a wonderful family.
