Christmas Day

Twas the night before Christmas...and we ended up being up most of the night.


The Santa Ana's blew in and our little house shook and shuttered at the 70 mile an hour gusts. She creaked and moaned and groaned, but thankfully...she was still standing in the morning.

And yes, at one point, I actually wondered if we were going to end up in Kansas.

So, we waited and waited for the boys to wake up. How often does that happen?


Presents and presents and presents. And a husband who made California Eggs Benedict...the kind with a million dollar avocado on them. Lunch was my neighbors homemade, authentic tamales that her Mom and Aunts make every year.

M wept when they brought them over.


I had some time on my hands, so I decided to make Struffoli...which are kind of like small Italian donuts rolled in honey and covered in sprinkles.

Looked pretty.
Tasted awful.
Oh well.
Live and learn.

Over came the other part of our family for more presents. And a trip to the park, since those winds brought 75 degree weather with them.

Maddie is 4. And perfect.
My brother in law thinks he's still 4.

But he's not.

Logan is on the move. I feel their pain.
A friendly game of football.
Miss Sophie and her princesses.
We hung out and then ate a LOT of prime rib. And blue cheese twice baked potatoes. And garlic green beans. Very, very yummy!

The reason for all of this?
A baby!

For God so loved the world, that He sent his only begotten Son, that whoever believes in Him, shall not perish, but have everlasting life.
John 3:16

Merry Christmas, everyone!
