We had a pretty busy Christmas season this year. We decided to make a super-quick trip to Disneyland before passes expired and give a quick hello to Mickey and the gang! It was fun, but rained the entire time! We were cold and wet! Abbi rode Space Mountain for the first time! After we rode she said, "That was fun! Let's NOT do that forever!" She was pretty much afraid to ride anything after that. I guess I've scarred her for life! Early Christmas Eve we had a special visitor (Old St. Nick). Abbi was so excited! Jack eventually warmed up to him, and Amelie had no idea why she was being handed to some strange old man who was dressed way too warm for California winters!

It was a special year for Abbi. She got her American Girl Doll. Every girl in the family has one (even me) so this year was her turn. She got Felicity. She was so excited. Can you tell by her face?

The rest of the evening was spent with Paul's extended family. Abbi and Jack were BOTH angels and Amelie was Baby Jesus this year. Even though there were like 3 other babies there! But she was the smallest and the sleepiest. She was such a good baby Jesus and slept through most of it. We had another special visitor that night (I like to call him YOUNG St. Nick). Do you recognize that Santa? Jackson kind of gave it away when he sat on Santa's lap and said excitedly, "Oh, Daddy Santa!!!" just like a light bulb went off in his head. Hopefully that won't ruin Santa for him.
Christmas Day we just relaxed and pigged out! Good times. Here are some pictures from the last few weeks:


  1. I love this post! Especially Santa Daddy and the vid of Abbi at Disneyland and you with your mommy voice and then switching and saying, "seriously". I miss you all!

  2. Okay, so you said, "are you joking" when she didn't know where she was and you can hear the ticket machines in the background giving the magic ding. It still made me laugh.
