Merry Christmas and Happy New Year!

What a very Merry Christmas we had this year! Both the boys were spoiled during their THREE Christmases! First there was Christmas Eve with Mammy and Bop Bop (Diane's Mom and Stepdad). It was so great to spend the evening with family and enjoy a yummy meal and lots of presents! Diane went on to sing Midnight Mass with her choir and crawled into bed around 2am. Fortunately, she was in bed before Santa came to visit! Ian put out cookies for Santa and carrots for the reindeer. For Christmas number two, Santa brought Ian a Jack In The Box and a Buzz Lightyear which Ian enjoyed playing with most of the morning. Then after some downtime at home, we hopped in the car and drove to Nonna and Papa's house in Walnut Creek (Diane's Dad and Stepmom). We enjoyed another yummy dinner of cracked crab and yet another round of presents!
Ian also celebrated the holidays at preschool with a darling holiday program and an early surprise visit from Santa!

New Year's Eve was quiet and relaxed... the boys went to bed early and we enjoyed watching the movie Hancock with Dan and Sarah, then watching the ball drop and toasting with champange and sparkling cider at midnight! I believe we were all in bed by 12:30, but enjoyed our chance to ring in the new year!
Although we have taken down the treen and put away the decorations, there is more celebrating to come! We are looking forward to yet another Christmas with David's family in Truckee in January. We are so blessed toget to spend the holidays with such wonderful family!
