I think this is the longest break I've taken from blogging in years. For those of you who are still reading here, I just want to say hi and thanks for caring. We just returned home from spending our Christmas in Arizona and California, and at the airport in San Diego, I was stopped in the bathroom by a kind woman who recognized me. She told me she reads my blog and it made me feel so good. I didn't catch her name (since I had two boys pulling on me), but if you're reading this, "cute blonde with the great smile" I just want you to know that you made my day. Haha, this feels like one of those "Missed Connection" posts.
My father-in-law picked us up from Lela's house and then we drove to El Centro for the night. The next morning we hopped in the car and drove to Arizona to spend a few days with my family. I took no pictures of that but more Mexican food was eaten and more hugs and fun. On Sunday morning we drove back to El Centro to stay for the week. David promptly got sick as soon as we arrived and spent the next three days in bed. That part was no bueno but the kids had so much fun being spoiled by Gramma, Grampa and their aunts. They even decorated cookies at Aunt Bethy's house, which was a big hit!
After the two littlest kids were in bed, we sang lots of Christmas songs with props from David's mom's school. William was loving all the attention to himself and really enjoyed dressing up as Santa. This is such a fun age at Christmas! He was so excited to put out cookies, milk and a game for Santa to play.
