CHRISTMAS PART I

Christmas this year was perfect. I think I say that every year, probably because it is perfect every year. :) Because we wanted to be able to spend part of Christmas with Nathan’s family in California, we went for an early Christmas this year. We were in California Dec 13-18th and it was wonderful. Friday, Saturday and Sunday we were with Nathan’s Dad and family. So much fun! Friday we hung out, played games and laughed a ton. Saturday we went on an 8 mile hike by Lake Poway. It was Mt. Woodsen, up to Potato Chip Rock. It was a lot harder than I expected it to be, but it was a lot of fun and I was proud of all of us for doing it!

I did it!
Very cool rocks and views.
We had Christmas later that night, we played games, exchanged gifts, ate good food and had a great time. Seriously so much fun! We played some heated rounds of Spot It. (One of our new favorite games)
Sunday we went to church with Grandma Silvija and Grandpa Ron then over to their house. Monday we drove along the coast and ended up at the dog beach. It was great, and Sergeant had a good time too. Made me want to have a dog, and live on the beach. We had lunch at Chipotle, one of Nathan’s favorite places. Silvija brought her camera and she took some great photos of us and the gorgeous sunset in Carlsbad that night. 

This was THE most beautiful sunset I’ve ever seen. And as beautiful as this photo is, it doesn’t capture it. 
Tuesday was great too! We drove down to San Diego and did a session there. If you live anywhere near San Diego, go to that temple! It’s gorgeous inside and outside! When we came out, the Christmas lights were up, and it was so so pretty!

My toes are levitating from my sandals. Weird.

I always wish we could stay longer, and maybe next time we will. We had a wonderful trip!
