Christmas 2012 Recap

Christmas was great! Landon made cookies for Santa and left him some milk - we tracked him on NORAD and FINALLY Landon decided to give in and head to bed so Santa would stop off by our house to leave him some presents. It was fun this year with the whole "SANTA" thing - Landon loved it and randomly now asks where he is and when is he coming back.

Ivan so impressed with all the hub-bub

I was beyond thrilled that this year on the actual DAY of Christmas Billy was off! Growing up my Dad worked many holidays/birthdays and we knew we celebrate whenever Daddy was off work! Same goes in our house today. Holidays are just another day - we celebrate when Daddy is home and able to be with us for that event. But this year - the first year as a family of four and Landon being sooooo exciting about Santa - it was just heart warming to have him home!

We had a small dinner - we had over our other family to celebrate with us this year. Titi (Michelle), Lita (Rosa), Dali (Michelle's sister) and Dali's husband Luis. We had a great time. Being away from our blood family on holidays is semi sad each time but having friends here that are more family than friends makes holidays and everyday honestly just  BETTER! We are truly blessed!
