Christmas 2009

I never take enough pictures! Savannah is going to think that her parents were never there for special events!
Anyway, we had a FABULOUS Christmas! We were definitely spoiled but felt blessed to be around those we love! I am so grateful for a wonderful mother and mother in law who work so hard to make the holidays memorable!

The Sunday before Christmas we celebrated with Josh's family. We had a great dinner and opened presents. Savannah loves her new toys!

Then we loaded up and flew to California. The weather wasn't the 80 degrees that I dreamed it to be but it was still perfect. I never get homesick when I am there...I could stay forever! Anyways, we had a blast with my family and Savannah loved playing with her cousins! We went to Knotts Berry Farm, shopped, played and ate! :) I loved Christmas in CA. It was perfect!
