Ok. I know we are well into January. And who wants to see Christmas pictures in January? But I’m behind. So very behind on posting pictures that mean a lot to me. Pictures that I want to always remember. This blog is a lot of things to me and one of them is what it started out as – my personal family scrapbook. So yes. Christmas pictures in January. Kenny is asleep on the couch and I’m watching one HGTV home improvement show after another. It’s catch up time. :)
We spent a lot of December evenings taking the kids to look at lights and especially loved visiting the San Diego temple
. It is always beautiful, but at Christmas time it’s simply breathtaking. We visit several times each December and talk about why we celebrate Christmas. It has become a favorite tradition. Clearly my kids love the nativity. So do “Softie” and “McKena” – the stuffed animals that accompanied us on every trip. :)
Love this picture.
I also love that El is wearing a coat and a skirt. Winter in San Diego!
Don’t love that Kenny was at the bottom of a hill looking up to take this picture, but I don’t have many pics of me with all three of my kids and because of that I cherish this one. When I look at this picture I can’t help but feel incredibly blessed. These three mean the world to me. You were in the mood for a little sap now weren’t you.
Playing around with camera settings trying to get a good picture of the Palm Tree lights.

Grinch time! We took the girls to the Old Globe Theatre in December to see The Grinch. Such a fun play. We enjoyed it so much that we all decided it needs to be an annual tradition.
One of my Cindy Lou Who’s. :)
Kenny and Ad messing around waiting for the show to start.
Too fun. Fingers crossed next year my little man can join us. Verdict is still out on whether he will be able to hold still or not… hmm.. fingers crossed the year after next my little man can join us. :)
Fun spending time with family over the Christmas break. I didn’t take too many pictures this trip, but I love this one with my mom and sister. Yes. My sister is there. She made me mad so I cropped her out. Ha! Kidding. :) Her decision. We were on our way to lunch with friends. Much needed girl time!
Shopping with my kids and mom a few days before Christmas.
We took turns. One of us shopped while the other one entertained the littles.
Last minute Christmas shopping at its finest!
It was a great December. And now I’m caught up. :)
