Christmas 2007

Merry Merry Christmas!!! I know that we are a few days late...but better late than never!

We had a wonderful white Christmas just the three of us. Unfortunately, we did not make it out to California this holiday season, but maybe next year. We have been talking about what traditions we would like to have as a family. This being our third Christmas and we still don't really have any "traditions". Turns out we found one. Zachary ended up sleeping with us Christmas Eve night. Poor little guy was not feeling well and still isn't feeling well. He had a bit of a cough on Christmas Eve and wasn't sleeping very well that night so we brought him to bed with us and he

slept like a log the rest of the night. We really didn't get Zachary anything for Christmas other than a ball and some books. The rest came from the grandparents. He liked to tear the paper....we just had to start it for him. I think that he would have enjoyed himself more had he felt better.
And as I said before we had a White Christmas!!! It snowed like crazy on Christmas Eve night. We had some friends over for dinner and it was still snowing pretty bad when they left that night. Good thing they only live a few doors down from us. Joe shoveled the driveway and sidewalks while I took care of the cars. It was beautiful! The snow just glittered in the yard. I wanted to make a snowman so badly but the snow was just too fluffy.
We are so very grateful for this time of year to celebrate the birth of our Savior, Jesus Christ. Not only are we grateful for this holiday but we are grateful for the sacrifice of his life for ours. As it has been said by the prophets...God be thanked for the matchless gift of his Son, Jesus Christ.

OOohhh - I'm so glad you found us! Zachary is so cute! (We had gotten to see pics of him at the Davis' in Oxnard at Thanksgiving too - so cute!). He looks a lot like Joe, but it seems like he has your eyes (you probably get sick of hearing that he looks like Joe?).
I was reading your post about the kitchen book - and about Joe. Paul is that passionate about architecture too, so I kinda knew what you meant. Probably the only time Paul doesn't want to think or talk about architecture is if it is related to a stressful thing at work - otherwise, he's always game! I think it's pretty cool to watch our husbands get so into what they do! They're lucky! So are we!

Looking forward to keeping in touch! (By the way, where did you get your background?)

I hear quite often that Zachary looks like Joe...but that's ok...Joe (the ever joking husband that he is) likes to say that at least he knows that Zachary is not the mailman's kid. Then he gets a nice punch in the arm. =)
I'm going to put a link to your blog on mine...I can't wait to see more pictures of Taya. She is beautiful!
BTW, I got my background on lots of free backgrounds on that site.
Talk to you soon!
