Merry Christmas

From our home to yours! I hope everyone remembers to celebrate the real reason for this special day and focus less on the material things. We're having a nice relaxing weekend with Frank's cousin Ricky, they plan to spend the whole weekend playing xbox. Fine with me Frank can get his fix while Ricky is here :) Then the thing will be gone with Ricky.

Yesterday morning I took George (you'll meet him soon) for a long walk enjoying this amazing weather we have been blessed with. I wish it was staying around longer, but we only get it for a few days. I'll take what I can get though! I went back and forth with debating about what to make for dinner, traditional or something easy like lasagna. Since I had almost everything for a lasagna and have no idea how to cook any kind of bird, nor do I want to, I went with lasagna and homemade french bread with a salad. Delish :)

Then we ended our night at church celebrating the birth of Jesus Christ. It also made me glad that on a normal basis children under a certain age aren't aloud in the sanctuary. There were a few little ones crying the whole time and it wasn't until the end that the mom finally went to the back. The church has nursing rooms and a little chapel that they can go into and watch the service.. I was hoping they would have used them. I ended up not concentrating on the service because of the.. extra noise, but it didn't bother me that much since it only happens a few times a year.

This morning Michelle and I went out to Ocean Beach and got Starbucks to visit our friend and small group leader Maggie who was working today. I wish I would have taken my camera, OB was looking super cute with the Christmas decorations up. Total so cal Christmas ;)

Merry Christmas all!!
Here's a little tour of the few Christmas decorations we have around the house...

 Our poor snowman got drenched in the rain since I didn't think to move him. Sorry little guy!

 The wreath in the middle was made by Michelle at Maybe Sparrow. I absolutely LOVE it!! I want another wreath to hang year round.. I just don't know of what yet. She has more if you'd like to check them out.

Don't you just love our Christmas tree!? :) I got rid of our big tree over the summer since I didn't like it and it was just taking up space. Since we were gone for half of December there was no reason to spend money on a huge tree and decorations, I was however in love with these little colorful ones at Target! An $8 tree was perfect for me.
