Happy Christmas

I can't believe Christmas is already over. Truthfully, it never felt like Christmas to me...not even on Christmas day! Oh well, whether it felt like Christmas or not, it was still a great day. On the 23rd the Shreeve side of the family got together for a big Mexican dinner. It was oh-so-yummy! For Christmas Eve we took the simple route and ordered pizza. Then we went to see the beautiful temple lights and afterward had dessert at my parents' house with our good friends the Selks.

Christmas morning we did our own thing at our house before heading down to my parents. As you can see, Lucy was less than enthused by the whole Christmas festivities.

Oh well...we enjoyed it enough for her.

We flew Cory's parents up to Idaho to spend Christmas with his siblings that live up there, so we were able to have his brother Brett stay the night Christmas Eve and share Lucy's first Christmas with us. I think she really likes her Uncle Brett.

After we did our Christmas thing, we headed down to my parents for the highlight of my Christmas day...
Talking to that stud on the computer! It was sooooo good to talk to (and SEE) Jake! We miss him so much and I was glad that he finally was able to really see his new niece Lucy (other than in pictures). Unfortunately, she was unwilling to be in a smiley mood and instead would only give her famous Lucy furrowed brow...oh well. I think he still liked seeing her and Navy and Brock and the rest of us all the same.

Check out the cute hats Jake sent us girls from Denmark.
(I won't show you the skimpy undies he sent the boys...Dano was even so bold as to model them for us but that's a picture better left unseen)

After we talked to Jake we opened presents ---- close to 4:00 PM! I think Kenna and Kai were going a little nuts!

All in all, it was a great Christmas. We are so happy to have this little girl in our lives and cannot wait until she is old enough to understand and enjoy Christmas as much as we do. Hope you all had a wonderful Christmas too!

Ria Tortilla, Tortilla Ria!

Last month my Auntie Ria came to visit us from California. We love it when our Aunt Ria comes to visit...it always feels like she never left. We always have the best time shopping and visiting and just hanging out. I know that Lucy already loves her Aunt Ria and will love her more and more as she grows up.

Turkey Day

We were able to spend Thanksgiving in Rocky Point this year. My family usually goes down there for Thanksgiving but this is the first year Cory and I have been able to go. It was so much fun and was even warm enough for Cory to do some fishing and for me to spend some time reading on the beach.

Lucy was too little to enjoy it this time but I know when she gets older she is going to LOVE the beach as much as her dad and I do. We can't wait until we get a break in our schedule so we can go back again.
