Some Highlights from the Holidays

Here are some highlights (in pictures) from Winter Break, Christmas, and New Year's Eve.  Enjoy!

We went back to Pretend City.  We were hoping to meet up with cousins and friends, but it was so crowded, it was hard to find and visit with them.  Mckenzie and I had a fun time while we were there.  Her favorite area is still the farming area.  Mckenzie loves to dig for plants and then replant them.

We also went to Disneyland to see all the Christmas Decorations and ride the rides.  We went to Small World first.  As we were leaving the ride, we saw the end of the parade and saw the snow falling.  Disneyland is an even more magical time during this season.

On Christmas Eve, we went to my Grandparent's house to see the entire family.  I loved Mckenzie's little outfit!

On Christmas morning, we opened up our presents in our pajamas at our house.  It was nice seeing Mckenzie excited about her gifts.  She didn't quite get the whole opening presents idea.  Once we started ripping the paper, she would continue.  Everything was excitement when she saw it!  Mckenzie would look at the new things and not want to put them down.  Needless to say, we still had some presents to open after Christmas was over!

After our presents at home, we went to my parent's house to open presents with them.  Mckenzie loved her new tricycle and kitchen set from Uncle Mike and Grandma and Grandpa.

Even later, we went over to Matt and Stephanie's house to do dinner with Doug's family.  It was a nice day full of family.  Mckenzie loved the dinner, especially the dessert.  It was "plate lickingly" good.  :)

The day after Christmas, we went to Doug's parent's house to do presents with Doug's family.  Tommy and Tracy also came with Christina and Nick. 

On New Year's Eve, family and friends came over to our house to celebrate.  Matt and Stephanie and the girls even stayed the night.  It was nice to be with family and friends together in our house for once.
