Christmas in Cali

As usual, we spent Christmas Eve with my side of the family and Christmas Day with the Marshalls.

At “Grandmother’s” house Max decorated the tree and enjoyed his awesome new car that Grandmother gave him. She also gave him a motorcycle tricycle.

As a Christmas gift to my mom, Mike, Soin, and I attempted to recite the Living Christ from memory. We split it up into three parts. Mike was able to do his part with no problem, Soin did an awesome job and only had to read the last one or two lines and I had to read my last paragraph. It really is beautiful. We have decided to make it a tradition to try and do this every year.

We went over to my cousin's house to spend some time with other family. Max had fun with his cousin, Isabella.

Then we headed over to the Marshall’s for Christmas day. Here’s the usual spread of gifts. Max really was spoiled this year. He got so much stuff! And yes I asked Santa for a snuggie and I got one :) (thanks Naomi!)

We ate a delicious Christmas dinner: turkey, ham, chicken, mashed potatoes, yams, green bean casserole, rolls, chow mein, and fried rice. I think Max liked the chow mein best.IMG_5738 IMG_5743 IMG_5749 IMG_5750 IMG_5751 IMG_5753 IMG_5757 IMG_5758 IMG_5759 IMG_5762 IMG_5765

What a great Christmas we had!
