Christmas holds many fond memories for me growing up and some of these things I want to pass on to our children as we continue our journey together.
On Christmas eve after having spent a lovely evening with Grandma and Grandpa Black, Great Grandma Black, and Chelsi and her husband Morgan we came home and read the Christmas story. Luke 2. How grateful I am for his birth and how grateful I am he came for us. This is the one thing I want my children to understand about Christmas. The presents we get are wonderful, but he gave us the greatest gift of all.
Christmas Day, Grandma and Grandpa Black and Uncle Lang came over to be with us as Abbie opened her presents. She was so excited. Thanks for coming over to be with us.
The whole time we opened presents she jumped and giggled and ran around in circles. Her Aunts and uncles and both sets of grandparents were so cute to send her little gifts and we are so thankful for their thoughtfulness. I think her favorite gift was her box of princess dress up clothes. SHE LOVES THEM!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Abbie really loved this ride even though she looks bored. She was so focused on the ride.

OH MY DID SHE LOVE THE TEACUPS. I THINK ADAM LOVED THEM MORE!!!
OH BOY! What a great time to go to Disneyland... We had a ball. It was a very quick, but a very fun time with family.
Some may say Why Disneyland right before Christmas? I say WHY NOT. It was beautiful. We arrived at my parents condo Wednesday, December 21st. I could hardly sleep a wink because I was so excited to have Abbie go to Disneyland.
My older sister and her family and my mom and dad joined us on this adventure.
As you walked in there was this ginormous Christmas tree and lights decorating all the streets.
Here are a few pictures from our fun filled days at Disneyland and California Adventures.
I could have cared less where we met up, but I was so glad that Abbie got to see, play, and hold hands with a few of her cousins. I know she would love playing with all of them. It was just fun seeing my sister and her family and my parents.
