Christmas in California

Once we got to California I realized we still have not taken Wes to see Santa. I felt like the worst mom ever. Every time I have tried I was to inpatient to wait so we ended  up never going. So Christmas eve day where were we, standing a the longest line waiting to see Santa. Luckily we came early and Garrett stood in line while Wes and I finished some shopping. So about an hour later, $23 poorer we left with our picture of Wes screaming on Santa's lap. Maybe next year he'll like him.

Do you see that line? We were up by the front and it still took an hour.

The food 

We ate at all our Favorite Restaurants. Our list includes, several trips to La Cocina, Stone fire, and Wahoos. The best food you can possibly get though is his moms good cooking. I don't think I ever stopped eating the entire trip.

 we all have chips in our mouth. That's how good it is. You have to keep eating.

This little boy was lovin on both Garrett and I. We love those twins. Mollie was to busy socializing to get in these pictures.


Every time we come into town we always try to go down to LA and do something fun. So this trip we decided to hike the Hollywood sign. It was a good hike. Wes loved it for about 5 min and he was done. It took us about a hour to get  up to the sign. m It was mainly flat with little inclines here and there. It was really amazing being that close to the Hollywood sign, and the views for LA from up there were so beautiful.

Christmas Eve

Wesley really loved Christmas this year. He didn't completely understand but he was so happy. Our Christmas Eve was magical. All the nieces came up with the program that night. They worked on it all day.

How cute is that. Before this we did this we had a delicious dinner, acted out the Nativity and got in our Christmas Jammies. One of my favorite traditions they have is Orphy the Elf. He usually comes by during our program, and drops off some presents and a special Santa Letter. This letter is directly from Santa. He talks about each kids that is there and their families about how the year went. Santa new about baseball games, dance recitals, and all sorts of things. This is so cute to see each child just light up when Santa mentions them in the letter.  I am going to carry on these tradition for sure.

Loves Papa 

Towards the end of the week we took off to Bakersfield to spend time with Eric and Carlee and get some work done on our car.  Wesley helped Jayden with his roller blades. He loved his helmet.

Then we packed our bags and headed home Thursday night. Just in time for all of us to get sick. That's when you know I guess. Hope everyone had a very Merry Christmas and a Happy new Year.

Oh my heavens, you know that you are going to be so glad that you dropped 23 dollars for that Santa photo, right? Wes is a DOLL and I think that is the cutest picture I have ever seen. (Cutest sweater too!)
