Xander's Blessing

This is my beautiful little boy. He is getting so big I can hardly believe it!

The weekend after Thanksgiving was Xander's blessing day. Isn't he cute?
Grandma and Grandpa Daveline drove down from Vegas to be there and my mom and dad, sister Beth and her husband Brian all drove down from Utah.

Look at my gorgeous little sister! She is a News Producer and she is AMAZING! Brian is her very talented (sports)anchor husband. They are an amazing couple and I love them!

Adam did an amazing job with the blessing. I am so lucky to have such amazing family!

Peggy, Amber, Victor and Michelle

Peggy and Amber flew out for Thanksgiving. We were so happy they came. It's such a long flight and so much travel but we were so grateful they came!

One of my favorite pictures of Peggy and Xan.

Adam's MFA

With the birth of Xander, I haven't put much up in the way of why we came out here to San Diego, Adam's Grad Program. They are such an amazing group of people. Talented, kind, accepting and all around great people.
Adam and his classmates just put on "Winter's Tale". Adam played multiple roles but his main role was Shepherd. He was hilarious! I was so proud of him. He also got a wonderful review.
Congrats to everyone in the MFA! You were all amazing!!!

It's the little things

I love being a mom. LOVE IT! I had someone ask me what I did all day and I wanted to laugh. I don't think anyone realizes how much work a baby is till they have one. The hours I spend talking, holding, singing, reading, feeding and rocking this boy are innumerable. And I am so grateful for it. I am so blessed to be able to be at home with him.

Look how cute his room is. Mostly because I have very crafty friends who know how to make lots of cute things!
Daddy and Xander love playing guitar and singing to each other!
