Life is funny....

You know, life is funny. It's not ever what I expect it to be but it somehow ends up better than I could have imagined. I feel so blessed to have a knowledge and belief in my life that leads and guides the decisions I make in my life. I feel like God has directed my life in a way that could not be better and one that I never would have been able to see.

Life is such a beautiful gift.

Every year around Christmas (well any Holiday really) I would feel a little badly about our lack of children. We wanted a baby so badly and it seemed that the Holidays would just bring out that longing so much more.

This year we got to live that dream for the first time. I have to tell you, it was AMAZING!

Xander loved his first Christmas outfit from his Nana. Thanks Nana!
We got to run up to Utah for the day to be with my family for Christmas. Here is a picture of Christmas morning. Jon, my little brother, is holding Xander and the adorable Sami is with them. She is SUPER excited for Christmas morning.

Merry Christmas everyone! I hope your Holiday was merry and bright!

Adam's Next Project

Adam just got done with his first semester and the next day he started into rehearsal for this lovely show. It is being directed by Jeff Calhoun with music and lyrics by Paul Gordon.

Adam is meeting so many amazing people and having some pretty incredible opportunities down here.

If you are going to be in San Diego between mid Jan-beginning of March you MUST see this!

Merry Christmas!!!!

We went to Balboa Park and got to take some family photos.

So fun to have a little one around for the holidays. Xander LOVES to look at lights. He gets mesmerized.
Xander loves his Daddy! They are best buddies.
I'm pretty fond of him myself!
Hope your are all having a magical holiday season!

Xander and Santa

So on Peggy and Amber's last day here, we went and saw Santa. He was not that jolly, but it might have been a long day.
A few days later we met up with Victor and Dorian at Coronado Island. The cupcakes and hot chocolate were delicious!
Then we stood in line and Dorian and Xander got to meet Santa!!! They had a blast and so did Victor and I.
