Everything is cheery here as we get closer and closer to Christmas. Orelia and I hosted a holiday party/play date for all our toddler friends recently and had a blast.
The party included secret Santa gifts as well as a cookie exchange. Everyone was supposed to leave with a tin full of cookies, but somehow we ended up with roughly 200 cookies left on our counter. Yum and whoa.
My parents were here for two weeks and just left to fly back East. We were able to celebrate both my dad's birthday (with chocolate cake) and Christmas (with prime rib) a little early.
Part of my parents' visit was spent moving them into their new condo, which is walking distance from our house.
Orelia has gotten so close with her Grandpa ("bap-pa") and Noni ("nana"), and we are so blessed they were able to get a place out here to spend extra time.
The stockings are hung by the coat closet with care and our Christmas pjs are folded and waiting to be worn. John's mom and brother are here and we can't wait to celebrate!
