My Brother Got Hitched!

Greg and Sara got married in the Newport Beach Temple. They are such a beautiful and happy couple! Love you guys!

Quincey giving some love. As soon as they got close to us, Quincey ran up to them. It was very cute.

Christmas Morning

This is how we started our Christmas morning!! Presley was grumpy because we had to wake her up and Quincey didn't want to wake up!

I think Quincey was glad she woke up because...

...look what Santa brought for her and Pres!

The girls like their jeeps!

Look what Santa put in our stocking! I wonder why Santa didn't put anything in mommy's stocking? Daddy magically got something in his stocking...I thought I was nicer...

We were so grateful for the rainy, Christmas weather!

Christmas Eve with the Family

Here we are at our annual Christmas Eve dinner at Northwoods Inn. Growing up my immediate family would go to Bob's Big Boy every Christmas Eve. I always looked forward to that and then we would go see Christmas lights. As the years went on, Grandma joined us and she wasn't too fond of Bob's (plus it was going downhill) so we decided to go to Northwoods because it was close to her home. Grandma passed away but we are still going to Northwoods. But, thumbs down to my crab legs at Northwoods this year...not too good! Oh well, it was a great evening with family...and our newest member Sara!
Grandma and her girls!

The girls! My aunt Cathy, Quincey, my new sister in law Sara, my mom, Presley, me, my cousin Erin, and my cousin Taylor.

A girl and her mommy!

Quincey loves her Auntie Erin. Erin is great with my girls. She lives in San Francisco so she doesn't get to hang out with us a whole lot. It was nice seeing her at Christmas.

Christmas on Auntie and Uncle's Sea Cruz

We go down to Warren and Cathy's boat every Christmas to watch the boat parade. This year we decided to celebrate Cathy and Barry's birthday while we were down there. Here is Grandma meeting us at the entrance of the boat ramp.

Greg and Sara! They just got awesome! I have a new sis! I will post some pictures of their wedding a few blogs later!

Thanksgiving in Park City

We went to Park City to celebrate Thanksgiving with Barry's family this year. We had a great time with all the inlaws and cousins. No snow this year but still chilly for we Californians!

Grandpa Dan and Quincey!

Grandma Sue and the girls!

We had an exciting day on Thanksgiving. While I was getting ready, the smoke alarm went off...and it set off the house alarm and we couldn't get them off for 45 minutes! It was LOUD! When the house alarm went off, it automatically calls the fire department. The turkey got way excited in the oven and leaked into the stove and sent the oven smoking! It was kind of funny...and eventful. We told my mother in law it was going to be a Thanksgiving we will always remember! The turkey was great Sue! So we all took advantage of the fire truck and took pictures with it!

When the firemen got there, they gave the kids plastic fireman hats. They were way excited. This is Quincey and Maila sporting them...
