We can FINALLY and OFFICIALLY celebrate Christmas! I don’t have to be tempted by all you early birds who got into the holly jolly season before Thanksgiving. Turkey day has come and gone and it’s time to bust out the decorations. We had SUCH a great Thanksgiving. We celebrated with both sides of the family and then on black Friday some of Brad’s side of the family (and us too) all drove up to the lake house. The poor guys had to work the whole time fixing stuff up, but us girls and kids had a ball hanging out. I was very thankful for the Fall season, and I’m even more thankful that it’s now time for the Christmas season. To kick it off we held up another family tradition and visited Rogers Gardens in Newport Beach. Brad and I have gone every years since we’ve been married. We putz around, enjoy the Christmas decor, and pick out our ornament for that year. This year I picked out a cute matryoshka doll for the big tree and some cute gold fish ornaments to put on Samantha’s mini tree.

 P.S.
 Stay tuned, I have some fun stuff coming your way on my blog pretty soon ;)
