Christmas in Los Angeles

I've been asked more than a dozen times over the last 18 months about Christmas in LA, what's it like, how can it even feel like Christmas, isn't it weird that it's us Pennsylvania natives, yes, it is a bit odd but you can't argue with this

I miss you already, SoCal and we still have seven more months here.

Merry Christmas, dear friends and loved ones.

That time of year again

When Disneyland turns merry and it snows in Southern California.  Disney magic at it's finest. 

We were treated to a few Christmas songs from Trisha Yearwood!  They were filming for  "Disney Parks Frozen Christmas Celebration" to air on Christmas morning.  
 And then of course, there's Woody.  No trip to Disney in complete without some time with Woody.  Lucy loves him so much and I will indulge her in this for as long as she likes.  It never, ever gets old.

The parade!  Christmas style!

And of course, the fireworks, oh the fireworks.  Disney always gets this right.

And of course the snow, only at Disney could it "snow". 

Thanks, Disney.  Your magic continues to mesmerize all of us. 
We'll be back soon.  Until next time.

So you will always remember

Today, my littles, you are 8,5 and 4 years old.  You are in the throws of childhood, the very best days.  I remember a little bit about 8.  But not very much.  5 and 4 though, I've got nothin'!  Your Dad and I do our best to provide you with lots of life experiences and memorable moments.  Will you remember all the trips to Disneyland or traveling across the country in a cramped minivan or endless days spent by the sea?  I'm not sure.  I do know, though, that these experiences will shape who you will become and that is enough for me.

Sailing up and down the coast of Southern California.  That's something I want you to remember.  Sitting on the very back of a 36 foot sailboat with your feet in the water in the middle of the Pacific Ocean, Mama by your side, I want you to remember that too.  These moments deserved to be documented. To be captured.  So you will always remember.

And I will never forget.


Thank you, Lord, for these opportunities.  For these moments. For these magical times with our children. 

Beyond grateful.
