Christmas Day

Christmas Day

Christmas morning was spent opening presents, eating breakfast and having fun. Mom got a new camera...a D90 (I am so jealous!!!) but I got a new lens for my camera! Jourdan opened tons of matchbox cars and Anna got American Girl outfits and accessories. The best part...we were all together.

This is the first time that we have celebrated Christmas with just us and all of us. Usually someone is missing. Mom had all her kids and grandkids here for Christmas morning. Even Eaan! It's been a good six months living at home. I think we all appreciated being together more than when we were growing up. Chris and I especially, since we have moved out and then back home. 2009 is going to be full of changes. Jourdan, Layla and I are leaving on Wednesday to move back to San Diego with Eaan. The house will be really quiet without us! That might be a nice change for my mom though. She is going to miss us. Tommy will be going to college in the summer and Chris is planning on moving in the summer too. Anna will be the only one left. We will all be out doing other things, living our lives, so it was nice to be here these past months and spend the time with my family before my brothers and I go our separate ways. Sure, we will see each other but it will be different.

Christmas Day was spent with family. It started out with just us, then we saw Eaan's aunt and uncle's family and then we went to visit with my stepdad's family. Some people don't like visiting everyone on Christmas Day but I love it! We didn't get to see everyone but we will definitely celebrate Christmas with Eaan's family in Phoenix when we get out to San Diego. And of course to all our other family members we don't get to see often...we love you!

Christmas Day with the Morris'

This was Great Grandmom Carol's red chair when she was a little girl. Including Layla, I believe there have been four generations that have sat in the chair.

Guess what Chris got for Christmas!?! An iPod!

Doing what I love...taking pictures, with a bow. Hey, what can I say. I was in the Christmas spirit!

Hanging out with the fam. I think Layla almost got crushed once...no one could see her. :) That probably because they were jumping over the couch...

MoChunk has a special place in my heart. The red chair and the red dress photo - priceless! Love the Navy shirt with the holiday jammie bottoms. What a blessing to have captured the essence of family in one photo (everyone laughing next to the three after being mauled by Jourdan). Hope your travels back to SD were safe and most importantly - uneventful.

Love,
