Oh, What Fun!
Like many of you, I am finally sitting down for the first time in what seems like weeks. I'm not complaining, though. This has been a marvelous Christmas season, which I know is truly not over. It's only the second day of Christmas, afterall!
Instead of trying to remember where it all began, I am starting with today and working my way back as I have time. Today, then, was wonderful. Our fabulous friends the deGrassie's gave up a morning with their family and drove the awful drive from Bakersfield to Visalia to spend some time with us. We had coffee and sat around playing with the kids, sharing the holiday news, and opening presents, which did not disappoint. Here are a few favorite photos from the morning:

These are probably my all-time favorite pictures of Anna. She, as you may know, loves our cat Calla. Her relationship with Calla has been, up to this point, purely long distance. Today she was able to meet her, but as Calla is not the friendliest cat, we kept her at a distance. Anna sat in front of the door having a grand time watching "Cow-la" and telling us all about it. Anna also is sporting the adorable cat hat we gave her. I was so glad she finally gave in and tried it on!
Nick is growing so fast and is such a beautiful boy. It was fun seeing him in person again, although the poor guy was not feeling too hot. He still managed to be pretty happy, though.
