Christmas 2010

We had so much fun sharing our Christmas traditions with our sweet baby girl.  Experiencing the holidays with a little one is one of the many things I fantasized about when I was pregnant with Avery. Decorating the tree at home, walking around the neighborhood to see the decorated houses and visiting Santa for the first time, were some of the things I was looking forward to.
Blending mine and Alex's family traditions has been fairly simple and has worked well for us over the years. We spend Christmas Eve at my Oma's house in Carson with my dad's family, then Christmas morning we have breakfast at Alex's parent's house in San Juan and head up to Newport for Christmas dinner with Pat and Al and Ken's family.
Lots of places to go means lots of good food, wine and PRESENTS!!  Avery had a great time being involved in the gift opening and got some really great stuff. We can't wait until next year when she can rip open paper and cause a little bit more trouble :)
Enjoy the pictures!
