Well Let's see....... Christmas was Awesome... Christmas Eve We went to church and came home and let Joshua's open a few presents . We sang Happy Birthday to Jesus and enjoyed our evening. We had great appetizers. I made egg-rolls and sliders. My mom and dad were here and enjoyed watching Joshua. Before we went to bed we left cookies for Santa and carrots for the reindeer. We woke up Christmas morning and Joshua could not believe his eyes he was so excited that Santa had came. He didn't even care about the presents he was more interested in how he got down the chimney and if he liked his cookies!!! Then he started opening his gifts and Santa got him a blue power ranger he has been wanting one all season and lots of other goodies too. My Santa bought me a new wedding ring. so mom had a fabulous Christmas too..... We were going to have a nice prime rib dinner with all the trimmings but when we opened the roast it was ROTTEN YES ROTTEN EWWWW...... It was gross... So we didn't really care especially my mom and I .....Now we weren't going to spend all day in the kitchen making dinner. We just decided to have appetizers all day and hang out in our pajamas. The rotten roast created a new tradition in our family.
We are NEVER going to have a big fancy dinner and get all dressed up again.We are going to stay in our jammer's and have finger food. Works for me . It was the best Christmas EVER.... We did get our money back for the roast on the 26th .... We then packed up our van on Friday and headed for Orange County to spend Raima's vacation with his family . He only gets one true 2 week vacation a year and it always the last 2 weeks of December. I think we are going to take a family trip next and enjoy it a little more....We had a great time with his siblings and Joshua's cousins. We had a gift exchange on friday night. Saturday morning we woke up and went to High School Musical on Ice it was a great show..Then we came home and had a WII party!!!! The WII is so fun !!!! Sunday we didn't do much just hung around the house and Raima went fishing in Corona. Monday we played the WII all day and watched Jeremiah. He is so cute . Such a good boy!!!!! Tuesday Jeremiah had to go to the Dr and Lika came over and took me out to lunch and we came home and you guessed it played the WII!!!!!We were supposed to go home Tuesday evening but we got on the road and on our way home and we were so sad to leave the fun and Joshua was begging us to turn around.We DID and to Auntie Sa'a surprise we came back and decided to stay the New-Year. Glad we did. We spent New Year's Eve on the Santa Ana block and had a lot of fun.Thursday morning we woke up and drove to Long Beach and had a fabulous Brunch at Shawne and Jeff's house in Long Beach.It was SO nice. We had King crab legs, dungess crab, crab potato salad, shrimp scampi, octopus, squid, seaweed salad, shrimp pasta,raw tuna(OKA) smoked turkey legs and bbq'd chicken It was a great way to bring in the new year.We drove home after brunch and a nap.
