PERSONAL

Belated Merry Christmas!

12.30.2009

We just got home from a whirlwind visit home to my parents in the San Francisco Bay Area as well as a quick jaunt down to Disneyland. In the span of six days, we traveled on four airplanes, in the midst of a guy trying to blow up an international flight, crazy! But all is well with both my family and Cent and I. It was a fantastic time, which left little time to blog.

So here are our belated Christmas and holiday greetings!

I’m so thankful that we had no problems traveling. We made it out of Dallas the day before it snowed! Had we left a day later, we might not have made it to California. On Christmas Day, we took a flight with my parents and sister to Orange County to the Merriest Place on Earth!

It was the first time that we had been to Disneyland at Christmas time. It’s a Small World is so cool and worth the wait! The Haunted Mansion is transformed into the world of Jack Skellington and Nightmare Before Christmas. After going on the ride, I resolved to watch the movie. Yeah, I’ve never seen it in it’s entirety. Until tonight.

We’re showing that it’s -1 days til Christmas. Or 364. Whatever works for you.

My good friend and bridesmaid Krystle was able to join us in Disneyland, yay!

And it was seriously the COLDEST it’s ever been in Southern California. (Which for anyone who regularly experiences snow this time of year is like summer weather :) But you know us Californians…) Needless to say, I did not dress appropriately. By the time the sunset, we were all freezing. And at dinner, we ate at the Plaza Inn where there are outside heaters, except that we sat next to the one defunct heater, boo! I guess we brought the cold weather from Texas?

I received the awesomely fun Flip Video recorder from Cent. Like he literally read my mind. I was shocked and soooo excited! We made silly videos our entire trip!

And as for the fun recap of our trip to California for Christmas, here’s a video I put together using the Flip software. Easy peasy! Guest starring my parents and sister. And the not-so-little guy is my cousin who was also our ring bearer. He makes some hilarious faces and has some great dance moves!
