The holidays were wonderful and these are just a few of the highlights:
Christmas Eve included time with Grammyand an all around toast to a year that has changed us.
We feel the absence of one special personbut still we gather to ease the pain and focus on the family we do have.Paul learned how to play Hangman.
Then we spent some time walking through Naples to admire the lights and the little ones wore their new jammies.
We woke up to a Christmas morning filled with surprises.
We are going with two traditions around here:
new jammies on Christmas Eve and stockings full of love.Olivine loved her chapstick and lotion
Paul was requesting a watch, a clock, and a calculator which cracks me up. Although Olivine insisted the calculator was a “baby iPod.”Henry is good with anything. He likes unwrapping more than anything else.
I was given an array of nail polish
along with an opportunity to visit the papa salon with my boys in the living room.
It was deluxe!
Then we headed outdoors to climb on rocks near the water, met a fisherman who showed up the clams he uses for bait,
came home for naps and went back out during the sunset at the park. Just being mellow and grateful for California sunshine.It really felt like a summer day.Sometimes there are moments where I glimpse heaven, and this season has been one of those. Really Beautiful.
