I didn't do the best job of documenting our Christmas gatherings this year, but there were plenty. We were in Simi Valley twice, Santa Clarita, Arleta, and Santa Barbara. There was no shortage of family, friends, sugar, napping, catching up, or good conversations. Ever since Dave and I have been married, we've had the joy of getting to learn and celebrate the different expressions of family between our families.

The Swedish Fish candy cane ornamented tree @ Sam's right before
we opened gifts with mom and sister-in-love.
Oh, aside from great family time, there were plenty of four-legged friends too!

We hope you had a wonderful Christmas with your loved ones.
Can you believe it'll be next year next week?!
Are you doing anything exciting?
We're going to San Fran with some friends (yippeee!)--pictures to come :D.
