Christmas Eve was a beautiful night.
Our punks at mass.
Alert the media: We all sat through the mass, IN THE CHURCH, from start to finish.
I called the local paper.
We donated $26 for the victims of the Connecticut tragedy. A small effort, but I hope our kids understood why.
Night Before Christmas followed.
And, each kiddo got to open one gift.
Time to prepare for Santa!
Little ones quickly fell asleep in my arms as Carter and Blake threw rocks on the roof to mimic reindeer and rang bells outside their window to sound like Santa.
And, a gorgeous Christmas sunset finished the day.
A day or so after, a special delivery was made to Laine.
Lamby, her beloved friend from birth. Left in NYC. We were all a total mess over this loss.
We called the hotel. And, called. And, called. We were told "No" and still called.
FINALLY, they found it.
We were all in tears!
Zoo Lights at the San Diego Zoo were fun, as always.
Christmas has come and gone. I opened our store at 6am the day after. Crowds were kinder than expected.
Little ones are busy with new Ipads. Carter is even busier with his PS3.
Here's to a quiet house and hopefully seeing them in 2013!
