The Wild Animal Park

Condors are Cool!
For Christmas Gary got us all zoo passes so all 13 of us saddled up and hit the Safari Park. It was a bit hectic with strollers and kids and different peoples' opinions but we made it work and had a great time.

 Mimi got landed on by a Lorakeet at Lorakeet Landing.
Sweet matching sisters.

Its Christmas Time in the City

Christmas!!! We had the best one yet this year!!
 Ela in a pile of loot, all from Grama Shel & Grandpa Dave & Auntie Kelly.
 The weather was beautiful so we spent tons of time a la plage. Tasha is too cute in a swimsuit.
 Christmas Eve at Joe's Crab Shack with the Glaziers.
 Ela & Tyler picnicked under a table. They're such good buddies.
 The cousins! Ela's face is classic.
 We came out Christmas morning to Ela lining up and organizing her presents. She is sooo my child. She also requested to write a thank you note to Santa right away because she just loved all of her gifts and wanted him to know. Precious.
 She does smile! It took her until Christmas night to get opening presents and that she should be happy about them but once it clicked it was on.
 Christmas morning: the best smile we could get.
More beach! Christmas was so great this year I actually suffered a little postpartum depression when it was over. (Todd called me out on my grouchy and diagnosed me.) Luckily it will be here again before we know it!
