CA in December

We decided to take an early Christmas trip (as in the beginning of December) to CA this year to avoid crazy ticket prices. Joshua is in school and so could not join us, so I had the pleasure of taking my two small children through the insane airport security all by myself. Just FYI, you will not receive any help at SeaTac unless you are wheelchair bound or do not speak English. Nonetheless, we made it safe and sound and thoroughly enjoyed our visit.

First stop was my Dad (or Matthew's "one Grandpa")'s place. We livened the place up with all three grandkiddos and the grown-ups too. Caleb and Matthew were so stinking adorable together. As soon as he walked in the door, Matthew said, "Hi Caleb. I came on an airplane." Without missing a beat Caleb responded, "Hi Matthew. I brought trains." And that was that. They played on Grandpa's train track (the edge of his kitchen rug) and talked about all things train.
Next stop was San Diego to visit with the Muellers. Matthew was a model two year old - hair pulling, screaming, naughtiness galore. Sigh. There were many happy moments of play time with these cute cousins and plenty of great adult conversations. Oh how I wish we lived closer to these closest-in-age cousins!

Last stop was Uncle Dave and Aunt Stella's to hang out with Magum's side of the family. There was lots more play time with sweet Caleb and plenty of crazy hugs with Magum.

Ten days FLEW by with hardly enough time to see everyone. Sorry if we missed you ... we'll be back in June. :)
