Christmas Morning

It was very mellow at the Garcez home since most of us were sick. We decided to stay home and have a low key Christmas. We first opened all the presents that Santa had left and then moved on to presents from all the Grandma and Grandpas. Once Lexi got her bike, all she wanted to do is ride it. But since it was cold we had her wait till noon to ride it. She loves her bike, and that's all she talks about!! I think Santa got her exactly what she wanted!! Gavin on the other hand was so sick he didn't care on way or another. Merry Christmas!!

Christmas Eve Tradition

Tonight we did our normal tradition of having everyone open one gift, which is always PJ's. This way, we all wake up and open presents in our new jammies. Tomorrow we will be laying low since everyone is sick except for Chris, which I am sure he will get it in time! ' Tis the season!!
Gavin wanted nothing to do with this...poor baby is sick!!

Merry Christmas

May the miracle of Christmas fill your heart with warmth and love. Christmas is the time of giving and sharing. It is the time of loving and forgiving. Merry Christmas to Everyone!!
Warm those hearts with a yummy dessert!!

Lerxi's Gingerbread House

Last week at Playgroup, we had the kids make their very own gingerbread house. They all had so much fun decorating their own house. I think more candy ended in their mouths instead of on the gingerbread house. Anyway you look at it, we all had a great time!!


Santa Baby

This year for our trip to Santa was so much better than least year. Gavin wanted nothing to do with Santa once again, but this time he didn't' cry but he also was not smiling. Lexi on the other hand loved telling Santa everything she wanted....and I mean everything!!! Girl Santa has a budget!!

Check out the link below to see the message from Santa!

The Happiest Place on Earth

Disneyland is truly The Happiest Place on Earth. This year was a little different from last time; we were wearing our jackets instead of short sleeves for starters. We did miss the storm completely which was great. The skies were blue but very cold for Southern California. We all had a wonderful time at Disneyland and cannot wait till next year. Here's a few of our 300 plus pictures....enjoy!!

We asked Lexi what she wanted on her hat and she picked Mooney!!
We met up with Janet and her kids for dinner at the Rain Forest Cafe. It was great to see them all. Thanks guys for traveling up to have dinner with us.

An Olive for Gavin

The other day I opened up a can of olives and taught Gavin how to stick them on his finger and then eat them. The first few tries he was not successful, but after a handful he became an instant pro. He would laugh every time he would get one on his finger...it was so adorable to watch him. Enjoy!!

Thanksgiving 2009

Wow, it's Thanksgiving Day already and there are so many things we are Thankful for. So we packed up and drove to Cheryl and Tom's for dinner. It couldn't have been a more perfect day; the weather was beautiful and the turkey was flavorful. All the kids were having a ball running around their park-like backyard. We are so Thankful for our family!! Happy Thanksgiving everyone!!

Jamie got a new camera and is thinking about changing careers!!
