Christmas Time is Here...

 The house is decorated, the gifts are wrapped, Christmas music is on and Jesus' Birthday is near! We are so thrilled and enjoying it all...

Holton's 1st Christmas - He is so excited! 

 This year was extra fun because our best friends the Williams live next door so Jason had a buddy to hang out with while putting up the Christmas lights. The kids had fun running around and being apart of everything as well.

We had a super fun night at Tim and Lindsay's new house making gingerbread houses. We stayed up late, played the game twister, did steam roller on the floor and laughed the night away. The girls and Holton are lucky to have such awesome Aunties and Uncles in their lives.  

Every year we are always impacted and absolutely love our annual tradition where we feed the homeless down in San Diego with our friends. The girls and I baked cookies and prepared little gifts to hand out. We are still talking about the lives that we encountered that day - how we can always be thinking of others in need and how grateful we are.  

We have been having fun looking at Christmas lights, go on outings with friends, Christmas dinners and parties. We love this season! 

Holton is 7 Months...

7 Months and time is passing by so quickly. Holton is a true light in our home and we all fight over his wet kisses. You better be careful though because he might end up biting you since he is teething. He has gotten his top 4 and 2 bottom teeth already. He is the best baby who goes with the flow and hardly ever cries. His nickname is “Little Man” and prefers his Mama over anyone. He has been awesome at eating solid baby food and eats whatever we feed him. He now sleeps 12 hour stretches 6pm-6am and falls fast asleep when we lay him in his crib. He has had a hard month with back-to-back ear infections and multiple colds but we are hoping this is the last. Fingers Crossed! Holton doesn't stay in one spot any longer - he is a great roller and sits like a champ now. His favorite afternoon activity is going to get the mail down the street in his blue car and look at all the wonder outside. We love our Little Man with all our hearts and can’t imagine life without our little boy.

Fun Times Just Hanging Out -

What we absolutely love to do is be together as a family. We spend most of our days hanging out - playing, going to the park, going on adventures, taking a walk around the neighborhood, home-schooling or heading down to the beach. So grateful for this life.

Holidays - Thanksgiving 2015

I can't believe the Holidays are here already and the year 2015 is coming to a close. It's so hard to believe that my little boy is 6 months old, and my girls are 3 and 6! Time is passing by quickly. It's easy to be so excited about the future, but it can also be a little sad when you realize that it is going by too fast. Let us always soak in as many of our days, hours, and each little memory that we can.

To start off the Holidays we had a wonderful Thanksgiving at the Whites, with delicious food, a beautiful table with special place-setting treasures, and bounce houses for the kids. It was a complete blast and a joy to be with all of the cousins and family. 

The following day we gathered at the Troncones with a table set for 22. We all sat around the table chatting and enjoying all of the tasty food as well. We did our annual Troncone traditions - we wrote in the Thankful Book, spent some time sharing what each person is grateful for this year, and sang praise songs. We were sure full and happy. 

Jason and I say it all the time, but we cannot say it enough - we are so grateful for both of our families, and how much we all love each other, and how we all love being together. It is such a rare and special treasure!

It is so fun to see each year the kids growing up and multiplying
What a joy!
