Christmas Number Two!










This year was Ty and I's second Christmas married and our turn to be with the Andre Family in California. It was my first Christmas away from home and as hard as it was to be away from family... it was so fun to share such a special time of year with my second family. Christmas Eve was spent at the Suman's and we went caroling to the poor firemen who had to work. Then there was Christmas morning and a picture of us with a few of our presents and the presents we gave to Ty's family. Ty's Aunt Kelly comes down from Utah and spend Christmas in California and it was a blast to have her there. She also hooked us up with a little cookie decorating and it was honestly my favorite activity. (I decided that I want to decorate cookies for just about every holiday!) Lastly, what would a Christmas in California be like with out a trip to the beach? We didn't go on Christmas day because it was raining like crazy, but we went the Saturday after. It is always fun to see Ty smile when he digs his toes into the sand. This year Ty and I had a pretty big Christmas. The excited Baker grandparents gave us a crib and The excited Andre grandparents gave us a video camera! Ty and I have said over and over again to each other how thankful we are for every single gift we received on Christmas. We are definitely spoiled, but even more important we are thankful for eternal families. We are so excited for our new little girl to come into our lives and for the wonderful families she is going to be a part of. As we contemplate the birth of our Savior we also turn our hearts to the wonderful gift each baby is.  We couldn't have had a better second Christmas.
