Christmas with The PRDZ

For the Prdz, Christmas begins on the 23rd.
We meet up with my Gpa & Gma Saunders and family for dinner 
at the Mission Inn. It is always a treat and we love catching up with 
everyone. Titus was not afraid of Santa this year. Go Titus.

This is a cute pic of the Prd family. I love Tidy's heart booty 
which was probably cuter than his face at the time because 
he was definitely tired and grumpy :)

Christmas Eve was delightfully busy. We spent time with Justin's family 
and went to the Sandals Church Christmas Eve service. We had so much 
fun having a traditional tortilla soup dinner. After the awesome church service 
we had a midnight breakfast with Justin's parents and spent good 
time with Titus' auntie and uncle visiting from Chicago. 
Justin and I love watching Titus have fun with them.

Christmas Morn part 1: The Prd home. Titus had a great early 
morning face. He enjoyed opening his gifts and he was pretty 
good with ripping paper and emptying bags.

Justin got me a vintage yellow chair which I absolutely love! 
We got Titus his first red wagon. 

Christmas Morn part 2: The Saunders Home. We love spending time with my 
parents and fam. One of the best gifts was given to my mom. My dad took 
a piece of wood from my mom's childhood house and made it into a growth 
stick for their grandkids. I painted an orange with blossoms on the top to 
symbolize the orange grove my mom grew up on. My mom cried. 
My dad gets the award for the most heart warming gift :)

My Gma and Gpa Ricker. My Gma just recovered from hip surgery. 
Go Gma! So glad she's doing better!

Jojo enjoying the day.

We spent a relaxing Christmas afternoon with my Gma & Gpa Shoe. 
We got to have some quality time with our aunts, uncles & cousins. 
Here is one of my cousins, Grace. Love this girl!

Justin and I feel so blessed to have had such a great Christmas. 
Spending time with all our family and church is such a joy! 
Jesus has truly blessed us all by coming to this earth. It would be a 
sad thing to only remember and reflect on Jesus' birth at Christmas 
time. It's a story of amazing Hope and we should remember it often :)
