I love this picture because it has 2 of Crew's favorite things in it...Toby Dog and Crew's best bud Cody. Crew loves following Cody around and copying everything he does.

This year we drove up to Granite Bay, California for Christmas with my side of the family. It was one of the craziest Christmas' yet with our family. We just have so many people in our family now that opening presents and trying to focus on one person at a time is nearly impossible. It is always so much fun when we all get together though. We went to San Fransisco, shopped a lot, ate a lot, cooked, played games....lots of Settlers, played pool, went hot tubing and stayed up late sitting by the fire drinking hot cocoa and just talking. We had such a great Christmas and miss everyone already! Sorry for the random order of pictures...
