Lunch with the Zou's

Kimi and I met at girls camp (we were co-counslers)and have been super close ever since. When she got married a little over a year ago they moved to Utah so I haven't seen her since her wedding. Luckily she was here for the holidays and her and her family were able to meet me in Vacaville for lunch. Her son Jeremiah is 3 months old and the cutest thing ever. She and Allen are doing well and keeping super busy!

Christmas Eve

I can't believe Christmas has come and gone. It was great to spend it with family and friends!!! We really missed Jareds family and Stephens family.....I wonder if we'll ever be all together again! My family has a tradition of fondue once all our guest have left, this year it was almost ruined!! My mom normally buys the fondue (has for about 35 years)and this year she was really feeling sick. About 10 minutes before everyone is scheduled to arrive my mom, me and Scott were just sitting around talking about how much Apple cider we had for the night. I asked my mom if the cider was for all night long, or just for the fondue and she replied "Fondue??!? It's not new years eve! No one asked me to get fondue, I didn't buy any!" I totally thought she was kidding, but she wasn't. Scott and I ran to safeway and bought the last packages they had. I am sooooo glad they had some, I didn't want to be the one to tell dad we didn't have fondue!!! I don't think my mom will ever forget the fondue again!!!

We hope you all had a merry Christmas!!! May God bless you in everything!!!

Jon in Brazil

We got to talk to Jonathan yesterday and he sounds AWESOME!!! Very grown up already, I can't wait til he gets home!!! He said they don't really decorate for Christmas but he found this nativity scene and had to take a picture. He's living the rules and being blessed, they teach alot of people and he's doing well with the language. We miss him alot and can't wait to talk to him again on Mother's day!

Chico Christmas Lights

Last night the Nelson's, me and Scott went to tour the lights of Chico.....they were the same as last year, but Taylor and Isabella loved them. The saddest part was the last house, someone actually stole the baby Jesus. Someone is in TROUBLE!!

Creche festival in my house

I am addicted to Nativity scenes! It all started with my mom when we were kids, they were everywhere......and now they're in MY house EVERYWHERE. I have a total of 22 now and the number goes up every year. I just love how they make me feel when I look at them. Here are a few pictures of my favorite, or most unique sets. If you want to see them all then come on over!! Merry Christmas!

Merry Christmas

I stole this picture from Holly's blog but I just love it!!! I hope we all remember the true meaning of Christmas and may God bless us all!!
