We had a lovely Christmas. Christmas Eve we had Daniel's family come over for a big ham and potatoes meal. We played games and read Luke 2. Dan's parents and brother Erik stayed the night so we could have Christmas morning together. It was a lot of fun. I loved watching Marston come down the stairs to see that Santa came. I can't wait for more years to come.
I got to have 2 of my brothers visit. Isaac and Jenn and Adam and Julie came a couple days after Christmas. It was so fun to laugh with them. I miss being around them. It's always an adventure-never a dull moment. We hung out, went into the city, went up to Placerville and just visited. I feel really lucky to have brothers that would take the time and spend the money to visit their sister.
January 2nd we blessed Hazel. She was a doll. Slept through the whole thing. Daniel gave her a beautiful blessing. I feel blessed to have a worthy priesthood holder as a husband to bless the lives of our children. We had family and friends over after for a little lunch. I loved it! Lots of people and lots of yummy food.
Christmas is over. Decorations are down. Another year has started. My house feels a little cold and empty but it's nice to have a new beginning.

|This is the only proof that I have that my brothers Adam and Isaac and their wives, Julie and Jenn came to visit. We spent the day in San Francisco. Here we are riding the cable cars.|
|Marston loved riding the "choo-choo".|
