On Christmas eve our friends the Dimayas came over for lunch and festivities. Calla and Bryn had made sugar cookies that the kids loved decorating and delivering to neighbors.
The weather was a little overcast with a breeze. We gathered against the cliffs and ate sausage, shrimp, potato salad and fresh summer fruit. Max and Maya (especially Max) also consumed quite a bit of sand.
In the end Max won the covered-in-sand competition. I didn't get a photo but his entire face was black, but at that point we decided it was time to try and shower off and head back home.
Merry Christmas to all our friends and family!
We are grateful for this time of year to help us remember and recognize our blessings. We are thankful for the love we feel as a family, the support we receive from those close by and far away. We are especially grateful for the sacrifice of our Savior and the comfort and joy that the gift of his life and atonement bring to our family.
