This is what happens when you forget to take a family picture at the beginning of the night!

Rylee is an animal lover, me not so much, but she is. When we were up in Riverside for Thanksgiving Aunt Pam and Erin offered to take her horse back riding and now she is obsessed. During Christmas break, they offered again and she was over the moon.
|Gifts are great and I am thankful for all I have but it really is the people you surround your self with that is gift enough for me. I love having Christmas up in Riverside and being with family. Baking, watching the kids run around the backyard (and not watching TV) checking for chicken eggs, riding horses, going to NORMS, and going to see the Mission Inn lights. Holiday traditions I vow to continue. The holiday's this year were a little off without Mimi, she really was the nucleus of our little family. But, we made it through, Mom and Dad made our Christmas memorable and like we keep saying this is our "new normal" I am excited for my new nephew to join the party next year and to keep making holiday memories through the traditions that we have kept over the years!!|
