Christmas 2013

Yes, that's right. Tonight I am ignoring the pile of laundry and sticky floors and getting around to posting pictures from Christmas two years ago. It was our last Christmas in Claremont. The next day we drove to San Francisco to go to a BYU football game and then drove to Sacramento to visit Robert's Grandma and Aunt Debbie's family. On the drive back from that trip is when Robert got his new job offer and we decided to move to Utah. So once we got home we went straight into packing mode and I never got around the blogging, and then we packed up the computer and I couldn't get to the pictures.

We decided to stay in Claremont and have Christmas on our own for the first time. Now I am glad we did because it was the only and last Christmas we had in our Claremont house. The night before we acted out the Nativity.

 Then Julia slept upstairs in our room on a mattress on the floor because she was afraid she would wake up when Santa came and be scared. And we were afraid she would wake up when Santa came...

Morning time with little Micah and little bitty Camden.

 Coming down the stairs.

Julia got her guitar, and an arm chair full of other gifts.

 Micah got a train set and that Dodgers hat in the background that he loves.

Two weeks later all those toys were packed up and we didn't see them again for almost nine months. It was like Christmas all over again when we finally unpacked since they didn't really remember what they had gotten.

We also visited the Los Angeles Temple with Steve and Wendy's family. We miss our L.A. relatives and will miss palm trees covered in Christmas lights and jacket wearing weather for Christmas.
