Christmas Tree farm….and Happy New Year!!

Hi everyone! I can’t believe it’s 2018 already! Happy New Year! I really hope everyone had a wonderful holiday season. We had a great time getting together with our family and friends in Southern California and we are extremely grateful for the down time we had to connect with people we love.

Before we took off to So Cal, we visited a charming Christmas Tree Farm in Castro Valley. It was a gloomy day and by the time we got there the sunlight was mostly gone. And of course my daughter Cassidy was so tired so she would rather nap in the van than checking out the farm. But my boy Gus Gus (August) was excited to explore the farm.

I really like this silly, funny looking expression he had.

He is at the cute age where he would totally stand still and ‘cheese’ for the camera. I know it won’t last long but rest assure that I will milk it as long as I can.

First attempt of a family photo.  Kids = unhappy. 

I totally get it. Cassidy was still sleepy. Gus would rather keep exploring the tree farm than being held by his mama.

After a while, the sun was practically gone and it was super chilly. We were leaving the tree farm and my friend Jamie encouraged me to give ourselves another attempt of taking family photos since Cassidy was more awake.  I am so glad she pushed us to do it…

Because we got these following shots!

Yay! A picture perfect one!

But this one is really my favorite – with the kids smiling so big and with gus gus’ blankie tucked onto Daniel’s hip! Haha! (Thanks Jamie for taking the photos for us!)

I’m looking forward to making more memories with my family. I’m both looking forward to and NOT looking forward to my kids growing up.  I wish they could stay cute and small like this forever. But I really don’t. I want them to grow and thrive in life. Parenthood drives me crazy.

Happy 2018! Here’s to another year of growth and wonders.
