Nolan woke up at 4:45 Christmas morning and would not go back to sleep so we ended up heading over to my parents a little earlier then expected. He fell asleep in the car and he stayed like this until 9 o'clock.
But I think his favorite present was the this dog that my brother got. He loves this doggy!!! He freaks out whenever we go over there and shouts "Doggg" over and over.
After Christmas we were able to go to California with some friends and their family. We had so much fun. It was the first time we had left Nolan for more than a night. I was surprised that I didn't get too home sick for him. Of course I missed him like crazy but not as bad as I had thought. Probably because we stayed nice and busy. We rode bicycles around the bay, went on a boat ride and had so much fun. I forgot my camera most of the trip so I stole these from Chandra's blog.
We found this photo-booth at the mall and had the bright idea to try to fit us all in. It was a little tight but so fun. We were laughing so hard the whole time.
We got home just in time for New Year's Eve where we spent it with some other friends. Nolan made it all the way to midnight. I was shocked.
I love the start of a new year. Making goals and plans to better yourself. I think my focus this year is going to be on my relationships. To make new and lasting friendships and richen the ones that I already have. Thanks to all of you for adding so much to my life and bringing me so much comfort and joy.
