Karl and I are from the same place: The Imperial Valley of Southern California. Both our families still live there. So the decision of where to go for Christmas is an easy one, home. We make the drive every year gladly and we love to spend time with the families. The problem often is, with which family when. We do all we can to not miss any family activities. It is really hard every year. I get stressed more than anybody…mostly because I am a total baby. So to both of our families and to everyone we saw at Christmas time…we love you, and thank you all for making the holiday such a happy one!
The following blogs are an effort to tell the stories of the two Christmases we had at Christmas. One final note, the pictures from Christmas morning at the Pipkin’s house were generously donated by my little sister Chelsea. (thanks belle you are the best.)
