More Visitors... Suedy and Alfonso came to town!!

Suedy and Alfonso came and voila! our house was instantly filled with warmth, laughter and fun! Harrison reveled in all the attention from his adopted auntie and uncle and was especially happy mommy and daddy relaxed a little on the i pad restrictions so Alfonso could show him all the coolest games! 

First night - dinner at Iberia, a Spanish restaurant. I don't know what I enjoyed more, the food or listening to Suedy and Alfonso order our dinner without us understanding ONE WORD! The paella was insane!

We also visited Huddart Park, one of our favorite spots to take visitors! I love this girl so much, how did I get so lucky?

The boys spent some quality time together watching the model airplanes fly and visiting the TESLA dealership...Harrison could not have been happier!
We topped off the visit with a Gingerbread House decorating session before the trip back to the airport!
Needless to say, Harrison was NOT happy to see them go... it was very sad (for all of us)

Thank  you Suedy and Alfonso for coming and for this adorable video! We can't wait for the next visit!!

Visitors Continued...Grammy and Grandpa time!!

I love these two.  I couldn't have hand picked in-laws that I love, respect and appreciate more.  One of the most difficult things about being up here, is being away from Grammy and Grandpa.  We loved the time we got to spend with them recently and are so happy that they are coming back to celebrate Christmas with us! Here are a few of my favorite photos from their visit...

Grammy and Grandpa, we adore you. Thank you for always being there for us and for your constant love and support!

Giving Thanks for Visitors!

We had such a wonderful Thanksgiving holiday! This house was filled with family and nothing is more healing for me!

First, Chelsea spent a few days here for some much needed mother-daughter time right before Thanksgiving. It was so great to have my sister here. We did some early Christmas shopping in San Francisco, talked and talked and ate and ate!! It was perfect and I am ready for her to come back!

Only a day after Chelsea left, Dax, Sanam and their family, Zak, Kelli and their family and Ric showed up to celebrate Thanksgiving weekend with us. Thanksgiving is definitely one of my favorite holidays and this was one I will never forget.

We did The Muppets, we did Huddart Park, we did Questa Park, we feasted, we played games and we had a blast!
