I do have to say "We missed Santa this year!" (Please don't be offended if you don't believe in Santa...we don't either but it's a Salazar tradition). Every Christmas Eve, Santa makes a stop at Grandma Salazar's house (my mom) ... the kids missed it BUT they didn't forget to reminded me that at Grandma's house they always open presents on Christmas Eve...Yes, Ryan reminded me soooooo much that he almost didn't get Christmas LOL!! All the kids opened a few presents that night.
Here are a few pictures of Christmas morning. We didn't go too crazy on presents since we surprised Meg, Ryan & Korbin with Disneyland passes this year. (Actually, Korbin is 2 so he gets in FREE!! Yeah for us!!)
Daddy enjoying & helping the boys open presents
Korbin got a new guitar & drums, and Ryan got a guitar too!
We have lots of musicians in the house ... we need to start on some lessons.

Christmas night was spent at our timeshare ... it was nice getting out again. Meg & Ryan enjoyed their own big beds... here are a few pictures. We also had a great view of Disneyland's firework show that night.

We had such a nice night out...The Italian restaurant was great! And, it's not often that we get lucky in finding someone to babysit 3 kids... thanks Dad!!! We would have loved to do an over-night (since we had plans on staying at our new resort in the downtown Disney area (we're timeshare owners :-) but I know that was pushing our luck. We picked up the kids after a few hours and off we went to the nice 2-bedroom condo resort. Once we got there, the kids ate popcorn and we all stayed up late, slept in the next morning, and had a nice breakfast at Denny's. We plan on doing this again on Christmas Day, after we celebrate the morning with family!!

Volvo got beat up and the front axle of the truck is gone!
Originally, the lady was immediately handcuffed when the Sheriff arrived, later to be un-handcuffed and transported to the hospital...something was up with her, she was wearing black sunglasses (there was no sun out and it was raining...hhmm) and she was staggering ALL over the place!!! I'm not an investigator, but something seemed to be up with this poor lady!

Well, Happy, Happy Birthday dear Sister!! I left her a message but I'm thinking she hasn't returned my call since she's back East somewhere with her 10 yr old daughter, who runs cross country and is competing. I did hear, from my sister Nancy, that my niece came in 13th place out of about 250 girls!! Wow. I'll post pictures if I can get my hands on some, and I will post a picture of my sister in the next day or so. By the way, my niece is one of the best in California and that's one of the reasons she travels to other states to compete...she can outrun girls even in divisions older than her!! Way to go Sonia!!

The sweet moment was just that… he no sooner wanted to jump on/off the bed, sit on my lap, climb on my chair, throw books across the bed, and after reading him the same book 3x and trying to convince him that I needed to do homework…I finally gave up...now, he's trying to play Ryan's XBox...lol...
