This year Jason and I spent Christmas Eve and Christmas Day with the Rowell side of the family :-) Traditionally, we spend Christmas Eve with my family, then make the 2.5 hr drive home to be with his family. However, this is the first year that we were unable to visit my family due to Jason's wacky work schedule this holiday. In this economy, we are very thankful for his job, so I didn't do too much complaining :-) (Well, I tried not to anyways!)
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!!)

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.
