All the stockings were hung...

Happy New Year, everyone! We hope you enjoyed happy holidays with friends and family. As you know, we were lucky enough to host both families this year! The Deals joined us from December 21-26 and then the Martys were here from Dec 27 until this morning. All in all, we're tired but happy to report a wonderful, fun-filled ten days. Seeing as how we have over 300 photos from our ten days together, I think it best to show you our favorites and let the photos tell the story of our holidays this year. Here is part one...Enjoy!

Branden and Mom hard at work in the kitchen, prepping for one of many yummy meals.Chrissy single-handedly preparing Christmas dinner while we were at the ER with Mom. She did a great job; everything was delicious!
We have been blessed with blue skies and warm weather all week! No white Christmas here, but no one seemed to mind.

Checking out the holiday lights around San Diego...

Dinner at our favorite restaurant, Donovan's. Yum!

Christmas morning at the Marty's

San Diegans are a healthy bunch, so they have an annual 5K and parade each year on the morning of the holiday bowl. Since this was our first and last Christmas in San Diego, we decided to partake...we started with the 5K, hit the parade and ended the day at the holiday bowl, where ASU lost badly to Texas.

Here we go, huffing and puffing to the finish line...it was my best time yet, but as you can see on the clock, I am a slow runner! Not having run since my last 5K (smart, I know), I hobbled around for the next few days. My sweet husband ran with me the whole time, despite being able to run much faster on those long legs of his . Thanks, B!
While we checked out the parade, we also did some touristy sight-seeing along the Embarcadero. This statue is fairly new to SD, and B tried to recreate...
Enjoying the Holiday Bowl!

As you can see, we had a great week with my family! I'll work on photos from the Marty visit next.
