Things have finally settled down a bit now that we are halfway into January so I thought I'd recap our Christmas finally!
We had our 4th annual Christmas party with the Jones' and Richardsons (who we used to be in a couples bible study with from when we lived in Oceanside), the Sepps (who Derek has known since high school), and this year we got to have new additions - Dave (who we knew from our church back in Oceanside) and Shelly - soon to be Stockton! We had a great time!
We then had a wonderful time at the Hotel Del Coronado with the whole Wollitz side (my dad's side) of the family for the traditional Christmas Eve celebration. We enjoyed quality time with everyone at my parents house afterwards for the "Christmas Program" part of the evening where everyone does a "talent" or reading.
We drove up to Derek's parents house in Orange County on Christmas day to celebrate with them. We went out to dinner at Chart House with the whole family which was a nice change to be able to relax and chat without having to cook or clean! I ordered a Merry Christmas themed cake from cold stone and that's EXACTLY what we got! Yes, the cake literally says "Merry Christmas Theme." Too funny! Also, Derek had a bet with his mom that she wouldn't wear these very interesting pants out to dinner...she won!
