Isabel and Elliot experienced 4 Christmases this year: in Utah before leaving, at the cabin in Big Bear on Christmas day, back in Oxnard 2 days later, and then we found more stuff from Santa when we got home! Spoiled kids! We also had a fun New Years Party in Oxnard and spent New Years Day in Pasadena for the Rose Bowl! Then made it back for my first week of work and a crazy snow storm. And that is the summary of the past month. Here are the pictures:
