Happy days of Christmas

 Papa came home last weekend and made our Christmas.  There isn't anything that I could buy for Xavi that would have made him any happier than seeing his dad.  So that is my most recent excuse for not keeping up on the blog...catching up with Mario.  In preparation for his homecoming, i wanted it to be as "christmassy" (if that is a word) as possible.  I got a tree, monogrammed matching stockings, put up lights, and bought some poinsettia.  I am not sure if he really cares about it all...I'm sure he's just happy to be home with his boys...but I had fun and it sure helped get me in the spirit.  I"m glad he arrived because I was just plain exhausting myself getting it all done.  Xavi is still learning about what it all means and most goes over his head, but as long as he knows it is a happy time of togetherness, love, and peace...someday he will understand the rest of the reason for the season.  For now?  We are enjoying being outside in the sunshine and seeing palm trees....I still don't miss the ice and snow.
Xavi contributed the "snow"..packing peanuts!

Mama strung the lights all by herself...we even have a snowman!!  

Diego "guarding" Nico...or is he just trying to cop a feel of Nico's lambswool throw?

My beautiful #2...growing up fast!  He has beautiful big brown eyes with LONG eyelashes.  His smile is adorable and flirty.  My heart has doubled in size!  

Heartbreaker!  This boy's smile melts my heart.  HIS big brown eyes are a beautiful caramel light brown that matches his hair.  He will randomly hug me and pat me on the back or plant a sweet kiss right on my lips..."it's ok mama".  And it is.  

Gramma Mimi! Does this remind you of anyone?  I know that I frustrated you more than once by getting wet in almost any body of water...Xavi is on a similar path.  So I just took off his pants and shoes and let him go for it...Good thing it was still warm that day.  Gotta love Christmas in California.
