Happy New Year/Holidays in the Homeland

Despite the fact that we probably had more rainy than sunny days, we really enjoyed spending time with our families this Christmas. Landon had so much fun playing with his cousins, and we took advantage of the sunny days to go for walks and take road trips along the winding back roads of Ventura County. We look forward to getting back sooner rather than later!
