The only tragic thing about spending Christmas in California was the fact we didn't get to see our Ivins family on the big day.
We did the next best thing and celebrated early with Pop Pop and Grammy, though we still missed them terribly on December 24 and 25.
To pass the time before present opening, Lola helped Pop Pop close a big business deal on his Blackberry.
The Blackberry was immediately abandoned, however, upon the discovery of her stocking -- which was filled to the brim with her favorite treats and toys.
Reece was pretty pumped about the contents of his stocking as well -- which included a 20-pound bag of gummy bears.
Lola thoroughly enjoyed ripping into her gifts, lollipop in mouth.
The girl is spoiled rotten
Easton, Redd and Di came over for the first-annual cousin gift exchange.
I would say, it was a smashing success.
We missed our Ivins family on Christmas, but loved being able to celebrate with them in another way.
Thanks to Cyndi and Tony for a lovely evening.
