Christmas 2016

Another fun Christmas is in the books! This year we all passed around a nasty virus, but other than that, we had a great time visiting with lots of family. I somehow missed getting any pics of the Shirzad clan festivities though! We spent the 23rd - 26th in Bellingham this year. The adults all went out for a birthday dinner at Anthony's on my birthday. The silver lining to having a Christmas birthday is that usually we are all together anyway!

Christmas Eve we went on a horse drawn carriage ride thru Fairhaven followed by donuts at Rocket Donuts and then to see the Moana movie.

Christmas Day we opened presents and then all the family came over for a big Christmas dinner. The entertainment was provided courtesy of a music video made by Ben and Michael. I love our family and all the laughs when we are together.

The day after Christmas we drove home to Yakima and had our Christmas with the Shirzad side of the family. Ariana and I were hit by the virus at that point, but the rest of the gang had fun going out for pizza and bowling. We spent the rest of the week laying low, playing with toys, reading new books and sleeping in! Zara had another follow-up appointment for her broken collar bone and it is healing nicely so we don't need to go back again.

Now onto the New Year! We are putting away Christmas and have more snow falling at our house on New Year's Day.
