Christmas and New Years

Christmas and New Years was pretty laid back in the Head household.  For Christmas we woke up at 6:40am (unintentionally) and opened our presents to each other.  :o)  I got the whole scrapbooking kit to make my wedding scrapbook.  It is a really nice book (simple slip in for pics/writing) and comes with special papers and stuff to make it pretty.  Don't I sound like a professional scrapbooker?  Nick got a gaming headset/microphone, a gift card for amazon, a barbeque temperature fork, and a new cable for his car so he can play his music in the car.  Yeah... we spoiled each other.  After we opened our gifts, we went to my parents house to hang out and exchanged gifts.  That was fun, and we watched Nacho Libre while we waited to go to my grandma's.  At grandmas we exchanged gifts with extended family and then came back home and played wii with sisters and cousins.  We ended the day with a dinner and hang out time with my family.  It was fun, and though it sounds busy, relaxing.

On New Year's Eve Nick and I took my sisters to the Wild Animal Park.  I have to say that is was one of the most relaxing times ever there.  We made our way throughout the whole park except condor ridge and took LOTS of funny pictures. :o)

That evening, we went to dinner with the Spiekers and the Abeels at Casa de Pico and went to the Spiekers house to play Settlers of Catan.  It is a geeky game that is supposedly like Risk (I have never played) and took over 2 hours. :P  The family lit off a ton of fireworks at the new year countdown.  Soon afterward we left and went home and crashed.  It was pretty laid back. :)

Hope you enjoyed the pics!
