Here are a couple pics from Christmas day! I love KCAL 9 who on Christmas morning has a yule log image on the tv and plays Christmas music. You can see it in the pic of me Christmas morning. We turn it on every Christmas and open our presents to the sound of the fire place and music! It's hilarious! Then after over eating and over sleeping we took a walk on the pier and enjoyed being in California and not in a snow storm somewhere! Oh yeah - and Jeff TOTALLY surprised me with the Cannon Rebel I have been wanting! It's rad!
Luke and Jake

One of the very cool boats
Jeff and his new friend playing Wii.
Our fun group! Followed by the all the old roomies! :)
A must around the holidays is the Newport Beach Boat parade. We were lucky enough to watch it this year from our friends AMAZING boat. The night was complete with good friends, good music, and of course hot chocolate! :) Although about half way through the night I realized I hadn't seen Jeff for a really long time. So I went down below to find him and all the kids on the boat playing Wii. I love the picture of Jeff above celebrating his victory over his new friend. Maybe after all the Christmas craze we will have to get us a Wii. But thanks again to the Yakety Yak boat and to all of our good friends!

I have lots of traditions for my birthday! Every year we go to Knotts Berry Farm on my birthday. I look forward to it every year and love ending the day on The Ghost Rider! Plus I think I'm the only person who gets funnel cakes as their birthday cake, but how can you not when you are at Knotts! It was freezing this year, but we had so much fun! Dad even went on the Accelerator and mom was a champ walking through the park after knee surgery. It is also a tradition that we get our Christmas tree on my birthday! I LOVE IT! A BIG THANKS to everyone who always makes my birthday special! And in case you were wondering - yes - I really am 25 again!
Stella Rae Draeger is the first girl on the Draeger side! She weighed in at 8 pounds 3 ounces and 20.5 inches long. We are so glad that she is finally here!

My mom and my sisters have created a tradition that we call our "Girl-cation!" It's so fun to get away with just the girls! We have normally done it around Amanda's soccer schedule so we can see some games and hang out so we were in Provo this year. We went to three of Amanda's games and even caught a BYU football game! Nothing quite like re-living the glory days. The tops of the mountains got snow and I was a bit bitter about the cold and the rain! But we always have fun and I love just laughing with mom and the sisters!
Jeff competed in his first sprint triathalon in Arrowhead. As Elders Quorum President he thought it would be an excellent bonding experience. About 7 guys competed and completed! I'm not going to lie - all of us wives were a bit concerned! It was so inspiring to watch and I'm so impressed by anyone who would pay to do this. It was even more fun to watch because Jeff and our good friend Dan were sprinting it in neck and neck! According to the race postings Jeff beat Dan by .01 of a second! :) A victory is a victory! :) Good Job Babe!
