Family Christmas Party

I had some extended family in town this week. They were getting together to celebrate Christmas a little early and invited Mr. Rogue and I over to join in the fun. I cannot tell you how happy I was to go. Since I am not allowed to travel while pregnant we are not able to go to Louisville to spend the holidays with my family like we had planned. Which is totally a bummer but worth it for a healthy baby. So this was the only Christmas celebration with family I was going to get.

I am really close with some of the family but there were many more faces that I recognized from seeing them just once or twice. It was fun catching up with everyone.

The brothers and sisters all together to celebrate. These are all my mother’s cousins so my cousins once removed.

After visiting, dinner and exchanging our gifts we headed out to downtown Riverside to the Mission Inn. I had never been before but the Mission Inn is a wonderland of lights. We went just after sundown, a short little ten minute drive and we were in Christmas light heaven.

The line to get in was so long. Thankfully we had two pregnant woman in our group and a guard let us up front so we didn't have to wait! BONUS.

I asked Mr. Rogue to get me one of these for Christmas!

Those of the family that hadn’t seen the Mission Inn yet and who braved the cold to see the lights!

Aw, I'm so happy that you got to spend Christmas with the Oliviers! Such a wonderful family. They always make the effort to get together! Make sure you e-mail Barb and Carolyn with that family photo of all their siblings. I know they would appreciate it!
