If you've been following along, you already know that Gina (Ms. East Coast) and myself (Ms. SoCal) are across the country from each other. With her recent move to North Carolina, our parents remain in NY and the majority of our family is in CT so holidays can be rough especially with two small children. I'm blessed to have a close cousin in SoCal about an hour away, but her husband's family is close by so it's only natural that she'd spend the Christmas with them to show off her beautiful new baby Mia. I was planning on doing a small Christmas dinner home until my dear friend Leah invited us over. Leah doesn't fancy herself as a host, so she rarely has any shindigs at her and her husband's home. I must confess, every meal she has ever prepared has been delicious!!! Just as an added bonus this wonderful family from Australia was staying with them. Leah's husband Chad owns XPR Racing and works on Jackson's dirt bike while he's in the states. They are sweet, interesting and overall just good people. We had a wonderful time sharing and celebrating Christmas with all of them. I wish I had taken more pictures to share!
