Just what the Dr. ordered

This past Friday Micah and I hosted his office Christmas party at our home. This meant twenty or so people would be here donning their cocktail attire in a kid free zone. Since it was a company thing with no kids allowed, we knew we couldn't have our two babes toddling around either. This put us in a predicament seeing how the only people who have watched Elsie overnight has been my parents and besides one time when she was 11 months old it has only been at our house, where she is in her own bed. We have yet to leave Vernon unless it was after both of their bed times and snuck out for a coffee or a bite. This being said it was a really big deal to have my parents come and pick up both littles and keep them for the night. Like HUGE. Even up until the day prior I tried canceling the party because I was a bit uneasy about the whole thing. I was made comfortable with the whole thing knowing that my dad took Friday off of work. My parents were so excited to be able to have them both at their house for the evening.
The night was a success and though we missed them terribly we loved having the next morning and day to ourselves until they brought them back to us. 
 sadly, this is the only pic of me from the party, you can't even see the fab dress and shoes I'm rockin'

We woke up from a sound sleep and went to breakfast at our fave spot in San Juan Capistrano. Ramos House. I have mentioned this place on more than one occasion, but I mean it is honestly some of the best food we have ever tasted. 
We drove past this on the way to breakfast and Micah just about got into an accident when he saw it. I swear this made his weekend.
 Well rested and ready to eat
 this place is no joke
After eating, and taking our time doing so, we made our way to the beach and enjoyed the sand and the sound of the ocean waves until we just about fell asleep. Then we headed to Newport to shop for the last few items on our Christmas list. 
We came home to a quiet house and cozied up on the couch to watch "It's a Wonderful Life" while we waited in anticipation for my parents to bring the babies home.

I know what you mean about not liking to leave your children with other people, it worries me too! We hardly ever have anyone babysitter watch our son. Must be a mommy thing :) Sounds like you two had a good morning out though.
I just found your blog and it's adorable! New follower :)
