Christmas Photos

I love that my dad is a photographer. We have a great resource pretty much whenever we want. So, for our Christmas pictures this year, Dad came out and took pictures of us at El Dorado Park. Owen had a blast since he loves the park and he was all smiles. We even had a cluster of geese to mess around with. Owen loved chasing after you'll see in one of the pics. We used a few of the pictures for our Christmas card and we'll eventually share some of Owen's good shots with family. Enjoy!

We spent Thanksgiving in Las Vegas this year. It was also a mini Ravelo family reunion. There were about 50 extended family members who all gathered for dinner at the California Hotel (where else) and then again for a brunch on the Saturday after. It was a fun time to see Aunties, Uncles and cousins who we rarely see. We also did a little sight seeing and actually got a night out on the town with out the kids! It was a nice time but I had no luck this round when gambling. Absolutely none! I should have stuck to shopping at the outlets!
The kiddos of the 3rd generation: Taylor, Rylee, Diesel, Ocean, Easton, Owen and Johnny. Cayden is missing (among others who weren't able to make it to Vegas at all) but he eventually joined the group on the Saturday for brunch.
My siblings and I...we're so grown up now!
Johnny and Owen at the hotel. We stayed at the Hilton Grand Vacations which is right next door to the Hilton. It's a nice place, super family friendly and very convenient since both my mom, aunt, uncle, cousins, sister and brother all stayed there too! We would bounce from room to room hanging out!
The Agapay side of the family with the "core" Ravelo family members!

Owen's 2nd Birthday!

Owen loved his birthday cupcakes!

The day of Owen's birthday party, was the day the fires in Chino Hills broke out. We had planned an outdoor party, but because the ash was so thick and the air quality was really poor, everyone squeezed inside to celebrate. We didn't have nearly as many people over as his first birthday, but just enough to make it seem like a big deal! We just served appetizers (which actually turned out to be really good!) and I mad 8 dozen (YES, 8 dozen) cupcakes for the occasion. They turned out so cute and yummy!
Didn't catch too many pictures from the party since we video taped this time around. All in all, it was a good party, Owen had a great time and we can't believe we have a 2 year old!
