Our Virginia Trip

Here are a few random pictures of our time in Virginia. I have more from our time there but here's a start. They're in no particular order.

Late Christmas Eve I received a call from my Great Uncle Dan & Aunt Rita. They were calling to wish us a Merry Christmas and they were in Williamsburg just 45 minutes away from where I was staying! After Christmas, they were planning on staying in a hotel just 20 minutes away on the beach. We made plans to get together and a few days after Christmas, we ended up going out to the beach where they took us all out to dinner and then we walked along the boardwalk and saw the beautiful Christmas light show. It was so fun to get to spend some time with them and for them to meet Taeya and Phil's family for the first time.
Taeya was having lots of fun playing.

Aunt Rita really enjoyed holding Taeya and Taeya took a liking to her.

Since Phil and I missed celebrating our 4th anniversary together since I was in CA, we celebrated while we were in VA and Grandma and Grandpa babysat. We went to The Melting Pot and it was absolutely amazing! It was a special treat for both of us and we had such a sweet time together reminiscing over the years that we've been married and dating.

Aunt Sarah was sick one day and sleeping on the couch. Taeya went over to visit and started patting her. It was so sweet.

We played a lot of Settlers on this glass Table. Taeya enjoyed walking underneath it and trying to grab things through it. She found that it was tougher than she thought it would be.
We played LOTS of Settlers. So much fun!
Phil watched Taeya at the chapel Grandpa works at while I went to get some errands done on base. He taught her how to play the drums which she really enjoyed. The sweetest thing though was that he said he walked with her down the aisle of the church and it almost made him cry thinking of when he'll have to walk her down the aisle someday if she gets married. Isn't that so sweet?
While we were at the Navy base, I found a New Year's hat for Taeya to play with on New Year's Eve.
Where am I going? Ta-da!
She's so stylish
After church one day, Grandma, Taeya and I took a few pictures so I had pictures of her in her pretty dress. She was interested in a chime hanging nearby.

I think Taeya's face is so cute here

We had so much fun together playing Settlers (even if some people who will remain unnamed take it a little bit too seriously!) What a wonderful Christmas.... thanks for renewing the membories.
