My family has lots of traditions, especially when it comes to Christmas. It seems like most of them are centered around food. That's just how we roll. We did one of my favorites this past weekend which was dinner at the R&D Kitchen, shopping at Fashion Island and more shopping and ooing and awwing at Rogers Garden in Newport Beach. It was a cold and rainy night but we still went out. We started at Rogers Garden. They have the most amazing trees along with garden center, ever. They also have very pretty price tags. Kate loved looking at all the "tees"....she goes back and forth calling them "rees" and "tees"...
After all the sparkles and such we went to Fashion Island to go see Auntie M at work. She works at our favorite place, Nordstrom. I love it! We all met at one of our favorite places to eat in Newport for dinner and had so much fun. Kate threw the biggest fit ever, that was until her grilled cheese and apple fries arrived. Thank God for food.

The gorgeous tree at Fashion Island. I may be wrong but I think it's one of the biggest live trees in the US.
Don't take my word for it though.
Ahhh, I love traditions...
and food!
