Christmas, Christening, and Jack turns TWO!!!

For the holidays we headed back east for a trip to Indiana and Ohio to visit our families. It was an eventful trip but we enjoyed seeing everyone and were happy to show off our beautiful little Gracie girl and wild Jack!

this is the sign of a good Christmas...a mess.
2 Barrys, 1 Sandy--studs.

Annual trip to Kraynaks and lunch at North Country Brewery

Jack's new bike from Grammy and Papa's---this obviously stayed in Indiana!

cheese time with Papa!

Grace and my Granny--2 beautiful girls.

Gracie's first baby doll!!

While we were in Ohio, we were lucky enough to have Grace baptized. She did wonderful and was dressed in a beautiful gown that one of her Grandma's great friends found for her! (It was actually made by someone at the church!)

Godfather Nicholas ready to dry her little head!

And here's the newest and prettiest Catholic!!

We got back to California on Christmas night and got ready for Jack's big day! I can't believe my little boy is 2 years old already!
We got him a rocking horse because he is OBSESSED with horses lately---"Hories" as he calls them. Daddy wanted to put it together the night before but I insisted that he have something to actually unwrap. Yet another time I should have listened to my husband--it took like an hour to put together! Oh well, he was on it ALL DAY LONG--money well spent!

While we were waiting on Daddy to put the horse together--Jack had his birthday pancakes! I think I'll make this a tradition for the kids--he really liked it!

Thanks everyone for a great holiday--it was wonderful to see everyone, as short as that may have been. Happy Holidays and an even Happier New Year!! Stay tuned for new exciting adventures for the Barry family in 2010!!

Army/Navy Game

This Saturday was the annual Army/Navy game--a big game with the Barry family. We went to a party for Garrett's squadron and their families at the Chuderewicz's. Jack always has a blast with their kids and Garrett and I have a lot of fun hanging out with everyone too!! This year was another successful win and a great party too, despite the rain! It NEVER rains here--but of course, today it would!

All the Academy grads!

Fun in the Fall...

Back in October we took a trip to Underwood Farms, a local place that has a petting zoo, pumpkin patch, hay rides and all kinds of other fun country stuff! Jack had a blast--his favorite was the petting zoo, he's really into farm animals these days.
