I recently added the slideshow gadget to my desktop, and saw our California pictures. Kinda gave me a renewed motivation to get on with posting the pics from our trip.
So, when I left off, I posted pictures from Christmas day. December 26th I took no pictures. All day. Must have forgotten the camera or something. I can't remember anymore what we did the day after Christmas.
BUT, on the 27th and 28th, we were on the go! We met up with an old (and by old, I do not mean age) friend and her family at a really nice park in Dana Point. We talked, played, picnicked, and painted nails. Carol is serious about her nail polish! I have four girls and our nail polish can't even hold a light to her stash! Thank you, Carol, for your tip on applying the shatter/crackle polish. Works like a charm! :)

We came back to celebrate Christmas with him the next day. Robert's grandma & Aunt Joanne stopped by with presents for the kids, too. It was so good to spend some time with them.
|Made me laugh :)|
|We all enjoyed some yummy fruit!|
|I love this. This is their relationship in a nutshell. :)|

|Robert's grandma. She recently celebrated her 90th birthday!|
We had a really nice afternoon with everyone & so grateful for the time spent together.
After we left, we stopped by a park to see our former pastor's family. The sun was quickly setting, but the kids managed to get some good playing in. It was a quick hello, but great to see them & ooh and ahh about how much kids have grown.
|Yes, that's Eva in my mouth.|
After the park, my dad had his favorite Ruby's to take us to.
|Hard to see way up there, but there's a Diet Choke, I mean, Diet Coke car on the train. Which is why this particular Ruby's is Dad's favorite. ;)|
This Ruby's is also the new home to one of my lens caps. Bummer.
I hope it won't take me another four months to add more pictures! I started this blah'g as a way to journal about our family since I didn't have time to be a scrapper. Turns out I haven't had time to type, either. :P
