This post is too big.

Just posting some of the pictures from December and January. I never want to get this behind again. Too much trouble to catch up.

Anyway, here we are riding bikes in early December.

Our Christmas Trip

We drove up north this year to celebrate Christmas with family. Keith's brother Darren stayed with Papa and Curly and we stayed with Aunt Lene and Uncle Jack.

Jen, Kalie and Ethan came to visit us at Aunt Lene's house. It was storming outside so we all stayed inside and Aunt Lene made the kids Hot chocolate. This was the afternoon that Sam slammed his head into the coffee table and gave himself a huge black eye. Look for it in pictures below...

We went to the Monterey Bay Aquarium. Uncle Lam has most of these pictures. I'll have to get them from him. But he is in Vietnam right now.

We played with cousin Mila.

Christmas Eve we went to Uncle John Joe and Annie's for an amazing party.

The boys in the window are Annie's grandsons...waiting for Santa.

Santa Claus came!!

A lovely Christmas morning at Aunt Lene and Uncle Jack's house.

Next, we drove over to Martinez for dinner with the Ranahan's. Aunt Pam made a delicious Christmas dinner and we had fun seeing some more cousins.

David, Kerry and Regan Joiner

Kevin and Meredith (They got engaged in January! Yay!! I am so happy about this!)
Kevin is a chef and he helped with dinner and made this beautiful salad.

The day after Christmas, we had breakfast with the Bowman's in their beautiful home that they recently moved back into. 4.5 years after the fire.

Soon after coming home from our Christmas trip, the Mace's arrived to celebrate New Year's with us. One of the nights, we, the adults went to see Camper Van Beethoven and Cracker at the Belly Up. So fun!

These pics are from hiking in Rancho Santa Fe.

Partied out on New Year's. Jim and Sharon also came by on New Year's Eve to help celebrate. We had a really good time. :-)


We went to a few birthday parties.

Walked around downtown Carlsbad.

Then the kids got sick and I had my new iphone, so January went by without many photos.

Oh, and we saw some ducks.
