At Christmas we had all our family here together for the first time in 4 years. They were all here for two weeks. We loved having a full house again--especially with a little baby. We kept busy doing all sorts of things: Rock Band marathons, puzzle making, games, golf lessons, ice skating, bike rides, playing in the tide pools, seeing "Wicked" and visiting Hollywood and the Ronald Regan Library. We had so much fun. It was sad to take down all the Christmas decorations after the house was quiet again knowing that we won't have everyone together again for another two years. Here are a few pictures of all our adventures.

I had to rewrite my comment because I thought Aunt Cheryl had written it. Anyway, so hello to both of you. And I'm glad to see you have a blog. It's so fun to see what people are up to. I'll send you and Cheryl and invite to mine. It looks like you had a fantastic Christmas. You always know how to have fun. I can't believe it's been 4 years since your family was all together. I bet that was a real treat.
