Christmas In CA

 When someone asks us what we do for Christmas, every year it's the same. We go down to CA  to spend time with our Mom's family. This year Mare went down early for her 16th B-day, to help Grandma and go to Disneyland. Then the rest of us showed up a week later. We had the nicest weather Ever!!! It was Great. Usually we have snow over the passes, but this year we had No snow at all, not even on the side of the road. On Christmas day it was 72o!!! It was wonderful! We all had a Great time playing, spending time, and seeing our cousins. We took walks almost everyday. Here is a picture of one of our walks. ;) (Pictures taken by Tina)

The harbor was so beautiful.

                                 We walked the pier. We haven't done that since I can remember.

I hope you had a Great Christmas too. Have a Great night.

"Christmas Morning"

Our older brother just came home for Christmas brake. He got home last Thursday and we decided to have Thanksgiving and Christmas on Sat. ;) We had Christmas so early, because Mare (one of our sisters) left early for CA for her 16th B-day. We had Christmas in the morning and Thanksgiving in the afternoon. It was great fun!!! It's Great having Nate home. Here are some pictures of us on "Christmas morning." ;)

Fall is almost over!!

These last weeks almost all the leaves on the Big trees have fallen off. The leaves here are beautiful!!! I Love fall. But I'm ready for winter. Only 20 more days till Christmas!! It comes soo fast. Our house is getting really busy. One of our sisters leaves for CA in about a week, then we will leave for CA later. Then some of us are in the church choir and we sing on Sunday, then the next Sunday the little kids have a musical. Also our older brother is coming home for Christmas, we haven't seen him in three months!! Were going to have another Thanksgiving dinner when he comes home. Also this year we are having our Christmas early, because Mare will leave for CA early. So we will have Thanksgiving and Christmas in one week!! :)
