December Highlights


Running into Santa at a shopping center definitely puts the high in highlight.  


Telling Santa that you have been a REALLY good boy this year.  


Hot chocolate stop before a stroll down Candy Cane Lane.


We actually did a scavenger hunt.  Girls against the Boys.  



 Annual Christmas story eading by the Christmas Tree each night.  (Yes, we missed quite a few nights this year).

Eating the biggest cheesesteak sandwich is a necessity to survive finals.


Throw in ice-skating a few times.  
 One time with the boy scouts.  


Marky was a natural ice-skating.



Favorite Things Party for Chelsea and her friends.




Sugar & Plum Purveyors of Yum.



Lighting the Advent Calendar.


Singing around the piano.


Adult Favorite Things Party.

Thanksgiving 2015

This Thanksgiving was the first without my beloved father.  We felt that we needed to do something different.

Steven and Chelsea sang at the Thanksgiving service which is something they do each year.












WE then drove to Carmel for Thanksgiving dinner.  


We ate at Clint Eastwood's restaurant, Mission Ranch in honor of my father.





We then went to Point Lobos and hiked around.  It was  beautiful day.  













When you are an 8 year old, you photobomb.
