So much happens in December. We made crafts and knitted, made spiced nuts and carefully wrapped gifts. We ice skated and ate meals with friends and family and had so much fun that I did not take any pictures at all. Still, I am so glad that I continue to share a few photos here to help me remember. And I know this is true at the end of every month but somehow at the years end I really want to hold it all and not let it go. This blog has preserved the sweetest moments for me to look back on. It is my heart on the internet. Thank you for visiting.
We brought Hugo, our Norfolk Pine inside and decorated our apartment for Christmas.
We attended a concert at the Paramount called “Let Us Break Bread” that honored Tina Turner. It was a lot of fun and totally worth it even in our top floor balcony seats.
We flew to Los Angeles to visit family.
Emma and Grandpa. We stay in Grandpa’s living room and watch old movies with him every day.
There were many old photo albums to look at and I snapped so many photos of my Mom. I still wear her blue shirt. 🙂
We had a wonderful time with family, delivering and opening presents and sipping prosecco (me) at the huge Christmas Eve party. Lots of sweets, yummy food and good conversation.
Stocking treats for me.
Here is Emma sporting a new shirt and jewelry and eating blueberries on Christmas day. Such a lucky kid.
After Christmas we are eager to return home to maiki.
We walked around the lake and visited the library in Chinatown.
Spent the last day of the year in Dimond park by Sausal creek with friends.
