Helping is caring....a Mixer, Jewelry Box, and black jacket rounded out Mom's gifts this year.
Here, Lyle got the black shirt from the Japanese Art and Cultural Center that he wanted. Some gift cards for OSH, money, and a Bose system completed his night.
I got Aloe socks! Not pictured was my best treasure....a license plate cover that says: "Heard the Buzz.....I'm Bee's Grandma!" It is already on the car! What a great and thoughtful gift from Lyle! He is the Best!
So today we have another party to attend at Linda and Bob's house with "The Cousins." We have had a lot of fun this Christmas season already.
The group gathered to play "Family Feud." The girls won! But everyone got prizes...some for winning, some for playing, and some for not playing! It is amazing how that worked!
Well, the gang is almost all here for this Christmas picture. Bob and Kari were running an errand and I am taking the picture. As Clayton said when we were going home, "It sure was a young crowd this year!" I too remember when we were the "youngsters." Now there our kids are having kids and the 3 little ones were the ones to get the presents!
Addison with Princess Minnie Mouse....Josh with Giant Green Frog.Madison with Merry Christmas Minnie Mouse.It was a wonderful day and holiday season!
We hope your day is filled with precious moments for today and remembering the past!

On Saturday, we escaped to San Luis Obispo and Morro Bay for the day.
Although we left in the fog, it was absolutely beautiful at the coast! We met our good friends, Dave and Debbie Fox at their campsite in the hills outside San Luis Obispo. After meeting and greeting all their camping buddies, we went to a wonderful nursery called, Ron's in Grover City. It was an upscale place with way overpriced novelties, but great ideas. We then traveled into downtown San Luis to eat at Flame Bay. The stirfry food was amazing and filling! We sat in the outdoor patio and listened to the live band play a variety of tunes. Very relaxing. After a little shopping and a frozen yogurt, we headed back to the campsite to leave Dave and Debbie.
We headed for Morro Bay where we snapped these pictures. The weather was just right. Not too hot, not too cold. The sound of the water lapping against the shore and birds flying over has a calming effect!
