Merry Christmas 2008

Posted on Updated on

We had a wonderful Christmas spending Christmas eve here at our house with Nana Sally, Greg, and John. We all went to mass at St Max’s and then had a nice dinner here at the house. Amy made a very good Shrimp Scampi receipe. On Christmas day Santa delivered for the kids with Old school Big Wheels and a GIANT doll house for Lauren. We went down to San Diego to have Christmas dinner with my Dad, Michele, and Bridget. It was a fun day. The next day we headed down to the hotel Del in Coronado. We picked up a few ornaments from the hotel Del. It was one of my Mom’s favorite places.

Happy Birthday Lauren Elizabeth

Happy Birthday to my little girl who seems to be growing up so fast. It seems like time just flies by so fast. It seemed like only yesterday when I saw Lauren coming into this world. I will never forget the pure emotion seeing her the first time. It was love at first sight

Thanksgiving in Bodega Bay

Posted on Updated on

We had an really fun Thanksgiving in Bodega Bay. The Hughes, Cabes and Luthman’s hosted the four day weekend. It was so much fun and such a beautiful place. The northern California coastline is so beautiful with rolling green hills like Ireland. The ocean was beautiful with large pounding waves and a very rocky coastline. The sunsets were beautiful and the fog layer in combination with the Sunset was a sight to see.

The kids had a great time enjoying time with their cousins. I am truly grateful for such a wonderful family.



The sunsets were so beautiful at Bodega Bay with the air turning crisp and cool 

within such a short time.
