We got back on Sunday from our California trip. We had a fun time hanging out at the beach. We also walked on Hollywood Boulevard and checked out the stars on the sidewalk and Graumins Chinese Theatre. We took a ride through Beverly Hills in a limo and checked out Rodeo Drive. Had fun playing with the grandbabies!
Emily, my baby, got engaged this week!
We also celebrated Mandy's 30th birthday!
All in all a very eventful week!

Packing is a major ordeal for me!!!! Does anyone else feel the same way? I try to devote the whole day before I leave just for packing. I can't ever decide what to take. Then I always think I am forgetting something! It's all so overwhelming!

Just realized that the last two posts are almost the same. You know how it is... the memory is the first to go. Now what was my name again......


So it's off to California for our whole family on Wednesday. We are going on this trip to celebrate Emily's college graduation. She doesn't actually graduate until May, but with the pregnant sisters, we had to move the trip up to spring break. We are renting a beach house while we are there. It should be a lot of fun.

I'm back from my trip and trying to get back to normal. It won't last too long though, because we are going on a family trip to California on the 17th to celebrate Emily's graduation. She will be our last child to graduate from college. We are going to stay in a beach house there. It should be a lot of fun!

With love in the loving cup
When you're wrong admit it
When you're right shut up!

Christmas 2009

Christmas kinda got spread out for our family this year. The girls and spouses/boyfriend exchanged gifts with the names they drew at Thanksgiving because the whole family was together.
Christmas morning we had Natalie, Matt, Emily, and Bossy. Both pairs had other family to spend time with, so Steve and I spent part of the day alone.
Then Wednesday we came to Plano and exchanged gifts with Mandy, Matt, and the kids.
We are going home tommorrow (Saturday). It's been fun playing with the kids!
