Christmas 2010

I had a wonderful Christmas with the family. This year was spent at Victoria's home in Oakley and at parents home in Santa Nella. I drive down to Santa Nella on Thursday evening and spent a quiet evening with my parents. I made mango pomegranate guacamole that evening.

Friday morning Jane arrives at parents and then we pack up the Honda and head north to Oakley to spend Christmas Eve with Victoria, Romarr and Aaliyah. We had a great time visiting and catching up. Victoria, Romarr and Aaliyah opened up their gifts. We headed back to Santa Nella before it got too dark. That evening I made cosmopolitans while we sang Christmas carols.

Christmas Day we opened presents after breakfast. Everyone received something that was on their wish list and the last present opened was the family calendars which this year had a slight twist. I used many old photos for a historical look at our family. I hope everyone had a great holiday.. I did. MERRY CHRISTMAS EVERYONE!
