Nothing gets me in the mood for Christmas as much as going to see my grandchildren in San Diego. Their tree was up, and decorated as much as it could be.
Here's the reason why there are no ornaments on the bottom half. Jonathan loves Christmas ornaments as much as I do!
One night we went to see the outstanding decorations on Glendon Circle. These people really go all out!
One enterprising homeowner sells kettle corn. Mara and Corrie were really looking forward to that.
The snowmen like to sunbathe around here. Or at least they normally do. The weather here has been cold and rainy.
On Sunday, the local park had a snow celebration. In spite of the cold weather, they still had to cart the snow in from the mountains. Mara got a short sled ride.
And she got to throw a snowball at Santa. Is that any way to guarantee a good Christmas take?
They had a lot of really good rides there, and Mara went on them all. She has no fear! Here she and Brian are on one even I wouldn't go on.
We went to see Santa, but Jonathan was at that "unsure-of-that-weird-looking-guy" age.
But don't worry -- Grandma and her computer can easily fix that!
