Christmas, 2011

Wow. That just about sums it up. We had a fun-filled holiday...we took Maddie and Rylan to see the Nutcracker, and then Maddie to see A Christmas Carol at a dinner theatre, off to visit with Mr. Clause, a belt test of Tae Kwon Do, TKD Christmas party, family Christmas and off to CA for a nice visit with George's sister Sue. It was good to get back to California - saw some wine country, went to a casino. visited George's old haunts, passed my hometown of Pasadena in the process of getting ready for the Rose Bowl and off to Solvang. I also had a GREAT Christmas party through my work - now this group knows how to celebrate the holidays. It was in a home overlooking Phoenix with some beautiful views, casino games, great catered food and adult beverages of all natures and such a terrific group of people. Wonderful way to end 2011.

#6 At Chuck E Cheese (aka Lord Help Me)

Maddie had a fun birthday. I'm finding it a bit challenging celebrating between Thanksgiving and Christmas. We had fun at Chucky Cheese - a place she's wanted to go all year for her 6th birthday. She chose a Kung Fu Panda cake this year. Every passing year I love her more...don't know how that's possible. She as such a good heart and nature. I couldn't ask for a better daughter.
