Harbor Lights








Christmas is the one time of year when you can count on smiling faces and bright lights and awesome gifts and giant twinkling trees and family reunions and childish games and believing in that old man that you know doesn't exist. Christmas is the time when dreams come true.

Christmas California Style 2010

Christmas - that magic blanket that wraps itself about us, that something so intangible that it is like a fragrance. It may weave a spell of nostalgia. Christmas may be a day of feasting, or of prayer, but always it will be a day of remembrance--a day in which we think of everything we have ever loved. ~ Augusta E. Rundel~
























































































































































The best of all gifts around any Christmas tree:
the presence of a happy family all wrapped up in each other.
~ Burton Hillis ~

Six Words!

Jaime has turned 33 this week
and I asked her in a text message today,
"to use a six word sentence to describe your life"...
her 42 word reply was...
"Wants to be in time out"
"Ran out of energy last year"
"Prays for patience more than anything"
"Will take food over sex anyday"
"Be careful what you wish for"
"Athlete trapped in a fat body"
"Mother to Aiden, Mia and Seth"
What would your answer be,
leave a comment...

Only the Toes Knows

Sandles and painted toes, two "must haves" for California living
A 3 generation pic. Can you pik out the granny toes??
Taking my class in Photoshop has prompted my blogging again and visiting other bloggers who love taking pictures and sharing them. Not looking to go pro but definitely will be working towards amatuer, instead of the beginner that I am now.
Baby steps for a baby boomer!

Along my links from blog to blog I came to "Mama and the Dudes", this is her first blog challenge and it looks like fun. Being a Grandmom to twins and triplets and the fact that her "dudes" are so dang cute and twins, may have caught my attention. So click your way on over to
