It's New Year's Eve and I'm writing one last entry to my blog for 2014 before I set it up to be published in a book. I've been using Blog2Print for several years now. I like having a physical book of memories for the year.
Our family celebrated Christmas Week with a photography session at Crab Cove in Alameda. A local photographer kept us laughing and moving as he clicked away. We are still in the process of sorting out the best of the best. It's very difficult when the darling grand-daughters are so cute and photogenic.
Just a couple more for the record of this year.......
On Wednesday of Christmas week, the family traveled by ferry to San Francisco to see Beach Blanket Babylon. It is a funny satire musical about San Francisco and current events. It was a gloriously clear day and we had great family fun.
Next it was home to Alameda for dinner at our house and the reading of the Christmas Story and The Night Before Christmas......a family tradition. This year the stories were read by Makayla and Violet. My heart swells to see this family tradition carried on to another generation.
Christmas morning brought Santa surprises, food, family frivolity, swimming in the afternoon (Hey, it's CA!) and Thai food for dinner.
Now its time for New Year's Eve. The girls will be coming over to spend the night. The champagne flutes are washed and ready for some bubbly (Martinellis for girls, Champagne for us). We go forward into 2015 praying for joy, happiness, peace and goodness to prevail. Praise God for our many blessings.
