Family Photo Shoot

While we were in San Fran, my very talented brother-in-law, 'Chung took some (over 300) photos of us. He likes to practice lighting techniques and is working on his head shots. We had a lot of fun with it and have some great pictures in the end. Thanks 'Chung!

Christmas in California

We are home after a great trip to California. Audrey and I spent three weeks and Eric spent two weeks in the warm weather that California offered us. Eric flew out of Baltimore hours before a big snow storm that would have grounded him for days. We were surprisingly disappointed to be missing the 20 inches of snow our house got while we were gone, but were happy to soak up as much sun as we could. George and Stef, who kindly cared for our house while we were away, took this picture.
We celebrated three Christmas' with our Cali families...

John and Mary Ann (Eric's Dad and Step-mom)

My Mom and sisters

My Dad and Arlene

Audrey got LOTS of presents:

We celebrated my mom's engagement!

We got to visit the farm... a couple of times.

Audrey got to see a lot of her friends...and we got to meet three new babies during our stay. We saw so many people we forgot to take pictures with many of our friends.

Cole, her first buddy

Cami, her first and best babysitter

Makayla, farm friends

The Grant twins

Baby Matilda.

For New Year's we were spent in San Francisco and celebrated my older sister, Rahime's birthday on the 2nd of January. Lidia made the most amazing cake. We spent a lot of time eating great food, building Leggos, watching movies and going to the dog park.

Overall, we would have to say that we had an amazing trip. Nevertheless, there is no bed like your own.
