When we were in Cali....

We...

did a little of this....
played a little of this....

saw and felt the cold....
the girls shopped
and played dress up....
we rode around like Cinderella
enjoying the lights...
we spoiled some girls....and sat in President Taft's big chair!
We posed for the annual Christmas picture....(see the coat....I never took it off!)
said farewell to some reindeer until next year....
and the beautiful sites and sounds....
We ate some of these...
Yah....those were gone!

Why did we go to California?  Rose from A Hint of Home and hubby, our life long friends, were there visiting her daughter for Christmas.  We drove over to spend some holiday fun together....and we did!!

Looks like you had a fabulous time in Ca! Riding in Cinderella's coach would be fun!

I hadn't realized your DH was so tall!!

I am coming your way and sure do hope I get to see you! We just figured out Friday that we were going and could/should make the time to go down that way. Bill's folks are in their 80's now and his aunt is very frail so it will be good to visit and celebrate our missionary friends retirement.

I've enjoyed reading your blog and can't wait to see what's next!
I, too, am battling cancer for the past two years. My cancer is a form of melanoma and is in my left eye. I posted my story on my blog on December 29th if you'd like to read it.
God has been good to me and has proved me to be a miracle patient to my doctors.
I will be lifting you up in prayer.
You have a new follower.
