It’s been a busy week in this household. On Friday, we headed to Orange County to visit with Alan’s son and his family. We were taking care of the grandsons while their parents had an evening for themselves. We stayed overnight in Huntington Beach, took a run in the morning, then we all headed south to San Diego to visit my oldest son, who was hosting the family Christmas celebration this year. It was so cool to have our three grandsons together (plus my two sons). Anyway, for this Sunday evening, here is the weekend in (mostly) pictures.
It was chilly but beautiful in Huntington Beach, perfect for a run along the coast. I started out alone (the boys didn’t want to run, so Alan and I were going to run in shifts), but then the boys changed their minds and decided to join in the fun.
Down the street from our grandsons’ home is this amazing display of Christmas cheer. These folks do it up right for every holiday, and really go all out for Christmas.
You all know the real reason I was excited about the family Christmas this year (see below). Samuel is now three weeks old and beautiful. This visit I was healthy, so I could hold, kiss, and smell him.
My son Nathan, with his son.
My niece, Brynne and Samuel.
My youngest son David with his nephew.
Here is Samuel (with mom, Sarah) sporting his San Francisco Giants’ onesie. Guess who bought it for him?
Teddy, my grand-doggy, is definitely one of the most photogenic dogs I’ve ever seen. I have almost as many pictures of him as I have of Samuel. Almost.
Although I think Buddy gives him a run for his money.
One of the things I was most excited about was the chance to have all three of our grandsons together. It’s those little moments that mean the most. That’s Dane on the left, Cash on the right.
From my family to yours, we wish you all a very Elvis Christmas.
