Karl and Rachael were endlessly entertaining us with their muscial talents!!
This was our first attempt in a long long time to cut down our own Christmas Tree. Our friends Lonnie and Karen let us go on their property in the mountains and find a tree. We got a beautiful tree and had a great time!!
Looks like Eric is taking after his Dad, handy with tools and all, I just don't remember Rob wearing towels around his face. Eric does that towel fit into your "I'm only wearing it if it comfortable" mentality? Tina has the same look on her face that I often get... that "are you sure you know what your doing" look.
Everytime we cross the border into California and see the beautiful pinetrees, we just come alive!! Amazed at the beauty that this state holds. And usually we vow that we are going to move back here some day. Anyway, we were on our way to my parent's house in Oroville when we passed the turn off to Lake Tahoe, suddenly the idea of passing by that beautiful lake was too much for us and we turned around and spent two days there. I'm very glad that we did. We had a great time!!! Now, not all of California is beautiful. And one day in Oroville was enough, so we decided to head to the coast. We spent 3 days in Mendocino. We climbed over more rocks and hiked the coastline. We visited a light house and went to glass beach and collected pieces of glass there that had been made smooth from the sand and water washing up on it. The glass is smooth and it just glistens in the sunshine. Hallie had more fun collecting pieces of glass. Our next favorite thing to hiking along the coast is eating. Mendocino has great places to eat. It's a small old logging town, the homes were built in the 1880's. The way the town is situated along the coast, is more then charming. On the way back to Oroville, we enjoyed the beautiful rolling hills of the wine country. We found this apple orhcard and little produce market. Of course we had to stop and get some apples and apple juice. Our family reunion was at Ron's house. Here's the guys playing volleyball in the pool.But the funnest thing is when the evening comes and we play games all night.
I don't know if Rob likes playing Wii or fishing best. All I know is he alternates between the two a lot. First he's upstairs playing Wii, then you look outside and he's fishing. Anyway, the other day he caught this fish and he was pretty excited about it. You decide whether you think its big enough to get excited about or not.
Jackson loves his Uncle Brad. He likes to follow him around and loves to play with his collection of mustang cars; but the real car is the best. So the other day when Brad was washing his mustang, he let Jackson help. Jackson was in car heaven. He was so upset when Lynnette wanted to leave and he had to stop washing the car.
