Okay, so I'm still here...I'm just wrapping things up, so please come back to find out where I will be this year. This year...2009!!! Now I have to teach Melody to say 2009 instead of 2008. Great.
So if you know our family, you know we love to do two things: 1) eat 2) play board games
We have so many board games (card games, any other type of games), it's crazy. You can play a different one each time you come visit any of the collective family members. It has been a little more challenging in recent years to get together to do this because we have kids now and everyone's schedule is different due to work. Hopefully, we can find more time to do this in 2009 because goshdarnit, those days were fun. Melody also got a great board game for Christmas (which I think I like better than she does), so that would be great to include her in a game that she can actually play.
I think this might be the last one... It's not all the photos because a lot of the ones that we took for our Christmas festivities are on Norm's camera, and I have yet to post any from his camera...so if it seems that some weeks are lacking in photos, that's why.
A church friend's mom invited some of us out to lunch at Mayflower Seafood Restaurant in Union City. We sat next to the fish.
Norm's family came over for dinner at Ice Creamery, and Stephen and Kristi was taking a flight out from Oakland Airport, so they stayed a bit to play Fireball Island.

Goodies from our neighbors...plus they gave Melody a gift too. How nice!
Girlfriend thinks she's all that...hehe...in her sweatshirt and sweatpants....haha and Princess shoes
We went to see Christmas lights. I was sad because the house that's usually all decked out, didn't decorate this year. Well, it's been a few years since I've been there. Maybe the owners moved. Or they're older now and don't want to get up on the roof. It was superlighted up when we went the previous years, and there was caution tape because people would walk through the neighborhood to see all the decorated houses. Sorry my camera doesn't capture such great photos at night. The last one is one of our neighbor's house. Oh, and these were taken from inside our car because it was sprinkling that night.
My "to sort" folder in my photos section is overloaded, so you'll have to be patient.
We've been eating a lot more than we had intended.
I can't believe the year is almost over...and then the BIG reveal...okay, it's not that big, but it'll be a change. Weird how all of a sudden, I've had an increase in readership...since my entry about not staying with xanga.
I think I have to sort myself out a little as well as the photos folder...eh.
