A whole family again (for a few weeks anyway...)


This is the photo I would have used on my Christmas card, if it wouldn't have been quite so dark. The flash wasn't bright enough, and although Diana tried to photoshop it brighter, we wound up a little too blotchy-faced to put on our card. Oh well. It was a good try. I used a different photo for the Christmas card instead (which should be underway pretty soon depending on Walmart...).


In any case, I drove up and got Diana today from her place. I had her park her bike in her room and we got some Taco Bell after stopping at Trader Joe's for a couple of things. The drive was just rainy - we beat the big storm that's supposed to hit either later tonight or tomorrow. And then more storm comes in on Sunday. There's a good chance for delayed start to school or complete snow days next week. One day showed the low being 25 degrees, and the high being 26. Hee. Yep - that's cold.

I'm glad to have my girl back home with us again for the break. She has a few things planned - she'll check in on the High School this week - hang out in German class with her favorite teacher and then go the Japanese Club meeting in the afternoon. She might go camping on the coast with a friend if we can work it in. Then we also need to get cousin Daniel over for a visit as well.

I weighed in at TOPS almost 4 pounds under my goal, so I am good to enjoy myself here & there. I have a recipe for cranberry salsa I'm looking forward to trying. w00t!

So then D should have applied her anime filter to that pic. I think you guys as animated characters would have made a great card.

Next year then...

Okay Mary - our Open House is on Sunday from 1-5. There will be a lot of people, so if you want to wait until Monday to visit, that's okay too. I'm sure there will still be snacks left :P

Byron, that's a great idea! Next year, look for it! (remind me by November please).
