Christmas in California
The boys love Christmas! Skyler has a little Santa outfit he wears daily and you have to make him take it off for bedtime. It is a Lego Christmas for us, that is pretty much all the boys want. That, new pajamas and a little Batman and Star Wars thrown in to even things out. I want tickets to see John Mayer and Fred just got a new cell phone, so he is set.
Here Skyler plays Santa and shows you a book they got recently that they think is the BEST BOOK EVER for Lego lovers! (He fell at school and had a big scratch across his face for a week, but he is mostly healed now)
The weather was really beautiful until this week. In fact we went to the beach to take our Christmas photo and it was one of the most beautiful beach days we have had! You can see some of the photos above. But the clouds and fog have moved in. We had some drizzling rain and pulled out our warmer clothes. I really need get myself and the kids proper rain coats and umbrellas before it gets really rainy. We walk to school and it can be really unpleasant without the right clothes! The kids still eat their lunch outside at school, unless its really raining.
Fred had his One Year Anniversary at work. He still loves it and has an opportunity to do something a little different the next few months. He will be "On Loan" Andriod group. Andriod is Google's Mobile Platform, or for non-geeks their cell phone software. It's a big deal right now, and will be a very big deal shortly. It gives him a chance to be much more technical that has in a while, but be able to keep the great job he has. If you wonder what he does for "work" here is a little sample... dubbed in Russian.
We will be spending the week between Christmas and New Years in Denver. The kids are really looking forward to that, seeing friends, snow and familiar things. We are looking forward to it too, but it feels a little bit bittersweet.
