There was homemade dessert too, of course!
Since I'm always curious seeing what everyone received as presents, I figured everyone would enjoy seeing it as well.
Unfortunately, we weren't able to stay in California for ever and wound up having to fly home the day after Christmas. But not before taking a few family photos in the backyard. Here's one with my parents and younger brother,
and a second shot of just me and the boy.
It was great being able to spent some time back at home. I love being home in California and wish I could be there more often. Unfortunately its a little hard to visit from Louisiana often. Otherwise I'd be home a lot more often. But whenever anyone creates some sort of instant travel machine I'll be back there for more often!
