Christmas in California

This was the first time that the whole family has been together for Christmas in about 15 years. On Sunday evening all of my aunts and uncles and cousins were at mom and dad's for dinner. We showed up a little late, but were still able to see everybody, including my cousin David who I haven't seen since right after I got married 7 years ago. In fact, his first comment to Guaci after talking to her was "Hey, You speak English!" The last time he saw her, she didn't speak hardly any English. She laughed and said "I know Dude! And I'm taking college classes!" On Christmas Eve morning,just the immediate family came over to mom and dad's for breakfast and gift exchange. We had a good time. It sure was nice to see everybody. Later that morning, we went down to the beach with my brother Tony, his wife Amy and their son, Antonio. The weather was soo nice. We went to Laguna Beach and took some pics at the same beach where Guaci and I took our engagement pics. This time our family was a little larger. It was also the first time that Ari had ever been to the beach. We came home today, Christmas Day, and we are all exhausted. I have to work tonight.

Dec. 20, 2007

I'm still working at the Springs Preserve trying to get rid of all of the punchlist items remaining. Looks like we might get out of there by the end of Jan. I know the Springs Preserve is sick of us being there. But definitely not as much as we are!
We're going to California for Christmas to visit mom and dad. All of us kids will be there. This will be the first year we have all been together in about 15 years or so.I'm anxious to see Antonio, Tony's baby. We've yet to meet him.
Tami and Ari are so excited for Christmas. Ari loves all the lights on the tree and Tami can't wait to see what Santa has in store for her. Guaci has been a real trooper holding down the fort while I've had nightschool and working the graveyard shift. She's about as exhausted as I am, if not more so.
