Christmas on the Island

I hope everyone had a wonderful Christmas! We sure did. In fact, I can't think of a happier Christmas. The greatest joy for Michael and I was just watching the kids playing. It was a zoo here, but a delightful one. Now that the house is back in relative order I'm wading through the hundreds of pictures we took in the last few days.

On Sunday we went down to Balboa Island, which is one of my favorite places in the world. Christmastime on the island is always a special treat. Growing up there my family never missed the boat parade all bundled up with a carafe of hot cocoa. Happy memories. Michael and I take the kids down to the island often, buy a cinnamon roll or a pecan sticky roll and coffee from Cinnamon Roll Faire, and walk around the island, but this time of year it is especially lovely with all the beautiful decorations.

I love your photo bucket shows! Maybe once I get myself together I'll click on the "get your own photobucket" button.

What an encouraging blog you have. Thanks for sharing your daily life!
