Mike and I went to Santa Barbara for a Christmas party/opening of his art at Cabana Home.
The food was yummy and we met a lot of great people. A couple of his art pieces were sold that night. We stayed in a beautiful hotel right on the beach...the Oceana. They had complimentary beach cruisers, so before we left for home we went for a ride along the coast and out onto the pier. It was a really fun getaway.

Andrew is learning to play the clarinet this year at school. They have an excellent band program. He has gotten so good in just two months! They had their first band concert and it was so good! He's a natural. Unfortunately our video camera was out of commission. I'll have to try to video him playing at home sometime.

A few days before Jim's birthday we went out to buy the stuff for his party. He chose Toy Story as his theme. He was so excited about it! The next day he said, is today my party? Is it my birthday? Finally today came. We went to the park with friends despite the cold weather and played games...
find the hidden army men
played on the playground (Jim was the captain of the ship)
and sang happy birthday and ate cupcakes.
When his brothers got home from school we had another party...
played with presents
sang happy birthday again and ate more cupcakes.
When we were getting ready for bed Jim got sad and said I want my birthday again. I said you had such fun day you don't want it to end? Jim said, Ya.

All summer has been so cloudy and cold at the beach. I was worried it would be the same when my sister and her family came to visit from Utah. But we got lucky and had a beautiful day at Moonlight beach.
