Steph and her family from California arrived Friday evening after many delays en-route.  It is so good to see them and to have them a part of my daily life, even for a short period of time.

We are having so much fun!  We have been to favorite restaurants and on Sunday afternoon we went and saw the local ballet production of “The Nut Cracker”.  The kids loved it (as did the adults).  We had great seats (thanks Steph) and I’m not sure we even blinked throughout the performance.  There were two “guest” ballerinas from the San Francisco ballet company and that was a real treat as well.  We did some research on The Nut Cracker and guess what.  The first performance in the US was in 1944 and was performed by the San Francisco Ballet Company!  I thought it delightful that the first company who presented the ballet sent two of their best to assist in this production.

It hasn’t been all fun and games tho.  The day after they arrived the plumbing backed up!  The plumber came yesterday and now everything is working again.  We are all very happy that the potties once again work!

And yesterday afternoon my 8-year old grandson started coming down with a cold.  Umcka to the rescue and we are hoping to have caught it in time so he’ll feel better faster.

Wishing you and yours all the best this beautiful December!
