Christmas 2007

We celebrated Christmas in California this year. We started the day with french toast, fruit salad, eggs, and chocolate cake and ended the day with fried shrimp and calamari, chili verde, baked cod, ham, and of course another chocolate cake (and lots of other deserts).

We got out for a walk along SF Bay between meals and also had fun with a yankee swap. Shell and I are the proud new owners of a much sought-after National Parks Monopoly Game.

We had 13 people for dinner, which is a new record for our little cottage! Shelley's parents and Uncle Don flew in for the holiday, and Uncle Den and Aunt Margaret drove down from Lincoln. Our cousins Ryan and Marcela and Shannon and Gavin were also here, along with Jen, Scott, and the two of us. It was a nice gathering and very good to see everyone.

Christmas Tree

We cut our Christmas tree last weekend. It was the first time we cut a tree in California and the tree species are different from those in Kennebunk. The tree trunks are narrower here, making them a lot lighter to carry (a good thing since I wouldn't let Shell help carry the tree). But we missed the snow!

We like our little's happy.

Baby Shower!

My sister hosted an amazing baby shower for us this past weekend. Family, friends, and great food!

Shelley and I really enjoyed the party and appreciated the opportunity to celebrate and catch up with our extended family in Boston.

Turkey Day in Maine

We celebrated Thanksgiving in Maine. My Mom and Dad chef'ed up an incredible feast while Rachel and Jacob entertained all of the adults.

Hiking with Jacob

On Sunday we took our nephew Jacob on a hike at the Fells, just outside of Boston. He likes the "castle" at the top of the hill. It was a beautiful fall day in New England!

Steveo and Rachel's Wedding, Sept 2007

We went down to southern California for my buddy Steveo's wedding. He and Rachel had a beautiful ceremony right on a vineyard in Paso Robles.

Shelley may be pregnant, but she still plays a solid game of bocce!

Here are a few great pics from Noah and Linda's wedding back in July.
