Closer to Christmas, & Pretty Pictures

The day started very chilly.  In fact, there was frost on the grass this morning.  In monitoring the temperatures in Surprise and Laguna Woods, they have been very similar for the last two weeks.
Linda finished wrapping the presents we had left, and we loaded them into the car to take to Linda’s Mom’s house, where we’re having our family Christmas celebration.  It was good to see Lois again, and of course it was fantastic to see Pearl again.  We had missed our dog for the last week in AZ.  Lois took very good care of her, but it wasn’t the same for us being in the MoHo with Pearl.  We brought her back to Laguna Woods, where she’ll be comfortable during the Holidays.

We still had a couple of presents to buy, but I couldn’t make up my mind.  We did meet the kids at Downtown Disney to take their annual pictures for Grandma’s wall.  Every year the grandkids get together for pictures, and now it includes the great grandkids for another picture wall.  The kids though that we could get a good background at Downtown Disney.  Well, we forgot that it’s the high tourist season, so it took a while for everyone to get there, park, and then meet up.  But we all made.  While we were waiting I took a couple of pictures of Violet: 

You would never guess that she’s inside a Lego Block!

After everyone got there we decided to try using the anniversary logo for a background:
