Happy Holidays!

Hello everyone,

Today I would like to step out of the box a bit and show you my holiday fun.  Every year my Uncle and Aunt invite us to their town Solvang in California and treat us with a day of holiday cheer!  We start off with the annual parade then visit the real Santa !!  We go to a wonderful place in the next town for lunch and then my husband and I shop before we all meet for dinner in Buellton, yum, yum!!  After dinner we all go to my Uncle and Aunt’s house to open presents and enjoy the family.  I am grateful to have such an wonderful family and appreciate them all.  Here is my photo essay of the day!!

Thanks Uncle Ray & Aunt Kay!!
