The Holidays

We had the most wonderful time being with family for the Christmas season. With Grandmas Ellen and Auntie Robyn we made Christmas chocolate chip cookies and had Grandma's famous turkeuy soup for Christmas Eve.  We were at Grandma Sue's house for Christmas morning.  Charlie and Gracie enjoyed opening presents and playing with all their new toys.  Charlie and Gracie helped Grandma Sue make pies for our family Christmas celebration on New Year's Day.  This year we ventured out to Pasadena to see the Rose Parade floats in person.  We were in awe of all the flowers and work that goes in to making that parade a hit!  We had our last High School camp just after the holidays.  Last weekend we had the biggest junior counselor training weekend ever.  We had 27 potential junior counselor.  It has been a wirlwind, but such a joy.  We now have a little down time to recuperate and get ready for the rest of the winter camp season.  We look forward to it!
