Family Here For Christmas!

I hope to post some Christmas-time pictures here one of these days, but for now if you are interested you can read the Letkemans' blog about their time here in California. Susan is Bill's sister, she and Ron with their three kids, Daniel, Lindsay & Matthew are here. So are Ann (Bill's other sister), Mark & Ethan.

Christmas Lights

Our humble little Christmas tree.
Each year that we've been married, Bill and I have picked out an ornament with which to remember that year. I made several of them, others were things we bought together. Today it was fun to reminisce as we unpacked them and put them on our 1.5 ft high tree!

I love Christmas lights!


I was happily doing my grocery shopping last week in my favorite place - Trader Joe's - and I bumped into a very familiar product, but one that I'd never seen sold in the USA. We call it Bocadillo in Colombia. I am sure you can find it in other Latin American countries, but the what I found is actually from Colombia, and cheap at $1.29 for 10 pieces. Very cool.
