Family Time Smile!

Thanksgiving collage

What a great week I had. First, I flew up to NorCal and spent Thanksgiving (plus a few days more) with my daughter Diane. I also got to hang out with her hubby Sam and their adorable doggos Rory and Lily. Lily is a puppy and needed some time to get used to me, but once she did she was so sweet! We had all kinds of yummy food, colored, and played a bunch of board games. We watched movies too: King Richard, 8-Bit Christmas, and Red Notice. We didn’t go anywhere, just enjoyed being together and cuddling with the puppies. I think I had a slice of pumpkin pie every day, which is what happens when you buy the enormous one from Costco.

When I returned, it was time to celebrate Chanukah with my daughter Sharon, her hubby, and their kids. It was a lot of fun to play with my grands and walk over to the Pico carnival. Sharon’s in-laws joined us as well. We had donuts and latkes and pizza, which were all delicious, and we lit the menorah after sundown. On my way home, I stopped at a restaurant where friends were having dinner and managed to squeeze in one more game before my vacation ended. I love my job, but sometimes it’s nice to have a break, especially when I get to see my favorite peeps!
