Stanford vs. UCLA, Part I

The two of us and our parents went to the UCLA-Stanford game at the Rose Bowl on Saturday.  Sadly, we will not be in attendance for Part II this Friday, which is the game that will determine who goes to the Rose Bowl.  But we will be watching and one of us will be happy on Saturday. 

The weather was amazing. 

This one made the Christmas Card.

Thanksgiving 2012

Can you tell we're related?
We had a nice low-key Thanksgiving in SoCal this year, which was fitting with all the loss we have had as a family this year.  There were 7 of us, both our parents and Christine's brother Jonathan.   The food was, as always, delish. I'm still looking for the picture of Curtis carving the "roast beast."

Lakers-Rockets Game with Jackie

When I decided to fly out to California the Friday before Thanksgiving to attend Aunt Julie's memorial service, I knew that I had to work in something fun with my new found time in California.  I'm usually only there for a few days with enough time to see family and friends and maybe go to one favorite restaurant.  With 10 days, I knew I had a rare opportunity to do something extra, and something to take my mind off of why I was in town early.  

With the Lakers coaching change and the additions of Steve Nash (who was injured) and Dwight Howard, I thought a Laker game would be fun, and it was. 

Seats were pretty good :-) 
Jackie and I met up for dinner at the Yard House (one of my faves) at LA Live before the game, and watched a great Lakers game against the Rockets and Jeremy Lin/James Harden.  Very fun outing and well worth it - I'm just sorry I don't have a picture of Jackie and I :-(.

Fall 2012: Pet Walk

Curtis and Kenny met up with Stephanie and Brandy on Saturday, November 17th to do a 2 mile pet walk to benefit a local animal shelter/rescue organization.  It was exciting for these two dogs to finally meet and from what I understand they got along really well!

It really needs no explanation:
