Well, I went to Long Beach where Dan has been staying while working at LAX. We tried to find a place to eat for Christmas since we weren't with family and Liz & Gregg didn't have any food in their house since they were traveling in Thailand. We wanted to go to the Claim Jumper, but they weren't open. But we found Coco's...an older one as you can tell by the sign (if you know Coco's). The menu and everything else looked the same IN the restaurant.
They had a cute Christmas tree, so I just had to take a picture of that.
Then Dan went to work and I watched DVDs and cleaned up the kids' kitchen, had hot chocolate, played online...
So it was a quiet time, but at least we were together when he wasn't working. He is home this week and Danielle is visiting with her boyfriend, Steven. It's good to see them and spend time with them - more time than I thought actually. We've had THREE meals with them. They leave on Friday to head back to Eugene, OR. And, of course, I will go back to missing her. But she is doing well.
I hope you all have a very Happy New Year and may 2009 be blessed, fun and full of joy. I pray God would let His presence be known in such a unique way, that you can't mistake His presence or His work in your lives.
Love to you all.
