Christmas 2000 Families Join Together

Merry Christmas

The year is 2000 and all is going well.  These are the first digital photos of our Christmas activities.  We were lucky to have the Chartiers' come and join us for Christmas.  All the way from Connecticut, US of A. 

We enjoyed a great week of visiting and seeing the sights and sharing.

The weather was outstanding and the evening quite mild!

Diane and Pat Porter joined us for Christmas Eve and Dinner making it a special holiday season.

Prior to their arrival we did the Christmas Play and had lunch with the Rockwell Work Family and the other "old standards"

Come share with us...

Christmas 2000 Was A Terrific Celebration

The day after Thanksgiving, the decorating begins and several people pitch in to convert the house to a "wonderland" of old dusty decorations. It takes about two days.

We went  out to lunch with our work family , people we have known for years and work together closely.  Time to remember the year gone by.

We did our typical visit to Rogers Gardens and The Five Crowns to get into the mood and get the latest decorations.

We went to the Christmas Play in Claremont at the Candlelight Dinner Theater for the thirteenth year now with more people added every year.  This year Del and Vicky, our next door neighbors, went with us.

Disneyland on Christmas Eve was mandatory and as usual, the weather was great ad crowds not too bad.  We took the whole gang this year.

Christmas Day is always a blessing in Southern California and in fact we went swimming in the afternoon prior to sitting down for dinner!.

Merry Christmas To All
