DECEMBER - Visitors from Bethlehem
Catharine & Krystol brave a trip
across the county and just get in before the storm of the decade.
The flight was even early, but the delay was getting to Peter &
Zia's home via the flooded freeway. After the storm, we enjoy a
family dinner together. Merry Christmas to all!
NOVEMBER - Daly Thanksgiving
Continuing with a tradition that spans
decades now, we pack up a cooked turkey, sing 'Turkey in the Trunk' all
the way to Woodside and enjoy both good food and family company.
Here are Peter and Kate Daly with Jo-Ann. The grand-twins joined
us and loved the horse rides. "That sure is a big pony Grandpa!"

FEBRUARY - Visitors from Bethlehem
Cath and Krystol come to visit for a
