January 3rd, 2010 · 4 Comments

So the year is over and a new one begins. Our tree is full and we haven’t begun the next one yet…

Our beach is totally and typically overrun with the amazing annual influx of aliens!!!

Otherwise we went had a garden frenzy of note: Turned out far cheaper to buy a hedge trimmer than pay for help. And after four months of total garden neglect (I never do any jobs besides survival for at least the first three months of a babies life). Just take a look at my audience as I hack and slay the wilderness.

Not to mention, I got a lot of assistance:

We tried out a restaurant, when everyone was far too hot and far too tired… the quickest restaurant stop in the history of the world!!! We will have to try again when everyone is feeling better. We are always looking for a great deli in the South Peninsula…
