It is a whole different scene at the beach in the winter. This is the day after xmas and it was amazing. I had really expected lots of drift wood washed up on the beach because of all of the storms we have been having, but there wasn't much.
The boys really wanted to go in the water...
The ocean was wild.
Boys had a fun time getting all sandy and cutting down the sand cliff.
Last weekend we went to a Christmas party at my FIL's. And Santa arrived with gifts for everyone!
The children were in awe (and a little afraid)
Luke is not so sure about this Santa guy.
But Jack, after Santa left, said "that was grandpa" and I asked him why he thought that and he said "grandpa was the only one not in the room" when Santa was there... That kid is too smart. We said he was in the bathroom, but I'm not sure Jack bought it. I did say that he was a Santa helper, because Santa is busy this time of year.
So, we have had and are still having some severe weather...
The park that we walk to is closed!
And the mighty San Lorenzo River is raging!
And a tree fell down which wiped out the bridge we walk over when we walk the boys to school.
(We heard a loud boom and I felt the ground shake and then we went exploring to find this!)
As soon as christmas is over (which won't be the same with out Ron and Gloria here) I am ready for summer!
