Between all the usual annual doctor, dentist and eye appointments we spent a lot of time visiting with family and friends.
Then it was off to lunch with Brian.
Another visit with my high school friends, Debbie and Chris. I really miss these two! Some other friends were sick so we didn't get to see everyone we wanted.
Back at my parents I came across some pictures of my Dad when he was in the Navy.
Our handsome Dad!

We also spent some time with Jim and Jenny at Out of Bounds Brewery. Steve loved their hazy IPAs.
We did a little geocaching and came across a pond with some swans.
While out walking with Tina we came across this sign. We didn't see any Vikings though.
Now that all the smoke is gone we have been enjoying beautiful skies and sunsets.
This was before the storm. They really get a lot of snow up here.
Tahoe in the far distance coming up over Echo Pass, just over 7000 feet.
I'm glad we didn't get the Jammie memo! They looked adorable though!
Ryan, Shane, Brennan and Kaylee having a little sibling fun.
Diana (Ryan's fiancé), Alex (Brennan's girlfriend) and Jenna (Shane's girlfriend).
We also had fun playing Bocce in the snow and ice.
We left Tahoe Christmas Eve Day and headed home for Christmas with the rest of the family.
We had our favorite ravioli from Lucca's in San Francisco that our son picked up for us. I made the meatballs. There was ham and other yummy side dishes too.
Everyone here but my sister who was with her family in San Jose. John and Tina joined us too.
Kevin, Judy, Tina, John, Steve, Me and Kris.
A new brewery opened up. That makes 3 just in the area of our small town. Hwy 50 Brewery had some great pizza but Steve did not care for the beer.
And for New Years....
We had dinner out with John and Tina. They had a special dinner for the night. Tina and I had the Schnitzel and the guys had the Lamb Shank. It was delicious!
After dinner, John and Tina decided to head back to the Elks and relax. The temps were very cold and it was very windy. We went on to my brothers for their annual bonfire and fun.
And for the rest of our friends and family we couldn't be with:
Happy New Year!!
