Christmas Back Home 2010

Sometimes you really can go back home.  We were fortunate to spend Christmas at my Mom's in the same house I grew up in, in Southern CA.  What a treat to be with my side of the family.
From having Raclette at my sister & bro in laws home on Christmas eve to brunch at mom's on Christmas Day.  I know a good time was had by all.
'Here are some of the pictures to share with you.

A Walk Around Mom's Backyard

We had the privilege of welcoming home our daughter and son in law from a tour of duty that had them living over seas for 4 years.  We are finally all back together in the same time zone.  They are in the process of relocating and reconnecting with family and friends.

I took a quick trip around my mom's backyard, while everyone was busy with other things.  Must shoot something!!  Here is a quick trip around the yard.   And yes.....I am thrilled they are back.













 The pictures below(done with an HDR process) are of the Century Plant, it has grown so big over the years.
