Deke used his Photoshop expertize to produce this photo of Tommy rising out of the clouds.
Erin, Paco, and Tommy have gone to Shannon’s for a couple of days. It is very quiet around here!

Paco was so excited to see his friend David tonight. They have been talking on Skype for several hours a day for the past 5 days. They were classmates in Davis ever since 1st grade.
Paco will spend a couple of nights at David’s. It was so quiet after they left with no interaction between Paco and Tommy. Tommy just quietly used his iPad.
My nephew Alan, wife Lisa, and daughters Kayla and Alyssa stopped by this afternoon
on their way to have Christmas dinner with Alan’s sister Janet up in Truckee. My sister
Joan and husband Ralph and other members of Joan’s family will be joining them.
Paco and Tommy always have a good time with their 2nd cousins. They are pictured sipping
out of a connecting straw set made up of about 50 straws. Hope that nobody has a cold!
Erin found the set at World Market when she went shopping with Shannon last week.
Alan and Lisa have been so good about visiting Erin when they are in the area.
Brandon, Lisa, and Beck were over for present opening and brunch. Erin held up well.
Shannon took Erin shopping today for stocking stuffers for the boys who arrive on Monday. They left here about 12:30 and weren’t home by the time we left for bridge at 5:45 pm. Erin said she slept afterwards, but woke up just before we got home. She had bought Mexican food as a snack for Clark. She also brought some great looking Dark Chocolate Sea Salt carmel corn clusters.
I will have to test those some other time because I am on liquid diet for 3 days, then on a soft food diet for another week because I had laser surgery on my gums yesterday. It is a new procedure they have been doing for about 6 months to treat deep pockets in the gums.
Shannon invited Erin to go with her last night to the “book group” gathering, but Erin declined, wisely saving her energy for the shopping expedition today. Shannon is a super good friend.
