We were able to accompany Rebecca to one of her "sites" and help her with her field work. If you know anyone who is looking for Field Assistants, we come with experience and could get a letter of recommendation from Rebecca is necessary!

These are Ray & my nieces, L to R, Monica, Mersadie, Becca (our daughter), Leslie (nil), Anna, Sandie and Lea.
I decided that there may not be a chance for all of us to be together again as an entire family and there is a lot of the Hernandez's and extended families, so I made each of the girls an apron. I used to sew for them when they were little for their dolls etc. It was fun picking out fabric and Becca was so helpful in selecting which print fitted which niece. Love you all!

Whoo Hoo!! I am finally retired! I worked for several years for SVUSD, at Foothill Ranch Elementary and my final year and a half at El Toro High School. It was a wonderful experience and it afforded us the ability to put both of our girls through college so that I am so thankful for. I will miss all my friends that I have made, but know that I will see them outside of work as well so that will make this transition an easy one!

My friend Lynn Will has an annual Christmas Tea with her friends at her lovely home in Mission Viejo. She spends many hours preparing the handmade invitations, epicurean delights, beautiful guest gifts, and decor. Thank you for sharing this with me, I look forward to starting the holidays with this celebration.

This is the Tejon Pass as we cross over it making our way up north to Jer & Teresa's home for Thanksgiving. We aren't quite sure of what lies ahead, but if this is any indication of the beginning of a storm, we are in for a white Thanksgiving!
On our way up, we got a call from Teresa, saying that we could not get up into the property, so we needed to stay in a hotel for the night and then Jer would be getting off work and we would drive up with him to a certain point, transfer everything from our car to his and then drive into the ranch. It's an adventure! Just look at that beautiful snow!
