So we tried something new this year and tried to cut the drive down by flying then renting a car and driving up to the far northern parts of the golden state. Where I accompanied my grandparents to a party where awkward conversations about why my Chinese husband has no desire to live in God's country. Hint... there not many of his kind here ;)

It is pretty here and on a lighter note here are some pictures from our festive adventures!

Oh and my grandparents decided that for Christmas we're all going to the local casino buffet, cuz we're grinchy like that! :)
