December was busy for us--when isn't it?!?
The weekend before Christmas my mom came down from Simi Valley on the train for a few days. We went to Seaport Village for a nice seafood dinner and to watch the Parade of Lights on the San Diego Bay. It was a chilly San Diego night, but crystal clear!
Nick and I are pictured to the left with my mom, Hope, in the middle, in front of the beautiful red Christmas tree made of 100's of poinsettia flowers stacked in the shape of a tree!
The Pavone Family girls are pictured on the top right: R to L, Hope, Karen, Angelina, Nicole and Gigi.
Here's our Charger Cheerleader with pom poms!! Gigi loves the Chargers, as do we!! They had a great comeback season, but sadly, lost to the Steelers last weekend.
Christmas day, to the right, Alex and David "toast" their new baseball "beer steins"; Alex with his SD Padres, and David with his LA Dodgers. In the hot summer months they can freeze them and then enjoy their favorite, Mountain Dew!!!!
Here's Gigi and Angelina ("Tia" to Gigi) sitting in their new jammies!
Nicole, David and Gigi talking on "skype" to David's brother's family and cousins, with Gigi's baby Elmo close by.
Gigi loves her new pink pony that she can easily ride by herself and even makes pony sounds and plays music!!
Friday after New Year's Nick and David made my family's "Lefsa" (similar to potato tortillas rolled up with melted butter on them). Messy, very messy to make but oh so yummy!!!!
Gigi had her first taste of Lefsa and loved it!! Her great grandfather, my dad, would be proud!!
