This has been a week of Christmas programs. Gabe has been learning to play the trumpet for the last couple of months, and last Thursday night was the school band, orchestra and choir program. Gabe was chosen out of the band, along with two baritone players, as "super beginners," and played a song, just the three of them. They did really well. Ruby is learning to play the violin and beginning strings did very well too.
On Friday, Aaron and Christa went down to Mission Viejo where Aaron had been chosen to ref the CIF 2-AA California State Championship game, a very high honor (Aaron is on the far right).
They spent the night, and the grandkids stayed with us. Mark spent most of the weekend running the clock at various basketball tournament games. So on Friday night, the kids and I went to Old Spaghetti Factory for dinner, and sat in the trolley car.
