Christmas in California

This year we picked out a live tree at a local lot. Vinny got into the spirit and helped decorate, too.
When Joan first visited our new house, she fell in love with the magnolia trees that line the neighborhood and said they'd make a great wreath. So Mommo, this is for you! I used the trimmings from the Christmas tree, along with some silk flowers and berries. The sleigh, too, is in remembrance of her, since she used to decorate her front door on Center Street with it.
The wind storm and power outage postponed Monrovia's annual Christmas parade, and since the wind uprooted our town's Christmas tree, the festivities were a bit low key compared to years past. But we didn't know any differently! We met up with our neighbors and enjoyed a long, chilly, but colorful parade.
Chillin' with Ella.
Anthony would love to have clients that preferred to go to sporting events, instead he has Broadway musical fans. I certainly didn't mind tagging along on this night...a fancy dinner at Lawry's Steakhouse and onto a show at the beautiful and historic Pantages Theatre on Hollywood Boulevard. Wicked was wonderful! I loved every minute of it!
