If you are a blogger and want to get in on the action, click here. I really like the card pictured here and I toyed with the idea of not doing cards at all. OR maybe doing New Years cards since I will get the opportunity to get all of the kids together for Christmas Eve.
Every card has to have a picture. Check out this link and pick out your favorites. There so many cool things to choose from and I am surprised that the prices are so reasonable! This card is pretty festive and I would be so torn on which pictures to choose. What do you think? Please drop a comment and let me know which design/direction I should do.

Last Tuesday, there was a severe storm here in the valley that produced winds that had to be atleast 70 mph, golf ball sized hair, quarter sized hail and was over all, unlike any storm I have ever been through. This is the aftermath. I took video and will try and upload it. I wanted to take pictures of Jimmy last night sweeping the roof. We lucked out at the house and the only damage we have is a broken condensation line on the air conditioner and plastic chairs with big holes in them that are now going to chair heaven. The neighbors trees were shredded onto the lawn and into the pool. Jimmy is cleaning up the yard today. Stay tuned for video!

We finally got to escape the heat and take a vacation! We drove to Palm Springs to break up the driving and spent the night there, got up then headed to Palmdale, CA to see my Dad and Hanh. We went to the Peach Orchard and picked more fruit than I thought possible. We had a nice visit with Dad and Hanh and even got to play a 3 hour game of Mexican poker.
The next day we set out for San Diego. The traffic gods were on our side and we got there before noon. Just in time for Jimmy to hop on a boat and go sport fishing! He was in hog heaven and so was I. I got to lay by the pool and read a magazine (something I never get to do on vacation).
We also got to spend a couple of nights in Huntington Beach. I reminded Jimmy it was basically the exact same trip we took when we got engaged, minus the Palm Springs and Palmdale stops. We got to hang with our good friends Tamara and Pierre and thier little munchkin Sebastian. Looking forward to taking more vacations!
Jimmy and I took the train to down town and walked around a bit. We went to the new Hyatt property on 5th called Andaz and went up to the roof where they have a bar, pool and amazing views. You can see the view from the roof. The Padres were playing at Petco park and we could see and hear it!

Jimmy and I were able to leave work around 1pm, head over to Sliders to enjoy some food, drinks and company of our fellow managers. It was a nice break in the day. We got to go to the D-backs Vs. Padres. It was also the first grandslam that I have been in the park for. Brandon Allen hit a grandslam in the 7th inning and the D-backs won 5-2. It was pretty awesome. Our GM gave each of us an authentic game ball that the Oakland As used for practice. I made James pose for this pic and I also told my brother that he caught the grandslam ball. Too bad we were sitting in left field and the grandslam was hit in right field. After I had him going for a while, I told him the real story!
