Buying our tree from the salmon fish stand. 🙂 My Dad saw us there when driving by, so he pulled over and helped out!

This is a quirky, fun, island annual event, a Christmas carol sing-a-long at our little one screen movie theater. Everyone’s favorite song is the 12 Dogs of Christmas, where you stand up every time your dog is listed. 🙂

We spent a week traveling down the coast a bit on Hwy 101, staying at quirky beach front hotels in Oregon and camping in the Redwood forest for a couple of nights in California. When we arrived at the camp ground, the kids said, WOW, this looks just like HOME! Ha. Although a good time was had by all, I think next time we will find a little beach front hotel or house and spend a few days just playing in the waves, because although we live on an island, it is an inland island, with no waves, and beach waves were a big, fun change for our peeps. 🙂
