After a longer than we expected drive from Lake Havasu City to North LA on Christmas Eve the kids were quite ready to get out of the van to be greeted by their Grandma Jay's open arms and exclamations of how much they have grown and changed in the past few years.
Jay's boyfriend, Nelson, is from El Salvador. It's been fun to speak with him in Spanish. Her neighbors are Venezuelan also so we've had lots of practice. And they all have declared our kids have no accents...us on the other hand. HA! Our kids commented on all the people that are from other countries here in LA.
Tomorrow we head off to the town we grew up in, Hemet. We'll be there for a couple days only. And then we head back to the LA area to spend time with Scott's Mom and step-dad before we head to Nevada for a meeting.
