It has been quite a while since I last posted anything. School has been busy and I need to get some photos organized before I put up another China post. Last Friday, only a few hours after school was out, I hopped on a plane to fly back to California. Jon met me in L.A. and we enjoyed Smith Family Christmas in Huntington Beach. I met two new family members, Mason and Lyra, and loved seeing everyone else. Here is our four generation family photo with everyone who was able to make it:
First generation: Great Uncle Burl and Great Aunt Pat
Second generation: Jerilynn & Ray, Geoff & Heidi, Mom, Mark & Nadiya, Cynthia
Third generation: Catherine & Naysan, Jon & me, Ashley & Ryan, Jessica, Sergey
Fourth generation: Mikial, Kian, Isla, Mason, Lyra
Now, I am up in Santa Cruz and looking forward to spending Christmas Eve and Christmas Day with Jon's family and then my dad's side of the family.
