Surviving the Holidays

Well, it looks like I managed to survive yet another year. Even though 2008 was a tough year, Ellen and I managed to get through it quite well.

We started off the holiday season by attending an evening barbecue put on by the gentlemen Ellen works with at Monogram Systems. These are some of the best people I have had the pleasure to meet. All of them are hard workers and good people.

Christmas day was awesome! Santa was good to the both of us. Ellen got a navigation radio for her car, like the one I have in my truck and an Elmo Live. I found a set of shop manuals for the Hummer and AirDoc performance air intake.

Ellen's folks came over for Christmas dinner. We enjoyed a one of the best rib roasts we have ever had.

We also made a trip to Modesto to see my brother and his family for the weekend after Christmas.

New years was just as awesome. I was invited to a party by Mario, a coworker at Raytheon. It was a small group of great people. It also gave Ellen a chance to meet a few more people I work with. The kids were busy playing Rock Band (well, some adults joined in too!). Later in the evening, a mini jam session started which even Ellen joined in on.

To wrap-up my holiday vacation, I spent today at my dad's house to do a little male bonding and install the performance air intake kit on the Hummer.

I am sure looking forward to the rest of 2009! I hope everyone had a Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year!
