we had a great weekend being with family and celebrating my grandma’s life. i loved hearing how other people remember her, the impact she had on their lives, and celebrating her life. A simple life, but one lived by consistently loving others well. I want to be like that.

One great thing about memorials, is they bring families together. The cousins had a ball, as usual.We got to help my sisters (aka aunties) move into their new (darling) house.
David was showered with lots of love and attention.
We had dinner at Old Spaghetti Factory in Fullerton, which is located in the old train station. The new train station was built right next door, so we went out to watch the sun set and the trains come in. The kids loved it!
It was also so wonderful to see my cousins, aunts and uncles and extended family we don’t see nearly enough. And their kids *gasp are so big!!

Thanks for all your comments on fall. I feel the urge to go buy pumpkins and cider! I’ll plan to choose a winner (through a randomly generated number) in the next couple days.
