In November my sweet dad underwent triple bypass surgery, and we are so happy to report that he came through it beautifully. They even took a picture of his heart while they were operating and brought it out to the ICU waiting room to show us. When I told Matt about this, he asked me if dad's heart looked beautiful, because to him, dad's is the most beautiful heart he's ever seen. When dad woke up after the surgery, with tubes in his mouth, etc., I told him what Matt had said, and he got these sweet tears in his eyes. Here we are on the day after the surgery!
Amalia and Gordon were SO nice as to offer us their home while we were in San Fran. Look how darling it is! Thanks, guys - we love you!
These pictures are in kind of random order, but I'll just go with it... We spent some time in San Francisco in November and December, and had a great time with family and friends. This is my friend Kristen Anthony, obviously about to deliver her little boy, Charlie!
Cousins climbing trees!
Chinese lunch (that was not that great, to be honest...). The company was wonderful, though!
More time with the Anthony's! Thai food...much better!
Matt, Sarah, me and Karen at Karen's house. Dave's not in the picture but he was there, too. We love you guys!
