Happy Holidays, 2012!

Merry Christmas from Cars Land

Season’s greetings from Tim and Cindy!

Things we did this year:

Visited Cindy’s family in Snohomish, WA

Toured Dodgers Stadium and Wrigley Field

Sneak previewed Disney’s new Cars Land twice (!)

Spent the weekend with famous Disney "Legends” at the Smoke Tree Ranch in Palm Springs 

Sailed to Catalina Island aboard the WWII ship Lane Victory     

Discovered narrow-gauge railroading with friends in Arroyo Grande, CA 

Season tickets to the Hollywood Bowl and Ahmanson theater, including the amazing play War Horse     

Saw the space shuttle Endeavour toodling down the streets of L.A.    

What we’re grateful for:

Family, friends, jobs we still love, and good health

My sister Vicki and me at Cars Land (yes, it was
an all-Disney year!)

Our cats Beanie and Cecil, who continue to bring us much joy

The boys: Beanie and Cecil

Our beautiful home and gardens

The Metro light-rail that takes Tim to work every day 

Four more years of the Obama administration (yay!) 

What we’re looking forward to in 2013:

Baseball spring training in Arizona

Being part of the Theodore Payne Foundation’s native plants garden tour for the 4th year in a row (!)

American Library Association conference in Chicago

A possible Disney cruise in the fall (fingers crossed)

Celebrating Cindy’s 60th birthday (yikes!)

Peace and happiness to you all in 2013!
