Christmastime in San Diego! It may not be white but it sure is cheery! Everyone is decked out for Christmas and in a rather good mood. Including the Barker family. A rare occasion we're all getting along once we're tossed into the same house together! I flew in earlier this month from Guam. A nice respite from the Rock. I got my Target/Starbucks/Miguels fix and that makes me happy! The whole family is getting ready for Christmas Eve dinner tomorrow night, including me! We needed a wreath for the front door so I ran out to Home Depot and raided their tree branch bin...for free! The Barker family wreath officially cost me NOTHING this year! Which is good considering my recent visit to my old pal Nordstrom this week.
