Four of Us at Disneyland

On Friday, April 12th, 2013, we achieved a significant milestone by releasing a new version of our software. I was able to leave work a little early. Instead of taking the bus home, a co-worker dropped me off at Harbor and MacArthur. Jeri, Elizabeth, and Josiah picked me up in the Carl’s Jr.’s parking lot […]

Disneyland March 2013

Because Tim and Elizabeth’s annual passes for Disneyland expire in mid-April, we’ve been going to Disneyland more often. “We have to get our money’s worth” is the motto. Because we purchased the rest of the family’s passes later, they can go through the end of May. So Tim and Lizzie are sad as the end […]

Opera Magnifica

The OCC Music Department presented “Opera Magnifica!,” directed by Susan Ali, on Saturday, February 23rd, at 8:00 p.m. in the Robert B. Moore Theatre. Students performed arias and ensemble numbers from operatic hits from many lands and many eras. Sarah and Joanna sang “Dew Fairies’ Song” from Humperdink’s opera Hansel and Gretel. They were also […]

Josiah and Tinker Bell

Everyone (except Tim and Jason who had to work) went to California Adventure on Friday (Jan. 18, 2013). The weather was hot…sunny with temperatures reaching the low 80s. They got to the park early and did a number of rides including California Screamin’ (roller coaster), Mickey’s Fun Wheel (ferris wheel with swinging gondolas), Goofy’s Sky […]

Christmas 2012

This year Grandma Stogdill came to spend Christmas with us. As always, we very much enjoyed spending time together with her. Come Christmas morning, we were still wrapping a few presents so we didn’t open presents until early afternoon…and, of course, we had to take our annual Christmas photo before we begin unwrapping. Click on […]

Our “New” Big Screen TV

Back in 2006 when we lived in San Jose, we purchased via Craigslist a beautiful oak entertainment center. Our current TV didn’t come close to filling the opening designated for it. Then we spotted a Craigslist moving sale that listed a nice TV for $50. So Justin and I drove and picked it up…it just […]

A Birthday Visit to Disneyland

Tim was able to take a personal day off from work to celebrate Jeri’s birthday (a day late). Nicole, Victoria, Elizabeth, and Josiah joined us. However after a few hours, Nicole wasn’t feeling well so she and Victoria went home. We enjoyed the new Radiator Springs Racer in California Adventure’s Cars Land. We made it […]
