New York 2009: Christmas Eve to New Year's Eve

Times Square December 31, 2009 4:22 A.M. In twenty-four hours, this place will be crowded and covered with litter! Just to clarify, in this photo we are on our way to the airport for our return to San Diego. They had to bring in the new year in New York without us. I pulled the second two images from the web the next day.

South Street Seaport Museum
Treasures of a President: FDR and the Sea

Daniel was again our faithful driver to and from the airport!

Brandon's Birthday!


video






Of course, the big bonus of going to Utah is the time we get to spend with our own dear family. Here are some scenes and a movie of events surrounding Christmas and Brandon's ninth birthday.

I call your attention to the electric train under the Christmas tree. The hills, trees, and other features were hand made by Scott and Sasha and the family. What a great project and a great tradition!

 

Lauren & Dan Snow






Since we were in Utah, we slipped by the Salt Lake Temple to greet the Carr and Chambers families right after an eternal marriage in their family. We really enjoyed knowing the Carrs when they lived here in La Mesa, and Lauren has always been especially dear to Lupe.

Lupe is pictured with Sister Carr, and Brother Carr is the doting dad with the camera. I am standing next to Grandpa Chambers, our former stake president.

 

Congratulations, Tia & Darren!














Lupe and I were fortunate enough to snag a couple of seats on Delta, borrow a car, and make it to the Timpanogas Temple for the wedding. It was wonderful to celebrate Darren's and Tia's eternal marriage, and to commune with loved ones from around the world, literally.

I draw your attention to the silver pocket watch in two of these pictures. I take it to significant family events to record historic moments. (For more history on the watch, see the Lunt Reunion blog from July of 2008.)
