Kenny and the newest addition to their family, Marie!Windstorm 2006! The power went out for about 18 hours at our house, because of a massive windstorm. We were lucky, though. For some people in the area, the power was out for days! The Eastside was particularly hard hit. The temperature went to 57 degrees inside, so we bundled up.

At California Pizza KitchenWe watched the Snowflake Lane Christmas display, which was a little disappointing. It was basically just the tin soldiers crossing the street, then playing the drums, some artificial snow falling, and snowflake patterns being projected on the wall.
