We celebrated Stephanie’s 16th birthday with the Uematsus at Aki Restaurant in Santa Monica.
On Jan. 15, 2011, Barbara Oliver & Ron Burgess were married at the Surf & Sand Resort in Laguna Beach. The weather was fabulously warm and the skies clear. The ceremony took place just before sunset. Barbara’s daughter, Lena, was the Maid of Honor.
We held a lock-in laser tag party at Laser Storm in Torrance for Morgan's 13th birthday. Ron stayed up all night with the girls. Actually, only a few stayed up all night. Most had gone to sleep, at least for a couple of hours, in one of the event rooms.
Morgan and Jennifer try making Fried Oreos for the first time. They dipped the oreos in pancake batter and deep fried them.
We held oshogatsu at our home again. This year was much less hectic than last year, probably because we had many fewer people drop by.
