Weekend in SCV

This past weekend was Winter Camp at Forest Home for the high school students we work with at church. Ella has gone to camp with us before but this year she was deemed too old to go. So, Brett went off to camp with the students and Ella and I headed to Santa Clarita to visit family instead. It was an eating and shopping extravaganza! I got lots of new clothes and supplies for our Italy trip next month and was treated to some great food. Ella had lots of fun hanging with all of her grandparents and playing with all of the toys there. Of course, she also came up with a phrase I haven't heard from her before. While visiting both the Getskow and Piersma homes, she said "I love this place!" Nanna & Poppa Jack and Grandma & Poppa Randy all have lots of fun toys (not to mention hugs & kisses) for Ella. Why wouldn't she love it there?! I suppose the treats they give her don't hurt either. Poppa Jack introduced her to Banana Cream Pie and Pecan Pie. Overall, it was a great weekend. Thanks guys!

Alas, I don't have any photos! Brett took our digital camera to camp to take pictures of the festivities there.
