Let's Play Volleyball!

Here Nathan is holding the Wilson VB Ball.  He is happy while holding a ball.
This little bird came up super close to us while we were climbing the lifeguard tower.  I think he was hungry and thought we might have food with us.

Beach Volleyball Day!!!

We had 10 of us today at Knob Hill including Nathan.  
Two courts set up with lines.
This is one of the reasons to be there!
Nathan getting comfortable in the sand.  He sat and watched while I played 4 games today.  He had snacks, sand toys and balls to play with.  He did great.  It was really nice down there, except when we first got there the sand was freezing, so I put on my sand socks.
I tried to get a good photo of Nathan and I.  I must have really stunk after playing four doubles games today.  Only lost one game by 2 points.  Great day!

Sandi called to say Hello

I love chatting on the phone with family.  Call me sometime.
Still loving looking at the tree.
Who is this on the phone?  My Mom or Sandi?, hard to tell!
I can talk to you all about these ornaments Sandi.

Christmas Tree Wonder for Nathan

Nathan was so excited to see the tree today after his nap.
Can you see the joy at looking at these ornaments for the first time.
He laughed out loud when he saw the abominable snow monster with Rudolf.

Teasers of the Martin Family Christmas Photo

Here are couple photos in prep for the Martin's Christmas Photo.
It's not easy getting a good photo, when one of the subjects is in continual motion! 
 That was Nathan.

More Martins

This is for Ryan, Kelly and Rachel....We missed you!!!

After the feast!
Relaxing until dessert.
Grandpa craved the turkey for us this year again, thanks dad!  Here he is gathering his plate of food.
Here is most of the food.
22lb. Bird, not easy to lift.

Martin Photo Session-Painless

Amber asked me to take a few photos for their Christmas Card.  It was really pretty lighting and we got some good shots.  I like this one of Nathan with Amber in the back round.

The stork dropping Nathan off from Heaven.
Nathan loved being tossed in the air by Kevin.  Amber looks a little worried in this shot.  I think Nathan could have done this all day long.

Volleyball Day & Nathan & Fog & Sun

At our home it was HOT and SUNNY.  When we got to the Beach it was FOGGY and COLD.  It didn't last long.  I had forgotten Nathan's jacket, so he is wearing mine.  He sat here just watching for a long time.  It was very unlike him.  He is pretty much on the go all the time.  It might have been the sand that kept him sitting.  Who knows?
Here are some of my VB buddies playing in the FOG.  I don't think Kim's serve made it over the net.   Nathan here below happily watching the action, which he loves.  I know,  I've asked him if he likes watching VB.  He always says yes, which he says to just about everything.
