My Xmas Card 2008

Happy Holidays, Merry Christmas
& A Happy New Year!!!

I have been creating our personal printed Xmas card for the last seven years - except for last year. Each card had always an internet version as well. ... It is interesting how taste, style and of course my ability to create the card in the first place has changed over the years...
Check out our Xmas Card 2008

Previous Years:
2006 [ German version ]
2005 [ Collage ]
2004 [ Hawaii style ]
2003 [ Rudolph The Red Nose Reindeer ]
2002 [ Very first one ]

Santa Paula Canyon Hike

On April 27, 2008 we got up early (at least we considered it early) and drove towards Santa Paula, CA. Sunday's hike was Santa Paula Canyon along the creek.
Peter was so nice as to organize the trip and guide the hike. The scenery along the canyon trail was amazing: I remember in particular pointing out all these different "beautiful, tiny" flowers a long our way... It turned out we picked the right time of the year, for everything was blooming and the creek was filled with lots of water (Although this may sound very refreshing, I like to mention it was very hot).
After the hike but before Peter's car's odometer hit 123456 (mi), he brought the difference between a Freeze and a Float to our attention! Very delicious, btw.

Uli's Surprise Birthday Party

Huge ' Thank You ' to everybody for making Feb 22 an unforgettable evening. Uli had lots of fun and was surprisingly really surprised: He really didn't know, suspect nor notice anything until the first guests had arrived...
Don't forget to check out the pics of that evening. Gallery [ pw required ]

Big gap

I haven't had a chance to post anything lately. A lot of pictures are still due - no galleries for these have been created so far.
Yet, I think it is still time to say: Happy New Year ... and I hope I will be back with new posts on a more often basis.

East Canyon Hike

Sunday, October 28 - right after the "fires" we did a short morning hike at East Canyon in Valencia. The group was small; the hike was steep... We had a great time!
