This December started off for us w/ making a great apple pie in honor of USC's victory over UCLA! Jack likes UCLA and I like USC so there was a bit of tension in our household especially after this pie. We also went to L.A. Live which is in downtown L.A. we met a friend there to see the movie The Blindside which we loved. They have this big electrical Christmas tree that looked interesting...I'm sure it looks better at night but I prefer a real tree. It was nice to discover more of L.A. that we never see living away from the city.
