Merry Christmas from Booksin Band

We hope 2014 is Best Year Ever!

2013 was our best year ever!

We began with a family trip to Banff, Canada, celebrating our 20th Anniversary and spent two summer weeks in China with cousin Kiana & Family. We toured fourteen California missions along El Camino Real, and we still found time to see Yosemite Valley, Big Sur, and Hearst Castle, […]

Merry Christmas to All!

And by “all,” she means all!

For a special holiday project this year, Felicia decided to make blankets as gifts. But these aren’t just any gifts, they are gifts she’s donating to Sacred Heart Community Service in the name of each gift’s recipients. That means, you aren’t getting one; instead, you’ll get a warm […]

Happy New Year from Banff!

#MK20 Continues through 2012 and beyond! … It’s midnight in Toronto, right?

We’re not sure of a better way to spend the last day of any given year than snowboarding. While our usual gig would be a day at Sugar Bowl followed by fireworks at Northstar-at-Tahoe, we found another fun way […]

Rockin’ Around the Christmas Tree

A Christmas Carol … with an Apostrophe?

Most of our traditional Christmas Carol gifts recall events of the past year, most obviously “I Saw Three Ships,” which celebrated Felicia’s arrival in the family. The 2012 Carol borrows from two big trips that the Girls & David took without Mommy, who had to work. We missed […]
