The reason we went to California on such short notice was my mom recently found some of her cousins on Facebook and they wanted to get together because they haven't seen each other for like 30 years. My mom wanted our family to come to the reunion and so - we did. We had such a great time and I got to meet family that I have never met before- at least I don't remember them because I was too young. It was a wonderful Christmas gift, the gift of family. Hopefully it won't be another 30 years before we all get together again.
