We hosted a wonderful "going away" party tonight for my dear friend and her kids. It's their last night in California as tomorrow they make the drive to Portland. The party had a California theme and everything was very colorful. Bright tablecloths, lots of pink flamingos and umbrellas for the cocktails. I even made a special CD of party music. The "party song list" included a few beach boys songs and then 40 other songs all named "California". Did you know there are over 1000 songs on itunes with the name "California" in the title? Amazing.
Tomorrow will be a big day around here in anticipation for the World Cup soccer game at 11:30. My youngest has actually built a "shrine"in his room with a US flag, USA official soccer jersey and various other USA items. You shoud know though, during the game the shrine comes down as he actually wears all of the items to support the team!
