Do you believe in Christmas?

by on December 8, 2008

After all of our friends arrived safe and sound (group one arrived at 1:30 am, group two arrived at 3:30 am, after allegedly driving 120 on the freeway in Pasadena), we got a little bit of sleep and were roused in the morning by a very energetic and social Emmett.  Mrs. Kong went out to Temple City to get her hairs cut, and the rest of us waited patiently and ate banana bread muffins.

After we were gathered once again, we ate some breakfast provided by the newly shorn Marina and headed on our way to the Winter Wonderland that is Disneyland in December.

Everyone was pretty pooped by the end of the day.  On Sunday, we went to Yum Cha at New Capital, and then Vincent took us over to the Google offices in Santa Monica:
