316. This is it!

This is it! Technically, this is my last post! I can't believe it's already been a year since I started this Blog... Time really does fly!
I have received a lot of nice comments about this project; Mostly from family members and close friends. But it's nice to know that someone is reading it!
I might not have 365 posts (I did skip a few days here and there), but I have way more than 365 photos! And I have all these wonderful memories. Memories that will be with us forever, since they were not only capture on film but also written about. I have already begun creating a book from these blog posts. I think it will be wonderful to look back, say, in ten years, at what happened in 2011.
I have also decided to start another Project 365. But this time, using only my iphone and the instagram app. I will be posting at least one photo on my Facebook wall everyday for the next year. I am hoping that since the iphone is always with me and that it's so easy to post directly on Facebook, I will be able to complete the project and post a photo everyday for the next 365.
So for now, for this Blog, this is the end... This is good bye!

P.S. Catie appears to be doing slightly better. She went to the vet. yesterday and was put on a cocktail of drugs (anti-inflammatory meds, muscle relaxants and pain killers). She is still having difficulties getting up but she looks more comfortable. Lets hope that the drugs will do the trick.

315. Happy New Year!

Wishing everyone a New Year of Health and Happiness!

314. Limping

Catie woke up this morning with a sore paw. She came down the stairs very slowly and immediately started limping. I had to cut our walk short because she could barely keep up. And as the day is going by, her pain seems to be progressively getting worse.
She has been laying down in the same spot all day. I have to pick her up for her to stand. And then she limps. Her paw seems to be swollen too.
Poor girl... I hope it's nothing serious. I called the veterinarian and had to insist that they see her before Monday. They agreed to take a look at tomorrow; But we have to drop her off. They will see her in-between other patients, when they get a chance. In the meantime, we are trying to keep her as comfortable as possible.

313. Mission Impossible

I took the boys to see the new "Mission Impossible" movie this afternoon; We all agreed it was pretty good and had plenty of action. There are a lot of good movies playing in theaters right now. The whole family agreed that "I bought a zoo" looks fun, "Sherlock Holmes" is definitely a must see and I, personally would like to see "War Horse". Of course, we probably won't see all of them at the theater, but we can surely see them when they come out of DVD!

312. Kindergarten Art

In December, Allan took an online class to learn how to program in JAVA. I can say that he had fun and learned a lot. One of his last project was called "Kindergarten Art". There were a lot of things that had to be included in the project and apparently, Allan did very well, earning him a "Well Done" from his teacher. Here is the project in question:

I think it is great and just wanted to share it with all of you!

311. Mentryville

I love the holidays and having some time off; It gives us a chance to go hiking almost everyday. Today, we went to Mentryville, just off the I-5, at the end of Pico Canyon Road. Mentryville was an oil drilling town back in the 1870s. Today, the only buildings left are Charles Mentry's mansion, a one room school house and a barn. It is definitely a great location for photo shoots and I plan on returning soon to take more photos. But today, we went there to hike the trails. I still took a few pictures:
