I'm not very good at keeping this updated. The whole Christmas season went by with out one single post. Christmas as always, was busy, and fun. This is a short one, but I have to share this video, makes me smile.

my first phone dump

Our fall day at the park

Monday, November 14, 2011


Yesterday for the first time in 6 1/2 years, I had a whole day to myself. It was my best friend of 20 years(whoa!) birthday. She rented a bus and we all headed to Temecula to go wine tasting. I had never done that before, it was a lot of fun, a BEAUTIFUL day, and a great mini escape.

a quicky today

On Halloween this year we, again went to Trunk or Treat. We went with friends this time, and even ran into cousins and got to slide and bouncy house with Avery!

Well Unless I want to pay for more storage, I guess I need to limit my picture posting. We went to Bates Nut Farm a few times this year, riding ponies, petting farm animals, going through a maze, and going on hay rides. It is fall, and today is the first cold blustery fall day. I had to trade in my flip flops for boots. We even have a tree in our yard turning yellow! We have gardens full of lettuce that are liking the cool weather, and the kids get to ware leggings, cute boots, and comfy jackets to school. And we have survived the first end of the year holiday (is Halloween a holiday?). At the end of the night on Halloween after the kids were in bed we did actually note that we had survived Halloween. Every one had a fun night, it was just a bit crazy with 3 kids going 3 ways all night. It is fall!

summer's still in full swing

Summer's days are numbered. It is getting cooler outside, everyone is back in school, and the calender says we have only 5 days left. We are still squeezing every last bit out. Last weekend we ran around Moon Light Beach, then yesterday we we had fish tacos under dry grass umbrellas, and stayed till the sun set. Sure we were hugging the out door heaters a bit by the end, but it wasn't too cold.

Pics from our favorite thing to do on the Moon Light Beach playground, or any play ground for that matter

of to a good start

We got to go see Rhiannon's class room, meet her teacher, and learn the goals of this first trimester, on Wednesday. Rhiannon's clip just happened to be moved up to "Star Student" on that day. Today she was asked if she did anything exciting over the 3 day weekend, she said "no... I did something exciting today! I went to school!" Her teacher is a new teacher and her enthusiasm matches Rhiannon's. My favorite teachers were always the newer ones. We are so far very happy with her new school, and her teacher. Some how she has no home work till October! The only thing she is working on at home are her sight words. 250 words they want the kids to know "quick as a snap". No sweat, she's got this.
