No Santa For Us!

We tried to go see Santa, but my kids hate Santa!  Well they don't hate Santa but they want nothing to do with him if seen in person.  No sitting on his lap no talking to him simply just get them out of there!  Ah the good holiday fun!

R holding onto Daddy as tight as possible

So instead we played in the leaves, ate candy canes and cookies then sipped on some apple cider.  I really hope one day my kids will love Santa I just want a cute picture of my kids with Santa, is that to much to ask?  Shot it doesn't even have to be cute but at least one with them at least looking happy to be there!

Zoo Day

Last week we went to the zoo with a few friends, it was a perfect day.  There may not be a better way to spend the day this time of year.  The weather is cool but the sun is out which means we were all comfortable and not feeling so hot we just want to sit in the shade and the animals seemed to like it too! 

Our little animals!

I couldn't look at this snow leopard without thinking about Kung Fu Panda!
That is just how my mind works now!

Some of the kids got to feed the giraffe.
Regan did not want to she stayed safely behind the fence and watched!

Then the kids each took the chance to make Ayla laugh.
This really means the took turns shaking their booties in her face!
But she seemed to think it was funny!!

So happy to spend a day with friends!

We Love Halloween!

We love Halloween so much that R could not sleep the night before!  We had to go in her room a couple of times to tell her she needed to go to sleep and every time we opened the door we were greeted with, "I am so exciting!" She is four and we probably should correct her but exciting is really the only word she uses incorrectly and we just think it is so darn cute.  And really how exciting is it to go trick or treating with your best friend!

I started Halloween with my second half marathon!  I really can't believe I have run two now!  Who do I think I am?  I ran with my friend Nicole so about an hour after we started running Nicole's family picked up David and the kids and they all headed over to the finish line to cheer us on.  It was great to be able to run and have my family at the end!

In the Beginning of July we got to go play in Tahoe with both of my sisters and their families.  It was lots of fun but also very busy plus David could only stay one night so having two girls to myself and funny schedules and not sleeping in their own beds made for a few battles with Regan.  But it is not very often that we can get all the kids together so it is worth it!

We played at the beach which was covered in ladybugs!  I don't mean we saw some ladybugs I mean there was one on you at all times!  The kids loved it and caught many!

We also got to relax a little while the kids ran wild on the roof of the hotel, we found a letterbox, and enjoyed some pool time.  The kids were beat and so was I for about two days after getting home!

It was great seeing you and your families my sistas!  Wish we lived closer to one another!

Oh I almost forgot my favorite photo.  My favorite photo because I'm sure if I dug deep enough into the old family albums we have this picture of me and my sisters and brother when we were little hanging out in the spa tub in our room.  I don't know why but wearing your swim suit in a giant tub in the middle of a hotel room was so much fun!

Polite Pete the Pirate

Regan loves loves loves Pirates more specifically Polite Peet the Pirate by Hullabaloo!

Well they call me Polite Peet the Pirate
I sail the seven salty seas
I rob and I loot
I pillage and I plunder
But I always say thank you and please!

Sometimes Daddy plays along too! :)

A few weeks ago we had a playdate with the Jones's.  The kids made their own pizzas and played and played and played.  Turns out going to their house makes for a very easy day for me.  The best thing about Regan's buddies is their mom is one of my buddies from high school!  So I a also got to eat pizza and play too! :)


Things I've Learned From Regan

  • The altitude is in the mountains
  • Nothing is as fun as water!
  • ...David is HER daddy.
