Sunday Harvest from Nana's trees.


Desi got us free tickets to The Harlem Globetrotters. Not only were they free, but they were awesome seats! We were only 12 rows up from the floor. I have never seen my kids laugh so hard! These guys are really hilarious! Thank You Aunt Desi!
Ava continually amazes us with her femininity. She insisted on bringing a purse with a lip gloss and "camera" ( a toy that looks like a camera) She would take her camera out, take a picture, look at the picture and then put it back in her purse. The take out her lip gloss and apply and then put it back, she clapped and cheered and booed. It was like hanging out with a 30 year old. The boys loved being there and although Ethan tried to keep a cool, straight face he ended up cracking up the whole time. It was a great night.


I had the pleasure of joining Owen's class on their field trip the Long Beach Aquarium. It was a beautiful day and quite an adventure. My dear friend Shanon drove us and 6 kids. We may or may not have passed up our exit and ended up in Compton, but we did end up making it there safely. Anyone who know me knows that I am not a big fan of birds, no one sent the memo to the birds in Long Beach. While there I was pooped on, sat in poop, while pointing I touched a pigeon mid flight, and in the lorakeet exhibit I was the only one a bird landed on and I didn't even have food. Other then those horrifying events, I must say it was a blast. I don't get to hang out with just Owen very often so it was good bonding time.

Devin and the kids had Monday off from work and school so we took off Saturday night and escaped to my Grandma and Grandpa's house in Pahrump Nevada. It was so much fun and so relaxing. There is nothing like escaping from the world and being taken care of by your grandma. Thank you Grandma and Grandpa for having us. I hope you and your house will recover from our craziness!!!

Don't let these faces fool you. Today has been sad, very sad. Whitney moved to Utah. I cannot write down how much I'll miss her and Emma. I hope they move back here soon.


Whitney and Emma's goodbye dinner :(

O.k O.k. I know i've missed 2 days of blogging. In my defense, I have been taking pictures, but they are on my phone and for some reason I can not e-mail them to myself. My camera was dead in my car, but now it's charged and ready to go. So expect pictures tonight!

Owen making friends with Evelyn the gorilla
On the feet saving tram
The boys had another day off of school. That's right, a FOUR day weekend! So Whitney and I took all the kids to the Los Angeles Zoo. It was a nice, quiet day there. Not to many people. It was a fun way to end a long weekend.


I took advantage of the kids day off and got their pictures taken on Valentine's day and they came out so cute!

This is my sister. She is also my best friend. She is moving. Far away. I'm going to miss her. A lot. The end.


Devin's parents gave us passes to Knott's Berry Farm for Christmas. We finally went and it was great. It was so great my cheeks hurt from smiling. Sassy has never really liked any of the rides at Disneyland. She shakes the whole time we are in line and whimpers through the whole ride, every ride. It doesn't matter that she has the ride memorized, she was still terrified. So I didn't have high hopes for knotts. So imagine my surprise when she screamed and laughed on every ride she went on. The rides in Camp Snoopy are great because they are mostly for kids only. So Devin and I got to sit back and watch the kids have fun. And the park was soooo empty they got to ride every ride as many times as they wanted. I almost had a heart attack when Devin put all the kids (including Sass) on the small roller coaster. I mean seriously I couldn't feel my left arm I was so freaked out. But they loved it and I eventually got my blood pressure down to a normal level and got the feeling back in my arm! So all in all we had a blast and can't wait to go back.

I decided to paint my piano. It was really nerve racking because I wnted it perfect.
I taped up all the keys and sanded it.
This is the first coat

And the almost finished product. I say almost because I still need to seal it. I'll probably do that tomorrow. I LOVE the way it turned out!

We went to a birthday party for a friend of Owen's tonight at Chuck E. Cheese's. It was so fun. Ava ran smack into a table while we were there and got a big blue goose egg on her head. I tried to take a picture of it, but you can't see it. I guess it's fading quick and will be gone by tomorrow.
