Playing with guns

Nothing like taking your kids to dinner at friends' house and letting them take turns shooting bottles and cans off a log - at the dinner table, no less! Such a fun night!

Lauren takes aim

Paige is a pro

Owen's a straight shooter:

Guess where?

Polar Express

In a break from tradition this year we did a daytime train ride, with different friends and sans jammies. This was Molly's first time on the Polar Express. The kids enjoyed the hot chocolate and cookies, not to mention getting sleigh bells from Santa!

Answer: Three, but it will still be crooked

Question: How many people does it take to attempt straighten a Christmas tree that is too heavy for it's stand?

Bean bag dance

Getting the crazies out at preschool:

Owen would NOT dance at all last year, but this year he is embracing his inner rhythm and loves to join in.

Sisters by chance

One of Adam's brothers is getting married in a few weeks, so this past weekend I flew down to attend a couple bridal showers. Here's a picture of my future SIL Stacy and my SIL Michelle. So blessed to have these lovely ladies in my life!

Friday night fun

Lauren's Daisy troop participated in their first multi-troop event - decorating and filling Christmas stockings for the needy. The girls teamed up and made some glitter heavy stockings. Can't believe I neglected to get a picture of the finished products!

Santa Cruz Boardwalk

Pictures from our trip a couple weeks back:

High flyers

Thrill seekers

It just so happened to be a high school band playoff of
some sort, the 50th annual. Needless to say, it was packed!

I remember riding these exact same rides when I was little.

Adam loves his new camera. Great picture, right?

Lauren *loved* this ride. I went on it with her in the morning and felt nauseous for at least an hour afterward. She went on it about three more times!

Both the kids love this roller coaster. I was supposed to get pictures of Adam on it with them right before this, but I couldn't figure out how to use his camera!

Robin, my oldest friend, got married yesterday. It was a fabulous, beautiful day, and it went by so fast. I certainly didn't get enough pictures!

Friends since the womb - for 32+ years!

The kiss!

Boy genius

Owen just spelled this on the fridge:

Happy 4th BLOGiversary!

Sorry I've been such a blog slacker lately. Life is incredibly busy, but I'll try harder to post more often. Or at least take my camera out of my purse so I have pictures to post!

This picture was taken at a family brunch a couple weeks ago. 5 out of 8 of us were dressed in black and gray. We had to capture it!
