Becca's Dessert

Last month Becca decided to make a new recipe she found off Pinterest. It was an Apple dish and Becca declared that she just wanted to try it out as she had an abundance of Apples that needed to be used and figured she would test it out. When she asked mom her opinion the following conversation ensued:

Becca: How is it?
Mom: It's OK.
Kim: Just OK?
Mom: I mean it's not that bad
Becca: It's getting better
Kim: Yep, mom's compliments
Mom: Oh come on, I just mean I would make something better
Kim: Nice
Mom: No, really. It's fine

The Atmospheric River describes this storm as an Atmospheric River. I'm not sure exactly what that is other than a ton of rain but I certainly wouldn't want to be in Redding doing network cut overs in Mount Shasta during the middle of the night every day this week. Be safe!

First Christmas Project Of The Year

Well last night we made cookies but tonight we did our first real Christmas project. The girls loved this and were very proud of their work. Once again doing foot artwork I realize what an awful arch Sydney has on her left foot. Arch or no arch these are really cute!

The Big Skinny

On Halloween 2010 Sheila gave me a new wallet and I absolutely loved it! More than 2 years later I bought it's replacement mostly due to the fact that I have over stuffed it with I don't need to carry around.  This is seriously the best wallet ever!

Oops We Did It Again

This shopping spree at the Disney Store is turning into one of my most favorite traditions. This time nobody was allowed into the mall until 11:00 and our shopping time at the Disney store was at 10:30. I went in through the back security entrance (where we have exited before on Thanksgiving night) and convinced the security guard we needed to be let in early. So while everyone else waited outside the mall in a terribly long line we were shopping in the Disney store. Loved the addition of Rachel to this night and I gotta say the deals we got were insane! We figure everything was about 70% off for us :)

The Fat Cow

We went to the Fat Cow at the Grove on Friday night and I was very disappointed. Note my plate of fries with a side of steak and mom's plate of fries with a side of two really small pieces of fish. What a joke!

Santa (Check)

Fun Evening At The Grove

We went down to the Grove tonight for dinner and to hang out. It was really pretty and they are fully decked out for Christmas (Including Santa). Check out the pics of the girls enjoying the falling snow. (It snows nightly at 7:00 and 9:00). I'm sure we will be back before the end of the season.

I am not musically inclined, walking out of the Hollywood Bowl a few weeks ago I saw this sign that says Staccato and I turned to David and said (in an excited voice) "Staccato! I learned about that on the Little Einsteins".

Chris Matthews Needs To Be Fired

Chris Matthews: "I'm So Glad We Had That Storm Last Week". See the rest of his comments at RealClearPolitics

I'm sure the mother who lost her 2 year old and 4 year old appreciates this and I'm sure those who have had their homes looted are glad, and I am sure the families of the 108 other people that died are thrilled that Sandy hit the US. How about the businesses that will be closed for weeks? How does this guy get away with this crap? MSNBC needs to fire this jackass.

As Seen At Target

Hi Rachel!

Here's To Spending More Time Together!

Tonight we began our efforts to get the cousins together more routinely. Kim and I have been talking about getting together for awhile and last month we decided that we were just going to make it happen. The goal is twice monthly, tonight we had all the kids present and it was great! Unfortunately, I didn't get any pictures of mom with the kids but I did capture the following:

*Kiersten's first time eating spaghetti *Micah making Christmas music (pushing the buttons) *Sydney and Liz performing *Liz's first Barbie *Swimming in the jacuzzi *Fireside chat  *The 2&3 year olds *Nathan and Brooke post swim *Micah and Kim
