Beard And Boots

I walked in late to a meeting at the Hilton Garden in Phoenix and saw Mike. I looked at him and blurted out "Woe Beard" he looked at me and said "Wow Boots"

I'm So Lucky (Even If I'm Off)

The Worst Television Episode Ever

"We're having a royal sleepover, a royal sleepover"-repeat 500 times during this episode of Sofia the First. Today at Target I saw this you which is all about that one episode. I immediately texted James saying it was a toy I absolutely refused to buy. The girls must have watched this episode 50 times during our trip (in the motor home) last summer.

Birthday Tree Is Up

We put Brooke's birthday tree up tonight. She was super excited ;)

Fiercely loyal
I'm on the priority list even 5 days before Christmas 
You've helped me on the path to healthy
You make me smile
You make me laugh

I love you for everything you have been, everything you are and everything you will be. Happy Birthday!

Monday Night

What an awful week! This picture taken in the Santa Barbara Starbucks Monday night seems like two weeks ago. PS. I love my new Disneyland sweatshirt and the hat from Nova Scotia is my favorite!

Goodnight Sydney!

Cyndi made Sydney this blanket, today I told Cyndi that the girls fight over it all the time. Sure enough when I got home tonight Sydney was snuggling under it. Glad I got home while they were still awake.

All Is Well (This Was From Yesterday$

Happy Birthday, Becca!

I can't believe you are going to be 40 in three short years! (LOL) 

I'm not sure if you know this or not but when people as me about you I say that Becca was my first friend. I will then follow with how lucky I am to have you. You are a rock to me, a best friend and I love raising our kids together. I am so grateful for simply will never know how much you mean to me. I love you! Happy Birthday!

"We're Just Playing People!"

The other day Brooke and Sydney were playing with their Disney Characters, something they have done a lot but as they get older are doing less often. My favorite is when they each have the same character and one of the Ariel's will be the mom and the other daughter. This always end with the daughter calling the mom and then I which they respond exasperated "Mom, we're just playing people!".

So back to the other day after Brooke exclaimed they were playing people she walked in the kitchen carrying her castle and I couldn't resist capturing this memory.

Today I Was In The Jungle Baby!

My 40th Birthday

For my 40th birthday we rented a hummer limo and went off on an adventure. First stop was Avolio's for dinner, after dinner we headed to the Americana, next was Starbucks, looking at Christmas lights and back to my mom's for desert. We had a great time and now that I have all the pictures I'm ready to post about it. I do realize that this post is 20 days late.
