Chris, Daisy and I woke Tabi up singing “Go Tabi! It’s your birthday!” while doing the Cabbage Patch and scared the Bejebus out of her. The funny thing is, she ordered us to wake her that way.
She opened her presents which were, an ipod classic (she preferred that over a touch), her own controller […]

Birthday Eve.

Saturday, January 29th, 2011

Today is the last day my first baby is 11. We went to Disneyland, though it has nothing to do with her birthday. Rather, we wanted to do the character fan weekend but didn’t want it to cut into her birthday celebration tomorrow. We were there about 3 hours and then headed to my in-laws’ […]

Today was Kickin’ Country Weekend, or some such nonsense name. It was the weekend two of the Family Fun Weekends at Disneyland and the theme was country music. Good grief was this a hard one to sit through. But it was worth it, we saw lots of great characters in country outfits. Aside from everyone […]

We survived!

Another birthday party for Miss Tabitha. The kids keep getting bigger, but my house sure doesn’t! Last year I said not in the house again, but we didn’t do any real planning to not have it here, so this was our only choice. I think next year though, we really are going to look outside […]

atmospheric conditions

Wednesday, January 19th, 2011

It never fails, whenever there’s something cool going on up in the heavens, we get clouds. Sure enough, tonight is a full moon and the girls were supposed to study it with binoculars. Last night and all throughout today, it was the most crystal clear, cloudless sky. The minute the moon rises- clouds. Hopefully it […]

Hidden Gems I

Tuesday, January 18th, 2011

Today I decided to add a new category to my blog called Home Tour. I make no promises of how often I’ll post in this category but I know that one thing blog readers love, it’s a peek inside someone’s home. I’m not up for a full tour of the house right now, so I’m […]

Take that, Winter!

Monday, January 17th, 2011

It was so beautiful today I could not imagine spending the whole day inside. While my two sleeping beauties were taking advantage of the rare day I let them sleep in (that sounds wrong. If Tabitha sleeps even a half hour past normal, she has a ton of trouble going to sleep at night. Daisy […]

Disneyland is doing Family fun Weekends for the next 8 weeks. This weekend was the first one and the theme was fiesta. We went for the characters dressed in different outfits.

There were also performances by the Mariachi Divas and folklorico dancers as well as items for sale based on Mexican art/traditions. We had a pretty […]

Sometimes I don’t blog because I can’t think of a title

Saturday, January 15th, 2011

We’ve had a fairly uneventful few days. Chris was sick, unfortunately, but is recovering enough to go out. Today we didn’t have Tabitha as she had a GS cookie event. Time for all that again. Of course she likes the 750 prize but that was a heck of a lot of work last year and […]

A post for Mama Anc

Thursday, January 13th, 2011

I’ve been informed I haven’t blogged since the 8th
Sunday we did end up bundling up and going to Disneyland. It was the day of break downs. Space Mountain, Matterhorn, and Pirates were all down at the times we wanted to ride. But we still did lots of fun things and met up with […]

When it finally warms up, what will I blog about?

Saturday, January 8th, 2011

The high today is 58. The temperature should never drop below the speed limit.
Tabitha had a Girl Scout overnight event last night. The rest of us went to a food truck fest that we found out about last minute. Very, very cold, but there were gas heaters set up near tables (I’ve never seen tables […]

hot car, cold studio

Thursday, January 6th, 2011

Seriously, it’s amazing how cold this dance studio is. Sadly, my car was very, very hot the other day because apparently I have a cracked radiator. It’s at the mechanic’s and should be ready tonight but we didn’t need that on top of the washing machine breaking, the DirecTV box breaking and the first new […]

no work, no school

Monday, January 3rd, 2011

But free time is over as it is back to lessons, dance, Park Day, and Girl Scouts this week. No book club yet, at least, but everything else is back in full force!
Lessons went well today, for the most part. The big one grumbled about math and the little one grumbled about printing, so all […]
