Christmas & New Years…

9 Jan

What a fun first Christmas we had as a family! We had a blast watching Penny “open” gifts and so many people got her a ton of great things!!

First off, we got a special visit from Santa before Christmas came – that was fun!

As soon as Santa sat down Raelynne was on his lap ready to talk!

Addi was quite unsure and Penny was too into her toys…

Ryan showed Santa his toy and told him what he wanted for Christmas

Penny gave him a once over and pulled his beard then got a present! Thank you Santa!!

Poor Addi, we are hoping Penny won’t feel the same way next year…

I tell ya, this girl loves to swing!

Ah, Christmas morning, the old family shot. I think I took about 5 and this ones the best out of the bunch…

Investigating/eating her first gift…

Then grandma and grandpa showed up to join in on the fun…

Penny loves to read stories with grandma…

Then off to the LeSage’s for more Christmas fun…

Learning to share…

Ray, are you having fun?

Grandma Carolee got this bear for Penny and she freakin loves it! Even today she was hugging it and squealing with joy!

My dad was having fun with the girls..

Happy Birthday to little OLD me!

During the week we had a visit from Uncle Josh and Aunt Nicole. Penny is checking out one of the outfits they got her…

On New Years Eve we left the kids with the grandparents and hit the town! We went to a great restaurant in Riverside called The Salted Pig.

Kelly takes amazing pictures after two drinks…

Looking forward to what 2012 has to offer!!

Thanksgiving….

10 Dec

This year we went camping with the “Leeds” side of the family. We made the 3+ hour drive out to Refugio…

When we got there the “Martha’s” had delicious coffee and dessert for us!

Besides the fact that we all got sick on the second day – Penny had a great time. She loves to people watch, and of course spending time with grandma and grandpa…

Thanksgiving day the girls had a great idea to move all the camp tables out into the valley with a view of the beach…

Miss “stands up all the time” hanging out with daddy..

Grandma Lee is ready for Thanksgiving!

Our big group, praying before we eat…

It was a great Thanksgiving, see you in 2 years campers!

Halloween..

30 Oct

Hope everybody has a great Halloween!!!

Penny Visits Utah…

22 Jun

We made the long haul to Utah during Roberts vacation. We were both a little worried that Penelope might not do well on the drive, but she was a champ both ways! I was so proud of her. We had a fun time with my mom and family. It was nice for Robert to see were her and my dad will be living (my dad finally retires at the end of the month!!!!!).

It was so freakin windy!

Miss wiggle worm was happy to be out of her car seat…

Hanging out downtown sharing a root beer float. The only thing that would have made it better was if it were in a glass instead of a cheesy paper cup…

Meeting Aunt Rayleen and Uncle Randy..

Penny went into her first antique store. She was not impressed..

Still dealing with the wind…

We went exploring the back country and tried to spot the deer. None to be found, my dad said it was probably too hot..

Then on another day we went up to Cedar Breaks with Aunt Rayleen and Uncle Randy…

We couldn’t believe all the snow that was still up there..

I wrote my name in the snow, and on the way out someone had rubbed it out with there hand. How rude!

Headed home. Until next time Utah!

This And That…

29 Apr

Is this how you use your boppy??

We started using the Bjorn, which is awesome! yesterday I go to swiff the house. Highlight of my day…

And Rob enjoys cooking/eating with it on…

We started watching Sons Of Anarchy a couple of weeks ago ( Season 3 – hurry up and come out!) Penny has taken to riding her hog in her sleep…

Easter was great…

thanks to Aunt Kelly and her books, Penny had a wonderful time…

Some cousin love…

So we’ve just been using a paper bag as a trash can cuz well, we’re lazy. But the other day Bella decided that she now has a taste for dirty diapers and got to work. A trash can has now been added to the Target list…

Christmas/New Years 2010…

9 Jan

So for my birthday I got a new point and shoot camera which I was soo excited about. I decided to bring it to Christmas rather than haul my big one around. It was kinda frustrating just still trying to figure out what settings I would be happy with and dealing with the flash that seemed too bright, but obvioulsy when I had the flash off I would get the blurry images. So unlike years prior I didnt shoot a whole lot…

So here we are Christmas Eve, I had to beg Rob to come take a picture with me by the tree. As you can see, he’s already half undressed…

While Rob was at work I started off the day with my side of the family…

With help from my mom and shal – I made this doll for Addi…

twin cousins!

I thought it was pretty funny that I could hit my moms boob with my belly. TMI??

Later that day it was off to Rob’s side…

“Santa”

Rob tried to take a picture with Addi but clearly she was over it…

The dice game! I scored some hair towel wraps and I’ve been using them ever since…

the day after Christmas Bella was lounging in the sun enjoying her new chew toy! We got a bunch of cool things and so many things for the baby too, it was awesome!

New Years weekend Rob had to work so it was pretty low key for us…

We watched the ball drop at 9:00 (east coast style) and then hit the hay. Party animals I tell ya!

Happy Thanksgiving…

5 Jan

Let’s back this train up a bit cuz i got some catchin up to do!

We had Thanksgiving in San Marcos at Rob’s Aunt and Uncle’s house. Janet always does a wonderful job hosting Thanksgiving and we all pray that she will never give it up because no one else wants to have 20 million people in their house for 4 days. hhmmm, maybe Rob and I should just stay in an apartment forever…

So here’s Thanksgiving 2010…

We celebrated Carolee’s birthday

Kelly’s work of art…

The Brown Family took all the winnings in Left Right Center…

Not sure what Robert said to make Ryan sock him….

Then some of the girls snuggled up to some good trivia fun…

While the guys mocked us on the side. I’m sure Matt wanted to join in tho…

Then we lounged around the next day…

this seemed to be the on-going pattern…

a possible promo shot for Sweet Tooth Confections??

Addi, showing off her skills…

So that’s that for our Thanksgiving. Let me see if I can get it together and put some more posts up before this month passes me by!
