A little bit of this....

Day 211

Adam got a remote control helicopter for Christmas and the warning printed on the blades gives us hours of entertainment.



In case you can't read it:
"Warning! If blade damage. don't be fly. otherwise it will create the human body or blade damage."

Day 212

Have I mentioned enough times that I could totally get used to winter being warm? Because I could.

We took the scooters and coaster cars out around the neighborhood today and the kids found this little hill that they went down over and over and over and over and over again.

Full of Hot Air

Day 213

Look closely and you will see two hot air balloons in this picture. Do you see them?


Image

We see hot air balloons from our back deck at least once a week. And that is not an exaggeration. I have seen more hot air balloons in the 3 months we have lived in this house then in my entire life beforehand. Crazy, eh?

Jingle Trains

Day 214

We headed out tonight to our favorite train park to experience their Christmas lights.


Image

I was under the crazy impression that it would be less busy after Christmas, and that if we went on a Thursday instead of a Friday or Saturday it wouldn't be crowded.

I was wrong. It was an hour and a half wait to ride the train. (a 5 minute train ride.) When we went to Disneyland for Christmas last year we didn't wait that long for anything! Seriously.

But we left Mike in line and I ran around with the kids and took them in the model train building so it wasn't so bad. Well, for me. Ask Mike how much he liked standing in line.

Here we finally made it on the train. Going through the tunnel reminded me of the crazy psychedelic tunnel on Willie Wonka and the Chocolate Factory.

Creating order from Chaos

Day 215


In my old house I had a pot rack for my pans and lids. So I've had to figure out a different want to store my pans in this new house, and so far nothing was working. So a few weeks ago I bought a few of these and spent an hour today doing this.

Order

There is still a LOT more organizing to do. But it's a start.

Ring in the New Year in style

Day 216

We are such party animals at our house. I spent my New Year's Eve folding laundry.



And we went to bed before midnight. See, I told you we were party animals!

Day 217

If you've been reading my blog for awhile you'll know that this post is WAY past due. I'm very behind. So when I sat down to try and catch up I was going through the pictures on my phone and this was the only picture I took on January 1st.

And I'm sure it had a story, something witty or thoughtful I was going to write about to go with it....but I honestly don't remember. Guess I shouldn't get so far behind again, eh?

"don't be fly"? is that an insult or reprimand?

I'm jealous of the pan organization!

Well, it looks like you are having fun in the sun. Not to worry though, we are too...I wish we had snow though...
And I think you should just get fake plants. Really, that's what I have to do. ;) I have a plant in my kitchen window right now that won't die...maybe because I hardly ever water it? I don't know. I only like plants that don't need much watering, because I never do that.
I like that willy wonka psychedelic thing and the bird bath is beautiful. Love the pan organization...go Woman!
