Cute pix from this past week

It has rained a lot the last few weeks in SB.
So we've been doing lots of indoor crafts to keep the kiddos busy.

Lazy days just laying around.

Walks in the rain, catching rain drops.

Lots and lots of coloring.

Getting creative with boxes and stuff around the house. This box was a firetruck.

Chris and I spent the weekend at the Ojai Valley Inn Resort and Spa, compliments of NHR. While the Fallon's stepped in to take the little guy for the weekend. Thank you, thank you!!
The sun came out for the whole weekend and it was amazing!
Here are some pix I stole from their website as I was lame and didn't take any pictures. I guess when Connor's not around we forget to use the camera.

This morning Connor cuddled up to me on the couch and wrapped his arms around mine and then looked up at me with a big smile. It just melted my heart. Now think of all of those parents who have lost their babies to SMA and never had the chance to experience that. Please vote to help cure SMA.

70 degrees and sunny in January

What a great weekend! The weather has been so nice here in SB. While the rest of the country is freezing we were hanging at the pool with Connor and friends. We feel so lucky to live here.

Connor had lots of fun playing baseball with Daddy.

What great start to 2010!

Double the trouble and double the fun.

We took Connor and Samantha to OstrichLand in Buellton to feed the ostriches and emus. These big birds are a rare and unique sight in this part of the world and it was really fun to see them. They are very strange and beautiful birds. Connor and Sam were so good in the car and both loved singing along to Mary had a little lamb.

Sam may look scared in this picture but she was not at all. She kept putting her hand right in the food bowl and these guys are aggressive eaters, but she did not care.
She loved the big crazy birds.

Connor loved the Ostriches too. He kept yelling "HI OSTRICHES"! and trying to pet them but they move way to fast.

These 2 raced back and forth about a million times and had the best time.

Then we went to Solvang and visited the cutest little mini horses at the Quicksilver Ranch. Connor and Samantha had such a great time together, it made Chris and I so happy to see the two of them really enjoying themselves.

Samantha tricked these 3 into thinking she had food for them
because she kept filling her empty snack bowl with rocks.

Big Hugs.

one, two, three, JUMP!

After nap we went to Sarah and Reese's for a playdate and belated xmas gift exchange.
The kids had a great time opening presents and eating lollipops.
While us mommies said a sad good by for now to Miss Sarah and little Reese who are leaving us for the entire month of January :-( boooo hoooo We will miss you girls.

New Years 2009

This new years eve was spent at home with a few special friends. We had a great time but we did miss the ball dropping and if you can believe it forgot to do a champagne toast.

Connor attacking Samantha on the couch after enjoying many many sugary treats.

Gwendolyn showing off her pretty purple nail polish. She is one hip little lady.

Bill and Victoria joined us for our east coast style new years.

Connor, Gwendolyn and Samantha.

A few moments of calmness. Unfortunately Chris and I were lame and didn't get many pictures of the night. We were happy to have Ronda and Todd also ring in the new year with us. Well there's always next year.
