More Christmas fun

Sunday, December 27th, 2009

We have had a great time over the past three days just opening, building, assembling, playing, riding and spending time together.  I do just LOVE this time of year.  It is amazing how much we can cram into each day, just hanging out in our jammies!

We had a crazy, fun-filled, kid-centered day. Unfortunately we didn’t get to see our family in Ventura. They sent the kids some super-fun stuff that we couldn’t wait to say “Thanks!”

Okay, okay…. I know I have fallen wayyyyyy behind with my blogging and this will be a quick and dirty post to getcha updated. (In my defense, my laptop died so Chris had to build a franken-puter to save the picture files and then we had to wait for the new laptop to arrive… and then it takes time to get it all set up, and on and on and on…)So, October was all about:Learning to be a Daisy Girl Scout-Daisy meetingA quick trip to Legoland for Fall Break-sdc10495.JPGsdc10509.JPGWe headed upcountry to a fun-filled pumpkin patch-sdc10551.JPGwith a great petting area:sdc10564.JPGWe finished up the month with a quick weekend trip out to Ventura and begged total strangers for candy….but look at these faces and tell me you could have refused them:sdc10627.JPGTinkerbell and her best friend Captain Hook!
