Merry Christmas!!

Alright, I confess that my apartment has been decorated with Christmas stuff for simply weeks already, but we haven't yet added and decorated our Christmas tree. We like to get a live tree, so we wait until about 3 weeks before Christmas to get that. I guess I don't have anything against other people having a fake tree, I get a fresh tree only because it's one of those things that my family always did... and I like it. Besides, what is Christmas if not vacuuming up pine needles everyday!

If you are struggling to get into the Spirit of Christmas, I will tell you what you should do. You go to Starbucks, get yourself a nice venti hot cocoa. Then mosie on over to the Crate and Barrel at Victoria Gardens. It's my favorite Christmas store mostly because of all the baking things they have and the ornaments that they come out with every year. Just buy a few ornaments and with the combination of the cocoa in your tummy and the crisp, plastic, credit card in your hand, you will recapture what Christmas is all about!

If for any reason you have buyer's remorse, just go home and watch "It's a wonderful Life" gosh that's the greatest movie!

I was tagged!

Katie tagged me. I don't know exactly what that is, but she said that this tag ment that I had to go into my file of pictures and pick the 4th picture in the 4th file I have. This is that picture. I don't really remember what was going on. It was taken in September of 2007. All I can say is that it makes me so baby hungry! Look at how chubba chubba my baby Cade was!

A Home Alone Halloween

Greetings! I know that all of you are dying to know what Caiden was for Halloween! He was a Nascar Race Driver! Isn't he cute? In Redlands there is a festival in Old Town Redlands on State Street. It's one of those cute places that you see in movies where the trees are so big and tall that they canopy over the streets. There are cute Delis and Stationary stores- great for window shopping. They keep twinkle lights on the tress year around and hold a farmers market every Thursday night where you can buy fresh fruits, vegetables and all kinds of stuff! The City gives candy to all of the little shops at this time of year, so that they can hand it out to the trick-or-treaters. My good friend Katie and I took our kids this year. It was really nice because they get everything started at 3 in the afternoon, so we didn't have to take our toddlers out at night time. The array of costumes was fabulos! We had a lot of fun, and Caiden has enough candy to last him till Halloween of next year! Katie's twins, Madylin and Morgan, were M&M's...cute huh?
