Gingerbread houses

I had the neighbor kids over for a bit of gingerbread house making and decorating last week.

Im not sure what I was thinking...taking that on!

I am still finding little silver balls on the floor...

But they turned out really cute and the boys worked off the sugar high on the trampoline!

Christmas tree hunt 2012

It was a miserable Saturday...but the next day was going to be worse and I really, really wanted to get the tree... We went right by that little one but,

with in 1 minute of being at Crest Christmas tree ranch I found the perfect tree.

And it is a good thing, because just as we were paying for the tree it started to pour!

Loren tried to talk me out of it and we did look at one other tree...

But seriously, this was the prefect tree!

Nice Christmas tree shape with no bare spots.

And no brown needles like some of the other trees...tho in the rain that was hard to figure out!

The boys loved the tree carrier and it kept the tree from getting muddy...thought, Jack kept jumping on it to get a ride.

In the parking lot...what are the odds of 2 of the exact same 1997(i think that is the year) red dodge van parked next to each other.

Now I need to post a picture of the worlds most perfect tree...decorated!

Monterey Bay

We seriously live in an awesome place!

One hour at the most to the monterey bay aquarium and the tide pools!
It is a long hour when you are in the car with the fontinell brothers...
Truth be told, we live 10 minutes from the tide pools in SC, but there is much more on 17 mile drive!

We had lunch by the ocean...and climbed some rocks.

It was a great day to hang out with the family!

And Luke only got a little wet!

Im almost back

I had this really long training last week that continues to make me think that I should just be a stay at home mom...because working and mommying is too hard!
I say it every year, but maybe this is the one that put me over the edge!

I will be back with more blogging next week as I adjust!

And bring on all the Fall 2013 applicants...I am ready! (well, not really ready, but if I keep saying it, it will come true, right!!)
