Christmas Tree Hunting

It was a beautiful day to go tree hunting..and by the amount of cars at the parking lot, everyone agreed.
We had to park on the side of the road!

Lots and lots of trees to choose from!


Luke was very excited about the hot chocolate!

And about helping Daddy cut down the tree.

Off to buy our tree

and wait in line to buy our tree

It would have been a shorter line if this tree was not in front of us.
This giant tree took at least 10 minutes to get processed in the the net machine because it was soooo big!

Old stuff

This summer flew by!
We did have one week of a stay cation and it was pretty fun.

We live right next to  Roaring Camp Railroads and really have not ridden the train very much.
It is pretty expensive, but on a staycation you splurge.

We took the boardwalk train and it was super fun!

It is a great way to get to the boardwalk with out all of the hastle of parking.
We really wish that they offered a season pass, because we would be all over that!

It is beautiful.

You can tell that this is in the summer because Luke has a crazy buzz cut...which he want now too.

Meet the newest Fontinell!

I hope everyone had a very fun Thanksgiving!
I sure did...which is why I did have time to take any pix.
All day cooking and then all night eating!

Anyway, I would like to introduce the newest memeber of the family!
Timmy L Fontinell

We got him a week ago and he has just fit in amazingly!

And the boys are over joyed....they really need a dog as Luke likes to wrestle with him...and carry him around the house.  He has put up with it very well.  Luke only has a few scratches!

Murphys park


Seriously, the little town of Murphys, CA has the cutest park.

And with the 75 degree weather we had ths weekend it was fun to go out and play. 

This park has a fabulous play structure, and it is were Jack learned to swing all by his self...
but now they are too big for playgrounds and headed to the river.

In the summer they go in the river, but this trip was for leaf/stick floating.
They could spend hours doing it!

Heather house walk

We are up at Uncle Bill and Auntie Kate's house for the long weekend.
It is beautiful!!

Sadly, Luke is not feeling so we can not be far from a potty...
Poor kid!

We went on a walk in the morning

Jack was not so happy about going on a walk.

He reminded me of my childhood when my dad would take me on hikes...and I hated it.

but then I like it.
Luke didn't get to walk with us because his belly is under the weather,
but Jack got stuck walking with me and he found deer antlers.
So totally cool!

And pine cones...I might have been the most excited about pine cones...

But Jack found deer antlers!
