Irvine Park

We've been loving Irvine park lately. So much to do there! Audrey loves to pack a lunch for herself and Liv.

Liv was psycho in line. She screamed, "my turn!!!!" like a maniac the entire time she waited.

Disney's Princesses on Ice

This was our first Disney on Ice experience and we really liked it. The show was very cute and so was the company! I'm excited to do it again when the next one comes around.

5yrs Old!

Happy Birthday to my best little buddy! She makes our lives sparkly and delicious! Audrey LOVES to bake and cook in the kitchen, build clubhouses/homes, and create parties... ALL DAY LONG. Liv is her number one customer and guest. Audrey is an amazing big sister! Liv and I would be lost without her. We love you SO much Audrey!

We went to the Aquarium over Christmas break. 

 Audrey had to bring her "field journal" and take notes in picture form, once she realized having me spell everything letter by letter wasn't gonna last too long.

 Audrey was in heaven with the birds. 

 Liv just LOVED the "big dolphin", bless her heart. I'll have to talk a little more about whales with her.

Christmas 2013

My family came over before the girls woke up, so they could watch the girls wake up to their presents. We had a yummy breakfast and opened presents. Livy kept saying, "ooo, wow, thank you!!!" bless her heart. She's the most grateful lil gal I've ever met.

 Matt proposed to Rachel, a surprise to all. Rachel was very emotional and said 'yes'. Matt had wrapped Rachel's present in several boxes so she wouldn't suspect the small package. We all love Matt, he is such a great person inside, where it counts. So, we're all very excited to have him in our family. 

For dinner we went to Kyle's Aunt Shelley's house, where there is always a lively white elephant gift exchange.
The Grandkids.
The Great-Grandkids
Sad to see Christmas go. We sure enjoyed the season! We have come to an agreement with Audrey

Christmas Eve

We spent Christmas Eve with my family this year. We had dinner and a sugar cookie decorating competition. 

 Liv kept asking for a "sock" cookie (stocking). It was cute.

Christmas Eve, Eve

We are so lucky to live close to both Kyle and I's parents. Grandma Natalie had us over for dinner the Sunday before Christmas to celebrate and sing Happy Birthday to Jesus. The kids were each given a stick horse, which Audrey LOVES. Everyone who came shared a talent and Kellie read the children a special Christmas story. We then sang Happy Birthday to Jesus and enjoyed his Birthday cake. It was a beautiful evening.
