Not Santa, Mommy!!

We love visiting the Huish's every year for their extravagant Christmas lights and decorations and this past weekend Brad's Grandparents were playing Santa and Mrs. Clause. Here'a a few pics from that night. Avery was not fond of Santa and even though it was Great Grandpa, she wanted nothing to do with him. Maybe next year she'll like Santa a little more and maybe even smile for the camera.  

Winner Winner... We Have A Winner!!

It's Beginning to feel a lot like Christmas!

Our Thanksgiving was wonderful and we loved spending time with family. My family celebrated Thanksgiving the Sunday before and we celebrated with Brad's family Thanksgiving Day. I had only taken two pictures that day and one is of Avery and a cute little puppy and the other is of the delicious Peanut Butter Pie that I made. It was a hit and I plan on making it every Thanksgiving.

We're excited for Christmas and all that goes with it. Today we're off to find outfits for our family Christmas pictures we're taking next week, wish us luck!!

Monday is going to be a fabulous day, why you might ask because I will be hosting my first giveaway... So stay tuned!!

Have a wonderful weekend and do something wonderful for yourself!

Word Wednesday

I know I usually do wordless Wednesdays, but today I feel like this. My Class ends this Saturday and lets just say I have a few papers to write and a final to study for. 

I wish I could say I feel and look like this, but unfortunately I don't. Maybe towards the end of my next class I will.

The Countdown Begins

I LOVE Christmas!! Everything about it, I love!! Christmas music is a must for me and when I was driving in my car and heard on FM 96.5 that Christmas music would be played from 7pm-12 am, I got even more excited!!

What is my count down you ask?

My countdown is 12 days until Black Friday!! Special thanks to Grandma Cordy because it is this wonderful women who introduced me to this wonderful/crazy shopping day. Waking up early and finding those good finds is what it's all about! Although Grandma Cordy is no longer with us, you better believe that I will carry on this tradition in honor of her! Plus, it's a day that I can feel close to her because she loved Black Friday and all that went along with it. So yes my friends 12 days until I wake up at 4am and begin shopping on one of the craziest days of the year.

Just to get you a little more excited for Christmas, please enjoy the video below!!

5 Kids 4 Adults... That's how we roll to Disneyland!!

Our trip to Disneyland two weeks ago was a success. My parents, two nieces and nephew joined Brad, Avery, my niece Desea and I. It was a lot of fun and Avery loved it! A special shout out and thanks to Grandpa Norris for hooking us up with a room at the Fairfield Inn Marriott it is located right across the street from the Disneyland entrance, so it was an easy walk. Plus, the hotel upgraded us to the Mickey Mouse Suite, they treated us great!! I love Disneyland and I especially love going during Holidays. I'm pretty sure I'm going to convince Brad to take another trip there before Christmas, Christmas time at Disneyland is my favorite!! I took lots of pictures, so enjoy the collages!

It's beginning to feel a lot like Fall

Every year, sometimes twice a year my parents like to make a trip up to Julian. I'm not going to lie, I love joining them! This last weekend my parents, Avery and I, and my sister Stevie and her two Boys Reef and Hawk made the trip. One thing I look forward to most is a slice of warm apple pie. This year they had a pumpkin apple pie and if you know me I'm a BIGG pumpkin pie fan!!It was delicious!! It was fun to get away for a few hours and especially spend time with my parents and sister. It was beautiful there. We of course stopped at the Cider Mill to purchase our yummy treats and my mom and I bought the baby apples to make yummy caramel apples, they're the perfect size for that. I hope to be able to make another trip up there before the end of the year and hopefully Brad will join.

Avery and Daddy

Avery hasn't really been into books, but lately all she wants to do is have mommy and daddy read to her. Last night it was the cutest thing when Brad was reading her the book, I Love You, Stinky Face. Every time he'd read about the dinosaur she'd go "rooarr". This picture captures it perfectly. Nothing melts my heart more then seeing Avery and her daddy spend time together. She has the best dad ever and he's soo good to her. I'm so grateful  that I was blessed with such a wonderful husband. I must admit, I'm a little bit sad that Avery's been more into her Daddy lately, but then again I love seeing the two of them together!!

My Cute Niece

My niece Desea had her Primary Program at church today and I got to go. My sister is in the hospital from a procedure, so my niece got to stay with us for a couple days. My mom and I took her shopping yesterday for a new dress and shoes. These pictures were after her program and as you can tell she's a crazy little girl, but we love her. She did such a good job and we're so proud of her!
