1/25 - All snuggled in...

A little late getting home from church tonight. Normally she can't fall asleep. She's even snoring!

1/25 - she made her own iPad

I took mine back after she spilled water. So she made her own! I love watching her imagination in action!

1/22 - You can take the girl out of the Bay Area...

But you can't take the Bay Area out of the girl...
So it's not a photo taken today. I was in the car for 7.5 hours. But after the 49ers lost in overtime to the NY Giants, I thought I would make this tribute to my favorite teams.

1/21 - computer ordering at Jack in the Box.

I can even order my tacos with no lettuce! Quick and easy, and no language barrier!

1/18 - Sleeping Cutie

1/18 - multiplying fractions and whole numbers

Oh, my. This is a challenge getting her to follow the steps. When I prompt her through it, it's easy. Left to her own devices, she's all over the place. I'm praying she gets it done before we have to leave for church.

1/15 - Big Sis makes a new friend

While at Penfold's today, Big Sis saw this giant Baloo look-a-like. She wanted to take it home...

1/15 - What I did yesterday (1/14) before tackling the garage

The bed was under the window and the bookshelf was where the headboard is. Now I won't stub my toe on the bed when I'm getting to my desk!

1/13 - Random Pictures for the day...

Little Sis showing off her pretty coloring...

Such a pretty girl, isn't she? Pictures like this prove to me that she is still only 10.

1/12 - I've been tagged...

My friend, Wendy, tagged me in this picture with my friend Heather and her daughter, Christina (in the Kermit hat). Can anyone please tell me what we're laughing at???

1/10 - Watching 3D Sharkboy and Lava Girl


My cousin was visiting and brought her laptop and movies. This was what I found when they were all supposed to be in bed!

1/9 - Google Maps Street View Car

On my drive to Palm Springs to pick up my cousin, I saw the Google Maps car on eastbound I-10. The highlight of my day.

1/8 - (triple treat) Disney Soda Fountain and The Muppets at The El Capitan


Big Sis and her friend enjoying a sundae...

The really cool napkins...

Kermit and Miss Piggy singing Christmas songs...

Sunday January 8 found us in Hollywood at The El Capitan with my Disney friends. It was such a blast. It was my 3rd time seeing The Muppets, but the real treat was seeing Kermit and Miss Piggy before the movie as we sang Christmas songs. I hope I have a chance to go back!

1/7 - Alandra's first ride on California Screamin'

When Alex and I would beg, she would refuse. Her friend Andy asked her, and she agreed. She loved it! She even rode Golden Zephyr and Goofy's Sky School - both which I won't ride! Love my Disney girl!

1/1 - Happy 2012. We are loving the Muppets!

On 12/18 I finally saw The Muppets! I love the movie, so I downloaded the soundtrack. I took Big Sis to see it on 12/20 and she loved it! We've been listening to the soundtrack over and over and now we get to go see it at El Capitan Theater!
Welcome to 2012... it's going to be a great year!
