into the Wii hours of the night.

After the Christmas festivities, Avery & I decided it was time for a road trip.  We headed 3 1/2 hours north to the Farm Capital of California: Corcoran.  We went to visit one of my dearest friends Rochelle and her daughters Bailey & Grace.
Bailey & Avery have inherited their mom's attraction to one another.  It was genetic, i swear.  Even though they are miles apart and see each other only twice a year they shared so many of the same interests: American Girl Dolls, icarly, Pillow Pets, wrestling, and practicing the splits... it was heaven to watch the 2 of them enjoy themselves.

Grace could have easily slipped in my pocket, and I don't think anyone would have ever known.  What a doll face.
No trip is complete without the girls in their matching jammies.

We danced the night away to Michael Jackson on Wii. and much to my despair, this is the ONLY picture I have of Rochelle and I together!  UGH!  how did this happen?  Rochelle, tell me you have just one that I can post where we don't look like sweaty non-rhythmic fools!
24 hours is just not enough time.  It never is.

holiday highlights.

In no particular order: Christmas Eve with the Ancich Cousins.  Back to back church services.  The kids all dressed up.  Skyping with Lisa and Frank from Brazil.  New toys.  Yummy dinners.  Left right center and BINGO.  Lots of play time.  Another magical holiday family-style.

size 6.

Inspired by a picture I saw of baby feet in front of a Christmas tree, I snapped a quick picture of Hunter's giant (almost the same size as mine) feet yesterday.  Yet another reminder that they aren't getting any younger and the need to embrace this year's magic as if it is the last.

Merry Christmas. To you. And yours.

cabin fever

notes like these have been posted as threats this week as we have been on torrential downpour lockdown for 6 straight days...

Yesterday's task lists were effective enough to land us at the indoor batting cages for an hour:

Three individuals in particular broke some much needed sweat and raised their heart rates above what it takes to sit on the couch and watch Christmas movies all. day. long.
