pen pals.

 In efforts to keep our daughter's connected between visits, my friend Rochelle and I have them writing letters to each other.  The first arrived today in the mailbox for Avery and she couldn't have been happier. 
 It arrived complete with glittery sequins and all, leaving a love trail through the front door.
 Thank you Bailey... she loved it and yours will be on it's way shortly.
 Its a very colorful week around here: Dr. Suess dress up week at school.  My friend Leanne made Avery this oh so Suessical hair bow for the occasion. 
Today all 3 strutted their crazy sock selves to school in style.  I loved it.

Snake Eyes and Scarlet

The everlasting fire-bellied frogs.  Sometimes we (Davin) forget about them.  But they don't die. They don't do much of anything... no noise, no smell, no mess, no nothing.  Easy to forget, acutally.  The lowest maintenance pets we've ever had...

mid week.

I'm sure this yawn was followed after a rigorous day of sun bathing, chasing flies, barking at passing fire trucks, and marking lots of territory.  tough life.

About as close as we'll ever get to real snow.

tag alongs.

 I took the kids along on a photoshoot yesterday in Downtown Fullerton.  We arrived early to scout out locations.  The weather was fickle... we endured rain and then enjoyed the few minutes of sun.  Starbucks hot chocolate warmed them up when it got unbearably cold.  A fun day out with lunch at Spaghetti Factory as a reward.

I have a problem. 

Getting organized is never the issue, its staying organized that I can never seem to master. 

For 3 hours last night I pulled, folded, rearranged, color-coded, tossed, and bagged everything in my closet and dresser.  What a good feeling.  My drawers can breath again.

 Avery is loving her new extension homework of retelling what she's read in her own writing journal.  She loves to illustrate the craziness of her favorite character, Junie B. 
and I love the way the late afternoon streams into our kitchen windows everyday shedding light on the perfect workspace for all that homework.

don't ask.

Yes that is one of the those wrist slapping bracelets curled up on Davin's nose.  Only Davin.

good golf.

Valentine's Day 2011.

firestation 15.

Today the Daisy's got to tour the local firestation.  They got to sit in the trucks, talk to the firemen, and check out the living quarters.  A fun outing for our little troop.

Happy Valentine's Day to you & yours.

Valentine's Eve.

My valentine had a few tricks up his sleeve this year.  He started by arranging an over nighter for the kids with Grammy.  Then we were off to our dinner reservation in Fullerton for some yummy sushi.

He pulled a few fun small gifts out of his "Mary Poppins" gift bag throughout the night.  But this blue bag really surprised me.  I cried before I even opened it.
Elsa Peretti Collection monogram letter "S" necklace.  It doesn't get any better. 

Its perfect... just like my valentine.
