Kirsten: (whispering) "Dad, Dad, wake up. I have to wake you up because mom is anwry if I wake her up."
If only I could get a good night's sleep this wouldn't be so true. Although for my defense, it was 7:30 in the morning. I do get up on the school days....maybe this is her reasoning.

P.S. Yes, Cruz is asleep with one eye half open.

My favorite thing about the kitchen still. I have had so many people ask me when we are going to get the doors on the cupboards. The same follow-up question comes next, "How do you keep them so clean?" Also, notice Jake finally got the piece on under the sink : )
Look at all that depressing snow. And yes it is piled higher than the mailbox in places.
We only painted the kitchen where the green used to be. I love it! Now for the chair underneath.....this is Jake's next project with the bar. If you can only imagine.....(The chair is the same color as the bowl on the table.)

La Brea tarpits. This museum was quite interesting. We also had a "star" encounter here.Outside by the tar pits.
Harry and Jake having fun. Power tools and equipment...who would pass it up?
Not such a smart move here. We went and visited Grandma on Wednesday. McKay enjoyed a game of scrabble with her while the other kids loved playing with Kilee.We went to the Santa Monica pier. We opted out of Disneyland this year and decided to do that another time when we had a couple of days to spend there.On the Ferris wheel.This was one of my favorites. In Arcadia, there is a neighborhood that you can feed the peacocks from your car. The kids loved it as well.After 11 days of running away, we made it back home. Before we left Kirsten said, "Mom, you can't run away from winter!"
Well, we sure tried. : )
