Our week..

brown eyed girl...

Ready to go out to a birthday party! Cole is pretty upset because he thought the birthday toy was his. MINE!! Pease momma! MINE! He was devastated when it got wrapped...
We got Savannah this new LeapFrog game for the tv that helps her spell words. She is getting pretty good at it and loves to impress us! Cole stands by the tv and yells the letter and the sound. He says heh, heh, H, heh, heh, H. SO cute

Mike worked Monday-Thursday so this week went by super fast. He now has 8 days off so we are getting the house ready for Christmas and Thanksgiving! The grimmers are coming to stay tomorrow for the night and Jason and Erin are coming for Thanksgiving! We are excitied to have company. Here are some of the highlights of the week:
-Finally got our dinner club together, we will start in a couple weeks. I have really been missing this since moving from Lancaster. What a time saver it was, I absolutely loved it! If anyone is interested in starting one of their own, get the book Girlfriends on the Go, Dinner Club (not the exact title but something like that) by Suzie Roberts.
-Got food posioning from bad Chinese food, yuk I will skip all Chinese for the rest of the pregnancy
-Went to another Sample sale with Laura, we stayed at a hotel the night before and then got there nice and early. We stayed like 3 hours and still didn't have enough time. Addison was a natural born shopper and a crowd pleaser as well..such a cutie.... we found fun baby stuff, I loved it!
-Signed up Savannah for a charter school called EARTH, it's a science magnet school here in Thousand Oaks, well she will go in the lottery and if she is picked she will start there next fall. Can't you just picture her in a cute little uniform! I am so hoping she will get in, it has more individualized teaching methods, smaller classroom sizes and hands on learning type of activities. They also offer full day kindgergarten 8-1:30 so I will be able to actually accomplish a few things while she is there. We don't find out until the middle of Jan if she gets in our not, cross your fingers!
Now we are looking forward to the holidays!!

Santa and Snow!

What do you think of this little elf face!! Oh I just want to squeeze him all day!
Went to the California Mart in downtown la on Friday and scored some super cute stuff!! I went with my friends who own a kids boutique and they happened to have tons of samples available. Had to post one of my buys modeled by Savvy, Flowers by Zoe had all samples all size 5 for 15$ an outfit, so amazing. It made me so so happy!!
Mad at me for putting him down! The nerve!
Pointing at all the snow........It honestly melted as fast as it came out as it was about 80 degrees out still. Savannah below moving in for the hug from Santa.........
At the mall they had snow and Santa Claus on Friday night, it was super cute for the kids. Although the weather has been super hot and more fires than snow, it was nice to enjoy the start of the Christmas season with something festive!! There are so many fun and free things to do around here for the holiday season. Another outdoor mall close to us called the Lakes has ice skating going outside!! So we can enjoy the season and the 70 degree weather and the same time apparently........

Obama Plans To Close Gitmo

Why seriously in this economy with all his huge promises, is this Obama's first and most important (in his opinion) task?? C'mon pres, pay attention to us we are waiting for big change.
I mean I get that it is unfair but we have bigger fish to fry here, remember all the stuff you were talking about whilst trying to get elected?? C'mon Obama lovers (I know you're reading this Ryan :) We want to know ?????? WHY this and why is it the MOST important task for the americans right now??

I'm 4 so I can dress myself now...

Savannah wanted to dress herself for church yesterday. Note that her shoes are made from shiny fabric......I had to tell her it was too cold but would be perfect for the next barbie ball we attended ;)

Picture Blog

Every once in a while when I least expect it Savannah and Cole will be nice to each other and it gives me a glimmer of hope for the future..........
Loving the swing at the Grimmers. This kid will stay on a swing for like an hour (or however long I can last pushing him)
Happy Halloween!
Trick or Treat!
Tinkerbell aka Samantha and the ladybug aka Savannah
Cole would stop after every house and check out the candy. Here are some pretty exciting mini m & ms.....
the dads and the girls..........

Love this pic of Savannah, truly a happy face for her, hard to capture on camera since she immediatly puts on the funny fake smiley face for the camera....

Mickey's Trick or Treat Party

Mike dressed up like a ghostbuster. It was a big hit with all the workers. He had a few disneyland workers (mostly guys) hit on him. After one he was like speechless and shocked at how bold the guy was! Wife and kids present, hello!!

The princesses were all into Cole and he kept playing coy.

They named Savannah princess of the carousel and she got to tell them when to start the ride. She was pretty excited.....

My little ladybug and dinosaur! Savannah broke her antennas seriously 1 minute after putting them on and Cole HATED his dinosaur costume. It didn't help that it was like 85 degrees out. So annoying, its supposed to be cold at halloween!! It was fun though and we will probably go again next year (baby in my babyhawk of course) I will post pics of halloween night sometime today.....
