Our November

We had a busy November.
KT's team got 2nd place in the volleyball tournament:
We all worked very hard at the Peppermint Ridge Lovewalk (especially AC):

I can't wait to be on the committe again next year. It was something that was so foreign to me to be involved in but I loved it!
On Thanksgiving we went to the movies and then to Dave and Buster's:

It took me

all of these


to get


normal one:
(I swear they're worse than 4 yr olds!)
I got the high score of the day in virtual bowling:

The day after Thanksgiving, we put up our Christmas decorations.

This is what people who sneak up and scare other people deserve. I'm sorry, but Halloween is my least favorite holiday ever. I've hated it since I was a child. Why? Because I'm a big fraidy cat!

I'm sorry. YouTube is dangerous.

What is it about a pie in the face that cracks me up so much?!?
This one is so fun! It's got Frank Gorshin as the Riddler, Bruce Willis, Jack Lemmon, Three's Company...


This is for my Dad

Wordless Wednesday

For some reason, my laptop won't let me type above the first picture so I'll just start right here. The above little guy kept me company the other day when I was doing yard work.
We've been busy. School, church, recovery meetings. On Wednesday my English prof pulled me outside and said it was obvious I didn't need to be there for the lectures on sentence structure and grammar so if I wanted to, I could skip Mondays and only come in on Wednesday for the writing part of the class and he would still give me full credit!!!!! Of course I took him up on it!!! I also finished my Intro to College course. It was only a 6 week course. And I aced my first Sociology mid-term. I started the Women's bible study at Harvest and next Friday I start one of the small home group bible studies.
The kids both had the flu super bad this past week. Thank God I never did get it. It is a really nasty one, too. Fevers of over 103 for at least 3 days. Just terrible. But everyone is fine now.
Some randomness:
My children thought I was insane for taking a picture of my leaky faucet outside. I think it's kinda cool.

Today was Jade's big breast cancer walkathon in Corona (well, it's not in Corona, more like El Cerrito).
The place it was at was gorgeous.
Here's the walkway...

There was a small lake there, too.

I didn't walk due to the ligament in my leg, but KT walked with Jade.

Best tshirt of the day...

My baby made a small speech about what the Foundation did for her. She was awesome!!!!!
I am soooooo proud of her!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

This is when the breast cancer survivors release their balloons.
Gets me every single time.

KT, Jade, her sister Nicole, and Nicole's mom, Debbie..a survivor

Why I do it.

This is Jade's nephew Logan. He liked my camera.

So many things.....

It's been soooooo long. First of all, my mom is in the hospital. She had about 8" of her intestines cut out. Please pray for her. She's doing better, but not great.
I've been so busy with school and church and work. The picture above is from my alma mater. I went to an all-class reunion a few weeks ago. It was amazing to see people who graduated in the 40's, 50's and 60's there!

We went to the Harvest Crusade both the Friday night to see Third Day and the Saturday night to see Reliant K and Skillet.
My fellow class of 81 friends got together for dinner:

Last Friday was my 46th birthday.
Guess where we went?

The Happiest Place on Earth of course!!! We had a blast!!
Every other Saturday this summer, we've joined our church's Surf Fellowship at local beaches. We just hang out, have church on the beach with worship and a message and then bbq lunch. It's pretty awesome to have the guy leading the worship do it soaking wet in a wet suit.


AC's Baptism. Go to the 1:11 mark. It's him in the water with the high school pastor and then him talking to the cameraman.
