This sums it up nicely...

"Exploding Head" by Keith Haring

The last time we purchased a home we were in escrow during the holidays and visiting family out of town. It seems we need to learn a lesson in stress management. It's happening all over again. Déjà Vu. Only this time we have two little ones along for the crazy ride that is our life.

That being said. We are excited to have a new home soon and spend some time with our Utah family for Christmas. Snow here, we come.

Getting Lil Sis to smile for the camera for our Christmas card photos was torturous this year. She fell asleep in the car on the way over. And in typical Lil Sis fashion is an extreme grump when she wakes up. I tried every trick in the book to get her to smile (candy?). I resorted to some pretty funny stuff. What finally did the trick is a little too embarrassing to post! Since I embarrass the girls enough on this blog, I thought I deserve a turn now. Enjoy the pics. (BTW we did get one shot of her smiling, just the one!)

We're singing in the rain...

Finally some cold weather around here in California. I got to wear my new scarf I just picked up here.
The girls played in the rain.
Then we had a great thanksgiving at my grandma's. I was in charge of making dessert. My mom, gave me a tutorial on how to make pies. They turned out really well, if I do say so myself. Everyone loved the Gingered Apple-Cranberry Pie. I'm hoping my in-laws will let me make it for them at Christmas.

Just for giggles... this is how we found Lil Sis after Thanksgiving dinner.
