Date Night for Mom and Dad

Patrick and I at the Sacred Heart School Gala this year. It was so much fun to get dressed up and I thought Patrick looked pretty handsome in his tux. Evan told me I looked like sweet!

Bush Speaks at SHS Gala

Wow, wow, wow is all I have to say. What an amazing evening! I still can't believe the President George W. Bush spoke at our school fundraiser. He was incredibly candid, very funny, and extremely likeable. You kinda want to go have a beer with the guy. I feel so incredibly lucky to have been in that ballroom that evening. The best part was the amount of money he helped our school to raise! Thank you and God Bless you President Bush!!

Christmas 2010

We had a very low key Christmas this year, which was such a blessing! Just Patrick's parents and Aunt Lucy, my parents, Patrick, I and the kids. Patrick's mom and Auntie Lucy did all of the cooking and it was absolutely delicious...shredded pork tacos and homemade tamales. We opened most of the gifts Christmas Eve since Patrick had to work Christmas day. On Christmas the kids woke to stockings and their Santa gifts. The boys and I stayed in our jammies all day and the kiddos had a Wii fest. Although we missed Patrick it was so nice to just stay home and let the kids enjoy their new toys.

Wild Lights at The Living Desert

The camel ride

Ev loved the s'mores

No we may not get a rat as a pet!

Over our Christmas break, my mom and I took the kids to Wild Lights at the Living Desert. The kids had so much fun riding a camel, making s'mores by the fire, playing on the hay stack and looking at all of the beautiful lights. It was a cold night which added to the festive feel of the evening.

Our Secret Garden

So this past week we spent a week in Cambria at Patrick's parent condo. We had such a wonderful trip exploring Patrick and my absolute favorite places on earth...the tide pools, moonstone beach, the east-west trail and more. One of the most special moments of our trip was taking the kids to the garden Patrick and I were married in seven and a half years ago. We were able to capture a picture of the kids in front of the fountain much like my favorite wedding photo.
