Ireland Family Christmas Day 2010

We celebrated our family Christmas on the 19th of December this year.  Aaron, Sarah and the girls went up north to Modesto to be with Sarah's dad and to celebrate his birthday which falls just after Christmas.
Molly took the girls and flew up north to spend Christmas with her parents, sisters and their families and other relatives, I was told some had never even met Tallulah and Emmy.  Sean had to stay in Long Beach because of a very large and important job he was on deadline to complete by the end of the year..he even worked on Christmas Eve and the day after Christmas. 
This video is for you GG I hope you enjoy it..

Ho Ho Ho !!!!

Santa Listens very carefully to what Paige tells him she wants for Christmas.... a "Pink Guitar"

Reagan didn't want to sit on Santa's lap this year so I volunteered to sit with her... and that was "OK".  every year brings with it new surprises and challenges and I am willing and able to adapt to anything...

Tallulah's Birthday Party

Tallulah's turning 2 on September 21st and this past weekend Sean and Molly had a Birthday Party for her. Unfortunately Uncle Aaron and Aunt Sarah didn't make it because Reagan and Paige were sick.  Tallulah I'm sure missed them.  Lucas, who she calls "Buddy" along with Mick and her cousins Olivia and Alexandra played together, jumping in the trampoline or splashing in the 2 pools Sean had put next to each other.  Lucas & Tallulah just jumped back and forth from pool to pool having the best time.  Sean and Molly had such a delicious spread of "Smoked Pork shoulder" homemade coleslaw and beans, and T's favorite baked Mac-n-chez.. then the finale of the evening "Chocolate, Chocolate cake" YUM!!!!!
I hope you enjoy the slide show...

Armourdale Labor Day Block Party Sept 5th 2010

Our street has been having a block party for many years now and every year tops the last... This year we had a "Cowboy" Western roundup theme and everyone dressed in hats, boots, bandana's and any western attire they could come up with.  We had  mechanical bull riding, panning for gold, a bounce house, and a huge water slide. Lunch was served to all the childern (hotdogs, chips and drinks) after lunch festivities included a balloon tossing competition, dog parade, line dancing and a talent show followed by dinner and dancing in the streets to our very own "Elm Street Band" from 5:00 to 8:30.  It was such a fun day, Sean & Molly came by for awhile but had an engagement party to attend so Steve and I kept Emmy and Tallulah. Tallulah had a blast she enjoyed herself watch her dance to "California girls" with grandpa and then alone.  Sarah and Aaron with there girls had a block party of there own so we didn't see Reagan or Paige this day.  Boo Hoo they would have loved it..

Mt Baldy 1974

Most of you know that Steve and I have been together since summer between 8th and 9th grade, so just celebrating our wedding anniversary seems somewhat "not the whole picture" if you know what I mean..
Steve and I hiked Mt Baldy, here in this picture we are 18, and me 17, I know most of you don't see any change in us...(hahaha)   I just love to wander back down memory lane this time of year. 

Happy 34th August 13th 1976-2010

Cheers!!!!  34 year anniversary
Thank you Jan & Jerry Maize for sending us Chocolate covered strawberries
and Champagne..
what a wonderful surprise
