Avila Beach

We had a memorable time with Great Grandma and Grandpa Bigelow Feb 3rd to Feb 8th. The girls were on independent study so we could take advantage of spending time with both sets of their Great Grandparents and their Grandma Bulkeley. We went to the beach every day and the water was so cold that even the girls only got their feet wet. They got wet every day at the pool though and spent most of the time in the hot tub. We had our own room and that was for the sanity of those who are not used to Paige. We are working on the screaming for both happiness and not getting what she wants. It will be a long battle. We got to go to Shell Beach and the girls touched sea in enemies and loved exploring. We also saw the butterflies at Pismo Beach and had fish and chips. We will always remember the memories we shared with everyone. Thanks Grandma and Grandpa Bigelow for the condo and thanks to Grandma and Grandpa Richards for coming we loved your company. Also we can't forget Grandma Bulkeley for feeding us every day while we were there. I love spending time with family expecially at the beach!

Our own Inspiration Posters

This year for Valentines Day I knew that Jacob liked the inspiration posters. I was going to order them and I realized the that pictures were of other people and how much more special it would be to have these posters of his family in his office. He really liked them so I wanted to share them with all of you too.

Hannah Montana Concert

Grandma Krumm and I took the girls to see Hannah Montana and we all loved it. The girls were singing along to all the songs and they were pretty good. We all enjoyed the show.

Our week away

Jacob was going out of town while his parents were visiting and they offered the night before he was leaving to watch the kids so I could go too. I packed that night and we were off to Ventura at 4am. I had a great time shopping while Jacob was working then the next day when we were going to be coming home the grapevine was closed. We called and told DeeDee and Steve the good news and stayed from Tuesday morning until Friday night. We decided to stay for the tickets we had for "Wicked" and Jacob got to see Hollywood for the first time too. We had a great time alone and we are so grateful that we got that time together.

Another Surprise Party

Jacob through me a surprise party again for my birthday. I loved having everyone together and not having to make dinner on my birthday was the best gift.

Hannah's Build A Bear party

Hannah wanted to have a build a bear party this year. We bought three stuffing machines and I made outfits for the bears. It was all worth it Hannah thanked us over and over. We also played the Hannah Montana DVD game. We all had lots of fun.

This is our family party. Mom and dad were pretty sick this year but the party must go on. Hannah's favorite gift this year was the dancing Barbie that you control.

Student of the Month

Savannah was recognized at Veterans Elementary as Mrs. Gonzales' student of the month. She was mostly excited about the library card.

Youngest to oldest is still the tradition. The big hit this year was the ipods and for the girls the babies.
