Beach babes

We had our first family trip this past week. We went to Avila Beach. It was awesome! The weather was beautiful and the kids loved it. If you haven't been it is a great low-key place for kids to play and enjoy the beach. We still have friends that live in SLO and we are so jeoulous of you! You know who you are!...We had a great thanksgiving with Jake's family. For those of you who don't know my sister-in-law, Jacob's brothers wife, is having twins! She finds out next week what they are having. I will keep you posted. It is neat to share this special time with her, since it is so vivid for me. My kids are growing up! It is so fun...and crazy.

Ellie live in concert "A La Roof"

Well Jacob re-roofed our patio since there was one leak and so he decided to do the whole thing. Haven't had rain yet, so hopefully it will pass the test. Well, Jacob let Ellie on the roof with him and let me tell you what a little air conditioning unit can do to a 4 1/2 year old! Of course Jacob had our solar powered radio up there with country music playing. Ellie was loving it! She knows a lot of songs and especially country! She knows even the artists names! She would dance up there and was performing like a real star! I took some pics of the view from our roof. The trees were just starting to change color. It is really pretty to see. Ellie asleep on the couch. What a day! Happy Thanksgiving everyone!

Halloween was filled with sweets, the boys first sucker, Ellie cheering all night long, people asking us, "so what are your boys?"...they are army boys, hence the camo and painted faces by dad. It was an easy costume and they loved it! The best was having the trick or treaters come to our house. We had a steady flow of kids ringing our doorbell. Stay tuned for next year...
