Sunday Evening on the Beach

We flew to Southern California last Sunday. After a great lunch at Maggiano's and a stop to buy a stroller (for Disneyland), we finally made it to our condo in Newport Beach. After unloading the car, the girls all wanted to head to the beach. Crystal Cove Beach is beautiful. We got there about 20 minutes before it closed for the night. We had to hurry down the path to get to the beach so the girls could run around for a few minutes.
What a gorgeous sunset.

Thankful for Music

Paige was in the third grade Thanksgiving music program on Thursday.
She played the drum in one of the songs. It sounded very cool.
Singing her heart out.
Heading off to school that morning.

Fabulous Five Year Old

This beautiful girl turned five years old today.
Yesterday we had a Tinker Bell party with all of her girl friends from preschool. They watched the new Tinker Bell movie and decorated party hats.
Kiley and Hannah made and decorated a beautiful (and delicious) cake.
Cute girls!
This morning she woke up to family gifts waiting on the kitchen counter. She opened one after breakfast and patiently waited until after dinner to open the rest. She chose sausages, eggs and rice for breakfast. Grandma and Grandpa Dildine and Uncle Junyo (Jimmy) came over this afternoon for Costa Vida burritos and Chocolate Eclair Cake.
Happy Birthday Susanna!

Just a Week Late

This what our front porch looked like on Halloween. Brad and the girls carved their jack-o-lanterns in the afternoon.
We had our friends, the Wilhites, over for dinner.
Julie and I put together a ghoulish meal.
The gang ready for trick or treating.
Lizzie went as a diva.
An extra shot for you Melissa.
Paige was a hippie.
Susanna was a cuddly lady bug.
Kerrie was a cozy little dog.
Hannah hammed it up as a naughty baby.
Kiley went out with out with her friends. She was an 80's aerobic instructor.
The younger crowd practiced at our door before heading out into the neighborhood.
A fun time was had by all.

Pumpkin Patch

A week ago Saturday we took the girls out to a pumpkin patch. We sat on hay bales on a wagon and rode out to the field.
It was kind of chilly, so we had to huddle up for warmth.
Perfect pumpkin, Hannah.
Lizzie made a great choice.
Kerrie putting her huge muscles to use.
I love a great group picture in a pumpkin patch.
Kerrie gives the experience "two thumbs up".
(I make her do this for me all the time. It cracks me up.)
