Playing Catch Up...

So, in an effort to FINALLY catch up on here... I decided to pick 2 pictures from each event that I have wanted to blog about. Of course, I had much bigger plans when I was taking picture after picture at each event, so... 2 will have to do!

Santa Came to Town...

We had a surprise visit from Santa earlier this week (thanks to Mimi and Papa!) He came to bring all the kids their Christmas pajamas. Archer was beside himself and could've talked to him ALL NIGHT!




Choo - Choo

Archer got to go down to San Diego with 3 Mimis and their grandsons. What a fun day! They headed down on the train, got off to eat at Papa's restaurant Tommy Pastrami, and then headed back!



Cousins!!!

Uncle Robert, Auntie Tiff, Jesus Marcos, and Loie came down for a Christmas visit. We had so much fun! Can you tell how much Archer liked his new Toy Story pajamas? He would wear them EVERY DAY ALL DAY if he could!


A neighborhood visit to Santa. Do you see a pattern with poor Beau? Someone doesn't like Santa AT ALL!!!

Downtown Disney

We headed to Downtown Disney with the Heinrichs to see the carolers at the California Hotel. We got to visit Santa again! What a great surprise - for one of them!

Hanging out with Kyle and Jayden at Downtown Disney!


Fa-la-la-la-la-la-la-la-la!!!

Archer had his first preschool Christmas program.
As the kids were walking in to the performance, the teachers had told them to be quiet on their way! Someone took it seriously. He walked in the whole way to the stage telling people to be quiet...



He was absolutely adorable! I love his enthusiasm in the picture below. What a star!!!


Christmas Tree Decorating

What a big helper. He took his job very seriously!



These were some of the ornaments I found in our tree. A dinosaur and "Slinky the Dog." Thanks, Arch.



Thanksgiving in the Desert

We spent the week of Thanksgiving in Palm Desert with family! We had such a great time. Here Max is wearing a sympathy patch for Arch. So sweet!


Getting a lesson about the "insides" of the turkey. Only Mimi would do this...for sure not his mommy.


Thanksgiving Feast

Archer had his Thanksgiving Feast at school. Mimi and Beau got to join us!


With his preschool class!


Oops... more Thanksgiving pictures! Enjoy!

Trying to get a brother picture!

Loving his Daddy!!! This is what our sweet boy normally looks like... not all the crying pictures! Thanks a lot, Santa!


Beau First Birthday!!!

Someone turned 1! He has added so much to our family that we couldn't imagine our lives without him!!!


Look at all the little fingers that were trying to help him eat his cake!


PHEW... all caught up!
