Tonight Ben and I saw Valkyrie. We both really like World War II movies and this one was great! We really enjoyed it! It, of course, is a bit sad, but it was well done. I would highly suggest this movie to anyone. Ben gave it an A- and I gave it 4 our of 5 stars :)

Last week we saw Yes Man - This movie was awful - Skip it! You really don't need to see it...

Jazz Hands!

So I finally got my Jazz dance class grade! I loved this class - I only missed 1 class (thanks to Shelly the nail bitter) and I really liked my teacher and classmates. I learned a lot, but unfortunately did horrible on my final! I was trying to be too funny and ended up forgetting everything I had planned about 8 counts into the dance :) Whoops! But today I got my grade and I feel good - Oh I feel so good! UH!

Go Chargers!

Monday, December 29, 2008


So I have to admit that I did not think the Charger could pull this off!!! Ben was really excited about last night's game all week and I kept telling him not to get his hopes up! They had a HORRIBLE season (except for the game against the Jets - AWESOME and I was totally there!) Anyway- I did not think they could pull if off but low and behold last nigh they KILLED the BRONCOS (52 to 21)! I really hate Jay Cuttler (the Broncos QB) He is such a baby! Anyway - the Chargers seem to be peaking at the right time and I really hope they can WIN the Superbowl!!!

Merry Christmas!

Ryan had a great Christmas! We started the morning by opening presents at our house - Ryan was so funny - everything was really exciting to him! We got really funny video but no pictures so when I upload the video from my video recorder then I will post them. I also didn't get any pictures from opening presents with the Hoy's at Shane and Melinda's house - again lots of video. Then we went to my parents' house and my Dad took pictures :) Ryan got some fun toys :)

Ryan loved this toy - it shoots balls up in the air and it's really funny to watch his reaction! He actually got one from both sets of grandparents (spoiled rotten kid!)It's kind of a new tradition but every year for the past 3 or so years we go to dinner at Benihana's Christmas night. I love doing this because the food is so freaking good!!!

Merry Christmas Eve!

Last Saturday we went to see Santa! We went to this house across the street from Richland Elementary School - if you haven't seen this house or Santa - drop all your plans tonight because he will be there from 6-8p and he is the BEST SANTA EVER! Probably because he is the REAL Santa. Anyway - Here are the pictures. Merry Christmas Eve everyone!

Funny Pictures of Ryan

I forgot to post these pictures... But I'm doing that today, even though I've got about a million and one things to do!

Ryan got a Lightning McQueen suitcase for Christmas. We took it to Oregon with us and he was a big helper helping me pack...

He also likes to take all of his toys out of this ottoman thing and get inside of it. Very silly!

Sunday, December 21, 2008


That's right, Ryan is now in nursery! His first Sunday was 2 weeks ago and he loved it! I, however, cried. I'm glad that he likes nursery and that he wants to go, but I'm so sad that he is getting so big! I miss my little baby that would sleep all day long! Oh well. Today when I took him into Nursery, Seth Guerrero (who is turning 3 next month and is super cute) ran over to Ryan and gave him a big o'hug! It was so darn cute! I didn't cry today but had to take a moment to remember to breath :) haha - I'm such a dork that it's really not even funny!

Let It Snow!

I don't like to be cold, however, when in Rome... Or in my case, Oregon :)

We had so much fun in Oregon! It's nice to be able to get away and visit with good friends!

Pump It UP!

After the Pittock Mansion, we drove to Pump It Up. If you do not know what this is - please go to their website http://www.pumpitupparty.com/ - I found out that there is one in San Marcos and I'm so excited about that!!! Anyway - it's this place with a bunch of inflatable things for kids (smaller kids - which I thought was really cool seeing as I have a young one myself) and they can slide, jump, and play!

When we first got there, Ryan wasn't too sure about the place... He had been sleeping in the car and he doesn't like to be woken up... But after a sippy cup break, he found a very cool car to drive around in!He loved this car and wouldn't get out! Thank you Craigslist for helping me find one for $15 for CHRISTMAS!!!
Finally Daddy convinced Ryan to try some of the fun inflatable stuff and Ryan really started to enjoy himself!Ryan didn't know what to think about life size Winnie the Pooh...Mason is such a CUTE kid!!! He had a super fun time too!Ryan really did enjoy himself!Ryan really liked the SLIDE!!!
So did Ben... Oh dear...

Pittock Mansion

We were able to visit my BFF Ashley and her family this weekend in Oregon! We had a great time. Our first day there Ash took us to the Pittock Mansion. It was so pretty! They had it all decked out for Christmas. Apparently, this was the finish line for the Amazing Race. I don't watch that show, but it would have been a really cool finish line :)

There were a lot of scary mannequins like this one all over the place... they were all sleeping... and all of them terrified me!The thing I liked most about this place was the gorgeous windows that had view of Portland. Someday when I get a house I want lots of windows all over the place (I also figure that by the time I have a house with lots of windows I will be able to afford a window washer) Anyway - I really enjoyed the Pittock Mansion :)

PS - Ashley - Please send me the picture of Kianoa (sp) and the Poinsettia... No one will think it's funny, but I will still laugh my head off!!!
