Here Comes Santa Claus

I know it's not even December 1st.....but I couldn't help myself. For some reason I'm even more excited about Christmas than ever.

Kids Update


- Is obsessed with these glasses we got at Claire's. She pretty much wears them every day. They look adorable on her.
- In the first grade (still can't quite believe it).
- Still has only lost 8 teeth and no cavities - I think she definitely takes after daddy.
- Taking piano lessons and I think she loves it. Her teacher is great, so that helps!
- Current favorite TV show is Liv and Maddie.
- Breakfast of choice is rice krispies with bananas.
- Her best friends are Abby, Harper, Lili, and her cousin Emma.
- Loves to play Legos with Buster. Her teacher also has the class build lego designs every friday.
- Has rediscovered her love of Barbie dolls.
- Barely wears dresses anymore. It kills me a little bit inside.


- Loves to play legos with Olive. It sometimes ends in tears - but at least they can play nicely for a little bit.
- Can build very intricate tracks for his trains.
- Stubborn. He and I go head to head and it sometimes doesn't end well. For either of us.
- His teeth are starting to come down a little in the front. Sadly, he has a baby cavity in the back. He lets me floss it every night. If I forget - he ALWAYS reminds me.
- Breakfast of choice is a waffle and a chocolate donut.
- Has a hard time cleaning up after himself at home. It's gotten so bad I've had to bribe him with money. I wish I was kidding.
- Current favorite TV show is Blaze.
- Almost wears the same size shoe as Olive. I swear he's getting waaaaaay too big. He's definitely not my little baby anymore.
- Comes into our room every morning around 4am and asks if he can crawl into bed with us. It's pretty much the cutest thing ever. I never say no.
- Is the healthiest out of all of us. We all get hit with sickness and he usually gets it the mildest...if at all!

Bye Bye Tonsils

Last Monday Olive had her tonsils and adenoids removed. Thankfully she had one of the best pediatric ENT's in Los Angeles so everything went smoothly. The scariest part was her waking up from the anesthesia. For the last couple of days she's been a trooper. Her throat really hurts, but that is to be expected. I'm hoping in the next couple of days she'll be back to eating all of her favorite things. Surprisingly - she's over ice cream!!!

Walkathon 2017

For the last two years Olive has raised the most money at her schools walkathon. I'm hoping this year will be no different. It seems she raised over $1700! Thank you to all of our family members and friends who pledged.

Halloween - Party

Before Halloween we had a big party at a friends house. Sadly, Olive was super sick and couldn't make it. Hence, we were down a Rydell High cheerleader and a Danny Zuko. Buster and I ended up  going anyway and he won the boys costume contest!! He was pretty cute as a T-Bird. In case you didn't know - I was dressed up as Stephanie Zenoni from Grease 2. Man....I LOVE that movie.

Halloween, 2017

For the past few years we go back to Brentwood Glenn for Halloween. This year we decided to stay local. As you can see we went as GREASE. And yes the kids have cigarettes (they are candy I swear) in the bottom picture.   Olive's favorite thing to say these days is "Tell me about it......STUD"- with a hair flip included. It's pretty much the cutest thing ever.
