Week in heaven

We just returned home from a week in Cabo. It was such a fun trip and we made so many memories (none of which Adele will ever remember!) Oh well, we got to enjoy the sunshine and each other.

Adele hated the ocean and sand, but she loved the swimming pool! Definitely her mama's girl.

Halloween Decor

I bought these fun orange and black ornaments and wasn't quite sure how I could use them. Since my pots were empty, I thought I could somehow use the space. I had it all envisioned in my head. So, I grabbed Tyler and told him to hold still while I climbed on top of his shoulders. Here I am standing on Tyler's shoulders with long clippers in my hand trying to get these branches from the back yard. I almost lost my life, but I got the branches that I wanted. So I hauled them to the front yard where I had some cardboard laid out to spray the branches. Tyler is shaking his head and says, "You know we look like the crazy neighbors with you painting dead branches in the front yard!" So I almost lost my life and am now labeled the crazy neighbor, but I ended up with some pretty cute Halloween decorations.

Snuggly Bear

While daddy bear is away, the little bears come out to play! This is Adele's warm football outfit. These pictures crack me up. She looks like a big stuffed teddy bear. This calls for some serious snuggling tonight! MMM I can't wait. . .

Gook Luck Dad

Tyler is riding his bike (yes his bicycle) to Vegas. They left this morning and are riding over a hundred miles a day for four days. His office does this ride for charity every year. This year they are donating the money to the tsunami victims in Samoa. Check this out to donate or to get more information.

Mommy did some damage. . .

I did some serious damage today at Nordstrom, oops!! My latest obsession is shopping for clothes for Adele. I think I need a new hobby- this one is getting a bit pricey. Funny how I spend my days dresses in rags, but Adele is always dressed with nicer things than I own. She is like my little doll that I can play dress ups with.  Every morning she wakes up and we put on an outfit, she usually barfs or poops or gets it dirty and then we just put another cute one on. Some days we go through several. I am glad for now that she doesn't have an opinion on the matter :D

High Chair Please

Enjoying rice cereal in her high chair.  She looks so small in it now, but I know it won't be long before I can barely squeeze her in there!
