Call The Guinness Book!

This HAS to bee some kind of record!

Or maybe not.... you might remember THIS beauty from March 2009.

You'll never look at my kid the same way... will you? Am I a bad parent for being kind of proud of my boy for this? Thoughts?

Christmas Around the World

We had the privilege of attending the Christmas Around the World Event.  It was VERY impressive to say the least!  It's a wonderful event held every year around the holiday season to celebrate the birth of the Savior with nativities and displays from all different parts of the world.  It is by far the largest nativity display I have ever seen or heard of for that matter!  It was so great to get to go and to take our kids.  I highly recommend everyone go and see it.  It's open until the end of the year and part of the proceeds go to the Children's Miracle Network.

Girls Night Out~ New Moon Edition

For our most recent girls night out we saw none other than Twilight sequel New Moon!  First of all we saw it at the NEW Maya theater downtown and I have to say that theater is amazing!  It's super nice inside and we went on a Tuesday night so the tickets were discounted to only $6.00.  The movie itself was AWESOME!  As a tried and true Twilight fanatic, having read all the books, it's really hard NOT to like it.  I couldn't help but laugh at the awes and giddy giggles from people in the theater when Jacob took his shirt off for the first time.  Jacob seriously dominated in the shirtless category.  I mean come on, it wasn't even close!  Go Team Jacob!

Thanks girls for going out with me and preserving some much needed sanity and thanks Andy for watching the kids for me.

Fire Station Tour

Recently my sister and I took the kids on a tour of the Bakersfield Fire Station!  The Fire Fighters were so great with the kids.  They took pictures with them, let them stand in the fire engine and even let them shoot the fire hose.  With the exception of Preston not having such a great day everyone had a good time.
