Harvest Party 2009

Well, for our first one, I'd say it was a success. Everyone seemed to enjoy themselves, weather was perfect, wine was flowing and the bands played great music. The food catered by Wes Nielsen, all made with Calivirgin or Calivinegar was quite delicious. Looks like the makings for an annual event! Thank you again to everyone who was able to make it, hope you enjoyed yourselves - we loved having you!

As always you can purchase Calivirgin Extra Virgin Olive Oil or Calivinegar on our website.
The new $3 sample bottles make great stocking stuffers!!!

Beautiful Decor
Giada attended the party and enjoyed playing with everyone! Great Aunt Patsy had a beautiful necklace she couldnt take her eyes off!
Then she got sleepy and took a LONG nap. Babies are so innocent looking when they are sleeping.

Bartenders- Scott and Summer, thank you for all your help!

This past weekend Mike and I were in LA for Julie Lewinson's wedding.
It was a beautiful wedding and we had a wonderful time catching up with friends.
This is the LA/ college friend crew. Jen- thanks again for hosting us for the weekend, and Gelbart thanks for spending every last minute driving back and forth to spend time with us. Gar- great catching up on Saturday while we were "entertaining ourselves" :)

Dylan Turns 1!

(Jackie- hope this brings a smile to your face for your Monday morning - hot chocolate!)

Hard to believe it was a year ago that the baby boom began in our area and Dylan was born. How fast it went by!

This weekend we were actually home for once with nothing to do except attend Dylan's birthday. We had a great time at the party, and enjoyed the rest of the weekend getting things done around the house and watching baseball, football, and golf! Despite the Twins loss, we had fun cheering them on!

Birthday boy!
He was a good sport with the celebration hat and all!

There were so many kids there it was fun for them to all play together. We took a couple pics of the babies, and their mama's. (Bre and Peyton, sorry we didn't think of this before you left!)

Giada is so rough with the kids, luckily Nico was a good sport as were Marc and Renee. She would climb all over Nico, knock him down and try to pull his hair. She is so rough with Sydney(our dog) I think she thinks she can be rough with everyone...yikes :) She did try to give him an occasional kiss too, so I guess that makes it all better!
Giada loved the ball pit, I think she may find one at our house in the future!
