Light Parade, Venice, & SLO

December is did that happen???? Well since it's here we might as well start celebrating right?? Lodi Light Parade always gets us in the holiday spirit. We had a big group this year(although we couldn't get everyone in one picture), kids loved seeing Santa on the Firetruck, and the weather was great!

Then early the next morning, I headed down south with both kids for an adventure! Call me crazy, but it turned out better than expected. We made it to Venice in 6 hours, and only 2 stops. Had fun catching up with the girls Friday night at Jens, and the reason for the trip - Jen's baby shower on Saturday. The mustache bash came together and Baby Boy Schweitzer was spoiled rotten! Thanks Jen and Garreth for having us!!

Mustache Bash!
Mimosa Bar!

Photo Booth provided some fun. The big or not smile in mustache pics???
Thanks Aunt Julie for running around with Giada!!
College Friends!
The prego girls!

I didn't get any pictures but we also had a wonderful visit with the Noriegas before heading to SLO Sunday afternoon. Thanks for having us over and hope to see you in December!!

Then it was off to SLO for the night. Thanks Clarins for having us over!! We headed out on Monday to see the butterflies that are migrating through town.

What looks like big clusters of leaves are thousands of butterflies!Trying to get 4 kids in a pic, impossible....but atleast they are all looking, this is the best one we got!
After to the beach. Giada and Addy were so brave, and didn't seem to care at all that the water was freezing!

Jackie and Jake met us for Firestones before we hit the road!

Julie Hager with Thrive Photography snapped a couple cute pics with her phone while we were out and about. Can't wait to see the others she captured of the kiddos!

And this is what we are getting a lot of lately.....wink eye!!
- She just asked me today "is Jens baby still in her tummy or is it out and can run with me"
- We can say "oh man but not stupid and not shut up"
- Walking to the beach in Venice we come up on a guy with dreadlocks...we are standing right next to him and she points and says over and over "mom what is that guys crazy hair, what is that guys crazy hair" I just looked over and smiled, and said sorry she's never seen dreadlocks.....
- "mom mom mom Jules" apparently if I don't answer quick enough, she uses my real name!
