Finding Chairy Orchard

One day we were playing at the park when we decided to walk along the creek. After a ways we stumbled upon something very curious. Chairs. Not just 2 or 3 chairs, but maybe 100 chairs. Chairs of all shapes and sizes and colors. There were bears too. Big bears and smaller bears. Have a look, won’t you? We discovered a magical, hidden place, called Chairy Orchard. It’s hidden in a safe place where the faries can go.

Christmas tree & decor 2014

It’s beginning to feel a lot like Christmas around here. Luckily my grandmother has boxes of decorations and let me pick through them for my house. I’m thrilled. K and I had a great time putting it all out too.

Now, time to start hosting this holiday season! Merry Christmas!

The Elf on the Shelf arrives

Once you are 3 you are old enough for Santa to send you a scout elf to watch over you. So K got one sent to her just before Thanksgiving. She arrived via US mail, and K named her Ellie.

She has gotten into a few things while she’s been here. See, she wakes up at night, returns to the North Pole, and reports back to Santa.

image

Her first night here she returned with a card made by Santa.

The next night she played dress up with Boppy and Tinkerbell’s clothes!

We found her reading once too.
And another time she was watching Christmas movies.
We just can’t wait to find her every morning and see what she’s been doing.

Here are some additional photos of Ellie’s adventures:

Halloween Day 2014

Halloween is always full of treats and surprises, but this year is one I’ll never forget.
It started out pretty much the same as always. We dressed up and went trick-or-treating.

We met at Nonnies and made our way through her neighborhood.

Then we had to go pick up Shawn at the airport. He was in MN on business, and today was our 4th anniversary.

When we reached the airport I got a very big surprise…

He proposed!!! Of course, I said yes.
Happy Halloween and Happy Anniversary indeed:-)

Mr. T forgot a few things for a job he had in SF so naturally, he called me. At first I wasn’t thrilled to drive 40 miles last minute to drop off a dozen power cords, but it actually turned out to be a nice day with my daughter. We hung out down town, had lunch, and hit the park at discovery museum.
