Bear with the photos... we took em with our cellphones and it was dark! Just another reason I LOVE Murrieta... I never knew why there were these big white stars in the middle of streets all over the city... TILL SANTA CAME! Turns out every year Santa comes around on a big sleigh... WITH Rudolph.... and some carolers in the sled... pass out Candy Canes... Sing carols... Take pictures... and collect Canned goods for the needy. It was so much fun! So what if i'm 27... with no kids... and was so happy to see Santa:) We were over at my parents house and so we ran out with Bailee and snapped a few pics with Bailee... I mean... she's our baby girl:) We spoil her. She was SOOOO scared of Santa! It was so funny! She liked Rudolph much better. Anyhew... So glad I live here.

Who says there's no snow in Southern California???

Who says it doesn't SNOW in CALIFORNIA!!!! We aren't being wimps by complaining that it's cold in California... Granted this is higher up... not in Murrieta... but we did have a decent amount of snow right in Wildomar... just like.... 2 exits from our house. This is up at Mt. High... not known for its amazing snow but rather for its location.... Usually it consists of a few feet of "real snow" and the rest ends up being manmade... This is ALLL real though... we had a BIG storm come through. Danny, Chase, and Beau ignored the warnings and tried to go snowboarding... The road was closed and the police officer warned them if they go up and get stuck no one is coming after them.... They somehow made it up there with the Xterra and it's glorious 4weel drive.... Only to get in 1 run... get stuck on the lift for 45 minutes... and then have them have to shut down the ramp. At least they got free tickets! I'm just glad they got home safe.... albeit verry late.

Things about my Husby...

1.Where did you meet your husband? Well- technically we knew each other in like... elementary/middle school... but he just "little danny stoddart" until 2003... when I came home during the summer and saw him comin out of the ocean with his curly long head o' hair and wetsuit 1/2 on... surfboard in hand... bowchica wow wow. He wasn't little Danny Stoddart anymore;)

2.How long did you date before you got married? We dated for like... 3 1/2 months before he left on his mission... then he left and I did my thang... and then he came home and we dated off and on for about 2 years... and we got married in 2006.

3. How long have you been married? 2 years and 2 weeks.

4. What does he do that surprises you? Hes a lot smarter than his High School grades show. And he is pretty much good at everything. It's sickening.

5. What is your favorite feature of his?I miss his long curly hair;) love his blue eyes! Our kids are gonna have blue eyes... YESSIR!

6. What is his best quality? He's a stud. I know he'll do everything he can to give his future kids a better life.

7. Does he have a nickname for you?Lovebug... Most the time just babe though. You shout out lovebug in the middle of the grocery store and people will think he's gone fruity.

8. What is his favorite food?French Toast. It's impressive how much he can eat in one sitting. I think the only reason he ever stops eating it is because he's cleared his plate, my plate, and the leftovers from the table next to us.

9. What is his favorite sport?Surfing, Snowboarding, Basketball Pretty much anything. And he's pretty darn good at it all too :)

10. When and where did you first kiss?On the beach... late at night... or early morning. So romantic.. Just me, him, Demo and Heath.

11.What is your favorite thing to do as a couple? We LOVE to go on Vacations... We also love watching movies in the middle of the day.

12. Do you have any children? three. Bailee is a 1 yr old dingo.... taj is a 3 yr old tabby... and nixon is a 2 yr old fatass. oops I mean torti. As for human kids.... i'll get back to ya on that.

13. Does he have any hidden talents? He doesn't really hide much. Like i said he's good at everything. You should see him flip off buildings. He's kinda known for it. It's kinda a big deal. People know him.

14. How old is he?25 (yes... he's 2 years younger. robbin the cradle... ohhhh yea!)

15. Who said 'I love you' first? Him... obviously. I would never say it first. I thought he was kidding.

16. What is his favorite music? Mostly punk... or anything he can shake his booty to!

17. What do you admire most about him? That he's a lover not a fighter. And that he's a freakin Adonis.

18. What is his favorite color?Blue.

19. Will he read this?I seriously doubt it.

20. Who will you tag about this?I don't know what that even means. This is like... my 3rd post or something!

Babysittin' Bella

We kidnapped my parents dog Bella last nite and brought her to our house... She was in heaven. (She's not too ladylike though... silly bella. She sprawled out on the couch or up in our bed all nite... Needless to say bailee got a little green with envy! Our nephew Ricky was stayin with us last nite too... so we ended up taking Bailee, my parents dogs Bella and Reggie, and my brother's dog Remi to the dog park... (that's a WHOLE lotta dog).

Bella had just gone to the groomer's the day before... got shaved and bathed... smellin all pretty and girlie-like! So OF COURSE within 5 minutes of the dogpark fun...

She was a mess. She found a HUGE mudpool to roll in! Sorry parents:) We took her back and gave her another bath... She wasn't too happy to have 2 baths in less than 24 hours... I'm pretty sure it was worth it though!

For our Anniversary... we didn't feel like taking another big trip right after Hawaii... So we decided to just stay local and play... We went to Old Town Temecula and walked around... And of course we took our baby Baillee!:) We went into this candy store and I found Mint Aerobars! Yum! We went to Bailee's favorite restaurant... Mad Madeline's... They are dog-friendly and even give em a cold bucket of water and free dog-patties! We went and got Danny's favorite... French Toast for breakfast... Ate lots of Candy... And just had fun! Two years... in the books. No big deal really... I think we got this marriage thing down. Love ya babe-- (he'll probably never read this...)

Halloween in Maui!

We flew out to Maui for Halloween this year.... We had a blast.... We met my best girlfriend from the good ol college days and we played! We found this cute little plantation style condo/house to rent that was very quirky... and fun. We had great weather! We went on the Lanai Dolphin Landing tour and saw a bunch of Spinner Dolphins.... super fun to see! We also went to a Luau and Amber and I got onstage and pretended to Hula.... I'm sure everyone thought we were drunk skunks.... but we were sober little bunnies like always... It was Danny's B-Day that day so we had him stand up and the whole place sang Happy Birthday to him! Time went way to fast.... Time to start planning another trip!
