Meeting Morgan

The kids and I went to Petaluma for the long weekend. I told them that there was no way I was getting out of my pajamas, then my mom thought of the great idea to go to Chinatown for lunch....I got out of my pajamas!
 We walked around downtown, which I haven't really done since high school!  Lots of memories came back and I realized why I was into certain things when I was growing up!  Petaluma is such a mix of a hick/hippy town!

 It was Susannah and Kevin's anniversary on Saturday, so we watched the girls...and met Morgan!
 Peyton was adorble, of course!
 And we all fell in love with Morgan!
 She is about 4 months old now and such a little sweetie!  She didn't cry at all and will just hang out and chill and then when you start talking to her, she will just smile this huge open mouth smile!
 Morgan is a perfect little addition to the family, we all love her so much already!

My Work Life Is Crazy

 Oh my goodness.  I don't think that I have ever been this busy in any job that I have ever had!  But I enjoy my job, so it is all worth it!  I've had to get everything all worked through for both K-6 13-14 enrollment as well as choice placement.  Plus, I had to redo the registration forms to make life easier for parents and our schools.  They also decided to change my schedule around a bit, so I will work one day a week at each of the high schools and they had me move my office at one high school to a different location.  I'm pretty happy about that because I really felt like the other office wasn't really mine and I was living in the shadow of the person before me.  Now I get to set things up how I want them!  I still have my office the same at the District office though, so I'm just running around all over the place, but it is also fun getting to know people in person at the elementary schools, since I mostly work with them electronically.

 Carrie and her family have been in the states for a bit doing their annual visit.  They were in California for a week, so I drove up to have Sunday dinner with the Hunsakers, Kearls and Wasdens.  It was FANTASTIC getting all caught up and being able to see one of my life long best friends. Pretty sure another visit to China needs to be in the works, especially since little girl Hunsaker is due soon!

I'm a Stalker

 Bob decided to take Lisa, Kyra and I to the PGA Pro-AM.  Kyra and I got to Monterey on Friday night.  We all went out to a fabulous dinner and then headed to our hotels.  We got up early the next day and headed to Pebble Beach.  It was a beautiful day and Kyra and I ended up following Josh Duhamel around basically all day...two feet away from him anytime we could get there.  I probably wasn't supposed to, but I got his autograph.  We weren't supposed to take pictures at all while we were there, or else that is something I would have with Josh, but that's ok.  We also saw Andy Garcia, the coach for the Niners, the Giant's Pitcher, Ray Romano...and other famous people that I don't know who they are!  We actually watched as Andy Garcia ran off the course and knocked on the door of someone's house so that he could go use the bathroom!  Josh was really funny though and talked a lot to the crowd.  I'm sure he thought Kyra and I were stalkers, but we calmed down after Kyra finally got up enough nerve to ask for his autograph as well.  We were all exhausted by the end of the day, but well worth it!  Thanks Bob!

Defying Gravity

We were totally excited to finally go see Wicked!  We decided to make a full San Francisco day out of it.  We went and played around Pier 39 before heading to the theater.  There was a groupon to do some sort of 7D experience where we were fighting zombies in 3D, with guns, sounds, lightening, moving chairs, etc.  It was pretty fun!  They were keeping score and I actually got 6th place out of 19...I guess if there is a zombie war, stick with me and you might get out alive!  

 We went and had lunch at the Crab House, which was SO good.  We also randomly got some mini donuts and ended up fighting over the whole bucket, they were soooo good!  The kids still bring them up!  Then basically shopped around and then headed to the theater.  The musical was awesome and we all had a lot of fun!

 Gotta love living in the Bay Area!  I feel so cultured!  :)

Utah Friends

Time went by really fast while I was in Utah.  I saw as many of my friends as I could, but it is never long enough with each of them!  I didn't get a lot of pictures, but I was sure that I was able to get a picture of getting to meet my new little niece, Scarlett...Jessica had a little girl on January 4th and she is just a doll!

     Yeah, I saw lots of other friends as well, but these are the only pictures I time I'll take lots more pictures!
