Garrett's Moves

This past weekend we headed up to Santa Barbara for the wedding of our friends, Matt & Sarah. We left the kids at home. We made the most of having the night off. We went out in Santa Barbara after the wedding. This is what happened.
Garrett has SICK moves.
back off ladies, he is T-A-K-E-N.

a COWBOY who's 3!

This incredibly handsome and amazingly sweet boy, turned 3 years old on December 27.

We wanted to make his week extra special, (the guilt of having a Christmas baby is really setting in...) so we took him to Knott's Berry Farm!
and he rocked out on his new microphone from Papa and Grammy...
and played at the beach...in his underwear
but the REAL fun came on Friday, Dec. 31st, when it was time for his HORSEY PARTY!
We took him to a local ranch that we visit often with 10 of his friends to ride and feed horses!
and, of course, our awesome friends-the Wenkers-were there taking amazing pictures
Jack.......................................Keegan
(check out their outside legs!)
Jackson in "horsey heaven"
no horse party is complete without a romp in the dirt/manure pile
well hello there Fred.
"dude, I'm telling you--his name is Pete!"
Yee-HAW!
a great family picture...one that captures our lives at the moment, happy, beautiful So. Cal,..and all things HORSE.

Christmas in Cali

We spent Christmas in our own house this year! It was a first for us since before having kids, and SO much fun! Jackson is at the age where he is just grasping the Santa concept so this year was especially exciting.


Our Christmas season started off a little rough...
We've gotten a 10+ foot tree every year we've lived here, this year was the prettiest we've ever had!
A letter from Santa--we never did this in my house growing up so it was really fun for me to see Garrett get so excited about writing the kids a letter!
Gracie LOVES Santa
Christmas dinner=a pizza picnic in the living room
My cowboys "doin' their jobs, catching bandits!"
Gracie girl opening her gifts....only took her like 15 minutes per gift!
our cowGIRL!
the main thing he asked Santa for--a HORSEY present!
