The Oates Visit and Matt's Birthday

We were SO very excited to have the Oates come and stay with us for 5 nights.  They packed A LOT into their visit and stayed quite busy.  The fun part was that we got to see them more than we otherwise would have, since they stayed with us.

They arrived on a Thursday and we hosted dinner.  It was so much fun to have everyone there.

Thanks to my selfie stick, I got a cell phone picture of us all, lol.
The guys all wore their matching Glorieta Camp shirts that James got them.

The kids all love each other too!

Friday and Saturday they were busy all day long.  Saturday is when our family celebrated Matt's birthday.  Monday was his actual birthday, but that was the golf tournament. For breakfast I made him cinnamon rolls from scratch and we gave him his gifts.  We did housework all day, but then the Flores' came over for dinner.  I made a yummy pork tenderloin with an apple cider brandy glaze…

My Birthday

My birthday fell on a Monday this year, so we celebrated over the weekend.  On Friday the Flores' crew came over to our house and we had a yummy meal and a yummy dessert that Jolene brought.  It is always wonderful to spend time with them.

The only picture I took was of the kids eating.

On Sunday my mom made me my requested crab leg dinner, and I enjoyed it a lot!  The funniest part of the night was that she got me a pinata.  It was actually the first pinata I've ever had in my life.  We all got a good laugh out of it, and of course the kids loved the candy!  I was using a crutch to hit it because we didn't have a bat, lol!

I wasn't planning on doing anything on my actual birthday, but Lea and Teresa convinced me to go out for drinks, and I'm glad I did :)  It was a nice couple of hours chit chatting.

Thanks to everyone who made me feel special!!!

So many moments to update....

I can't beleive it's been a month since I blogged.  Anything fun on the computer definitely takes a back seat this time of year, as I try to be super productive during the times I get to work.  We have had a great month, here are a few snippets from October, in no particular order....

Everett loves to walk the dog, lol.
Everett loves when his siblings get home from school, and especially when they will play with him.

A day off of school meant we could finally get to Oak Glen for some apple cider donuts and fresh air :)

Between these two... there's a lot of chaos!  lol.  This is why I get nothing done.
Nutella anyone?

Jolene and Evangeline came out one morning and we went to Oak Glen with the littles.  It was lovely!

Trying to play Trouble with Everett messing up the peices, lol. 

A little afternoon date with Ethan.  It's SO hard …

Siblings Playing Together

I am SO behind in blogging. I have so much to share.  I will probably post a bunch this week and it will all be out of order.

I snapped these pictures of the kids playing in the backyard after school one day.  It warms my heart so much when they all three play together.  They were having fun dragging Everett around on this blanket.  Giggles were heard by all!
