Breakfast with friends and Santa!

Earlier this month, I was able to host a breakfast with some of the great girls I work with! We had alot of fun. We enjoyed a great breakfast, some nice adult conversations, a game of dirty Santa, and a visit from Santa! The kids had alot of fun playing too. They definitely weren't to sure what to think of Santa though! Santa's Big arrival!
Presents for the kids!

Our family! In case you weren't sure this is Calvin and Mya was terrified. We thought she didn't know it was him but later on she kept calling all the Santa Clause's Daddy so I guess she was smarter that we thought!

The Girls!

Disney on Ice

Last night we went to the Disney on Ice show at Conseco Fieldhouse. The kids had such a great time! They were absolutely mezmerized. Mya is really in to Donald for some reason right now so she walks around saying"Donald....Donald....Donald." She also loves the "mouse." Ayden really enjoyed it all but got especially excited when Buzz and Woody came out. He said his favorite part was when Goofy got stuck coming down the chimney. Calvin and I had a good time too. We especially enjoyed watching the kids faces!

Birthday Fun

This was my 30th birthday and Calvin went above and beyond to make sure I had a birthday to remember! 3 of my friends showed up at my house at 8am on October 30. They let me know that we were heading to Chicago compliments of my hubby! Then shortly after that he arrived home with 30 orange roses with my spending money attached to them:) Here are some of our pics from our trip.
We were exhausted and delirious by this point. We sure had some good laughs though!

St. Augustine, FL

Calvin and I just got back from a little getaway. We hadn't been away from the kids since before Mya was born. We went to St. Augustine, FL. We didn't know much about it other than there was a beach there, it was the oldest city, and we got cheap tickets....which was a good start for us. We had a really good time. My parents came and stayed with the kids so we didn't have to worry about them but I did call home every day. These are a few of our highlights. We would have a few more but our camera wasn't cooperating at the beginning of the trip. As you will see, we perfected the self portrait since we were alone. HA! The Old Light House (taken from a boat ride around the city)
A dolphin, this was as good as I could get.

Some of the pretty old buildings

There 83 million dollar bridge project (that is enought to make you sick)

The old jail, built in the 1800's (pretty from the outside but still a jail inside)

Calvin always makes a matter where he goes
