I think I have something called a blog....

Perhaps a good resolution would be to update my blog at least once a month? Or even look at my friends blogs....come on me. sheesh.
I guess I'll start with my mum's wedding in August. Yeah...she got re-married to a real nice fireman named Russ. They got married in the Redlands temple in California. A dear friend Kristin Fuller took my mum's pictures if you'd like to see a few

the new family all together...well minus one of Russ' kiddos. Yep..I have 4 new halfers. We'll just say Christmas was different this year.

Now onto SEPTEMBER....
All I have to say about it is National Talk like a Pirate Day is the best & you all better be at the party next year so help me.
We had a flipping pinata....& if you don't come I'll go Barbosa on you.

The month of my birth...OCTOBER.
I had a birthday. Bought myself some good stuff & Michael being the gem he is wrapped it for me.
Clinton Kelly (from What Not To Wear. ) Tweeted to me. Pretty much the BEST birthday present.

& I got a cookie dough ice cream cake. Help me.

We also got to go to the wonderful Cornbelly's maze. We went with, who my sister now named the 'Log's' aka La Cognatas. It was cold but fun. I've never before been to a corn maze & now that I live literally right behind one I though I should try it out.

Of course there was pumpkin carving.

And some costumes perhaps....

With one of my favorite holiday's. Thanksgiving. Why? You may ask....well it's because of the food. Yes it's dynamite. I love it all. Bring it on. Thanksgiving was held here...

In freezing cold, but beautiful Bear Lake. Oh & that was just one of the 3 houses we got. Yeah...we're that pimp.

So December was an interesting month. I lost my dear Grandpa Daniel. It was rough. It was the first real loss I've ever experienced. So I flew down on a stand-by ticket that my dove of a friend Becc a got me & we had a service on the beach in San Clemente, Ca. It was a beautiful sunny day & he would have loved it. We poured his ashes off the pier. The same pier the he would take me as a kid to feed the pigeons & walk up & down to see who caught what & look out his binoculars to see if we could see Catalina Island. Then we went to his favorite restaurant in Dana Point that over looked the harbor & had a wonderful lunch. I bawled like a baby. He fought in WW2 & was a lawyer. Had 6 kids, loved his liquor & his family. He helped me buy my first car & made me laugh. Usually he was making fun of me...but still. He taught me to laugh at myself.

They were so hot on their wedding day.

So after I finally made it back home. Worked 2 days. We packed the car & drove down for Christmas. It was good. We got together with my dad's side of the family & my mum's side of the family. Oh and my soon to be new Aunt Melinda & my Uncle Herb gave us 2 lotto tickets & we won $20 bucks. WOOT!! Christmas in SoCal is the BEST!

Now onto my mum's side......

Mike getting his very first Chiropractic adjustment from my Uncle Paul.

Well it really has been a good few months. And I REALLY am going to be better at doing this blog this year or I'm calling it quits. Also I'm going to look at all of your blogs too. Sorry friends. I am still here. Really. I am. And I love you all. Hope you had a fantastic New Year. Here is a picture from the party I went to. It was pretty fun. even if I felt too old to be there.

Have a dynamite 2010 everyone.
