Beach Day in January

We had a wonderful morning at the beach today.  Chad got some surfing in, then we took the boys for haircuts and spent the afternoon having a pizza picnic at the tidepools (more photos on that to come!).  It was such a wonderful day spent together and by 7:30 the boys were SO tired and ready for bed.  I still cannot believe it is this warm in January!

Tyler LOVES the beach.  All day, any day.

Tanner has the same love of the beach!

His favorite part is helping his daddy

My boys are the best of friends

2011 Golden Globes

I got the amazing, once in a lifetime, chance to attend the Golden Globes.  I had front row seats to the red carpet, then a private party in the Beverly Hills Hilton, and then a private viewing area to watch the stars head to the parties, get autographs and photos, etc.  It was SO fun and the energy there was incredible.  I have a lot of photos but here are some of my favorites!!

A New Year

These last few days have been filled with cleaning and purging.  Out with the old and in with the new.  We had a wonderful trip to Oregon and spent lots of precious time with family and friends (pictures are coming).  Our road trips up and back were fairly uneventful (minus a stand still 2.5 hour delay on the I-5 headed north).  And then we come back to reality.  All our Christmas decorations are put away, bags and bags of clothes, shoes and toys have been donated to Goodwill and slowly but surely, new possessions are finding a home.  

It is a new year.  Time to reflect on the past and look forward to the new.  I have different expectations of myself this year.  I want to be healthier, cultivate an attitude of happiness and optimism, walk with faith, simplify our home and possessions, and continually remember how extremely blessed I am.  
I am ready to embrace the new year with fun and laughter.  I will take the time to fully enjoy the sunlight, and be content to simply reside in the moment.  

After all, what can be better then starting a new year with these two wonderful, precious boys?
