Jessie Joy's 9th Birthday

Our little black beauty turns 9 today!  Jessie is a gem!  She's adventurous, kind as can be, thoughtful, creative and funny!  She also loves her sleep!  Only on her birthday does she jump out of bed with a smile on her face, ready to start the day!  The tradition in our family is to wake up first thing to presents, coffee and cinnamon rolls.  Jessie enjoyed opening her gifts from family!  Then we got ready for the party.  Family and friends joined us to celebrate little miss sweet, smart, athletic, strong (willed) and beautiful Jessie!  The day was filled with joy!

80's Night

Culture Club, Billy Idol, Tears For Fears and Missing Persons!  It doesn't get much better than that!  We had the best time at the i Heart Radio 80's concert at the Forum.  Dinner at Il Fornaio was great too!  Love you hunny!


Dinner With Trista

I've known and loved her since 7th grade.  2nd Street is our go-to meeting spot for dinner and drinks.


This year's forecast for snow in Mammoth was good.  Josette was ready to go!  The 3 little ones took a lesson then hit the slopes.  Jeff helped each one with their skill and technique.  I enjoyed seeing their smiles as they slide down the mountain concentrating on their path.  This year we went with Ginny & Gene and the Brusseau's.  We stayed at Mountain Back and also fit in a day of sledding and snowman making.  Valentine's Day was fun with special treats for the kids and dinner in Convict Lake.  Good times with family and friends!
