doTERRA Christmas Party

IMG_1060

Normally, I wouldn’t be going to the great, huge doTERRA Employee Christmas Party, but because my cute son works there, AND he isn’t embarrassed to hang out with his mom–I got to go!!

The food was incredible, and sincerely, I could have gotten about a boat load of the Spinach Artichoke Dip–hiding under the chips. It was wonderful and I swear, I’m going to learn how to make that stuff. Yummo.

The entertainment was a fabulous guy group called GenTri. Yeah, look them up. All the pictures I took of them were blurry because…well because I take lame pictures sometimes when I’m eating Spinach Artichoke Dip. Fact.

The owners gave away presents for about an hour and then they said, “Your dessert is under your seats.” White chocolate popcorn, a gourmet chocolate toffee cookie, and a lemon bar. Dang. Dang. Dang.

It’s been a lonnnnng time since I’ve been to a company Christmas party. It was perfect. And when we came back out to the car about 6 inches of snow had fallen. Magical.

Thanks Rhenny boy.

I love you.

Avatar Aang~ All Grown Up

004

Positively the best costume ever. Yesiree, now that cute little Avatar Aang is grown up and only seen in flashbacks and visions in the new series Legend of Korra, it only seemed fitting that The Bald Guy should pay just a bit of tribute to one of our favorite guys.

ang

I mean, he has the bald head for it, and the beard…well, he’s been working on that for awhile now.

Aang

It turned out pretty darn perfect–if I do say so myself.  And perfect enough to win First Place in the costume contest at Ebay.

Yeah…that’s dang good.

Good match, wouldn’t you say?

062

After all, a guy’s gotta have the right “get up” if he’s gonna save the world.

Heh, heh, heh.

:]

PS~ If you want details on the costume construction…stay tuned.

Leaf Magic

012

When you have an over achieving willow tree, like we do, you get very used to seeing these leaves on the ground, on the driveway, in the grass, on your car, in your hair. Trust me they are all over the place.

004

But when you also have an over achieving boy, who makes a game out of raking the darn things up…

015

he makes sure that you can see the lawn again, even if it’s only for about 15 minutes. Dang, silly, weeping tree.

013

But this boy doesn’t mind, because he can make a train load of leaves disappear in minutes…

like magic.

018

Probably because he’s part elf.

A Teeny Tiny Football Day

024 - Copy

Our house was waaaay up from the beach so when I watched these guys doing that which they always do–throwing a football–they were so far away that I could barely see who was who. After zooming in and cropping, this is what we get…that is until the Bald Kid went behind the cliff and I couldn’t see him anymore.

Maybe if you scroll through fast, it will look like a flip book or something.

025 - Copy

No matter where we go,

026 - Copy

or how long they’ve been apart…

027 - Copy

some things…

030 - Copy

between these boys…

  028 - Copy

thankfully…

029 - Copy

never…

031 - Copy

ever…

033 - Copy

change.

Oh, how I love them.

Matryoshka Festival

059

When that boy of mine came home from Siberia–he had a special surprise for each and every one of us.

047

All of them hand picked and chosen…

054

for whichever big soul

037

or little soul

034

it would live with forever and ever.

058

Each one he picked, is as unique and beautiful, inside and out…

024

as the loved one he chose it for.

042

And a lovely reflection of his own kind heart.

Thank you a million times my sweet boy.
