new addition....

we've finally done it! We have added a new member to our ever growing family! ......since we are staying put for a while we decided to get a dog! She is a yellow lab, about 2 years old and soooooo sweet! Her name is Lola. We have had her for 5 days and she hasn't barked once! she is very well behaved! We love her. especially Colby! he has been wanting a dog for a long time. Jason is pretty happy , too. ;) Here are a few pics....this is the first day as we were bringing her home.

We hope she will be a perfect fit for this family! Kitty......she's not to thrilled.

Here are a few more pics from San Diego.

merry merry and happy happy new year!

HOLY HOLIDAYS AND TRAVEL! As you all know, we were in the States for a month and on a cruise before that! We are home now, after almost 2 months. It has been a whirlwind year and a half. We are taking a short hiatus...At least until March....we hope. We all have the travel bug around here, so it may be difficult for us to stay put for 3 months. but we will try.
Anyway, the first leg our *tour de states* took us to Virginia on a

It was crazy! . I traveled with Grumps and the boys. Jason had to stay behind for a week because he had to work. We met up with a friend from right here in Rota and she was gracious enough to let us all stay at her place for the night! She is a saint.
While in VA we went to a children's museum
and a Winter Wonderland!

The next day we flew out to San Diego!!!! We arrived and were exhausted. it took us a few days to aclimate. After we rested we
went to all the SoCal HOT SPOTS!! Sea World, Knott's Berry Farm, Lego Land,

The Children's Museum!!!

we had a blast and spent time with fam and friends! We drove to Vegas on Christmas Day to see my Momma

and Todd and Craig and Jeni and Ariel!

Back In San Diego we met up with my dear BFC and some other San Diego Friends!
we all spent quality time together. It was a lovely visit! I miss them all. It was great to be there with all our family. Hope your Hiolidays were grand and you all are having a great new year.

more soon.
