Abby's 3rd Birthday

Today Abby turned 3! Happy Birthday our sweet girl. Happy Birthday to Aunt Abby too. To celebrate our little Abby's birthday (since her party will be in a few weeks combined with Fiona) we went and rode the ponies at Griffith park. We have done this a few times but Abby could only ride the slow pony because she was not 3. So today she got to ride the pony that trots like her big sister. Our dear friend Sally (bridesmaid in our wedding) came from Washington and spent the night with us last night and the day with us today. It was so good to see her and catch up. Here are some Pict's from the day.

My Husband is the Coolest!

Yesterday I mentioned to Tom that I think it might be cool to make the girls two toddler beds into one bunk bed. He said he had been thinking about it for awhile too and the next thing I know he is in the bedroom with his tools making it happen. The girls are loving there new sleeping situation and Fiona climbs up to the top like a champ. We will see how they do in a few minutes when they really do go to sleep in them for the first time. We need the extra space in the room because my mom got the girls a great dollhouse for Christmas and when our little Ugandan baby comes we will have to fit a crib into the room. We are still waiting for our phone call letting us know who our little one is- but we should know in the next month or so! Keep praying. Here are some pictures of Tom putting the beds together and the finished product! I also put a picture of the beds next to each other so you can see how they used to sleep.

The Dodger Float- 50 years in LA Celebration!

Here are pictures of the Dodger float. I can hardly wait for the season to begin. I am so excited that Joe Torre is our manager. Every time I see someone with a Yankee hat on I giggle inside and thank them for the coach. WOW! Let's go Dodgers!

Rose Parade Float Viewing

I think I have found a new family tradition (well at least while in Cali). I was more motivated to go this year because I had to see the Dodger float up close! Let's Go Dodgers- 2008!!! My mom and I took the girls on the 2ND and went and viewed the Rose Parade floats. They let you get pretty close to them and some of them even operate them for you. It is really cool to see these floats up close. They can't be appreciated on TV. Seeing them up close I really got to see all the detail and hard work that goes into each and every one of these floats. They are an amazing display of all the beautiful things God has made. It is defiantly worth going and taking a look at- you get exercise- it is a lot of walking and you don't have to sleep all night on the street to see them in the parade. Here are a few Pict's.
