Santa's coming!! WHOO!!!

Santa was hitting the streets tonight with the Folsom Police and Fire to say hi to the kids and collect toys and canned food. It was really fun-Gabrielle loved it, but Cal was scared of the sirens. You can't really tell in the picture, but Gabrielle had these gloves on that clip together when you're not wearing them so they don't get separated-she did not want them unclipped so it was like she had handcuffs on the whole night. I was so cold and it's times like these that I don't know how I ever lived in cold weather, or how I ever lived in the Arizona heat for that matter. If I had to choose, I think I would rather deal with the cold-as long as I never had to drive in the snow.

Little black shorts

Reading my friend's blog, I was inspired to start writing and not just post pictures. So here I am..writing or typing. Things are good-we're excited for Christmas-95% of my shopping is done-yes. I'm feeling good because I'm finally getting the rest of my baby weight off-ok technically Cal is not a baby anymore, but what's that one saying? 9 months to put it on, double that to take it off. Right? yeah that sounds right-so I'm right on track. Gabrielle is still obsessed with clothes. I went out the other night and Gabrielle was in the bath when I left so I didn't see her. All she wanted from Luke was to know what I was wearing. When Aunt Amy was here a few weeks ago, we were heading to Old town Folsom to walk around-when she saw what Amy had chosen to wear (Sweat short things and a t-shirt) she couldn't contain her disgust, "is that what you're wearing?" Amy thought better of the outfit and decided to change-Gabrielle was relieved. She is very excited about a new way to wear her clothes which I introduced to her over Thanksgiving down at my sister's house. She put on her little black shorts (originally intended to be worn with her leotard at gymnastics) put on a shirt, and was ready to rock the outfit downstairs for all the relatives to see when much to her dismay, the shirt was longer than the shorts. Mid meltdown I showed her this awesome thing-tucking in the front of your shirt-not the back (circa 1989). All was well-the shorts could be seen! So now she does it even when the shirt isn't too long. I'll post some pics illustrating this sweet fashion statement. This whole clothing situation gives me the most laughs and the most breakdowns-it creates an array of problems. ok off to pick her up from preschool I'll add more later!
