Today, the cars 4 charity group came and hauled away the Honda. We have had this car our whole marriage and Jakes brother Zack had it before us. The car holds oodles of memories for the family. It has been hanging out in the driveway with 275K miles on it since we moved here desperately needing a new engine that costs more than the car is worth. It was good to us for many years, but it is kind of nice to have some driveway space back. Guess this will be the new spot for Jonah to learn to ride his bike! We are now a one car family....i should by a chauffeur hat!

Alright ladies who read my blog (yes, all of you - the more the merrier). I need you to reply to this post via the comment section or through my email)
I will be in Utah the weekend of the opening of the New Moon movie.
I am planning on renting a movie theater at Hollywood Connection in West Valley on Saturday November 21st at 10am for all us ladies to see New Moon. The cost of the tickets is $6 per person. We will be the only ones in the whole theatre when it opens (they are opening earlier just for us) so we can make as much noise as we want and we will have complete control over the snack bar (of course you still have to pay for your own snacks...or sneak them in your big trendy purses....but i didnt tell you that).
I need to know how many of you will be able to/are interested in making it. I know it is still 3 months away but that means plenty of time to plan, get babysitters, and commit! I would like to get all info for it within the next few weeks so i can finalize the reservation so please get back to me.
You are more than welcome to bring other family, friends, and people i dont know. If you bring a man, they have to be able to handle all the estrogen and Edward/Jacob wooing without any snide comments.....basically we dont want any men there! And please dont bring your children (unless you have a wee baby who is still sucking from your breast and needs to be with you).
I am very excited about this and hope you are too. Pass the word along and get back to me!

It was a blast visiting grannie and grandpa this weekend.... we spent an afternoon at the beach, made spaghetti pictures, did some hanging out at the park, watched tobin love listening to grannie play the piano, the girls got pedi's, jake and i did a 3 mile run together (for thr first time in our marraige) and i realized that my baby girl looks more like her aunts than me. schmeh. But it was a great weekend (despite the traffic we had to endure to get there). We were so happy to be able to see allison and kids and were thrilled that aunt anna stopped by for a surprise weekend visit too!
We were lucky to have Oma and Opa spend a weekend with us recently. Jonah was thrilled to see his grandparents again and it was a great visit. My favorite part (besides the 4 hour shopping spree mom and i went on) was the visit to Muir woods. It was beautiful and the kids had a blast walking through this awesome Forest. Tobin just ran and ran and ran. Jonahs loved that he could actually stand in some of the trees and climb in some of the tree trunks. It was like his own little treehouse. Awesome!
