Oh Christmas Tree

Here is our ever-so lovely Christmas tree. It's kind of fun now to see just how many ornaments we've accumulated over the years. In the first couple of years, all we had were Andy's ornaments (star wars and star trek). But now, we have a lot more normal looking (no offense) ones.

On a random note:
In a recent grocery shopping trip, Clark started striking this pose...and luckily I had the camera. I have no idea where he got this from, but it cracks me up every time.

our day

Every day right before nap time, Clark and I look for his binky, blanket, and monkey. But yesterday, we could not find the binky. Believe me, I looked everywhere for that thing, but with no luck. So I explained to him that he'll just have to go without, cause that's what 'big boys' do. I sang him a few songs and left the room. I was quite pleased with how easily he settled down. About a half hour after he went to bed (or so I thought) I heard his little voice. Much to my shock, he was up and about...hanging out in the bathroom sink...wanting to brush his teeth. I have to admit, I was more amused than upset (hence the picture). Luckily, he did not turn the water on. Needless to say, he did not get a nap.

Later that night, I paid the price for Clark's lack of sleep at Grace's ballet class performance. But he really enjoyed watching his big sister perform. And so did I! I was a proud mama!

thanksgiving weekend

We stayed around town during the thanksgiving holiday (much to our families' dismay) and tried to see some of the sights. Last stop was the Getty Museum. The coolest part of it all is the view (of smoggy LA), and the art is nice to look at to. It sits a top a large hill and in order to get to it you have to park below then take a tram up. We definitely want to go back someday.

Earlier in the day we went to the Hollywood Walk of Fame. The area sure isn't as glamorous as you might think. Right outside of the Kodak Theater there tons of panhandlers dressed up as different characters. We didn't get our pictures taken with them...they kind of scare me.

And last but not least, we shared our thanksgiving table with Chris (a friend from Andy's work) and his mother and girlfriend. This was our third turkey day on our own, and I think it gets better every year. I wish I took a picture of the bird, it was beautiful and most delicious.
