A lil bit of nature nearby

There is a park nearby our house, which I love because it is so peaceful. Sure there are the days where little o really needs to let off some steam with other kids within a big playground with slides and swings and such. But more often lately, I find it refreshing to just let her run in the grass and enjoy listening to the birds and collecting the leaves (eating them-err not so much...) Today we did some serious bird watching!

We took little o to the huntington library gardens the other day. Here she is sitting in the kids garden at a kid size table. She really enjoyed the people watching more than anything else...

Holiday Treats

I made lots of special treats for little o's teachers to thank them for all their hard work they do each day while they take care of her! Peppermint Bark, Chocolate chip cookies, and Almond Balls.

December visits

We had visits from Nana and Grandma and Poppa this month!
We thought it would be fun to go to the zoo when Grandma was here. You didnt Love it-but you did like brushing the nice goats hair.

You definately did not appreciate the carousel. (I had a feeling the 3.5 minute long ride would be way too long) You got scared after 30 seconds and I held you the rest of the ride...I think grandma had fun though....
You enjoyed the dinner at Ocean Ave Seafood!

 Next, was Nana Kathy's visit. We took a drive over to point Dume. It was such a beautiful sunny, winter day. We saw pelicans fly by and you wanted to jump into the cold ocean! But Nana saved you and got her feet wet instead!

We also took you to the park-it was so sweet watching you and your Nana holding hands!

Poppa was the next one to visit. It was his birthday! We all went to Uncle Pete's house to celebrate. You loved collecting all of the forks on the plate.
