Taniyah's 4th Birthday

Today is Taniyah's 4th Birthday. I decorated her cake in her favorite color - PINK!

She's growing up so fast. She's very smart and can't wait to start school.

She made a wish and blew out her candles - over and over and over again.....silly Daddy!!

Then she opened her presents. She got a dance mat from Amah and Poppa, Princess coloring pages and Rose Petal cottage stuff from us. She loved all of it!

13th Anniversary Weekend Getaway

This year we celebrated our 13th anniversary.

My Mom and Poppa were here and they agreed to watch the kids for a few days while we had a small getaway.

We went and stayed at the Bahia Resort in Mission Bay We had a beach front room that opened onto a private beach.

They have a pool with seals that have been rescued and rehabed

We went to Mission Beach and played glow golf and since there wasn't anyone else playing we took some photo ops

We went on the big roller coaster that's been there since 1925
The weather was beautiful

Found this cool shack thing on the jetty

USS Mobile Bay Christmas Party

For some reason my dear husband does not like to go to his work Christmas parties. Something about spending months on end with them being plenty for him. A few weeks ago though he made the mistake of showing me the ship's schedule and it had the party on it. So I convinced him to buy tickets since it will be our last year there and we haven't been to one in several years. So we got all dressed up and headed out.



We got there and met up with some friends

Danced the night away

And even if he's already spent time with them I think he still has fun with at least some of them.

He loves the water

And I guess he decided that since no one would take him to the pool for a swim he would take himself
