Life Lately

The beginning of January I celebrated my 38th birthday and woke up to some fun gifts from the family

But my favorites were the sweet cards my girls made me.  Kayla's was sarcastic and funny, just like her,

While Brooklyn's was sweet and thoughtful just like her.

On the back she had taped a $20 bill and wrote that "I thought we could buy matching clothes!"
If that's not the sweetest thing ever.  I gave her back her $20 and told her we could look for some but that mommy would pay for it.

Later that morning hubby and I left for a little overnight getaway that included some wine tasting and a delicious sushi dinner.   I had a great time and enjoyed my birthday so much!

How pretty was this view from our room!

We ended my birthday with some chocolate cake, wine and a pretty view of the full moon together.

 For Christmas the girls received these Empower posters from my sister in law and I loved seeing the words they chose to describe themselves!!

Kayla chose to make her poster exactly like the directions stated with the strips separating the colors in each section

while Brooklyn did it her own way because she liked it better that way!  I love watching the girls craft and seeing how they choose to make things because it shows so much into their personalities.

It has not felt much like Winter at all here in Southern California and I've been kinda bummed about it but we actually had two days with rain a bit ago and the girls were pumped to use their umbrellas.

Since we haven't received rain in what feels like atleast a year or so everything flooded pretty quick.

including our yard on both sides of the house

 I got to unclog the drain while their was a break in the rain.

While we were at Kayla's orthodontist appointment this month we got to enjoy some wildlife up close.  Don't worry we were inside while they roamed around.  Aren't they the cutest though?  The girls loved seeing them!

The regular season of soccer might be over this weekend and now Brooklyn is sad that she will not be playing select and I'm gonna miss watching them both compete with each other while at practice.   Kayla was playing goalie for Brooklyn's team at her practice and Brooklyn was scoring lots of goals on her big sister.  They were having such a great time!

Well that's what we've been up to so far.  This month has been pretty chill except for soccer practices and games but its been really nice after the busyness of the holidays!
