Disneyland here we come!!!! We're headed off for a much needed family vacation to Disneyland. It worked out that its my dad's 60th birthday on Halloween so he "volunteered" to take us for his birthday present! (and of course there will be some lovely home-made birthday cards as well :) I haven't been in about 14 years...I think I'm the most excited out of everyone.

1) We visited my mom and dad this past weekend (well my kids did) and my mother took it upon herself to teach her youngest grandchild (16 months old :) how to walk...it was either that or she threatened to find baby knee pads. Anyway after a few minutes with her and my cousin working on him...he walked! (miracle). Well, I'm happy to say, that we are back home on our good ol' concrete floors, with a mom at the computer and baby....dum..da...dum....... in need of knee pads. So----to all of you star children/early walkers/proud parents out there....WE are holding out for crawling into kindergarten! (sorry mom...let's shoot for christmas)
2) Favorite Day of the week??? Mine is TUESDAY...also known as "TRASH DAY"!! I love it...there's just something...I don't know..."cleansing" about the day. I love having empty trash cans, both inside and outside, and thought that it was important enough to share, because I like to find those "little" things that can help make the day a bit sunnier.

On another "Fall" note. I have to state, that first and foremost I'm a summer type of gal, this being said, I will admit that last night I looked outside as it was getting dark and realized it was only 6:30pm! Hallelujah!! One of the few things I like about fall/winter is that I can put my kids to bed really early just by saying, "look its dark outside! let's hurry up and get in bed!"...and they fall for it!

I had 3 shoots-that were ALL awesome (if I do say so myself :) Not that I need proof, but thought I'd throw this up for the momma of 3 boys (age 3, 2, and 10mo...that's right...no typo :) Anyway...sending some sunshine her way tonight...thanks for the workout!

So I tell my cousins this story and at the FIRST mention of GRAPEFRUIT, my one cousin yells "grapefruit!!!!????" What is it with your family and grapefruit?? I wasn't quick enough to follow where she was going with grapefruit, so she reminded me about an event that took place at my home over 20 years ago. It involved my father coming home and saying, "I'm thirsty, and I would love a glass of grapefruit juice". So he loaded all the kids up (5 of us + my 3 cousins) in the red truck and drove us over to the Cook's house (they had huge grapefruit trees in their yard-heck everyone had grapefruit trees in Yuma except for us), and told us to start picking. Only after the ENTIRE BED OF THE PICKUP was full, did we head home. (Care to guess what happened next?) Yep, he pulled out the old metal stand juicer (it was a manual one...no electricity involved here and it was brought all the way from Guadalajara) and told us to get to work...then if memory serves me correctly he went upstairs to take a nap.
So my cousins memory connecting one eccentric (borderline OCD) Noble Grapefruit story to another had us totally busting up...but didn't keep me from nibbling away! (I shared this memory with my father, who of course had NO recollection at all.)
