When in Rome...

You Belong in Rome
You're a big city soul with a small town heart
Which is why you're attracted to the romance of Rome
Strolling down picture perfect streets, cappuccino in hand
And gorgeous Italian people - could life get any better?

Miss Giggles.

So here is one of the many videos I've been trying to post. This is our friend Julie getting some giggles and squeals out of Elizabeth over thanksgiving. The object of the excitement is her much beloved dog Hugo. From what I hear she was laughing more than squealing while I was in the loo before whipping out the camera and catching the end of her delirium.

Thanksgiving, Good Living.

You know life's good when you're spending Thanksgiving at the beach. This year we decided to go down to San Diego and visit Rob's dad and sisters for the holiday luckily all his sisters decided to as well!
We had so much fun...let's see. We got to see the Rowleys (no picture, tear) in Vegas on our way out. Then Rob's Aunt and Uncle were kind enough to have us stay over in Corona to visit with them and Rob's Grandparents, Keith and Sally. It was so amazing to see them still trucking along, at 94, and loving every minute of it. Keith drove us, yep drove us to lunch, and I never once felt like I was going to die. That's impressive. :) We then went out to see Roy and Jenna. Two of the sweetest people we know. Rob lived with them his senior year of high school and they've been great family friends before that and since. We had a blast visiting other friends from Robbie's former life in the Palisades. After spending a couple days there we went through the oc to visit Russell, Julie and Sadie (sooo fun!) and Rob's good friends Josh and his wife heather. They were so sweet, cooked us a great meal and let us stay...we love those guys.

Lastly we ended up at the final destination in SD...where katie cooked us a stellar thankgsiving, mindy and dan got everyone sick (we love you guys anyway :), Mya schooled me in the ways of modern technology, Owie woke us up every morning proclaiming at the top of his lungs, "Owie go peepee!" pretty much everyone had me laughing all weekend, and I became master to the extreme of all things Rock Band. Thanks Bob and family for showing us a good time.

The last day we were there the weather finally cleared up and we took baby to the beach for the very first time...

Mya and Abby...it wasn't exactly the best swim day but they braved the cold. As did Hannah, Ben, and Nate when Hannah accidentally dropped him in the water. :)

Cutest Baby Ever.

Awww...that hat is huge.

We've got spirit, yes we do!

BYU Alumni vs. Newbies Match.
I've done many a post parading Baby's BYU enthusiasm but this one just takes the cake. I mean come on...could she be any more adorable? I submit that she cannot.
(BTW-Baby is still mesmerized by the camera and stops smiling as soon as she sees it. And yes, I call her Baby...but to you she is Etta, "cause no one puts Baby in a corner.")

So my computer once again has been having issues of the worst kind which I'm afraid just might ruin me on Macs forever. That drama put aside I'm sure I could've found a way but I've been a totally and complete slacker. So here I am playing some major catch up as I re-enter the blogging world.

For Halloween Robbie and I stopped by our ward party, celebrated Robbie's bday, carved pumpkins and went over to the Parkinson's for fun and games. We being the debbie downers we are never dressed up. We did however borrow our neighbors costume from last year for Elizabeth. Needless to say it was hilarious. I love this girl.

Can't find the pictures of our pumpkins!! Sad day, maybe they'll pop up somewhere.
Till tomorrow...
