Andrew's Zamboni Ride

 This year Steve has taken on a huge volunteer position at the YMCA. He has spent countless hours arranging many fun events with the organization. As a thank you for his volunteer time the YMCA arranged for Andrew have Zamboni ride at the Ducks game last night.

Before the night got started Andrew and Steve has a lot of fun playing at the hockey clinic that was set-up in the parking lot of the Honda Center.

Enjoy the pictures of Andrew having the opportunity of a lifetime getting to ride on the ice before the game


Security is super tight and this was the closest they would let Steve get to the ice to film Andrew.

Truvia Honestly Sweet Girlfriend Meet-up

 Truvia was so sweet to ask me to host a girlfriend meet-up at Starbucks. I picked two of my favorite girlfriends and we set-out on a rainy day to enjoy coffee, breakfast and our company.
 We were originally going to only go for a quick cup of coffee, but after we got gabbing we sat there for almost three hours!! We enjoyed the Truvia in our coffee. Starbucks was so nice and gave us different samples of their coffee to sample the Truvia in.
 One of my best friends Jackie loves her Truvia so much she made a cute little hat to wear out of it.
When we were done we got an opportunity to share it with the Starbucks brewistas and left them a nice box as a thank you for being such great hosts.

Would you like a free sample of Truvia? Visit to get your free sample!

Thank you Truvia for providing my girlfriends and I a wonderful morning at Starbucks with Truvia!

Thank You Disneyland!

This past weekend we were so honored to have been invited to attend the #Disneylandmoms Blogger event. We had the opportunity to see the first day Disneyland began celebrating the holiday for the season.

The park was decorated so beautifully and It's a small world was tranformed into a holiday wonderland.

Andrew and Ella have never had an opportunity to enjoy Disneyland like this and they were so grateful for their experience.

 Love, Ella
Love, Andrew

Disneyland is wanting to help families create holiday memories. They have created a memory that my family will cherish near and dear to our hearts forever.

We will continue to wish upon this star for our next return to Disneyland!

Thank you Disneyland!

Fun Thanksgiving Preschool Songs

Thanksgiving is less than two weeks away. Now is a great time to start singing some fun Thanksgiving songs with your children. Here are a couple of my favorites:

Mr. Turkey

I have a turkey, big and fat.

(Make a fist with one hand-thumb Out for turkey's head)
He spreads his tail and walks like that.
(Attach "tail" by spreading Out fingers of other hand and join together)
His daily corn he would not miss.
(Poke with thumb at floor)
And when he talks, it sounds like this:
Gobble Gobble Gobble

Did you ever see a Turkey?
sing to the tune: "Did you ever see a Lassie"

Did you ever see a turkey a turkey a turkey
Did you ever see a turkey go this way and that
Go this way and that way and this way and that way
Did you ever see a turkey go this way and that?

Hello Mr. Turkey
sing to the tune: "If You're Happy and You Know It"

Hello, Mr. Turkey how are you?
Hello, Mr. Turkey, how are you?
His feet go wobble, wobble
And his head goes Gobble, Gobble.
Hello, Mr. Turkey, how are you?

Happy Birthday Papa!

Tonight we got to enjoy a fun night at Cosmo's celebrating Steve's Dads Birthday. We have always loved the feel that this local Italian restaurant gives us. The food is delicious and the staff is great! 
 Our little caveman Tyler always makes dinner so enjoyable with his display of lovely table manners.
(It's the Italian in him...what can I say?)
 Andrew spent most of the evening sticking spoons on his nose.
And we are so excited about his new smile.

He think he looks cool by tucking in his lower lip when he smiles. Let him know...what do you think of his new smile?
