The beach!

While in Cali we visited the nearby beach we were staying at. The girls loved to run from the waves, throw rocks & sticks in the ocean, and play in the sand. It was a chilly day, but the sun was out in full force. CJ didn't want much to do with the ocean. He was nervous getting too close and preferred to climb the rocks and watch the train when it came by. Hopefully we can go back sometime and CJ won't be so scared. I love the beach!!

Cali trip

The end of December and over New Year's we flew down to California for a wedding. The kids had so much fun and are still talking about the trip. I'll post a little about the trip but first here is a pic of our fam in front of the San Diego Temple. The girls were in awe of the beautiful building and though it looked just like a castle!

Valentine's deco

I am always wanting to change my mantle decorations according to the holiday. I loved my Christmas decorations and was missing them during January so I decided to fancy it up a little with Valentine's decorations. I got a lot of inspiration and cute ideas from other blogs and most of the ideas I can't remember where I found them. I'll try to update as I remember.

Valentine's subway art found here.
Lolly tutorial found here.
Felt rose wreath directions here.

So this is by far the soonest we have had a room ready for a new baby. I think with Little A we just happened to put up her crib the day before she was born. With a few changes here and there it looks like a new room. I'm loving how it all looks. Now I'm even more ready for baby! :)
