Thanksgiving 2015

Family, Holidays No Comments

Our 1st Thanksgiving on the Ranch. What an amazing year it has been. It seems to be that all our years are amazing, but this one was unpredictable & off the charts…amazing.

It’s probably not smart to make a list of all the things I am thankful for, because it’s inevitable that I will forget {many} things/people that I am thankful for. I will attempt a little ‘thankful list’ for 2015 and put the disclaimer out there now: this isn’t everything! Just a snip-it as I won’t have enough time to type everything (and really do it justice).

(1) I can’t even express how thankful I am to be married to this guy. We celebrated our 12th anniversary back in Oct and I feel JUST as smiley about him now – as I did in the picture above (taken 16+ years ago, obviously when we were MUCH younger!). We don’t seem to get many pictures together these days (note to self: try to snap more pictures of ‘just the two of you’ – you will treasure them later) but that doesn’t mean I love him any less.  I could make this entire post all about him & all the reasons he is the best, but I am sure you would rather see more pictures than a LONG list of words.

Happy 70th Birthday, Dad!

This was a video that, my sister, Meg and Wayne Brubaker (from San Diego Video & Film) made for Dad’s 60th Birthday Party.

Here is Wayne’s outtake that was on the DVD:


Fall (2015) Fun

The Fall Season is here, although most of the time it doesn’t feel like ‘Fall’ in San Diego. I have gotten used to it over the years: 80-88 degrees during the day in November is just….’normal

Right after we got back from our weekend in Agua Caliente, we took the kids to Knott’s Berry Farm. Most of you already know about AJ & the roller coaster video (also posted below for your continued enjoyment). That one, 53 second video, made the entire (long) day worth it. There were WAY too many people in the park and the boys didn’t get to do much. But the one roller coaster they did – was Epic 😀

Here are a few pictures from that day.
