Grandpa turns 82!

My grandfather turned 82 this week and Jared, JR and I all headed out to Homedale along with my parent's and sister this Sunday to celebrate. We practiced singing 'Happy Birthday' with JR before we went out and he did a pretty good job. But then when we got out there, oh boy did he sing it with gusto! It was so cute but of course none of us was able to get it on video. Typical.

Anywho, we did awesome stuff between when we could get Grandpa off the dance floor (he just loves shufflin' to the 'Party Rock' song) like take pictures of our webbed toes.
Me and Grandpa...

Me, Grandpa, Mercedes...

Then Grandpa and I had a little photo op. All the Homedale paparazzi were dying to get a shot of us together. We stayed separate on the red carpet but did pose for one picture once inside the VIP lounge.

All I have to say is that it was a pretty wild celebration, wish you all could have been there. Party of the century pretty much.

Happy Birthday Grandpa!

Slices of Life: Christmas

Christmas was a little different this year. Jared had to work on Christmas day, my brother and sister-in-law were out of town and our typical routine and activities didn't happen as usual. So here are just a couple of "slices" of our Christmas this year rather then a lengthy blog post.
If JR looks really upset in some of these pictures it's because he was. His schedule was totally off and we had to wake him up to do presents. It was kind of comical actually.
