Where do I begin....

On our way to the show
DJ Lance Rock

Omigoodness, where do I begin!  So since the last time I was in here, we went to Yo Gabba Gabba LIVE!, the salmon fish hatchery,
went to SmexyLIVE @ The Boardwalk (Colton and Adam's band), had Thanksgiving twice, and put up the Christmas tree.  I just can't seem to unpack the schedule.  Any how, once again I'm lacking pics of my projects (shame on you M).  But I figured the event pics and video of the boys should suffice for right now.
Trav sportin' DJ Lance glasses.  And yes
Lightning McQueen came along for
the show.

2 apples

So I went to my first quilt faire last Saturday.  I know, I can't believe it was my first, but it was and it was (word-of-the-month).....FANTABULOUS!!!!!  I forgot the camera (gasp), so sorry no pics, but it was so inspiring.  In fact I came home and have sewn and completed 2 blankets and am finishing up a third.  I got some really cute and whimsical fabric to make new blankies for the kiddos and a great book on fun tips, that I can't wait to try.  But I think the most memorable thing was when one of the ladies looked at R&R and genuinely admiring them asked, "Are they twins?"  I almost LOL'd, literally.  And not cause it was just a crazy question and because I had to fight back the "are you serious?" face.  But my kids, not yet having learned how to suppress that expression, simultaneously, gave her the face.  Yes, they looked at her with those blanks stares for a good 3 or 4 seconds, and then looked at me, as if to say, "Is she serious, right now?"  I politely smiled and said, "No they're just really close in age."  And as we walked away I chuckled as I thought, "Well I guess the apples don't fall far from the tree.  Geez, I'm in for it."  Gosh, I wish I had my camera.  Well back to the sewing machine. Like Tigger says, "T.T.F.N.=TaTaForNow."

She's here!!!!!

So on November 3, 2010, my second oldest sister had her first baby!  Welcoming Rayne Tomia Evans..... Ta Da!

7lbs.6oz. 19in.

Isn't she adorable?  I need to some how get a pic of my sister when she was born, cause she looks just like her.  And we are completely happy that the baby is doing well and mama is fine too.  I act like this child is mine, but I just can't wait to show off her pics.  (And yes, in true filipino fashion, my oldest sister and I were pa-pa-paparazzi)

We made it!!!!

Yaaaaaaayyyy we made it through Halloween!  I <3 Halloween.  I decided this long ago when halloween meant that I could get away with clubbing all weekend in practically my underwear (sadly I wish I was joking when I say this, but its true.). But now 2 kids in, halloween is definitely different and all the more my fave.  

So although Trav and I didn't dress up, R&R were adorable.  R#1 was a circus master and R#2 was a lion.  Although Raymond didn't want to wear his top hat, the costume turned out pretty good.  And Rylie got to wear make up for the first time....ooooooooooooo. 

They had soooo much fun!  As you can see we let Raymond walk, like a big boy and Rylie was carried in the bjorn.  But she got a kick out of all the kids, even laughing at the skeleton decorations.  

This week we also went to the pumpkin patch.  

This week was soooo festive.  I'm actually a little tired and the holiday season has just begun. (Sigh)
