• A Quick Trip to Pismo Beach

    Pismo to us is a time to refresh and escape. So we were thrilled when Monday came and we packed up the car and headed to the central coast. We hit some traffic on the way there, so I'm super thankful Myke found this for the girls so they could watch veggie tales on an iPad after their naps in the car. Olivia did not nap, but she was silent and reading while Meghan napped…

After getting the girls dressed and shoes, we gave them a quick snack/lunch and had Olivia get the jackets. It was time…

Even though the girls are only 2 and 1, it’s so fun to share with the little things like baking cookies (Olivia helps and Meghan watches) and movies-yes I have a complete list already. We have talked a lot about how we are going to approach Christmas with the girls. How many presents should we get them? Do we give them practical gifts or fun gifts? Do…
