A New Tradition

As 2011 is coming to a close, I thought a fun way to remember the year would be to share some of our favorite memories. We each wrote down a bunch of our most special recollections on little pieces of paper and put them in a bowl. Then we took turns pulling them out and smiling about the past year. So remember to not sweat the small stuff, cherish those you love, and remember to enjoy the little things in life-one day you may look back and realize they were the big things.

It is always fun to reminisce about fun times and fond memories we have had throughout the year! May your 2012 be full of many more happy times 🙂

Working in Santa Ynez

Today the whole gang worked long and hard to complete an entire DogWatch installation in one day. The property was on a beautiful ranch and they had tons of animals including 23 horses, 11 dogs, chickens, goats, and cows!

The horses were so interested in what we were doing

and they tried eating the green “grass” off the truck

Happy Quarter of a Century To Me!

It started with a yummy breakfast!

And I got pretty flowers!

Then we took the dogs to the park

We had a delicious picnic lunch!

Tanda surprised me with new fuzzy socks and cute turtle earrings!

Lasagna and parmesan rolls were on the menu for dinner

Followed by oreo cheesecake cupcakes

And Phase 10 (which I won!)

Thank you everyone for making my birthday super special, I love you guys!
