The 2nd Friday of the month the kids go to visit their Dad in California. It means a 2 1/2 hour drive up to Alpine, and then I drive back home. This Friday we put the new DVD player onto the seats before we left. The kids were able to watch their movie with the headphones. It made the trip much more pleasant for all of us.

The kids and I spent all day at home. They played on the Wii and played with Christmas toys, and I relaxed. I had plans for us to go to the park and play, but we just never left. I actually didn't take the photo on the 3rd I took it on the 2nd, but it still works for the day :) The leaves have finally fallen off the trees in the front yard. They do every year about this time and normally the kids love to go take pictures playing in them. For some reason I couldn't get either of them to take a picture.
and Anthony of course :) January 2nd was my 30th Birthday & Anthony's 7th Birthday. Anthony got to pick where we went to dinner with Grandma & Grandpa. He picked Golden Corral. I tried to sway him to a nicer restaurant ... but he held firm. Here he is with his birthday cupcake:
Adam & Sara were still in town with the kids so we loaded up the 4 oldest and headed off to the bowling ally. The kids had a blast but only made it to about the 7th frame. My favorite photo of Ellie. It took some cropping and Lightroom Presets to get this look, but I love it.
