Monarch Butterfly Grove

We got to see the Monarch Butterflies today! There are thousands of them. They look like leaves on the tree. It was a fun nature outing with the family :-)

My new crafty Craft!

Cheryl got me a fancy wreath to hang above our fireplace. I decided to try and copy the look. Pete and I picked Eucalyptus leaves from a nearby field. We visited a friend who had artichokes in their garden and picked up the dried ones. (They were $7 a piece in the store..!). I Dried some lavender from our front yard and added the eucalyptus berries. It was a fun project, but the smell was a little strong for phillip. He was sneezing a lot!

Happy Thanksgiving!

We had a happy HAPPY :-) It was a successful turkey day. We have a fridge and cooler full of leftovers. My 2nd turkey came out without a hitch. (I made a practice turkey last week). Now all we need to do is eat the leftovers :-)

Morro Bay

We went to a fun shell shop and found our special ornament for the year. A sand dollar :-)

Trip to Solvang

This is a fun little Danish community about an hour away from us. We loved the dollar restaurant (Custard's last stand). The Danish bakeries were fun. :-)

Pumpkins at the Avila Barn

We went to pick out some pumpkins, but I ended up getting some ornamental gords instead. Phillip didn't really like wearing his cowboy hat again, or standing on top of the pumpkins. But it made for a cute picture! :-)

Farmer Phillip!

I know this is about a month late, but here is the Birthday Boy picture. He loved the frosting, but was pretty bored with the cake.
Of course he is wearing his newest T-shirt featuring a Bull Dog saying, "Are you talking to me?"
