Glendale glitter and glow

Last night we went to a local event called the "Glendale Glitter and Glow Block Party". It was fun. We parked a few blocks up and took a shuttle bus to downtown. It think the girls had more fun on the bus than anything else! They have hot air balloons set up amongst food vendors, stilt walkers, jugglers, live music, rides and lights. It was fun to get out and it was the perfect temperature right around 70 degrees. Beautiful!


We have a couple of olive trees in the front yard of where we live and they were thick! So the Maloufs came and cleaned them out. We had fun! They have a recipe to make really good olives apparently..I still need to try some Teralee!

picture catch up!

Here are pictures from our Holidays.

Catching up

Well, here we are back in Arizona after a nice trip home to Northern Idaho. We intended to stay through the whole month of January, but some meanies from Cory's school got our hopes up and then decided to rain on our parade! So here we are....Cory has to travel to east Mesa Monday through Friday which is easily at least an hour commute in good traffic. We only get to see time about 3 hours each evening. He's exhausted and so am I, but life is good and I am so thankful for the wonderful times we had with friends and family in Idaho. The Holidays were so fun, especially since one of my best-ever friends Rochelle got married and we got to spend a lot of time doing shower and reception stuff and I got to meet her awesome new husband Paul. We miss you guys!!
Christmas was wonderful as usual and of course we all got way too spoiled, especially Lauren. I will post pictures as soon as I feel like taking the time! We got our fill of snow too, which is weird for our little valley, but we had a white Christmas and it was so fun to go sledding on Christmas day!
So now it's time to get back to some normalcy in our lives and stop celebrating with food! Wish us luck getting back on "the wagon" after falling off of it for 6 weeks!
