November Happenings...

Thanksgiving Break goes so fast!  I can't believe it! We hosted some family at our house again this year.  The girls and I made "Grandma's Noodles" all by ourselves and they actually turned out okay.  The girls had fun spending time with cousins.

Cousins! The boys were playing elsewhere!

The girls and I went to see the Festival of Lights at the Mission Inn with our friends the Young's.

Rose Parade Float

This year the Girl Scouts are celebrating their 100th birthday.  One of the ways that they are celebrating is by having a float in the Rose Parade!  Our troop was able to go and work on prepping the float for the flowers.  I can't believe all of the work that goes into getting a float ready!  I hope I can finally go and see the parade this year!

Girl Scout Camp Out!

Savannah and Sydney on the hike.
All four of us drove up near Lake Arrowhead for the girl scout camping trip.  We camped at Dogwood Campground and it was a beautiful place.  There were 19 girls and 10 adults at our three campsites.  The campground was full of girl scouts, though!  I think the girl scout leaders in charge of the event said their were 400 people?  Crazy.  We set up our tents in the dark by flashlight, went on a short hike, participated in a creative scavenger hunt, made SMORES with girl scout cookies, sang songs and actually got some sleep.
We even managed to win the scavenger hunt!

The Blue Angels

Rob loves the Blue Angels. REALLY loves the Blue Angels. He hasn't seen them the whole time that we have been together (20 years).  We have been wanting to go to an airshow with the girls for awhile, but the weekends never worked out.  So this year it did.  We were actually able to plan a trip to Miramar for the big airshow.  Our nephews Joey and Aiden met us there.

Temecula Wine Country

Rob and  I celebrated our anniversary in Temecula Wine Country last weekend.  South Coast Winery has beautiful Villas and we enjoyed the wine tasting, too.

The picture above and below were taken from the little patio outside our villa.
