I'll let the pictures speak for themselves...Enjoy! And Merry Christmas!
(oh the things some people will due for extra calories)
Visiting Bapa at work
Next we headed to Grandma & Grandpa Terrasas' and Grandma Liz's house to enjoy a beautiful fall day and of course the train!
Neveah loves having cousins, she knows that they are like friends but better. She was always looking for her cousins. " Mom, where are my cousins?" "Are my cousins here yet?" " "Hey, Cooousins where are you ?"
The Coplin Kiddos
Char joined baby Myles on the floor
Amaryllis grew and grew and finally bloomed several bright red flowers, unfortunatly due to miscommunication Amaryllis was over-watered and and we came home to a flooded, floating stinky and very dead flower. But she was beautiful while she lasted... we will probably get another.

Progress!...Oh the joy of a little progress. This is my breakfast nook, aka 'the pretty room'...and now it really is. Wicker chairs I bought on craigslist and spray painted them red. Chair pads from Pier 1 bought with a giftcard (thanks Mom). Table is from craigslist as well and I offered half the asking price and got it! Orchid complements of Mrs. Tara Harman. Though not completed I thought I'd share with you my progress.

I love Irvine Park Railroad! It's a huge park that makes you feel miles away from city life complete with pony rides, a lake with boats and ducks, a zoo, lots of wide open play spots and of course a train. This time of year they also have a pumpkin patch! Nevaeh loves horses and going to the park to ride on Dan (a pony) is just about the greatest thing she can imagine. You get to ride whatever pony is available and Nevaeh has ended up with Dan everytime we have gone! Charlotte enjoyed running around and picking up pumpkins and sitting on them. I had this vision of adorable fall pumpkin pictures in these cute little matching orange sweaters.... problem? it was like 90 degrees! So determined to have the sweaters I put the girls in shorts and tanks which made them look a little okie-ish, but made for some cute pics anyway. Al eventually made me take the sweaters off our roasting children. I love the fall season and am so ready for overcast days, crisp mornings, colored leaves, warm soups, scarfs, and pumpkins!
Al, Neaveh and Dan!
Classic Char...food in hand...pants undone.
