Re-Tweeting or Re-posting

If you have a FB account or twitter account, you know what I mean.
Hence, I am "re-posting" our
Christmas Eve Extravaganza from last year's event (click here).
I just want to add these...

We handed out Muddy Buddies
to our neighbors and friends this Christmas.

We went to our Church friend's house
and celebrated Noche Buena
and Pamela's birthday
on Christmas Eve.

Christmas Tradition

Since the kids are growing up, our activities in December have always been a TRADITION.

The boys were playing quietly in their room
then they went to the family room
with this outfit.
They started singing "Santa Claus is coming to town"
and they call themselves TMSB
"The M Singing Boys"

This is my favorite Christmas decoration this year
when we went to the Christmas Lights.
We rolled down our windows and the boys
sang Christmas Songs to the peeps

Christmas Breakfast at Church.
We had a blast!

The boys donated 2 boxes of toys and books
and threw away 2 garbage bags of old toys and books.

L to R

My friends and I wanted to go to Riva in Santa Monica
but Riva closed and now it is Fraiche.
We has a blast eating,laughing and talking.
We enjoyed every single bite of the desserts as well.
Sharon shared us the great news, she is having
another baby girl in April.
Congratulations to the Hot Mamas to be again
Jinky and Sharon

The Rehab Dept. had our Christmas Party and
had our traditional white elephant.
I ended up with a white vase
Thanks to Maria for being a great hostess! :))

The boys love Science Projects
during the last week of School
they had a chance to
work on a Science Project
about Magnetism

They enjoyed making crafts,
exchanging presents

and making yummy treats in their classes

My SIL-Denise
added another title (RN) next to her Respiratory Therapist
when she graduated with Academic Excellence in
Nursing School. She awaits her NCLEX exam.
Yay, Congratulations!

Oh, it was soooo fun!
J.T and I went to the beach on Sat.
it was 78 deg. (a week before Christmas)
While Jake wearing his snow boots went shopping for J.T
with his Dad.

Beach Bum!

What a fun Week!
Hope you all have a Merry Christmas!

Christmas Decoration

I got this email from a friend...

here is the accompanying story...

Well, there is good news and bad news about my Christmas decorations this year. Good news is I truly out did myself this year with my Christmas decorations. The bad news is I had to take him down after 2 days. I had more people come screaming up to my house than ever. Great stories. But two things made me take it down. First, the cops advised me that it would cause traffic accidents as they almost wrecked when they drove by. Second, a 55 year old lady grabbed the 75 pound ladder almost killed herself putting it against my house and didn't realize it was fake until she climbed to the top (she was not happy). By the way, she was one of many people who attempted to do that. My yard couldn't take it either. I have more than a few tire tracks where people literally drove up my yard.

Kind of feel like I gave in to the man by taking him down but my neighbor did confirm to near miss accidents on the busy street next to my house. I think I made him too real this time.

So it was fun while it lasted...

Thanksgiving Trip

....with Family and Friends

I have finally recovered from our very-long-never-ending-trip. Everything was a FIRST for us this year.

First Long Trip
We left on Wed. after work
and drove to UT all day/night.
We usually stay over night either at LV or St. G
but we braved to drive all the way
and arrived in UT at 1:15am.
We tried to make it all the way just
filling up for gas one time, but we only made it to Layton.

First Snow of the year
We left sunny So Cal. with a 77 deg.
and arrived in UT at 22 deg. (BRRRR!!!)
UT had a few inches of snow over
Thanksgiving and the boys
were stoked and woke up
and played in the snow.

Family Tradition Hike
Every Thanksgiving, The M family tradition
go on at least 3-4 mile Hike
before feasting for Thanksgiving.

from Eldest to Youngest

The Brothers

First socks
Every month, I happen to throw
away a missing sock or a sock with holes.
The boys played and played and played with their cousins,
ran around Gpa's house
and I don't know how it happened
or when
All I know is that they had a great time
in Utah :)).

First trip to Salt Flats
ON friday
After the Mother and daughter Thanksgiving Brunch Tradition
I know I do not have a picture of it.
We drove to Reno and
saw the other part of UT.
This salt flats were very interesting
Pirates of the Caribbean 3 and Independence day
were filmed here.

First trip to Reno
We stayed overnight at Reno
and drove to Sacramento the next day.
We drove past the "donner pass"
While we were driving up there
Paul told me a little history about the
Donner Party.
The Donner party was a wagon train
of 87 pioneers
that resorted to cannibalism after they
became trapped by heavy snows in the
Sierra Nevada mountains.

Driving up here
was very scenic and
also very scary. It was
totally different
drive from L.A to Las Vegas!

I get Cold easily.
I was bundled up during our trip
long sleeves, sweater,scarf and heater was turned on
I turned back and looked at the boys
without their shirts on
they said
"It was too HOT" for them
and did not want to complain!

First Trip to Sacramento
Ahhhhhhh, SUN!!!!!
I got so excited to see
the SUN and the beautiful
fall foliage in Sacramento.
Our friends Jeremy and Natalie
opened their beautiful home
for us.
Carter is sooo cute and I can't believe
how big he is now.
Thank you for your friendship and
for your hospitality :))

Home Sweet Home
1937.5 miles and total 30 drive hours
I love our truck and just tapped the dashboard
when we arrived home.
I cannot believe we traveled this far.
We traveled
Paul and I were so impressed with our boys.
They did not complain and threw a fit.
They entertained themselves, played, read
talked and watched some of their movies.
We had to save the battery of our Portable DVD
for the trip. But once the
battery was exhausted
they say "needs recharge"

We got home safe
our battery
needed to be
