Birthday Parties and the Balboa Light Parade
4 MORE DAYS TILL CHRISTMAS!!!!
I really want to be six again! Yesterday my niece Alysse turned the big six years old and she was the cutest Snow White Princess I have ever seen :)
Of course I am her favorite Aunt on the Trujillo side (her only).
She was so excited to get our Christmas Card because she loves Bosco!
I got her a Bosco of her own! A little T-Cup puppy that she can carry with her always.
This just looks so natural ;)
I love my Lysse she is just getting sooooo big! HAPPY BIRTHDAY SWEET GIRL!
After the party we headed off to the annual Balboa Light Parade with fun friends!
Hubby and I had Subway on the drive down so when we saw this Yogurt shop on the island I knew it was time for dessert! I got a little bit of all of my favorites, pumpkin, chocolate, peanut butter and banana. I added some Heath Bar and Graham cracker crumbs on top to make it perfection!
Then it was time for the Boat Parade! We saw a few less boats this year, not sure why but all the ones we did see where pretty spectacular!
This is our 9th year getting together for this festive evening!
After we watched the parade we walked around the island and admired the homes that were all DECKED out!
We even had some very entertaining side walk performers.
I wanted to steal this adorable little golf cart!
Our friend Syd actually lives on the island so after we were pooped from walking we stopped by his house to sing some carols with his rock star brother!
Hubby even got up and sang a few, he can sing some wonderful Johnny Cash songs that melt my heart!
As if all of this fun wasn’t enough we headed over to a local coffee shop called The Gypsies Den. I ordered a delicious cup of decaf.
Hubby ordered the Chicken Nachos, I had my share as well (minus the cheese).
What a wonderful night, I miss all of these people!!! My new years resolution is to see them ALL a lot more!
I slept in until 8:30 and laid in bed catching up on my google reader, man you were all so busy this weekend loved reading about your fun filled weekends! When I finally rolled out of bed I made a beautiful bowl of Cranberry Pumpkin Scone Oats!
I have no “REAL” plans today:
- Organize Room + Bathroom
- Wrap presents
- Organize AD stuff
- Get baking list together
- Teach Kickboxing
See you all soon!
P.S. Remember to finish strong out there, I have a great workout I am posting at lunch!
