I'm moving my blog to Tumblr. It's been such a good run here on blogger after being on Xanga for a bit. Why am I moving? I want to keep myself on my techy toes and try to learn a whole new interface. Also, all of my favorite blogs are on Tumblr, so I wanted to be able to reblog and follow them much easier. Their platform is also better supported on my iPad, so I'll be able to blog on the go. How exciting! Here's the new url if you're interested on following me over there:

We've been watching How I Met Your Mother and Cake Boss all weekend. I'm so missing NYC and all of east coast right now. I can't wait for our trip. Can't wait to suit up!

Feliz Navidad!

This year, our good friends, the Esparzas, helped us pick out our Christmas tree. What does that mean? I get my picture perfect tree rather than my hubster's humorous tree. I love unpacking the ornaments and reflecting about our many adventures and memories. I can't wait to share the story behind each ornament with the soybeanitos. 

2007 - I found the ornament that my hubstser's best friend's parents bought us the year that we got married. 

Kimono Girl - One of my first grade kiddos last year gave me this ornament. 

Kartchner Caverns - It was my first trip to caverns with stalagmites and stalactites.

All I Want For Christmas...

is to hold his hand and wander around doing random things. Maybe, we'll follow our nose to somewhere delicious. Maybe, we'll figure out some interesting places to take photos. Maybe, we'll go for a hike. Maybe, we'll go exploring around the city. Most important, I'm going to forget all about work and the kiddos if only for a few days.

December? Really?

These past couple of weeks (including the one that just finished) have been a haze of being overworked. Almost every fun thing was plowed over by too many work commitments or being exhausted from work. For Halloween, we forgot to carve our pumpkins. They're still sitting on our porch. (We're thinking about carving Christmas trees on them.) For Thanksgiving break, we were so worn out from work that we spent most of our time napping. It looks like the weeks before Christmas might suffer the same fate. I'm determined to at least have some holidayness to them. Here is my list:

Wrap gifts. 
Drink egg nog. 
Go to a holiday parade.
Watch a Charlie Brown's Christmas. 

Get our Christmas cards made and sent. 
Get a tree! We have too many new ornaments from this year to put up.

Ready, set, go!
