Project 365

I didn't get these posted Sunday night - but I'm still sticking to my goal of posting my Project 365 pictures each week. So here you go:

Monday: The boys were so excited to try a recipe called "Be Bim Bop". We had read a book from the library about a Korean meal and it included a recipe for the food in the story. We made that for dinner and then headed into town for "Cloudy With A Chance of Meatballs for FHE."

Tuesday: I don't have an official picture for this day. This was the crazy day when my mom and I decided to hop in the car and run to Disneyland. I wish I had taken a picture of me running around like a lunatic.

Wednesday: We drove to Anaheim and ended the day @ Mimi's Cafe for dinner. The boys enjoyed their "Mimi" Mouse pancakes. The boys still didn't realize where we were or what we would be doing the next day.

Thursday: DISNEYLAND! It was so fun to see the boys faces and their excitement. After we had told the boys what we were doing I told Gabe - "All I want today is for you to make sure that everytime you realize how much fun we're having I want you to tell me that you love me and give me a hug." All day Gabe would wrap his arms around me and my mom filled with hugs and love. It was all decorated with Halloween decorations - it was AMAZING! What a completly magical day & trip!

Friday: California Adventures and another day at Disneyland. We ended the day with 2 fireworks shows @ Disneyland. Another great day full of awesome memories. Friday was also Cory & my 11th anniversary. It was so odd to have an anniversary and be several states away from each other (did I mention he didn't come with us?) We'll celebrate later together, but we love each other. He gave me some beautiful flowers when I got home. Thanks sweetie!

Saturday: We drove home from California today just in time for Trick or Treating. There weren't many trick-or-treaters that came by our house, and the boys didn't go to too may houses either - but it was a good holiday. I dressed up for the first time in years (as requested by the boys). Gabe was a Red Power Ranger & Hunter was in typical "hand-me-down" mode and wore Gabe's old Buzz Lightyear costume. It was fun that my mom - "Nana" got to see the kids during the holiday. Truthfully though, we were exhausted at the end of the day.

Sunday: EXHAUSTION - nothing but pure exhaustion. That meant my favorite Sunday dinner - scrambled cheesy eggs. We added orange cinnamon rolls (that were for Halloween) and oranges. A totally orange meal.
