-----Made cookies
-----All kinds of DELICIOUSNESS
-----Spent Christmas there
-----Got my hair hacked off (hence the before and after pics)
-----Made LOTS of good memories
-Spent a few days in Seattle
-----Shopping and more shopping
-----Spending time with Grandma and Grandpa
-Flew to San Jose (by myself with 3 kids...they did great)
----Went to the beach
----Enjoyed a seafood dinner on the pier with the fam (WITH OUT KIDS :0))
----Beach (although it was raining and cold)
----San Francisco (this is THE MOST fun place to visit, and when I go there, I think of HOME and awesomeness, and childhood because I have been there A LOT)
----Played with some friends (THURMANS and Peter too!!!!) I haven't see in ages (miss you guys!!)
----Chuck E Cheese
----Played with grandma and grandpa (I have NOT been to their house in over 3 years!!!! TOOOO long)
----Went to Oakland temple (where Aaron and I were married!)
----Visited and ATE (OF COURSE)

Dave and I did the same thing. 3 straight weeks of vacation. So nice isn't it? Your hair looks really cute!! We'll have to join you on one of your trips down to San Fran sometime. Neither of Dave or I have been there.

I'm so glad you had fun! You deserve a little break like that once in a while. I feel for you - when you go a long time without being "home"....I'm glad you had fun and got to do that!

Cute hair! :)
