it's beginning to look a lot like CHRISTMAS...

The count down to Christmas...
This is my favorite time of the year, even though I hate cold weather.  There is nothing like going to the parades, (Whittier Christmas Parade.  Liz's mom's club participated)

boat parades, 
Christmas parties, 
and seeing all the decorations.  I guess I feel this way because of parents love of Christmas that they have passed to us.

And we are passing the love of Christmas down...

Christmas past...

phil's 32nd birthday

Happy Birthday Phil!!!

32 years ago God was in a very, very good mood when he made you!!! I've never met anyone so hilarious, so energetic & so unforgettable!
If you've read my blog for a while you may think that Phil sounds kind of perfect. Well, that's because he kind of is. I mean, if playing video games is the worst thing someone can then play away! :) I guess he has to balance out our relationship with my drama and craziness!

Count 'em down! 32 reason I love you!
  1. I love how whenever you have a receipt or piece of paper in your hand you fold it up as tiny as possible. Then I have to unfold all of them to see if you wanna keep it or throw it away.
  2. I love how thoughtful you are of everyone around you.
  3. You turn off your headlights if they're in someones eyes.
  4. I love how you wake up with Bryant so I can sleep.
  5. I love when I try to take a picture of you this is what I get... your muppet smile...
  6.  I love those kissable lips.
  7. I love when we watch Craig Fergeuson (sp?)  you practice stand up routines in front of me.
  8. I love when you sing the Sunday/Monday night Football theme song at the top of your lungs while watching game, and that you are trying so hard for Bryant to learn the songs.
  9. I love that you are a great role model for Anthony.
  10. I love that you massage my back and my feet after a long day!!
  11. I love that you are the Best Dad!
  12. That you take me to the ballet, philharmonic, theatre, and operas, eventhough I know you really don't like them.  I love that you surprised me with second row seats to see Wicked for my birthday.
  13. I love how every single night since we've been married the last thing I hear is "sweet dreams."
  14. I love how after evey single phone call you tell me "I love you".
  15. I love that you probably change a many diapers as me (although I have to ask).
  16. I love that you've never wanted to miss a day of church since starting your catechism class.
  17. I love that you let me pick where we travel on our vacations, even though I know you are not into traveling and would just prefer for us to stay home!
  18. I love when you drive me around late at night to buy donuts!
  19. I love when you call around every restaurant in town on Valentines Day to find my perfect chocolate souffle.
  20. I love when you take me out to get my cafe mocha and croissant from the Coffee Bean.
  21. I love that after you finished the triathlon!!! Even when the other guys backed down.
  22. I love that when we go on the cruise you sing your heart out at the piano bar.
  23. I love your smile.
  24. I love when you get so excited about buying crap and how much you saved!
  25. I love that you are such a law dork!!  I love the great job you did in your Trial Ad class in cross-examing that you made the poor girl cry.
  26. I love that you have so much fun playing golf with the guys.
  27. I love how you are completely supportive with my scrapbooking and all the time that it requires.
  28. I love how you always order the exact same thing off the menu at Islands and don't understand why I ever even look at them.
  29. I love how much you want to go back and help at Habitat for Humanity for their Christmas in April service projects. I thought you only joined the Rotary Group with me at UCSD to date me!
  30. I love how much pride you get from having a fixed up home.
  31. I love how you immediately make people smile when they talk to you.  I love how you have me rolling on the floor laughing with the drop of a quote and a silly joke.  I love that you hang out with your friends all the time, and try to think of things for us to do to hang out.
  32. I love when you get home from work and I feel like a dead mommy you look at me like I'm beautiful!!
love ya' babe!!
