Mammoth Vacation - December 2010

This winter holiday we were very lucky enough to go to Mammoth for a few days.  We usually go to Big Bear since it's local and we have a condo to stay at.  We decided that this year we would have a fun winter vacation to the best snow, Mammoth.  And it was the best!  Before Christmas they had a big snow storm giving them the "Most Snowfall in the World."  And by the time we left they received over 200 ft of snow for their 2010-2011 winter season.  It was awesome!  We all loved it!  Here are some pictures from our great trip.

Can't wait to go back....

Wordless Wednesday: S.S. Mark Twain

Disneyland's Mark Twain boat ride

Goal for the summer

So I have a goal I really want to get to by this summer.  I have this plan for our kitchen/dining area.  Currently in our dining area, we have some mismatched furniture.  Basically we have an old wood cabinet that holds our wine/margarita/martini glasses, an Ikea unfinished shelf that holds our kid's art stuff and toys, an old piano, and an old futon/couch.  So my plan is to get rid of all of this and put a whole new storage area/cabinets on one side of our wall.  I plan to have it match our kitchen with the same countertops.  When I envision it, I get very excited.  Ben actually likes the idea too.  It will give our kitchen & dining area a new and clean look.  (Eventually we want to put a flatscreen on the wall and get a new dining room table that will fit atleast 8 people.)  Ben & I estimated that this will take a few thousand dollars.  So my goal is to make enough money from notary jobs to save this money by the summer.  I will let you know how it goes.  Wish me luck!

Happy New Years!

Happy 2011 everyone!  This year has been a fun and exciting year for us here.  Some quick highlights:  Trevor & Tyler learning how to ski, having the most snow in Big Bear, going zip lining in Mexico, celebrating 7 years married together, Trevor starting kindergarten, and our 1st trip to Mammoth with beautiful snow!  And I look forward to another great year with more memories to remember.  Goodbye 2010 and Hello 2011...

Now onto to New Years Resolutions.  Two quick ones I think I do need to work on are keeping my patience with the kids and keeping our house more clean (less boxes & clutter in the house - this one is for the husband).  Two simple resolutions, I hope I keep it up.

Happy New Years!
