The Teddy Bear Tea

Savannah & I had a very special weekend! We left Saturday morning to go to the Teddy Bear Tea at the Ritz Carlton in San Francisco and spent the night. We have been hearing about the tea for years & I have been dying to take Savannah. It was adorable and so well done-- I think we will definitely make it an annual tradition. Next year we might even let Daddy & Dylan crash our party!

Here is Savannah on the ferry ride into the city

All dressed and ready for the tea party. I know I am a little bias-- but she looked adorable!

Savannah & her new friend-- Stafford the teddy (compliments of the Ritz Carlton)

Sipping her "tea". It was really hot cocoa with A LOT of marshmallows-- marshmallows with a little bit of hot cocoa is probably a more accurate description.

Listening to The Night Before Christmas

One last picture with Teddy-- my favorite!

After the tea party, we went back to the hotel to change and then explored San Francisco a bit. We stayed right down on the wharf so there was lots to do!  On the way home from dinner we walked by the wax museum and Savannah insisted we take a picture with MJ...

Her other request was that we watch a movie in our bed at the hotel & have breakfast in bed--- we did both :) Here she is all snuggled up and ready for bed... with her new favorite teddy of course!

Then in was time to go back home. Until next year...

Happy Holidays

Our Christmas pooch-- I couldn't resist. Yvette wasn't a fan...

We decorated the tree over the weekend-- I LOVE CHRISTMAS!

Thanksgiving in Nipomo

We spent Thanksgiving in Nipomo with the Pommy, Papa, Granpapa & Oody. The weather was absolutely beautiful and we enjoyed a wonderful holiday and all that we are thankful for!

Dylan reading a story with Granpapa. The kids never had a special name for Grandad until this last weekend when Dylan started calling him Granpapa!

Yvette is even spoiled and Pommy & Papa's house!

Yvette is HOME!

We got an very welcome surprise last week & were able to bring Yvette home early in time for Thanksgiving. Her puppies are all being shipped off to their puppy raisers for Canine Companions this week & she is home with us getting readjusted to life. We are so happy to have her home!

Yvette & CJ are quickly becoming friends!
