What if Our Christmas Card were for REALS?

Okay so it's the time of year again when everyone expects a card that says how wonderful the year was and how thin I am and how smart the kids are and how rich my husband is, and how happy we all are together... well I just can't fake it this year. Don't be surprised if you get a Christmas card/family picture of the Snow Family that includes: Melissa in her brown sweat suit, Dave will be in the picture but wishing he was at another race, Phoenix and Poppy will be wrestling/fighting/poking each other. Willow will have a sour look on her face because her mother just told her she couldn't wear whatever it was that she wanted, and Lily will have a night gown on her head (as Rapunzel hair), and a purple and black scarf stuffed into her panties(so she can be the King Lion). I wonder what people would think if I sent a card out with what we really looked like? Do you ever read peoples cards and think they must be lying? Yeah me too.

Yes that is Willow hitting Poppy .

Yes that is Dave modelling his new motorcycle helmet

These two never cease to make me laugh. This is a picture taken this summer, but very little has changed. I think that they will forever be this, the bobsey twins. Sometimes it's him teasing her and sometimes it's her beating on him. I keep telling her that "someday he'll be bigger than you and he will really let you have it...." but I don't think he has it in him to "let anyone have it". Funny huh.

San Felipe for Spring Break! The weather was perfect, and so were the fish tacos! I actually had shrimp which were even better! We rode the motorcylces and quads, and the barney(sand rail). We swam, and picked up shells for the summer sale. We shopped in town and helped the local economy which is so sad. Dave took the kids fishing in the boat and each one reeled some in. The neighbor Joe helped the kids fish from the shore. Then in the evening on Thursday the grunion ran! It was a crack up to watch the kids flop down on the beach to catch them! We ate smores, and dutch oven goodies! It was so relaxing!

The car ride down is always a treat. 6 hours. The car ride home was even better this time. Dave didn't bathe the WHOLE time we were there. His man stink was a little much for me. At one point I wondered if he would notice if I tried to sit in the back with the kids. The border patrol agent passed us through faster than ever before. NO Secondary Check Point to search further for us. I think we could have camouflaged the stink from a dead body!

PS I took these pictures but not in San Felipe. I still haven't downloaded those pictures yet! Lazy I know.

A Weekend Owed

So Dave went to the races and got to do all those greasy things that happen in a pit crew. Now it's my turn. All I really want is to eat and have a pedicure. Where to go on a girls weekend?

Dave's Many Adventures

Dave the High Adventurer went for another little weekend getaway. This time he went to Laughlin to work with the pit crew for a race team(BJ Balldwin)! He flew home with James and JD in James's 4 seater plane!
