Airport standby

I know we haven't updated our blog lately....but this is why. You see this pic? This is airport standby.
When you sit airport standby you have to sit in the flight attendant lounge for 5 hours.
That's right....just sit and wait to see if they call you.
It seems like a big part of our life the last few weeks has been airport standby.
(I'm only smiling because I just got here.....4 hour and 40 min to go!)

While we were there we finally got to go to the Griffith has been closed for the last 6 years we have tried to go.

The remodel of the observatory is awesome....not to mention the view. It was an unusually clear night and we got these incredible pictures of downtown.

Winter in Texas it's a little dramatic....(it was only 65 out), but I was freezing. This is me "helping" put up Christmas lights. Hey...I've had plenty of years in the snow and rain. I wanted to let Miguel have a turn!
Miguel hard at work.

The finished product. Not very exciting...but it is so much more fun to decorate your own house!

Semper Fi (Always Faithful)

The Marine Corps Hymn

From the halls of Montezuma,
To the shores of Tripoli;
We fight our country's battles
In the air, on land, and sea;
First to fight for right and freedom
And to keep our honor clean;
We are proud to claim the title
Of United States Marine.

Our flag's unfurled to every breeze
From the dawn to setting sun;
We have fought in every clime and place
Where we could take a gun;
In the snow of far-off northern lands
And in sunny tropic scenes;
You will find us always on the job
The United States Marines.

Here's health to you and to our Corps
Which we are proud to serve;
In many a strife we've fought for life
And have never lost our nerve;
If the Army and the Navy
Ever look on Heaven's scenes;
They will find the streets are guarded
By United States Marines.

On November 10 is the United States Marine Corps 233 Birthday.

Best present ever???? when I was home this past week, we celebrated Andy's birthday. (It counts even though it's late!)

Andy got cards....

the kids were kind enough to share their Halloween candy......

an In-n-out 60th anniversary tee, Darth Vader keychain..............


an 'Andy' bobble head.

I know, I know......I was slightly proud of my present choice this year.......ok, let's be honest, I've been scheming and looking forward to this for almost a whole year. Nothing is too good for my bro.

Happy Birthday!

Ok, so for those of you who know me know that I love Halloween!

I'm a total dork, but I still love to play in front of the blacklight.

I think it's a good look for me!

We decorated for Halloween and this was what we've come up with so far. Nothing major, but we still have a couple of weeks. I wanted to make sure we got a pic of our "special needs" skeleton. Isn't he adorable?

Just because he's missing a few bones (tarsals I think) doesn't mean he can't fulfill his Halloween destiny.
