Christmas 2013

Another amazing Christmas at the Meinhardt house!  We hosted Xmas eve for the 2nd year and it was a blast.  We had good friends, Oma and Opa, corn hole, good food, great weather, Grandmommy and lots to drink.  The kids love it when we host.  They have this crazy energy.  Anyway, Christmas day was FULL of presents and then we headed over to the Margallo's for dinner.  Oh, and some jacuzzi time.  Again, we were blessed with AMAZING weather.

The girls got a vanity from mom and dad and so far, it's a hit.  Jbird got legos from Santa and a huge world map from mom and dad.  There were lots more but those are the fun ones.  Merry Christmas!

Daddy had to work after Christmas so Grandmommy and I took the kids down so Mary could get a tour of ryan's office (she had never been) and then we headed to lunch.  The kids LOVE going to Ryan's office.  You can see why...

 Pillows and crazy manufacturing going on everywhere.

Palos Verdes Tide Pools

Ryan took the kids to the tide pools a while back but the tide was high so they couldn't get to them.  We decided it would be fun to take Grandmommy there since she had never been.  Neither had I.  It was beautiful and the kids loved it.

Happy 4th Birthday Mabel!!!!

I could of sworn I just wrote you a 3rd birthday message.  Time is flying and you get funnier, sweeter and more lovable every year.  I love you like crazy and I love the time we get together now that Amelia and Jeremy are both in school.  This is your time baby.  You get to be numero uno!!!
Thank you for loving Jbird with all of your heart.  Thank you for being such an amazing sister to Amelia.  Thank you for making me laugh every day.  Thank you for being such a "daddy's girl".  You make him feel like one special guy.  I guess that's what you do best.  You make everyone feel happier, special, loved and important.  That's pretty impressive for a 4 year old!  
Love you so so so so so much sweet Mabes.

Your "you"ness:
You still love to color
You make pictures for mommy and daddy every day
You always ask me which of my shoulders is the "bad one" and then kiss it
You say "zip up it" instead of zip it up
You still eat breakfast really late and you still like salty more than sweet for that meal
You are selfless
You just climbed up the ladder and daddy found you on the roof behind him while he was putting up xmas lights
You have lots of friends
You love wearing tights with nothing else
You're the first one naked
You still love water and taught yourself how to swim
Matthew is your "boyfriend"
You always tell us your head or belly hurt so you can take medicine
You love to sit in the corner of the couch every morning
Your favorite show is Paw Patrol - a show about a group of puppies
And last but not least, you're still OBSESSED with dogs!
