Riley's first contact with snow

I guess it's a good thing we don't live in Idaho anymore. :0)

Christmas Snow

We happened to get snow on Christmas night, which meant James got his wish, that Riley would be able to see snow on Christmas. She hated the snow at first. We even got her some snow boots, but she got really mad when we made her woke through the snow. We have a video that I will upload later. But for now here are some pictures of James and Riley and their snowman.

I knew I was white but...

 Studio Fix Fluid SPF 15
So, James and I headed to the mall today and I thought "Hey I need some foundation, mine is almost out and now that winter is here I am lighter so my foundation right now doesn't really match." I decided to take the foundation I still had so I would know what color I was not and go lighter. Here is how it played out as I sat in the chair waiting for the MAC girl to come help me.

Me: "I need some foundation, here is what I have right now...but I need to go lighter, it's too dark for me.

MAC: "You need lighter then this?" (with a disbelief look on her face & James listening and watching all this go down...trying not to laugh)

Me: "Yes, I know I am butt white..."

MAC: "OK, this one is too dark." (Then she goes and gets the first bottle on the sample tray) "This is the one."

Me: "Wow, am I really the first foundation, the LIGHTEST one?"

MAC: "Yup, good thing cause that's the lightest we have!"

Me: "Awesome. Now, I am the whitest person the MAC lady has ever put makeup on."

Don't Bother Calling Me....

Well, since I don't have a house phone for people to contact me when you can't reach me on my cell I thought the next best thing is to blog it. So, the reason my title is don't bother calling me is because Riley dropped my cell phone is the toilet this morning while my DEAR husband was watching her (he let me go back to sleep this morning, he is so SWEET.) So, the second time I woke up this morning it wasn't to Riley yelling for me to get her out of her crib...it was to James saying "You have to get a new phone!" (As he dropped my phone that the screen is full of toilet water on the bed, YES I will be washing the sheets). Then he told me that he heard Riley flush the toilet and went to tell her to get out of the toilet water and stop playing and then he REALIZED she was carrying my phone that was dripping water! Yeah, the life of being a parent. At that moment I laughed and thought "WOW! For ONCE phone insurance has come in handy!" So, don't bother calling me until Tuesday when my new phone gets here because since its Saturday and tomorrow is Sunday, my phone won't get overnighted until Monday. So until Tuesday I will be out of the loop and out of a phone :0)

PS-I thought it would be funny to tell you things that have occurred on JAMES' watch (while babysitting Riley)

1.) Riley at dog food (first and last time, but she did try and go back for more)
2.) Riley colored on the Kitchen walls with red and black crayons
3.) Riley dropped my phone in the toilet

I really can't tell if he lets these things happen on purpose so that he doesn't have to babysit or it just happens :0) Oh well, stories to remember and tell later.

Riley passed out in her stroller after running around SF all day, she finally gave in. She's so cute!
Riley and James on the Ferry ride over to San Fran.

Overall our trip to California was great. Riley got to see both sets of grandparents, Rick and Cathryn and Leo and Dottie. She also got to meet Uncle Cameron, he'll be a great dad one day, he kept Riley entertained. :0) And we can't forget about Summer, James' and Cameron's dog. It was a lot of fun and hard to leave. We hit up all of our favorite places, we ate at In-n-Out a total of 5xs, YUM! Had some Mexican food, had Mongolian BBQ and brought back some sourdough bread from Pier 39 :0) It was a great trip. Thanks Cathryn and Rick for everything.

So Riley got the chance to sit on Santa's lap. She was so cute, and so serious! She just touched his beard and stared at him.
