Christmas Lights

I have pretty much finished the Christmas lights finally. Still a few strands to throw in the bushes right in front of the house, but besides that it looks decent. Too many cars in the street, so I couldnt back away very easily to pan out and focus in. Hope everyone is having a Merry Christmas and enjoying the season!

Christmas is Here!!!

Christmas is off and running. I got as many of the lights up as possible. Unfortunately I switched around the icicle lights in the middle of the strand and had to restring them after it was dark to be able to run power. Still, we got it going. Still have to add some more snowmen and santa clauses to the front and some more lights in different places, but its looking ok. Got it set on a timer as well, so simplifies when they go on and off. First year I have been able to really do lights at my own house, so it was a lot of fun. Enjoy the quick video and we will get some more up when its all done!


Alix and I got our Christmas present a littler early. We bought  a sony hd camera, so here are some first takes with it. Of course, the video is suppressed on the blog, so wont be anything amazing here, but its a nice camera. Havent been able to take much with Noah yet, but will be adding videos of him shortly as well. At least this way the rest of his life wont be in 10 second clips on our digital camera!

The clips are of the new edge and the vecjet. The vecjet is hard to see in the video because the video is small and so is the plane itself. But, you can get the picture of the speed it has and the climb rate if you watch closely. The edge flies great although I had a little hard landing or the touch and go did it. Compressed the fuselage a little right underneath one side of the landing gear, but easy fix and already is done. Ready to fly again!

New Edge

Well, finally got the edge done and in the air. Alix took a small video of the take off and the landing and did a good job. Especially considering my transmitter was beeping and saying dead battery, so I had to bring it in quick and she caught it. As you can see Noah loves to go flying and that is pretty much what he asks to do all day long. He brings out his planes and lines them up with mine. He flies them around and if you listen you can hear him making sounds in the background. He wasnt too happy when we had to leave, but he never is when we take him away from flying!

Yeah for halloween. This year his mom made him an airplane costume. He like flying- and he liked his "cool eyes" aka his goggles. We went trunk or treating with Alix's family. That was a little overwhelming for Noah and a scary money costume freaked him out. He kept saying that Halloween was scary and was very worried that the monster was going to get John, so he helped John pass out candy. Then we went to the neighborhoods and that was a big hit. The houses were not scary, they were happy houses. Noah loved it and was amazed each time that he got "more candy" It was alot of fun and everyone loved his costume. 

picking pumpkins

We went and picked out pumpkins and went on a tractor ride. Noah loved the tractor ride. We then let him pick out which ever pumpkin he could carry. He loves pumpkins.

We just got back from Monterey. We have not gone on a family vacation as  just a family for a long time. We went to the beach and the aquarium. Noah saw lots of big fish, sharks, and nemo. He loved the beach and chasing the waves. We had a wonderful time.

Noah is 2!!!


Vacation To Washington in July

We went to Washington for vacation in mid july. We visited the grandparents, Tiff and Jeremiah, and had a lot of fun. Noah enjoyed the beach, bubbles, and planes! The beach was nice for me until I tried to get a ball for Brynley and fell down a rock face and I still probably need to go to the doctor for it! Too expensive! Jen had her baby shower and the girls had fun at that while we hit the lynx. All in all it was a great trip and great weather!
