As I told you the other day …. in mid-February we stopped by Zack and Jamie’s new house in San Diego on our way to Phoenix.
Why the spur of the moment trip to Phoenix?
My grandmother has just been diagnosed with brain cancer so we decided to come visit her.
Her diagnosis and [...]
I’m so glad we did our Christmas at home – our first year in this house and our first year with the girls. I mean. Cats. I love my cats. What?
We had a slow morning…. My parents left around noon to drive back home, so before then we just relaxed.
New Schubert family tradition: girls-only craft day around the holidays
(yes, these photos are from December. So?)
On a Saturday morning in mid-December I took my computer over to Andy and Julie’s to work while Julie, Kaitlin, Aunt Susie and Amanda crafted ….
They made these [...]
Here is a post full of gratuitous photos of our nephew. 2nd week of December – he was almost 7 months old.
Joe and Kaitlin stopped by the house on a Saturday afternoon …. Joey got to show us his new teeth and pet the kitties (since their cat isn’t really up for that [...]
SO as I said we went to Phoenix for Thanksgiving weekend.
Just as with every visit to Phoenix, we have to make plans to see about 95 different groups of people. Thursday we did Thanksgiving dinner with my mom’s extended family. Friday we did Thanksgiving dinner with my dad’s extended family.
Luckily it was [...]
….. aaaaand…. here we go!
Waaaay back to November 2012 – Thanksgiving.
As you probably know, we were *just* in Phoenix 2 weeks prior for Miranda’s wedding, and then a couple months before that for Kim’s baby shower.
So I’m not totally sure why we decided to come out for Thanksgiving.
Either way – [...]
Andrew and I don’t really buy each other gifts. We haven’t done Christmas for each other in years. We did 30th birthday gifts, but no birthdays for awhile.
That doesn’t mean we don’t think about gifts for other people!
Here are just a few ideas for holiday gifts for your loved ones…
(note: Because [...]
These photos are from the beginning of October …. Which means Joey was almost 5 months old….
He and Katie were hanging out at Andy and Julie’s, so of course we went over to visit. And see the little munchkin.
He had just [...]
We have a little pile of birthdays to celebrate at the end of June/beginning of July … Julie’s, Jenae’s and Andrew’s.
On the Sunday that Liz came into town, Julie planned on having everyone over for dinner.
Andrew had already warned Liz that we have kittens (“I LOVE kittens!,” she said), and asked if [...]
Now that we have a darling nephew, I feel like we’ve been seeing Kaitlin and Joe a lot more!
A week or so ago, Katie made plans to come up to SCV so we met her and Julie and Gma for breakfast at our local little Greenhouse Cafe (where we went for my birthday).
Monday morning Memorial Day!
The first Memorial Day in 4 years that I haven’t worked – previous years I volunteered to work for the overtime pay because I assumed Andrew would be working. And then he never did.
SO this year I elected to just take the day ….
We got up Monday morning [...]
The Sunday of Memorial Day weekend our house was full of people.
We KNEW that the house would be full of people, and yet Andrew insisted on working around the house that morning. He BUILT a window screen (post to come). And my parents and I kept telling him to RELAX. He’s just not [...]
Our Memorial weekend was SO FULL….
So full I feel like I needed to take the rest of last week off to recover
I must be getting old.
My parents got into town late Friday night, and then early Saturday morning Andrew had to go to work …
My only plans for Saturday were [...]
One final baby shower for Kaitlin … close enough to her due date that the shower host had a mild panic attack when Kaitlin called her the day before!
This shower was put on by Joe’s godmother … Aunt Mary. She went ALL OUT … It was AMAZING and so gorgeous and at a [...]
Andrew and I are going to have a nephew in just a few weeks! As in less-than-4 weeks! Hopefully.
Easter Sunday, Joe and Kaitlin came out to Santa Clarita early in the afternoon and we did some fun couple-maternity photos.
Little Joey is going to be so spoiled
Note: Katie also did some [...]
