Christmas Union Square

When my Mom and Lane were in town we went down to Union Square the day after Thanksgiving for the tree lighting ceremony. The tree was beautiful and full of twinkling lights. We enjoyed looking at all the fun Christmas windows around all the stores!

I love all the wreaths Macy's puts in all their windows!

Me and my cute hub:)

I love Christmas time!

Mom and Lane

The St. Regis has a different huge sugar/candy castle each year.

Tiffany's Windows

Each year Macy's teams up with the Humane Society and features cute little pets in each window that can be adopted.

We had such a good time getting into the Christmas spirit early this year!

Thanksgiving 2010

We had a wonderful Thanksgiving this year. We had our first Thanksgiving at our home! My mom and step-dad came down from Seattle to celebrate Thanksgiving with us. We are so thankful for so many blessings in our lives (especially family!)
We had a wonderful holiday full of memories and wonderful food:)
The boys helping to get the table set

My darling mother!
Not very many women cook in their high heels:)

My mom and Lane went on a run and came back with these beautiful flower and other things to make a pretty table centerpiece.

I was so happy that we got to use some of our table lines and other items we got for our wedding!
The centerpiece turned out really pretty with some candles my mom bought for me
Amazing Thanksgiving Feast
Even in my small kitchen my mom cooked the BEST Thanksgiving dinner. We brined the turkey and it turned out AMAZING! She added cinnamon and chili into the brine which gave the turkey and gravy a terrific taste.

Love you Mom!

Even Deuce came down to celebrate

After dinner we sat down and played a game of Mexican Train
We LOVE this game!

Happy Thanksgiving!

49ers vs. Rams

Our great friend Bryan was nice enough to get us some tickets to see him in action against our 49ers. We had such a great time! The game was amazing! We can now check going to Candlestick Park off our to do list:)
Thanks Bry!

Rams vs. 49ers.
Candlestick Park
I was told that it is always freezing here so I made Brady dress warm, turns out it was a record hot day of 88 and we were dying of heat:)

There is this awesome escalator going up to the stands

Brady was in HEAVEN!

View from up top
Such a BEAUTIFUL day!
The parking lot was full of tailgaters.
I've never seen tailgating like this before!

Warm-ups and stretching

They had a youth cheer leading performance
Bryan is stretching right below the S

Getting pumped up for the Niners to come out:)

Bryan is right in the middle on the SF logo

It was also fun to see Ty Rees and his family that came out to San Fran for the game

The game was so close!
After the game we walked down to the field to say hi to Bry.

It was so great to see Bryan and catch up for a little!
Great game Bry!
Thanks for letting us come and watch!

Go Giants

Better late than never!
Working downtown has been so much fun, especially when the Giants won the World Series!
I had the chance to walk over to see the Giants parade with Brittany and Carly.
So many people were out in their orange and black and all the street corners were decorated with giant orange and black balloons.

Brittany and Carly
These two girls are so much fun to work with!

So cool that we live in San Fran when the Giant won the World Series

Everyone getting excited for the parade to start

I loved all the floats!

Fear the Beard!

All of the players were on classic San Fran Trolley cars:)
