crazy in cali

there's alot of pictures here...so I'm gonna jump right in and start with some food shots. Because what is a trip without amazing food? :) 




fresh salsa...




for tacos 





the cookie queen




fruit jello




working her magic



i ate close to fifty of these babies...




off for adventures the next morning, armed with coffee for the firstborns and cocoa for the third borns :)




it's a third born thing



they were awesome models



the four of us




then off to find the :perfect: tree!



"Well, I'm not sure if this branch strikes my fancy..."




how many girls does it take to saw down a tree??? I guess three ;)




art






i have a thing for mistletoe right now :)




we were a little excited to have our own tree




and what's a drive without delicious food...




and drinks? :)




look at these girls...am I not lucky to have friends/sisters who look like models??



and not just gorgeous, but super sweet, funny, and stylish girls too.



yes, we did get tired of walking. 





i was thinking about someone.





back home, holding baby Abigail. So adorable!



now to deal with the tree...



"I think it comes off like this..."





"No, maybe like this..."


"Umm...guys, what are you doing??"




Once that was dealt with, we made more cookies.


like i really needed more temptation in the cookie department...






singing to Abigail


dinner that night was quite diverse




we made popcorn for stringing 





cutest little overseer





we really got into the christmas spirit :)




Apples to Apples had never been so fun ;)



ice-cream...with movies...one of the best ways to relax. Ever.




making a gingerbread house




quite an intense project. 






such a cute little house ;)



then we dressed up and went out for dinner. Which was this amazing pizza ^



and tortellini...



and drinks. So much fun.



the next morning was "Christmas Day" and we opened stockings...



and presents. We love Justin Bieber SO much. 

(if you think i'm serious, well...please think again)














and what's a trip to Cali without In-N-Out burgers? :)




We also went to the Sees candy store. Dangerous place.



But then we went ice-skating and worked some of the pudge off. 






don't worry...I gained it right back. 




Then we whipped out a music video. 




With no prep and a filming time of about 4 hours, it was our fastest ever.


we had the most amazing lead singer this time :)



and a pretty great support group too ;)




the "Editing Team" going a little crazy. The Team consists of Ana doing all the work, and me sitting next to her, texting my boyfriend and feeling completely lost watching how skilled she is. lol





Sparkling apple cider





Polka dot skirts to Chipotle. So tame compared with our old costumes ;)




Such a good burrito. 




Because what is driving without good music, turned up loud?




it was a wonderful trip.

Wow, you wrapped up all the food we had in one post! It was depressing realizing how much we actually ate! haha But...loved your post. I don't know what you were saying about the cookie queen though...it was more like the cookie creep. =/
