O is for Oranges: Tis the season! I bought a bag of clementines on sale this week. As soon as I opened the first one I thought, "It's Christmas!" It was so delicious and definitely reminded me of winter even though it was 75 degrees.

P is for: Disneyland! Park, that is. Whatever, you're just amazed it didn't show up at D. I love having Disneyland passes, though being pregnant it's starting to wear on me. We'll definitely take a break next year; Maggie has stated she doesn't care if I go without her during school, and that she doesn't like going after school because she's tired. The more you go, the more opportunities for disappointment (or annoyances). But I'm excited to get to go on the fun rides again! And the atmosphere never disappoints. It's been a fun 6 months.

I am so grateful for all the local parks nearby. There are at least 6 or 7 we could walk to within 20 minutes. How awesome is that? There's one next to the school we hang out at after school sometimes, now that it's not hot. And our ward has a weekly park day. It's especially great that my kids don't require a ton of attention/following around at the park. Soon to change.

P is for Photos: I think Dalton might be one second child who has MORE pictures taken of him than the first. Although we had a digital camera when M was born, we still weren't in the habit of snapping 1,000 pictures and delete 998. I'm not sure if having an iphone has caused me to take more pictures, or fewer, but I hope to keep it up with our third child.

P is for Parents: My parents left me a great legacy. A love of reading, a musical base, an expectation of college education, cooking and other homemaking skills, a sense of humor, and the genes to make cute babies.
