What Do You Do On A Rainy Afternoon?

Wednesday and Thursday afternoons are pretty slow around our house, because those are the days I teach music at the elementary school and am usually pretty exhausted after 5 hours of singing, dancing, trying to get 4o kids at a time to be on the right beat with their instrument....and with the rain that started right after school got out...I knew we would be spending this afternoon inside. Here is what we like to do:Jocelyn likes to play with all her purses
Jocelyn likes to count all her purses and make sure she has enough junk for every possibly situation that may occur while we are home. That even includes hiding in a dark room, going through the trash (which she knows she shouldn't do because its gross, and taking thing out to stuff in her purses)
Tyler tries to give himself a snack because I am trying to have a 5 minute break to myself.

Victoria likes to be a couch potato, eat a bag of pita chips (that is what is in the background) and watch lots of t.v. She likes to veg when there is no ballet, tap, jazz, or piano class to go to.

Happy Birthday Cory!

Tomorrow is my brother, Cory's birthday. He is in Nigeria right now working on a new project with the Nigerian government/parliment that will help to restructure villages around the country. He is doing amazing things! I miss him....but know that he truly is changing lives. You can see his African travel if you click on the link on the right hand side of my blog, under family, that says Cory. Happy Birthday Bro! I love you and miss you, but am so proud of you.Cory, Jenna, Me and David, Lauren (before she had her baby) and Todd

I have a new love!

So, David and I have been trying to eat really healthy. We are eating a lot of fruits and veggies and very little meat these days. On Sunday, David's sister cooked quinoa! Have you ever tried it? If not, you should! I have wanted to for a very long time, but just haven't gotten around to it. She cooked it in her rice cooker with chicken broth and served it just like rice. It was a lot of protein and is supposedly one of the best things you can give your body. The picture below is of a breakfast quinoa bowl I will be trying soon. Try it out and let me know.

Has it really been two months?

November and December have been very busy. Here are highlights, most recent first:
My brother Todd and his wife Lauren welcomed baby #2, Tasha Joy into the world on December 28th...a day before Victoria's 7th birthday.

Santa sent the Hunts to Disneyland for three days, including Christmas Day itself. Jocelyn was thrilled to be in Disneyland on her birthday (and Christmas day which is by far the CRAZIEST day of the entire year.) Here we are at Goofy's kitchen..where you get to have breakfast with Disney Characters. Victoria said that this was one of the best days of her life.
Christmas Day- Happy Birthday Jocelyn! She sported a shiny birthday crown, pink boots,birthday jewelry and a red "It's My Very Merry Birthday" shirt that my friend, Trina, embroidered for her.

December 18th - Our 10 year wedding anniversary! WOW! What a lot we've done in ten years. We got to celbrate with two nights away at the La Costa Resort and Spa (without kids). I highly recommend it to anyone!

We spent ten days during Thanksgiving in Colorado with David's sister, Elizabeth and her family. We really had a wondeful trip and miss them so much.
