One of our annual traditions that really kicks off our Christmas season is going to Disneyland to watch Ruston sing in Disneyland’s annual Candlelight Processional.
It’s Fall, which means there’s all sorts of holiday versions of foods and beverages coming out. I’m always up for interesting flavors like that, so I rounded up a few of my favorites and on a lazy Sunday afternoon, Theresa, Ian, and I tried them all.
For the past week, Ian’s been talking about Disneyland, Disneyland, Disneyland. On Saturday, we joined up with Ruston and Jacob and took Alli on her very first visit to the parks! Just like they were with us on Ian’s first visit to Disneyland!
Ian slept fine the night before, but this video was totally Alli. Alli must have been too excited to sleep the night before because she was up every couple of hours.
Ian’s birthday is coming up and we’ve got some visitors! Gram and Pop Pop flew in to say hi!
And they were able to meet Alli for the very first time!
Happy Halloween! Ian wore this shirt today.
And Alli was in a Boo shirt.
We’re nearing the end of our Hawaii trip. Just a day and a half left before we have to head home. We’ve tried to keep a pretty slow schedule during our visit here, but there’s one more big outing left for us.
Today we’re going to see the nearby Allerton Garden, a local botanical garden. Tickets are $45 per person, but you can save 15% if you buy them online 24 hours in advance. When we woke up and looked outside this morning though, it was pouring rain. So much so that a small lake had formed on our patio. Maybe booking 24 hours in advance wasn’t such a good idea…
As we pulled up to the house, we were greeted by Ian, Grammy, Grandpa, and lots of pink balloons.
Growing up, there were three movie series that I really connected with. The first was Indiana Jones, the second was Star Wars, and the third was Back to the Future. I could watch those VHS tapes over and over and never get tired of them.
Of all the Back to the Future movies, my absolute favorite was Back to the Future 2. I loved seeing the potential of what the future might bring. Now that it’s 2015, I’m ready for the flying cars and hoverboards!
I’ve known this date was coming for a little while, but I didn’t prepare for it as much as I would have liked. The hat I’ve owned for a while.
Our newest addition to the family is here! Welcome baby Alli!
How about the story behind the day she was born?

On October 16, 2015, Theresa and I welcomed our newest little flower to the bunch.
Allison Lynn Flowers was born at 1:24pm, and weighed 8 lbs 7 oz. She was 20.5 inches long.
She is named after two important women in our lives. The “son” part of Allison is a tribute to Theresa’s mom’s middle name Sun. Her middle name Lynn is after my mother’s middle name.
Both Theresa and Alli are doing great!
