just as I left it.

Fact: For the first 7 years of my life I lived in Lake Perris,
where trolleys ran right beside a field by my house.
I like to say I grew up on the tracks... because I did!
I collected rocks and spikes with my neighborhood friends Yvonne, Jose and Poowah.
I remember the last time going to the trolley museum with my Dad and his boy scout troop when I was 6 and haven't returned since. until now.
It wasn't crowded, busy or loud like I thought it might be.
It was just as I left it... quiet, quaint and charming.
I can't say many places from my childhood are the same. Modern technology, design and big crowds have taken over the once simple family outings my family used to take.
but not this.
how refreshing!

one room down

I love love love Christmas and the decorating that comes with it.
the inspiration for the nursery comes from my childhood.
I remember making Christmas countdown chains in grammar school and
my daddy reading Twas The Night Before Christmas to me and my sister Katie in our bunk-beds every Christmas Eve!
Now I have 2 more rooms to go!

We did it!

We did it! We made the 4 hour flight to and from Georgia and baby boy was amazing! Thanks for all the advice, nursing him on departure and landing helped so much.

As soon as we arrived everyone was all over my baby boy Charles III!
I must say it was so nice to have more time to get ready in the mornings and to eat a meal in one sitting with having all the helping hands and family to love on my boy!

Everyone holding my baby boy. I love family!

isn't he darling?

Thanksgiving Day with the Baggetts...
