I always feel a bit depressed when Christmas is over, but the days after Christmas this year did not disappoint. Carley and her family came back into town, and it is always a blast when they are there.

Carley is a miracle worker. She somehow got Tatum to take a binky! Tate loves it now, and it keeps her quiet and happy - I couldn't be happier.
The Shumways came into town for a few days, and we had a blast with them. They are the best! We spent a day at Pismo Beach riding ATV's. It was pretty much one of the funnest things I've ever done.
Of course Chloe couldn't ride on them, but she was perfectly satisfied just sitting on them

I love my little Tate. What a trooper.
The whole group
Chloe was absolutely exhausted. Of course she just crashed on the way home.
And then, on New Year's Day, this sexy man turned 30! We did breakfast in bed, went out to lunch, and shopping, then he played basketball for a couple hours, then we had a party complete with pizza, games, and brownies.

For the first time since Tate was born, Danny and I went on a date while Denise watched the girls. We went to see Life of Pi in 3D, and it was such a treat to be alone! And the movie was awesome. Thank you, Mom! You're the best.
Chloe loves Tate and is always asking to hold her
We were easily convinced to stay an extra day before heading back to Phoenix. So we went shopping and to the beach for one last time...
What a fun trip. We miss everyone already! Now, back to our real lives of Danny studying at school 24/7, and me being a single mom... the glamorous life a med student!
