..I couldnt sleep so i thought id do some scrapbooking ♥ and give an update on my hubby! Matt had an interview with the Oroville Police Department last Monday. A few days ago, we got a call from the Department's background investigator. He informed Matt that he did very well on his interview and that he would like to meet with him and start his background investigation process. (Which is great!) So it looks like were making another trip to Oroville tomorrow :0) Matt was told in his interview that they are looking to hire 3 new officers...So keep your fingers crossed!

Fun With MOM ♥

My mom came down to Chico for a little visit and we had so much fun! She stayed with us for a few days and then drove up to Oregon to visit my sister Tanya.It was nice to have a few days off from work and spend time with my madre! Here are some exciting things that we did together :0) WARNING: we took LOTS of pictures ♥ First things first, mom needed a haircut. Here she is after i worked my magic ;0)

My mom enjoys puzzles so we brought one to the park and put it together while we relaxed under the big trees and listened to the woodpeckers chirp.

...the finished product :0)

After that we went to visit the kitties at the animal shelter. They were SO cute!
...Good thing mom was there to tell me 'no' when i wanted to take one home ;0)

We looked at Antiques at my mom's 'favorite' consignment store in Paradise then we drove up to Paradise Lake. We were basically the only ones out there and it was so peaceful and quiet.

My mom taught me how to loom knit (my new addiction) while we sat on a wooden bench enjoying the scenery and the company ♥.

On day three Matt and i decided to take mom to Lassen Volcanic Park! Here are some pics from our adventure! Here we are at the park visitors center :0)

Vote YES on Proposition 8!

If it wasnt for Proposition 8, i probably wouldn't even vote this year because im not impressed with EITHER of the Presidential Canditates. However, i feel as though this proposition will affect our lives as much if not more than the next President will. If you arent familiar with Proposition 8 please click on the link that i provided earlier in this post and you will see why it is SO IMPORTANT to get out there and vote YES on PROP. 8!

We ♥ you BIRTHDAY boy!

PLEASE forgive us for being late..We love you SO much and hope you had a wonderful Day! Wish we could have been there! xoxoxoxo
