Okay - so, kate and M are officially best buds. they're always together!!! i'm so jealous...:) but glad for M 'cause she's getting extra attention. but she's so spoiled now- she growled at kate the other night because they were sleeping and kate moved her legs and accidentally shifted M a little bit. unbelievable... so we went to the beach today!! it was 78deg and fabulous- it was M's first time at the beach:) it was a little warm for her but she had a lot of fun. we went to half moon bay again because we love it so much. the drive up there is so pretty and the beaches aren't crowded and people camp there and it's just so much fun. we're definitely taking emily there when she comes to see us. so- ha ha ha to all of you guys in the midwest driving through snow right now. we may never come back!:) hope everyone has a good week. my friend brandie is flying in to sacramento on thursday so we're going to be there to meet her when she gets off the plane- i'm so excited!
