california thanksgivng

We just got back from a trip to California that seemed way too short!  Isabel loved seeing her family and we loved being outside in 70 degree weather every day.  Unfortunately I forgot my camera, but had my new iphone, which got a few pics.

Here we are fresh off the plane to Cali.  We weren't too happy about paying for her seat, but enjoyed having a row to ourselves.  And Isabel was just perfect on both rides - on the way back she just read books and watched tv, then when we landed said "airplane fun!"

Trying on grandma's makeup.

At the Santa Barbara Zoo.

Hamming it up when I asked her to say "cheese"

Checking out some animals.

With Grandma Esther, dad, and Aunt Marilyn. 

Izzie loved seeing her cousins Cami and Alex - here they are being silly in the bed.

Izzie loves "dip it", as you can see by it all over her face.

First time letting me paint her nails.

Showing them off to Grandma.

We went to the beach at Oxnard Shores.

Pic in her cute doggie dress.

Izzie got to see lots of dogs on this trip - Buster, Gilly, Aesop, and then was introduced to Stan/Laura's new puppy "Little Elvis."

She even tried to be a dog by climbing into Buster's crate.

We had a great trip!!!

Playing in the leaves

Izzie had fun playing outside in the leaves with her dad this week!
Helping dad rake the leaves.... 

Before jumping inside!

First haircut, snow, and plastic horse riding!

Izzie got her first haircut this week!!  She hasn't had a lot to cut up until this point, and we really only trimmed it - so she still has a bit of a mullet.  :)

She was a little hesitant, but once she got a spray bottle to spray me with, she was happy.

It snowed a lot and a little early in the season.  Luckily it didn't put our power out for long.  Isabel had forgotten snow from last year, and was excited to play in it!

We went to the Discovery Center, and Isabel found the plastic horse.  She found the hat, sat on top, and proceeded to yell "yee-ha!" over and over.
