ending 2010 with an adventure.

ending 2010 and starting 2011 with an adventure.
a concrete jungle adventure.
we camped out in the streets of pasadena for the rose bowl parade.

 bro-in-law R and my sis C got there at 7am.
me and christian took the "2nd shift" and watched the place at 2pm.

there was a LOT of these going on around colorado.

 awww C + R = love declarations ;)

and the sun began to set... and it began to get COLD.

roughing it by going to target and ordering hot coffee and waiting for midnight =]

 around 10pm...things started getting a lil crazy and messy.
silly strings, marshmallows and tortillas flying everywhere =]

 happy new year!!!

silly strings and vuvuzelas.

aaaaand we decided to become "voluntary homeless people" on the last day of the year

goodnight and goodbye 2010.
hello 2011.

12.29.10 choosing joy

Today, I had to fight for my joy. My heart was heavy and my joy level was low. I had to remind myself that joy was a state of mind that I need to choose to have, instead of waiting for joy to come to me.

My joys for today:

#100joys: oatmeal and green tea for my heart.

#100joys: ferrero. get thee behind me.
ok, maybe just one ;)

#100joys: watching ceasar milan. the dog whisperer.
i want to be a dog whisperer too.
he is awesome possum.

#100joys: look...i am a dog whisperer.
they are asleep.
all is calm.

#100joys: portos cheeserolls.
un-joy fact: did you know that they're 400 calories EACH?
sorry to burst your happy portos bubble.
#100joys: listening to my son tell me about the
power and energy of each pokemon.

feels when i talk to him about the bible too.
