Nikki's nieces

This is little miss "too hot to trot" Aimee. But Kristi don't worry, she is only 6! She is my little fashionista, AND she likes country music! I'm proud of her:)

Allison is 4 and she loves racecars and baseball and anything else her daddy likes. I love her to pieces.

Both girls live in Florida with my older sister and brother-in-law. My baby sister recently moved there too.
Grandma and Poppy Aboussleman also live close by. Almost the whole family are Floridians now!

Christmas with the Calls

Christmas morning. All the little kiddies so so excited to see what Santa brought them. [Missing:Phil]

The boys. Phil is the tallest. If he was there he would make the rest look like munchkins.

Girls quite obviously have more fun:)

This is one of our many fancy moves. We are basically professional dancers.

San Diego

Jo and Kim.
Joanna now lives by the beach in San Diego, her and I met Freshman year in the San Diego State Dorms, and proceeded to be RAs together the next year and roommates 2 years after. She is the most free spirited woman I know. She has finally met the man of her dreams and is the happiest I have ever seen her:)
Kim and I also met Freshman year in college through an organization called The Navigators. We were driving to La Paz Mexico (a 20 hour drive from San Diego) and she slept on the floor in the van nearly all 20 hours. Instantly I knew we would be friends forever. We were roommates 2 out of the 4 years in college and if her husband Joel would let us, we probably still would be.

This is Jordan. She is my female soul mate. Never have I met anyone who understands me more than her. (Shane doesn't count- he's a boy). We met our sophmore year in college and have been bff ever since. She lives in Maryland but we still remain the best of friends. I'm convinced she should move back to California.

The group. [Missing: Jordan (male), Joel, and Shane.] Jordan (female) was the only one lucky enough to get her guy in the picture. His name is Paulie.

This is Sacha. She just turned 12, this is her tribute to Janis Joplin.


These faces are quite typical.
Ryan, Shane's roommate and our friend, captured us (with his exceptional photography skills) in our normally weird state.
Ryan, sorry I stole this from your blog.

This is us. Taken by our Burbank family at our Burbank home. We love the Merchains. Especially Rubes:)
