2007 INO Adopt A Family


Every year each INO store adopts a family and provides for them a Christmas that they otherwise would've never had. It's all done anonymously, so the family has no clue as to who is helping them. The associates donate money, canned food, gift cards, etc and then we deliver them to the family. This was on Saturday, and it was so fun to see the faces of these kids. Not to mention the mom - she cried she was so grateful. This is one of the things I love best at this time of year.

Austin was a little reluctant taking his present!

These poor folks thought we were open and were hoping to get a 8:00 in the morning!

Cool skateboard!


I thought this was pretty cool - I should've got a close up though. This skater kid and his friend came into the store the other day and I had to take a pic of his board. The bottom of it is completely covered in INO bumper stickers! Love it!

Well, here she is! I know, I know, I can't even read these things, but let's try...Top left - a shot of her profile. Top right - a shot of her face (you can kinda see the eye sockets). Bottom left - no clue! Bottom right - a shot of her bum with nothing in between those little legs! We're so excited!

O Christmas Tree, O Christmas Tree!


My husband loves pictures! Can't you tell by that face?!

Yet again-oh this is so fun untangling all these little metal hangy thingys.

I'm enjoying it though!

These are our INO ornaments - I love them!

We're getting a little more excited here...

The finished project!

we didn't find out :(


This morning at 10am the hospital called us and told us they needed to reschedule our ultrasound appt cause there was an emergency with the tech that does them. We were pretty disappointed needless to say, but luckily they had an appt. for tomorrow and we are both off work still. So tomorrow at 1:45 is it! (hopefully they don't call us again in the am!)

Alas the Christmas pictures are up! These are from our annual INO Christmas party at the Disneyland hotel. The company flies us out and puts on this fabulous party every year. The theme this year was Caribbean Christmas!
