Cool tricks

Of course my daughter would like the weirdest cartoon on TV called Yo Gabba Gabba. They have a section called cool tricks that she gets these ideas from, and this is one of the tricks she learned. I was literally holding my camera when she said, "Look what I can do Mommy!"

Cabbage patch head

First of all, yes, he really is THAT white. Our little babe needs a tan. Please disregard the fact that he is 1/4 Filipino. Anyway, I was cutting up some cabbage for dinner one night, and I couldn't resist.

An inside joke

We have a little inside joke with the kids. Kael and Aliyah are obsessed with mustaches. Ever since they saw the Grinch where Jim Carey has a mustache as a baby, they have hoped ever since that Kohen would have one too. Well, daddy made their dream come true. He brought home fake mustaches for all to enjoy. Too funny. I had to post this picture of Kohen.

A Blast from the Past!

What do you get when all 5 siblings meet up for a weekend getaway? Way too much fun. We all met up in Portland to attend a cousin's wedding in Washington. All 5 of us + Kohen, piled in Aaron's SUV and headed north. It was a 4 hour drive, so you can imagine the conversation that went on. So many memories, and lots of "Remember when...?". In addition to the constant laughter, we enjoyed yummy food, and catching up with relatives we haven't seen in years. Especially an uncle that reminds me so much of my own dad, it's scary! It was a trip to remember, but it was good to come home to my cute little family anxious to see me and the babe. After all these years, we all have separate crazy lives. It was fun to go back and be reminded of where I came from. I wouldn't be the person I am today if it wasn't for the example of my 4 older siblings. Love you guys!
