More catch up

A Mother's Day afternoon after church, an obsession with a fedora hat, a spring dance recital, and another goodbye to Grammie and Papa as they leave for another mission to the Philippines.

Catch up

A little David Archuletta at a Blaze game, Easter, and Kohen as a girl? I had to post this one because I think he really looks like a girl. :)

I'm keepin' this one!

Yes, this picture is for real! This was taken last summer while we were in California. Here's proof that they really do love each other! Priceless.

Fun in the Sun

I've been putting off this post, because it means I have to go through all the pictures and only wish I could be there again. We finally went on a cruise, and we can't wait for the next one! It's been on our to do list for quite sometime, so when you get a good deal...you do it! Thanks to my sis. :) Marc and I went with our good friends Shellee and Mike. We flew to Florida earlier this month, and our cruise went to Key West and the Grand Cayman. Um...there are no words. So much fun, so many memories, and I'm so glad we did it. Well, I could have left out swimming with the stingrays, but I need to live a little. We took a boat out to the ocean to a location called stingray city. Let me preface that these stingrays still have their stingers, we had to sign a death waiver, and our tour guides were island boys with missing teeth! As we pull up, many of the excursion boats made their passengers wear lifejackets, and they weren't allowed to hold or kiss the stingray (for 7 years good luck). Ours on the other hand put them on our back...even if you were scared out of your mind like me! He tells us we can scream as loud as we want, just DON'T JUMP UP AND DOWN! If you had a slimy stingray rubbing up against your leg with his "snake-like" tail, you would want to jump up and down too. And when you have a 6'3" black guy from "the hood" (literally) screaming and grabbing your arm, your butterflies only intensify. It was by far the scariest 10 minutes of my life. Poor Shellee fed one of the stingrays and it made her bleed because he sucked so hard! The only thing going through my mind is RIP Steve Erwin, RIP! So on to better stories. Snorkeling was so fun, the water was clear blue, and being away from snow and cold was a nice bonus. It was a much needed break from the craziness of our life, and I miss every minute of it. Back to laundry, time-outs, whining, dishes, and the bitter cold of the winter. I love my life!!

Leprechaun Obsession

Kael is obsessed, and he won't stop talking about them. I had to blog what he told me when he woke up. "Mom, I am going to catch a leprechaun today, duct tape him to the wall, and steal all his gold! And you know what I will buy with the gold? A ladder, and a mustang. I will be rich!!" He is so random, but I love his excitement for holidays. The boy will not stop talking about leprechauns. I think he believes in leprechauns more than he believes in Santa. He spent all afternoon outside yesterday setting traps to catch one. Send one our way if you catch one. It will make his day.

Disneyland 2010

Somebody turned 4

Can you believe she is 4? I can't! We celebrated her birthday with a "cooking" party. The girls made their own pizza, decorated their own cupcake, played pin the chef hat on the birthday girl, and all in their stylish hats. Aliyah is finally the proud owner of zuzu pets. Her wish list consisted of zuzu pets, legos, and a barbie CAR. Can you tell she has 2 brothers? She LOVES birthdays, and keeps asking me if it is still her birthday.

A glimpse of Disneyland

Too many pictures. I will have to make a long boring video. In the mean time, is there anything greater than making your little girl happy? (In my case, yes, because she is a grouch 75% of the time.) Here's a picture of her running to the castle when we first got to D-Land. Then, waiting in line to meet Minnie Mouse. She literally was giddy. Love it!

Comet...it makes your mommy mad!!

Yes, I was wasting my time on blasted overstock looking for a new rug. Once I realized I had drowned out the noises of my children, I suddenly become aware of a swishing sound. I look to my left, and then to my right. Heaven forbid me to get off my booty! This is what I found. The swishing sound was him rubbing his hands back and forth through the powder (as you can see). And not an ounce in his mouth. I guess we'll never know if it really does make your mouth turn green. We have our hands full people. Even my 6 and 3 year old were appalled at our discovery. "We would never do that mom! Bad Bubba!"

Birthday Boy!

Our Bubba is 1!!!

I can't believe he is 1. All day I just wanted to hold him and baby him, and take it all in. Of course he had other ideas for how he wanted to spend the day. Why do they grow up so fast? My baby is no longer a baby. Happy Birthday Kohen! Stay tuned for Birthday pictures.
