My Girl is a Tween! When Did that Happen?

Kenzie is so grown up. I can't believe how beautiful she has become. I love watching her grow and develop her own ideas and style. She is such a great daughter...and so, so cute! I sure do love this girl.

Kenzie: A Double Digit The Big 10!

Pedicures All Around

We celebrated Kenzie's 10th birthday by having some friends over and painting toenails. Everyone had a great time.
Kenzie decided on pink and purple cupcakes instead of a regular cake. I thought that was a great idea!

She Did It!

Megan asked me to make her a pink cake with pink candles. She was so excited!!! She kept asking me if I had bought the candles yet. I assured her that it was handled. I did get the candles and she was happy.

Time To Blow Out Those Candles

Happy Birthday Mei Mei!!!

My girl is 3 years old now. Megs is getting so big. We had a family party for her and invited Jared, Jen and Kim. It was a lot of fun.

Happy 8th Birthday Gavin!

Gavin turned 8 on Sunday, Feb. 28th. He had a blast eating cake and spending time with his family. I'm so glad he's part of our family. I love that boy so much!!!

Gavin and his Man friend

These two are more alike than they care to acknowledge. Our friend Jared and Gavin both have a mischevious nature about them. Can you see it in thier eyes?
Jen was a sport and held Laney while I took care of documenting Gavin's birthday. They were great to come hang out at the crazy house for a while. Thanks guys. We love you.

R.I.P. Lilly

We were watching a friend's dog this weekend and somehow the dog got into the rabbit's cage. There was a struggle, and in the end Lilly had a broken neck. We had to put her down, but not before Kenzie asked us to take a picture of her and her beloved rabbit. As a parent, your heart aches for your child when something like this happens. Kenzie was very upset, but she realized that the dog was just being a dog. Lilly is buried next to Gavin's frog out in the backyard. Although sad, it's a necessary event in our lives. We need to teach our children that they will experience loss sometime in their lives, but that you deal with your feelings and move on. Needless to say, Kenzie bares no ill will toward the dog and even cuddled with her on the couch after the incident.

My sister and me

I found these two in the kitchen. They were cuddling and laughing. It was so cute, and for those of you who have multiple toddlers, it was a rare occurance.

Is Organic Better?

I tried out an organic produce co-op with a friend. I got 17 types of food for $22. I think it was worth it. the produce was local and really fresh. It was pretty cool and tasty.

Happy Birthday Laners

"Look mom, I'm so big!" That's right, Laney turned "1" on December 30th. It's also her daddy's birthday. I can't believe this year is over. I'm looking forward to so many fun times with my baby girl. She makes this family so happy. We have been blessed to have Laney with us. Mommy loves you Laners.
Baby girl on her birthday.
"This cake tastes pretty good."
"Now I'm getting into this cake stuff."
"I need a bath mom!"
"I'm so done with this mom. Pick me up!"
The girls posing for me one Sunday. They are so gorgeous!!!! Where's Gavin? He doesn't like to have his picture taken that often....obviously!

Pretty in Pink

Baby girl Laney in her dress that my friend Patricia made for her. It was too cute.


Gavin apparently has some aquatic traits. He had an extra tooth behind his two front teeth. The dentist affectionately referred to it as his "sharktooth", and the name stuck!! Unfortunately this extra tooth was pulled in late December 2009. We will miss you sharktooth. By the way, Gavin was a champ. They didn't have to sedate was me that needed the happy gas!!
