Happy Birthday!

Happy Birthday Mema!!

Happy Birthday Mema!! We love you so much and miss you way too much!!! We are thinking of you today, and what a special Mom, Mom-in-law and Mema you are. You are so loving and sweet! Thanks for being you and being such a good example to us. I hope you know you are so loved and special! We wish we could give a big hug and kiss! Carter says "love you Mema, YOU ROCK" , Sawyer gives you a big slobbery kiss. Hope you have a great day..Happy Birthday!!

Even though this picture is old, I think it is so cute of mema and (some) of her "kiddies". One of Mema's favorite things is to be around her "kiddies".

Stay Calm...

This is my new Moto..."Keep Calm and Carry On". I found this fun, cute poster on Etsy and fell in love with it. This is perfect for a mom dealing with kids all day. It reminds me to just take a deep breath when I am about to loose it with Carter. It is actually right next to his room..perfect place. Carter is a sweet, sweet boy, but he has his moments when he likes to test mommy. You can get it in a variety of colors...what a cute way to remind you to cool it.

Our date to Disneyland..

I love this boy i having more fun than the boys?


Jungle Safari...ahh, the Pirana sprayed me!

A bugs life



Carter was so excited when I told him we were going to Disneyland and it was just going to be Carter and Mommy. He was so happy to get the full attention he has been missing. I got a babysitter for Sawyer and wanted to make it a day with just carter...and Kris(my sister), Mason and Jeff. Kris also got a babysitter for her little guy Owen. It was tons of fun taking the older boys on all the rides and being able to give them 100% attention. Carter was so sweet and loved every second of it. Carter and Mason had so much fun being with their uncle Jeff too. Jeff is always so good with his Nephews and goes along with what the boys want to do. Thanks Jeff for being so fun and always making them happy. We had tons of fun laughing and screaming on rides. We ended the night with lots of screams on the ferris wheel at California adventure. The actual cart turned as the ferris wheel turned. IT felt like the whole cart was going to roll right off the ferris wheel..Scarry but so fun!!

found gum in daddy's drawer.

We have been involved in the lovely task of potty training...Yeah for Carter. He is doing really well and very eager and happy to get his little bum up on the big boy toilet. His motivation....Carters prize box. We decorated a box together and he got to pick out prizes at the store to put in his box. He gets so excited to pick out a prize when he goes on the potty. So fun to see him proud of himself and jump for joy for his big accomplishments.

love you Poppy!

Carter and Sawyer got to see their Poppy for a couple of hours today! My Dad flew into San Diego for the day for business, so we met up with him in La Jolla to hang out and to have dinner. Carter was so excited to see his poppy for a little bit. We let carter play at the play center at UTC mall, and Poppy was so nice to buy carter a ticket for the mickey mouse jump house. Carter loved it so much!He was bouncing off the walls. We then went and had a yummy dinner at CPK together. Poppy had to leave right after dinner, it was short, but we were so glad we could spend time with him and give him big hugs and kisses. Carter says "thanks poppy for letting me jump..I love you".

Arizona trip

We went to AZ this weekend because Ashly and Bennett flew out from New York. We had tons of fun being with the family. Carter loves his cousins so much and had a blast being with them. The adults had fun going out while the kids stayed home with a babysitter. We went to Dinner and then played Rock Band. Pretty hilarious. That was the first time I had ever played it...and I am horrible at it. But, I had fun watching everyone. Jono was pretty funny..there is a video at the bottom if you want take a peak at the fun we had.
