This is how Sawyer was eating his lunch today before church. It was hilarious! He has been potty training this week. I can't believe the difference a few months has made. I need to remind myself that I need to wait with Ryder until 3 because both times I have tried earlier and it has been a disaster but around 3 it is SO much easier for me!!

Disney afternoon

These are in reverse order but you get the idea. Grammy and Leslie came out on Friday and we all went to Disneyland. It was so nice to have extra helpers and spend some time with them. My mom now does taxes so we don't get to see much of her this time of year. So it was nice to have them!!
Leslie got a new hat it was so cute.....really she is SO gorgeous and turning 16 in a few weeks!!! Of course we had to check out the Star Wars show. Noah LOVES it. I told him he most likely wouldn't get picked that he has already done it twice. But he she stands there so patient and raises his hand with out jumping up and down and has gotten picked everytime.

He fought Darth Vadar. The Jedi teacher even commented on Noah's sound effects while he was fighting Darth. It was hilarious!!!

We had a great day lots and lots of fun!!

Yes I realize there are a million pictures of Ryder like this but he LOVES having his picture taken. He actually cries if I pull out the camera and DON'T take one of him.
He cracks us up his new thing is making light saber noises like his big brother. He carries around his toys saying shh shhh. It is hilarious.

Sawyer and I Went with Noah's preschool class to the Grocery Store. The kids loved it!! Sadly I carried around the camera with out the memory card. But luckily I had my phone.

They decorated cookies, saw how the deli slicer works, watered produce, went throught the fridge and freezer. Stater Brothers did an awesome job!!

Thanks everyone for worrying about me. Today I wasn't dizzy so that is an improvement.

One last hurrah! Tomorrow marks the oh so DREADED start to BUSY season. I hate that Jeff has to work Saturday's. I know be grateful, but the Saturday's is especially hard for me. Anyway we wanted to enjoy the wonderful weather today. We headed to Balboa we rode across the ferry, Ryder was not happy to be stuck in the car. On the pier waiting for our table at Ruby's.
We got to sit on the roof, it was such a great day we could see all the way to Catalina and Palos Verdes.

This one HATES getting his picture taken. I had to climb under the jungle gym and it's not even that great of a shot.

On the Ferry. The boys LOVED this part.

It was a great way to spend the last day of a three day weekend.

Will U Be Mine??

Third annual Vday party with the kids. It is crazy, three years ago our group was about 12 kids. Look how little they were!! Fast forward threee years later and we had 25+ (and we were missing a lot) It is so crazy. I always STRESS way too much. And today when Jeff asked how it went I gave him a run down of all the things I thought could have been better. When he finally stopped me and said but did the boys have fun. And yes they DID!! Thats all that matters, who cares if it was chaos at moments. They had FUN. I love love love my friends. I am so lucky seriously who has a group of 12+ women who are all ROCKSTARS and I get to sit around and chat. AND that is ALL that matters!! Easter Egg hunt anyone??

We all know that Jeff loves him some Michael Jackson.....think Halloween. When the DVD of This Is It came out of course it was a purchase. The boys love to watch it. Noah is hilarious he loves to bust out his cool dance moves! Uncle Aaron you would be so proud!!
Here is ready for Smooth Criminal.
It is hilarious to watch him bust a move!

whats in a name

We have been really working on Noah's writing lately, we told him if he worked on his name writing and got really good we would let him pick out a new Star Wars guy. He worked really hard and has really improved. He picked out a droid at Target. And yes I bribe my children it works for me right now. I make them earn it though and Noah would tell you that his hand still hurts from the 30+ valentines he had to sign! =)

Rainy days + 3 boys= a long day. In my own opinion we have had FAR too many rainy days around here. I swear I could only live in a place with snow if I had a huge basement bc one more rainy day and I
will be buying a trampoline and putting it in the garage. Well there is an idea.

No Cut!

Sawyer HATES getting his hair cut. Too bad the poor kid has my genes and his hair grows fast and boy is it thick!! Jeff LOVES his thick hair. But on Wednesday I was done with the messy mess. So I took the clippers to it. He was ticked but bribery worked great. I let him pick out a treat at Target. He was in heaven. He even posed for a picture. He is such a fire cracker.

Early Celebration

After working all day Saturday to clean and fill up our dumpster Jeff and I went out for an early Valentines celebration. We went on a Gondola ride around Newport harbor. I told Jeff a year ago that I wanted to do this and I was so touched when he remembered. It was so fun to ride around the harbor looking at all the beautiful homes. The moon was extra bright and looked so beautiful.
They take a Polaroid of you before you go, Sorry for the horrible quality I then took it on my iPhone.

Afterwards we went to Cheesecake Factory it was so yummy I LOVED the 30th anniversary cheesecake. It was a great date night!! Much needed!! Thanks babe for such a great a wonderful date!! And thanks Grandma and Grandpa for watching the boys so we could have a great night!!

Long time no post, or should I say REAL post. I have had a few people email me making sure we were alive. And yes yes we are....thanks loyal followers! LAST week was crazy around here, Jeff and I were both hit hard with yet another sinus infection, we have had them once a month for awhile now....We are thinking we are either allergic to trees in our backyard OR we have mold. We will have to check into these because this is just ridiculous. Besides yucky sickness we have been cleaning and organizing. I wanted to get the house organized before busy season starts. We orded a dumpster and got to work. It is so nice to purge a lot of junk. I have some great things I want to do around here and I am so excited to be creative.
Before we got sick we headed out to Temecula to celebrate Grammy and Grampy's Birthdays! We ordered in our favorite Chinese place Peony's and had some cupcakes. It was a great LOW key night. I love my parents and I am so glad we got to celebrate there special day with them!! We love you guys!!
