WOW, just WOW

Yep, this might just be the longest I have neglected this blog - bleck!!!
I am alive, we are alive ... after over a week of some one sick we are (hopefully) making our debut back into the real world tomorrow.
In the meantime, my little inquirer turned SIX three days ago, yep, SIX ... since when did SIX become so mature?! The poor guy came down with a nasty little bug on his birthday and several birthday plans had to be postponed ... but the best part, extra time with Mommy and Daddy ... especially all that extra time playing Skylanders with Daddy! These boys are hooked!

One hundred pennies

Yes, I know, I have not been blogging ... for a LONG time!

Summer is coming to an end and I am not sure if that is a good thing. Our mornings are about to start earlier and our days will end later. We are all sure to sleep well every night!

I am going to miss our summer days of playing around the house and not being in a rush to get any where. I am going to miss my constant chatter all day long with my soon to be Kindergartener . Although something tells me the chatter is not going to stop?!

I am reminded of a funny conversation with him last week. L has always loved Lottery tickets. The ones you scratch off to reveal if you won any money. I am pretty sure he gets this gene from my family as I am quite certain my Grandma played the lottery up until she passed and you can bet the rest of my family is still playing. L had won $2 from a scratcher and was waiting patiently for Daddy so he can cash it in. We went back and forth about how it was actually $1 profit rather then $2 even though, yes, she would in fact give him $2 for the ticket (but reminded and explained it orginally cost him $1 so he technically only won $1). After explaining this to his 5 1/2 year old mind he exclaimed, "I am still happy I won, a dollar is still a lot of money, right?". My response, "well, not really." He then very quickly and admantly responded, "WHAT??? A dollar is ONE HUNDRED pennies, ONE HUNDRED is A LOT!". A couple minutes later DH returned to take him to CVS to cash in his lottery ticket. After explaining to DH the conversation L and I just had DH said, "That's great. You gotta love a man who understands the value of a dollar!".

Happy (belated) Easter

Making this a new family tradition ... a family picture in the courtyard at our church after Easter Mass. This shot was done on purpose. I have always remember last year's picture: it has become my mental picture of our family last year. I wanted to see *one year forward*. I like what I see. Our lives are blessed.

Oh, note to self, don't have L wear the same shirt two years in a row. Especially if you plan on doing this every year. LOL!!!

Spring Fling in Full Bloom

Easter is upon us and we are in full bloom with celebrations. Last weekend, fun at the Irvine Regional Eggstavaganza with Grammy and Papa. Is it possible to be loved more then these kiddies?! I don't think so!

Then ended our weekend with our Annual Palm Sunday celebrations with Godparents and God-siblings complete with their very own Easter Egg hunt.

Spring is in the air, love is in bloom!

Alone Date Day with Mommy & Daddy

I truly enjoy my time at Treasured (Rick Warren's Saddleback Church's version of MOPS). I go once I week and always feel uplifted afterwards. It is there that I felt encouraged to periodically plan one on one fun time with each of our 3 kids. Yesterday we did just that with our Little Miss Middle, E. And what a treat for us ... enjoying Disneyland through 3 year old!!!
