Some days I miss this baby more than I can stand. I wonder what she is doing in Heaven right now.........

We took the kids to Rubys on the Huntington Beach pier tonight for dinner.
Jack building his car
Ethan pouting
Owen being cute as ever
Ava is addicted to the cherries you get when you order cherry diet coke. This is her eating the one that was in my glass. She grabbed it before the waiter even put my cup down.
And we ended the night at the happiest place on earth!

It's beginning to look a lot like VALENTINE'S DAY!
These decorations are a subtle reminder to Devin :)


Ethan had his annual eye doctor appointment. The good news is that his eyes aren't getting any worse. The bad news is that he needs new glasses. I haven't bought him a new pair since 2008. Can we say responsible kid for not breaking them??? They are pretty scratched up and getting a little to snug. So I shelled out the $300 for a new pair. Ouch. But hopefully these will last 3 years to. I'm always so sad watching him take the eye test. His left eye is so bad. He can only see three lines down :( I shouldn't be that surprised though since almost everyone on my side and Devin's side wear glasses. So far Owen and Jack both have 20/20 vision. Ethan is hoping Ava needs glasses so he's not alone.

Ethan was trying to look to sick to go to school. He went, and was fine.

This is what Ava's hair looks like when she sleeps in until 9:45! Which makes me happy because it means she's finally getting hair!

All tamed

Ava and Emma always amaze me with their technological skills. They are watching Dora on Devin's phone.

Jack drew this awesome picture of Devin skateboarding

And poor Sassy has chapped cheeks and a cold because of this dry windy weather.

Devin pretending to sleep. He is really tired though. Poor guy doesn't get Saturdays off.

Nana got 6 baby chicks today! She already has 6 chickens that lay white and brown eggs. These new chicks will lay green eggs and soon she will have 3 that will lay red eggs. There is nothing better than fresh eggs!

Bye Jack, have a good day at kindergarten and please don't bite anyone. Ok so the girl deserved it, but please don't do it again, it was kind of embarrassing. I love you!

3 boys in 1 room usually means there is a pretty big mess by the end of the day, but Owen is great at cleaning it up.

Hanging out after church. They are patiently waiting to eat dinner at Grammy and Papa Casey's house.

The end of a busy/ fun Saturday

Twin day at school. Ava was fine until I wanted a picture! Don't worry about Ethan, he was triplets with 2 of his friends. He ran off so fast at school I didn't get a picture :(

I'm going to try to post a picture everyday for a year. I think it's easier said then done, but it will make my blog book that I print out so cool. This is me and my kids as we pulled up to the school this morning to drop off Ethan and Owen. You can barely see Sass, but she's there in her pajamas and bed head. Don't worry she stayed in the car :)

Los Angeles Zoo

We bought passes to the zoo in the summer time so on New Years day we were bored and decided to finally use the passes again, but this time we were smart and bought all day tram tickets. Only $14 for all of us and it was worth it!
It was freezing cold that day so don't let the sun fool you. I have never been cold at the zoo, it's usually miserably hot. It's so much better when it's cold. All the animals were up and moving.
We always get stuck at the gorilla exhibit. They are fascinating to watch.

Happy 2011!

Waiting for the countdown

She was to sleepy to celebrate!


Jack got his light saber
Ava got a doll house, but she was so afraid of Santa that she wouldn't get out of bed. She told us to give all her presents to Owen. It took a lot of convincing and Daddy to carry her to the living room before she started to get excited. Then every time we came home that day she was afraid to go into the house because she just knew Santa would be in there. Poor thing!
Owen got a bb gun and Ethan got the Kinect for the xbox 360. It was a great day!
