{Santa Monica}

I LOVE these two men

As a family we drove up to Pasadena to celebrate my nephew Crew's birthday. After the party we all wanted to go to Santa Monica for the day. We walked around the pier, took lots of pictures and let the kids ride the rides. Luke chose to ride the adult roller coaster because he was tall enough. He loved it! Then off to dinner at Juniors in Westwood. The day wasn't complete until we took the kids to "Diddy Riese". The ice cream & cookie sandwiches are the best! We all had a fabulous day being with family, I love days like this.

double digits.

While the kids were busy watching the movie, Paige and her friend Taylor thought it would be funny to put lots of make up on and pose for the camera. Silly girls!

Cody is 10 years old and I can't believe how fast he is growing. For Cody's birthday he wanted to have a movie night in our backyard. Ty put up a big blow up movie screen and we watched Night at the Museum 2. All the kids enjoyed the movie while eating hot buttery popcorn and movie candy. Cody didn't want a birthday cake instead he wanted to have all the kids make their own hot fudge sundaes with all the toppings. We all had a great evening celebrating Cody's birthday. He was very spoiled with all his money and gift cards he received this year, so he has been busy spending them.

thirty six.

I surprised Ty with his most favorite dessert "Mango Tart" from Pasta Pronto.

To celebrate Ty's birthday we went out to Jake's in Del mar with friends

Happy 36th Birthday babe! You are an amazing husband and father, we all adore you so much.

these are a few of my favorite things.

My kids make me smile. These pictures are some of my favorites from our family photo shoot back in October.

For Luke's 4th birthday party he wanted to have a circus party just like his brother Trey had. We had so much fun playing games, eating pizza, Caesar salad, chips, animal cookies & popcorn. I made Luke a clown cake to go with the theme. All the kids as always enjoyed the pinata and the treats that were inside. Luke had a great birthday celebrating with all his cousins and friends. For Luke's family birthday dinner he chose Pizza Nova so we could eat while watching a movie. We had a fabulous day! I can't believe my baby is 4.


I love you Luke because:

you are the BIGGEST helper

you have already learned how to earn your own money (daily lemonade & cookie stands) He is going to be a little entrepreneur just like his dad

you come up and tells me how much you LOVE me on a daily basis

you are obedient

I LOVE you most of all because you are my baby. Happy Birthday little man!
