This Old House

I wish that i had taken some before and after pictures just so you could really get the full effect of how far this house has come but alas i did not. But for those of you who have been to my house before you know how BAD it truly was!! Lets just say i basically did not like my house for the first 7 years i lived here but now that its done i LOVE it. Its so pretty and inviting now and of course now that its done...im leaving it:( All i have to say is whoever rents it better love it and treat her well!

So there she is (minus a few of the rooms). I still have a couple of minor things to fix but its pretty much done. We've come a long way baby;)

Dancing Queens

Its that time of year again...the Del Mar Fair! My girls performed again this year and both did such a good job. Charlie danced to the song from Sleeping Beauty and Zippity Doo Dah and Sophia danced to Under the Sea from the Little Mermaid. Their favorite part of the whole thing? I let them wear a little bit of makeup and they feel so grown up and pretty;) I think their pretty cute if i do say so myself!

Rats with wings!

I HATE seagulls! While at the beach yesterday one of them nasty creatures swooped down and grabbed my half eaten sandwich right out of my hand and flew off with it! I felt a little silly when i jumped up and started chasing it because really like i was going to eat the thing now. But if i couldn't have my sandwich then neither could he! So next time your at the beach guard your food with your life!!

family pictures

We recently went and took pictures with the whole fam bamly and i'm SO happy with how they turned out:) I LOVE the color combination! If anyone is in need of some family pictures i would HIGHLY recommend giving Heidi Robbins a call. She was AWESOME! She did a great job and was very patient with our crazy group;) Thanks Heidi!!

These were just a few of them there were SO many to choose from!

my kids play on the freeway

This past weekend they had a grand opening for the 52 freeway where it connects to the 67 which i know sounds kind of cheesy but we decided to go check it out. They had free shirts, food, entertainment, and activities for the kiddos. It was crazy crowded! Apparently no one in east county has anything better to do than to go hang out on the freeway. We got some fun pictures and I cant wait for the freeway to finally open since it will make my twice daily drive out to Sophia's school SO much faster!

were you scared?..no..do you want to ride again?..NO!..

I took Sophia on the tower of terror at Disneyland. She claimed she wasn't scared but i think this picture shows otherwise;)

well maybe not as scared as the kid in the corner!!!

Fancy Charlie

Charlotte is pretty into the Fancy Nancy books right now so we decided to throw a Fancy Nancy birthday party for her this year. It was crazy but i think the kids had fun so that's all that matters, right?? We had super cute decorations thanks to my mother and sister Michal. There were sunglasses, bead necklaces, and feather boas because you just can't be fancy without those. We had TONS of candy and tasty cupcakes so what better way to work off all that sugar than with a jumper in the back room. It was perfect! All in all i think everyone had fun but note to self DO NOT schedule to do a wedding the morning of a birthday party EVER again. I was pooped! Charlotte had a blast with all her little friends and it really was fun planning a Fancy Nancy party:) Thanks to everyone who came and helped Fancy Charlie celebrate her birthday this year!

charlotte paige

three years ago today you came into this world. you were so eager to be here that you came out all on your own. even though the nurse told me not to push and wait for the doctor you had plans of your own and without any pushing you popped right out. you've been happy just to be here ever since. i love your smile, your cute freckles, and how your always trying to make me laugh and smile. i love how you always take mommy's side when daddy's teasing me, and how you try to make funny faces and be silly to make me laugh if you think you've hurt my feelings. it makes my day when you tell me "mommy your my best friend." your a sweet, happy, fearless, spunky, and fun little girl and i can't imagine my life or our family without you! happy birthday charlie paige i love you with all my heart baby girl!

Bulletin Board

I was recently called to be the primary secretary and as the secretary part of my calling is to decorate the bulletin board. There's a website i got the basic idea from but of course i had to embellish! Thanks to my sister Michal who helped me out with her nifty cricut (i seriously need to get one of those!) and my sister Whitney who spent most of her day off helping me put it together. I was skeptical on how it was going to turn out but i think it turned out pretty cute if i do say so myself! See for yourself;)
