Here We Go Again....

Once again we are moving....not by choice either. The current home we are renting has gone up for sale. I had to deal with agents and their clients tromping around our "home" for weeks. It's hard to keep a house super duper clean with four kids......and let's face it...who really cleans their house every single day of the week. Not me! Anyhoo, I had got word that there was an offer, but this is a short sale, so really anyone can offer more and so on. I didn't want to deal with anymore agents walking through so I kindly asked them to stop coming. Whew....one less thing not to worry about. Next was finding another rental. That can be good and bad. Some people don't respect their properties and the homes are trashed. We did end up finding one that fit for us, (with some stained carpets, but our options out there were sparse). I have been packing, organizing, and packing some more. I think from all the moving we've done, I should open my own moving service.....what do u think?!! We get the keys next week and the only good part of this all is....I get to decorate again!! Always fun for me. And yes, the boys stay in the same school which would be another good thing, right! Well, there's one thing to say about all this moving......It keeps me busy.

20 months......

I wish time could stand still just so I can enjoy her at this age a little longer.
Don't get me wrong...I look forward to the days that we go shopping together, I do her make-up or hair for her prom, her wedding day, and the day she welcomes her first child. But right now I want to just keep her the way she is.
Kady at 20 months:
loves to dance to any jingle or song
sings "itsy bitsy spider" & "twinkle little star"
loves juice, blueberries, melon, asparagus, apples, pizza and pasta
loves to play with "Doedy"(Logan)
loves her baby dolls, (plays the little mommy)
LOVES shoes...hers, mine, and everyones!
she has no fear, loves to climb
loves to pick coo-coos (lint) from in between her toes
loves being outside
gives good kisses

Uncle Visit......

Kady got to meet her "great" Uncle from Texas this past weekend. At first she was shy, started to cry a bit, but after she warmed up she couldn't get enough.

Spring Break.....

When the kids get Spring Break, so does dad. We took a few days and went up to Tahoe to enjoy the snow. As you can see, the kids were excited about wearing their boots.

This is where we stayed.......Thanks Uncle Kerry!



Jake's first time in the snow and loving it!


We had snow ball fights....






(Kady's first time in snow)






Sledding time......


Kady got tired from all the fun.


But the boys just kept truckin on!




...And daddy even crashed into a tree.

Such a gorgeous day in Tahoe!





Driving back home from a great 3 days.

My Love for Gio......

This is Giovanni. He is my "second" cousin. The first baby for my cousin Paola whom I love like a sister. This was my first meeting with Gio and it brought me to tears. To see my cousin with her first baby was so beautiful......she is a mommy and I couldn't be more happy for her. When I held him, I fell in love immediately and didn't want to let go. He reminded me so much of my boys when they were babies. I held him till he fell asleep and it just melted my heart! I can't wait to see him again!!



Easter Morning....

My kids still believe in the magic of the "Easter Bunny". Every Easter morning, they wake up and start the search of their hidden baskets filled with goodies that the Easter Bunny had left them. (Easter Bunny went to town this year with extra gifts!)
Kady was shy about her basket. She would peek around the corner to see it and then hide again.

She finally decided to see what all the fuss was about.
Ohhhhhhhh.........look at all the goodies!




Look at Jake's face..hahaha....always a little clown!!!
