Un-attended camera

Last night it appears that I was not properly watching my camera. Kelsea LOVES my little red point and shoot camera. She is often found hiding under a table with it in hand. It seems she was at it again last night. I truly think she had an accomplice. There is no way she could have taken some of these shots. The question is, Braeden or Mackenzi....or both, who was her assistant? Silly, silly kids!

Taco Tuesday

Yep, that's right, we're having tacos for dinner. So are Dana's family, and Laci's family, and Ryan's family (if he makes it home from work in time), and Aunt P. Everyone is at my house for dinner, then cake and ice cream! Tomorrow is Aunt P's birthday and we are celebrating today. I work tomorrow and NEVER know what time I'll get off of work.

Did I mention that the kids love cake? Well they do! This was a couple of weeks ago, we had cupcakes for desert.Update on Kitty, he was patiently waiting for Braeden, all warm and cozy! Braeden was so excited to see him!
This is a sweet picture too. Kelsea and Kenzi are napping together on Nana's bed. Joining them is Rocket, Nemo, and baby Melody. Good thing it's a king size bed!
Yesterday I was in the kitchen making the kids lunch, and looked over to see Kelsea doing this!
Do you have any window lickers in your family? Apparently we do! What's with these girls and windows?
Braeden has a great love for anything that flies. Here is a picture of him in a shuttle at the market.

Kitty's Sleepover

Dana and the kids were here visiting today. Kitty came with his favorite boy, Braeden. It seems that Kitty decided he wanted to spend the night here! Wow, he has never stayed here without his boy. Braeden was very worried when he noticed Kitty had escaped from the car. His mom assured him that Kitty could sleep with us and he would be warm and cozy. He was sitting by the dream sign thinking of the sweet dreams he was going to have. Here Kitty is sleeping with Boppa.

Giving some love to the boys too!

The last post was all about the girls. I think it's only fair to show the boys a little love too. . Two weeks ago I went with Laci to take the boys for their second half of their flu shot. They were such good little boys!

Jace is working on, and getting really good at, holding his pointer finger up to show he is almost "1". Look at these little guys, they truly are two peas from the same pod!!As I wrote before, Braeden turned five on New Years eve. I was asked to go to his 5 year old check up with him. You see, he was really MAD AT HIS MOM FOR MAKING HIM GO! So when I met them there he was all about sitting on my lap, having me go in with him for his shots, and me holding him when they drew his blood. It doesn't look like it but he was really scared. But being the big boy that he is, he did great! He had his blood drawn , three shots, and a T B test, everything he needs to go to kindergarten in August!...wait!!!! HOW DID THIS HAPPEN SO FAST?

Fancy Friday

Today is Fancy Friday, did you know that? Let me give you a little background. For Christmas Mackenzi and Kelsea got all the Fancy Nancy shazit! That's a grown-up Fancy word, don't you think? Oh, and it's all beautiful! So part of the gift was to have our fab-u-lous photographer, Stephanie, come and do a Fancy shoot with my Fancy pants granddaughters! What fun that was. We had all the Fancy stuff ready. We had flowers, jewels, mirrors, glasses, purses, shoes, dresses, boas, a vanity table, and we can't forget the lipstick!

Sometimes as hard as you try, it's just hard to be a lady........and be happy!
No matter what mood they are in, one thing is for sure....I love my Fancy little girls!
If you are in need of a photographer, contact Stephanie at G & M Images Photography. Hop on over and check out their website for more details.
I hope you are having a Fabulous Fancy Friday too!

Flashback - Fast Forward Friday

This flashback has to be explained. This was taken almost 22 years ago. We were in the process of buying our home and FHA had a whole list of things we had to do before they would fund a loan for us. One of the things was painting. So this is Penny and Ryan busy with preparations for the paint job we would do on that holiday weekend in May of 1987. We also replaced the windows.
This fast forward picture is our home today. Twenty some years later we replaced the windows again, as well as sandblasting and re- stuccoing the house.

TGI almost F!

Let me tell you after having almost 2 full months off of work, this week has kicked my butt! I worked in San Diego today. The drive home was horrible, way too many cars on the road. The sunset was spectacular though.
I actually have tomorrow off, TGIF. Saturday I am back in San Diego, then next week I only have to work in! Since I was up at 4:15 this morning, I'm off to bed! Go ahead, call me a wimp, it's okay....really! Goodnight!
