Fireworks, Pools, and Gymnastics in July

Wednesday, October 6th, 2010

This summer I decided to take Grace out of preschool so that we could spend more time with family and save money as well. Grace was excited to start off her summer vacation with Independence Day. We invited some family and friends over for a bbq at our house. Grace knows how to party! So […]

June 2010

Wednesday, September 8th, 2010

Gracie had a fun start to her summer vacation. Like her brother Cole, she got to attend her cousin Madeline’s birthday party. She had a cute puppy dog theme including a giant puppy dog jumper that Grace couldn’t wait to go crazy in. There was also a water gun game that the kids got to […]

Easter Egg Hunt and Princess Dresses

Thursday, May 20th, 2010

Hey Grace! Cole told me what he got from the Easter bunny. What did he bring you this year? Awesome, a hula hoop. That Easter bunny sure knows his stuff. Papa and Yaya are pretty good too when it comes to gifts. That Scooby Doo lunch box is groovy. Grace looked so beautiful this year […]

Marble Eggs

Wednesday, May 19th, 2010

What does a 4 year old do first when preparing for Easter? That’s right, color lots of eggs. Grace helped out with preparing the color cups. She was super careful when she dropped the eggs into the color cups. No breaks. After dropping in the eggs she waited patiently for them to be perfectly colored.  […]

Kiss Me I’m 1/16th Irish

Sunday, May 2nd, 2010

Last month Grace’s school had a St. Patty’s Day party for the kids. It was also a classmate’s birthday so her parents had a birthday party there too. What a great idea. I just might do that for Grace this year. Grace took a picture with some of her classmates, including the birthday girl. They […]

Hopscotch, Monkey Bars, and Hula Hoops

Thursday, April 22nd, 2010

Those three things are Grace’s new obsessions.  She absolutely loves playing hopscotch with anyone who will join her.  One rainy afternoon Daddy created a hopscotch template for her in our house using masking tape. Grace was in heaven. Cole joined in on the fun too. He just liked all the jumping. She’s also learning how […]

Pic-i-nic Party

Friday, March 19th, 2010

Hey Boo-boo. It’s a pic-i-nic party with Papa and Yaya. It’s a goodly bunch having lunch. It’s cookie time. Down the hatch, but natch. Ok, those were some Yogi Bear quotes but we really did have a picnic party with Yaya and Papa in Ventura. It was a beautiful day outside perfect for a pic-i-nic. […]

Annual Passes Rock!

Tuesday, March 9th, 2010

We recently went to Disneyland again to take advantage of our passes.  It was a spur of the moment trip this time.  We planned to cover the areas we didn’t make to last time like Critter Country and Tomorrowland. The highlight of this trip was that Grace got to meet a few characters. She’s always […]

You are Sweet, Valentine

Monday, March 8th, 2010

Ah yes, Valentine’s Day was last month.  Grace didn’t really understand the concept that it’s a made-up holiday named after a Saint that no one really knows much about but who cares.  You get lots of hearts, candy, and love. She was really looking forward to making her friends at school Valentine cards.  She’s still […]

Fuzzy the Bear

Monday, March 1st, 2010

For Grace’s birthday she received a Build-A-Bear gift card.  We recently took her to find and build her very own stuffed bear. After looking at their huge selection of animals, she picked this fuzzy pink bear. But it still needed to be stuffed. Off to the stuffing station. There she helped the worker stuff the […]
