Madison’s 1st Birthday

  Madison you are ONE years old!! Where has the time gone?!
We celebrated your birthday on your birthday, Sunday July 15th. We decided to do something small for you with just the family since we were heading out to Vegas early the next day.
You had a fun time running around and playing. You enjoyed opening up your gifts and playing with some of the new toys you got! When it came to eating the cake you really didn’t chow down like I thought you would, you kinda just stared at the cake and touched it a few times.
Madison, you are so loving to your sisters. When either Raychel or Oceana is crying you run up to them and give them hugs and kisses. You are a sweet heart! You want to keep up with them on whatever they do.
Oh, Mad… you do have a feisty side! Boy, do you not let anyone pick on you! You fight back- hahaha! Even when I tell you no or I take something away from you, you get so mad that you pinch me! I have no clue were this side of you came from ( I think dad lol ). Boy am I going to have my hands full with you!
Madison, besides this feisty side of you… I see that you are one smart girl!! You like coloring at such a young age, 1!! and you hold your pencil/coloring crayon like your supposed to! You’re  a climber… you climb everything even Raychel’s latter and you make it all the way to the top of her bed all by your self. Which is very scary for me, because I do not want you falling off. I hide the latter under oceana’s bed every day. Madison, you also try to jump like your sisters do, Its so funny watching you try to jump. You are a good listener, you understand me when I tell you to bring me something or to give whatever you have to your sister or whoever. Mad, I am so blessed to have you as my daughter, you are amazing! I know God has big plans for you and your sisters!! Never give up on anything and whatever you do give 100% at all times.

Happy 1st Birthday, sweet heart!!

Oceana’s 3rd Birthday!

   We celebrated Oceana’s Birthday on her actual birthday which was on Wednesday June 13th. It was a last minute put together birthday party, but it actually turned out great! I think it turned out better then if we would have planned it in advance.
Before her little birthday party started we both went to get our hair done with my sister-in-law.
Oceana looked so cute sitting in the chair getting her hair all curled up! She kept turning back all shy to where I was to see if I approved of how her hair was looking, and every time she would turn I would smile big and give her a thumbs up!

I very much enjoyed this bonding time with my little OC.

 After getting our hair done we went to Baskin Robbins for ice cream and a milk shake! We both had tons of fun spending quality time with each other! I defiantly have to do this with each one of my girls.

We got home and a few hours later the party started. Oceana had such a blast with all her little friends and cousins.

Happy 3rd Birthday Oceana!!! We love you so much, sweet peanut!!

Ray’s SURPRISE Birthday!

  Saturday May 12th, Ray and I got away to the city to do an all day spa day, dinner, and stay the night in the city with just us two.
We took Bart so we wouldn’t have to worry about a thing! Parking out there can be stressful! While on the Bart train, we enjoyed each others company, and talked about how much we both need this all day spa day. Once we arrived at the city we did what we do best, grabbed some Starbucks! after we walked to where we were staying at, Villa Florence! We got there checked in, went up to our room and got ready to walk to La Belle Spa. 

As soon as we got to the Spa we were in heaven!

They served us lunch <3333

After an amazing, much needed spa day, we walked to the mall and did a little looking around and then walked back to our room to relax some more before dinner at Press Club.
What Ray didn’t know was that his family and friends were going to be waiting for us there!
I did not get a picture of Ray when he seen his family and friends, but he was surprised, and you can tell by all the pictures he was very HAPPY!! Happy Birthday, my love!!!!

The rest was history!!

Mine & Ray’s Birthday Celebration

 
On Ray’s birthday the girls and I surprised him at his work with a small chocolate cake. The girls and I love visiting daddy at work, specially when we are surprising him! Ray was so happy to see us! The smile on his face was priceless!
we did just a quick little visit cause he had to get back to work. But, what Ray didn’t know was that I had an even BIGGER surprise during the weekend (posting next time) for him!

The next day was my birthday, and I treated myself to hangout with my sister and girlfriends from morning to evening!
We headed to oh la la crepes, super good! We did some shopping, grabbed some Starbucks, then headed to the pool! It was such a relaxing time hanging out by the pool without having to worry about the little ones.

After  relaxing by the pool, we headed to our favorite spot, under dog at Concannon!

I had the best 27th birthday ever!! Thank you sis for setting this day up, you’re the best!


Easter Weekend

 
Friday was Jacobs birthday, and after, the girls dyed some eggs and decorated them. The girls love spending time with their cousins. They love being at auntie Cindy’s house.

After all the kiddos left, the cousins dyed eggs!

Once we finished dying eggs, the girls and I headed out to get ready for the A’s game!


On Saturday morning, we headed to Blackhawk Country Club for breakfast, a magic show and a Easter egg hunt for the kiddos. At the door to greet all the parents and kids was the Easter bunny!! The girls we so excited they climbed up the stairs so fast to give the Easter bunny a hug!
After breakfast they had a magic show for the kiddos. The guy who was doing the magic show did such a good job! I heard that he was way better then last year.
the magician kept choosing kids to help him on stage and Raychel raised her hand every time but was not picked. She got so upset, but she stayed persistent and she got picked at the end! which was the best time to be picked because they pulled out a real bunny out of a hat!! Ray also went on stage because the magician needed a parent with the child. Oceana sneaked up on stage too!
Once the pulled the bunny out of the hat all the kiddos went crazy and were running up the stage to see/hold the bunny. After the magic show was  over the Easter egg hunt began.
Once the egg hunt was over we headed to Braden’s first birthday party. The girls had such a blast all day Saturday.
Sunday, we headed to church a little earlier because Raychel and Oceana (and the rest of the kiddos) were going to sing. I love watching the little ones sing for Jesus, its so sweet.

 After a great service we headed to our favorite breakfast place Zorns.

Breakfast was delicious! We then headed out to the mall which come to find out they were closed 😦 lol!
We then went back to my parents house before heading to auntie Cindy’s casa.
At auntie Cindy’s we had such a blast spending quality time with family and also celebrating our niece’s birthday.

The cousins all went out hunting for eggs

This was our extraordinary Easter weekend!!

Also, a week and a day ago was my sweet sisters 30th birthday!!
We went to brunch at cheesecake factory, she did some shopping, and then we headed to our favorite place Concannon for some appitizers and a glass of wine. Later that evening we had pizza and cake at the parents.

On another note; madison has been sleeping a little better. Thank you guys for your sweet comments and prayers!! Love you!

Lunch Date

 A few weeks ago, I had a lovely lunch date with this beautiful women!! 
AND… Today… is… her… BIRTHDAY!! HAPPY BIRTHDAY MY SWEET FRIEND!
I LOVE YOU!
SEE YOU SOON!

6 Months

 
My sweet baby girl… you turned  6 months this past Sunday!!!

Where does the time go?! It seems like it goes by even fast with each little one.

Madison, I am loving you! I love holding you, cuddling you, playing with you, you are such a sweetie!!

 You love watching your sisters play and while watching them, you kick your little legs when there running around as if you want to be running around with them.

 You are eating fruits, meats and veggies twice a day now, and you love them! It has been getting harder to nurse you now, because you get distracted by your sisters… all you want to do is keep an eye on them and see what they are up to. So, from you not nursing as much during the day you nurse more at night! That meaning I have to get up like 3-4 times at night to nurse you!! I need to do something about this because mommy needs her sleep.

Madi, my poor little thing. You have eczema and its so itchy you are always scratching your beautiful little face 😦 . Your doctor has giving me some lotions and subscribed me one, so hopefully this will help!

Madison, You weigh 16 pounds and 5 ounces!! you sure love to eat!! I love that you are nice and chunky!

Madison, you are precious! You are such a joy to me, your dad, and your sisters! We are truly blessed to have you in our lives! We love you sweet Madi!

Bri’elle’s Birthday Party & Bible Study

  After taking our Christmas family pictures, we headed over to Brandi & Jay’s casa for bible study and to celebrate Bri’elle’s 2nd birthday!
I know I sound like a broken record but, I love spending time with these girls! They are all just A-mazing!! We just started a Beth Moore study and it was so refreshing to hear her speak. Cant wait for next months study!

Brandi is so amazing, she did a craft with all the kids making cute little reindeer!!

 We also exchanged gifts which was a lot of fun!!

Happy 2nd birthday Bri’elle! God has truly blessed you with such wonderful parents.
Bri’elle, I pray that you will be God’s light in your generation… that people may see how amazing our God is through you.
May He bless you all the days of your life!
Feliz Cumpleanos, chula!


Birthdays, Birthdays and more Birthdays

Last Saturday, we went to Andruw’s 5th birthday! It was so cool!! It was an indoor sports center and we played Andruw’s favorite sport, baseball! Andruw’s favorite team is the SF Giants. He is so good at playing baseball that it would not surprise me if he became pro one day, actually, am sure he will!! The girls had fun for the first half hour, then they were just being girly and wanting to play something else. Sorry… girls, no princesses here- haha! They were good sports though. Same as the hubs… he was actually not feeling to good, but he knew how much I wanted all of us to be at sweet Andruw’s birthday.

The decor was all SF Giants! Christine (Andruw’s mommy) did such a good job with all the party details. She is such a good mom!

Happy 5th Birthday Andruw! <333

 OK, who knows what the heck I was trying to do here -haha… fly maybe?! You can tell I don’t play sports all that much. I love them, but I just don’t play them all that often-hehe.

 My LOVES!
