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.

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!!

New Years Eve and Day

  New years eve was real low key, we did some shopping at the mall, went home, got on our PJ’s and ordered some pizza. I put the girls to bed around 8pm and the hubs and I just hung out till midnight. We were not sure if we were going to make it till midnight, because we were both getting real sleepy by 11pm so, Ray took out the champagne for when the clock striked midnight! We both actually fell asleep at like 11:30pm and I got woken up by Jenny McCarthy on TV saying, “Happy New Year Everybody!” I thought we had missed it!! I woke Ray up, and we seen there was only 5 minutes left on the clock before midnight! At 12pm we entered the new year with a kiss, and cheered on the new year with our champagne!

 12 seconds till new years
Cheers to 2012!
In the morning of new years day, we dropped the girls off at my parents and we headed to the Raider vs Chargers game.
I love football, and  I love going to the games! unfortunately, the raiders blew it, like always, and lost.
😦

Tahoe Trip Part III

Christmas Day, after opening presents {here}, we went to Heidi’s restaurant for breakfast, and then we headed to Heavenly in hopes there would be snow for the girls to play in. Tahoe was so dry this year, there was hardly any snow!! I guess last year was the opposite! But we made the best of it, and we ended up having a blast!

 Madison all nice and warm sleeping away.
 LOL! Look how dry! But Ray made the best of it for the girls to have fun…
 Here he is sliding down the hill with Raychel – haha!! LOVE IT!

 Raychel sliding down a small little hill.
 Then we met, Susie! Her mom and dad were so nice, they let them play in their board! Susie also has a younger sister about the same age as Oceana!
 They were sure having a blast! I also got to go down on the board lol!

 

Tahoe Trip Part II

Early Christmas Eve, we loaded up the Escalade with all the girls Christmas presents and headed to Lake Tahoe!
 We stopped at Starbucks, got some coffee and their breakfast sandwiches 😉

 LOVE my white chocolate mochas!!
 Oceana does too! haha! Don’t panic, I just let her have a little sip 😉
Our cabin for the weekend
 We unpacked, relaxed, and then we headed to dinner at Cabo Wabo
 After dinner we headed back to our cabin, got comfy, baked cookies for Santa and watched a family movie <333
 

Feliz Navidad and Tahoe Trip Part I

  This past weekend we headed to Lake Tahoe to spend Christmas Eve and Christmas out there! It was such a blast spending great quality time with my family. The girls were so excited for Christmas Day to open up their presents. The girls prayed to Jesus letting Him know what they wanted for Christmas so that Jesus can tell Santa ;). Early Christmas morning the girls were so excited to see that God had listened to their prayers and that Santa brought them what they had prayed for. Raychel was jumping up and down saying, “Thank you Jesus, thank you Santa!” Oceana was also very excited to get her Dora backpack. After opening presents Raychel said, “Now, lets sing happy birthday to Jesus” ðŸ˜‰ and that was exactly what we did! It is such a joy and a blessing spending these great holidays with my family 🙂 … specially in Tahoe!!

 Madison’s 1st Christmas! She loved the wrapping paper 😉

Feliz Navidad!!
