Ripon, CA, United States
I am a stay at home mom who loves crafts, scrapbooking, baking, surfing the web, and chasing my kids around. I just realized the house is NEVER going to be clean again. I have an amazing husband who is patient, loving and who cooks and cleans. We've been married for over ten years now. This is our life.

Playing Outside

Don't miss the end where he's laughing. Pretty funny!


New this week... AJ has learned to dance. Go AJ, Go AJ, Go AJ! It's your birthday!

It was hard to get a good video because he wanted the camera, but this is pretty cute.

Give me a kiss!

Update: This is his latest expression. And it is not his nice kiss-ie face. This is his pouty face, and he takes deep breaths through his nose (like a bull).

Birthday Party!!!

Although he isn't going to be one until Oct. 29th, we had AJ's birthday party yesterday. It was a lot of fun. However, I don't think AJ had too much fun. He was glued to me the whole time. He didn't smile until he started opening his presents. And he didn't even want to eat his cake!!!! He never turns down food!!! He was tired and cranky and very clingy. But we managed to get a few pics.

Trying his own double decker cake I made him... but only a tiny bit.

Starting to open presents... he's a little interested...

This morning I tried to take some more shots of him with his hat. He was in a much better mood.

Homemade cookie monster cupcakes and a double layer Elmo Cake. Mmmm.

Couldn't resist posting all the pictures from AJ's 7 months portrait session. I finally broke down and bought the rights to the pictures. So no, this isn't illegal. :) These were taken the end of June. Enjoy!

armadillo hat.
