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.

Ho Ho Ho

AJ said his favorite Christmas present was his tools. Here he is sporting his new tool belt and goggles. He has already "fixed" many things in the house so far.

Here is AJ with our "finished" gingerbread house. It started collapsing about a minute into decorating. Ha ha. We used canned food for roof support. We couldn't finish the other side of the roof for fear of a total collapse.

AJ didn't seem to mind seeing as he was doing this the entire time. Caught ya!

Our tree before the big day. Now our house is a diaster area. You don't want to see a picture of that.

I love Halloween!!! I tried sewing AJ's costume this year. He wanted to be Wow Wow Wubbzy. After talking about it forever, he did NOT want to put the costume on. I repeat, did NOT want to. After much crying and screaming, we bribed with a chocolate cupcake. ha ha. Of course that worked! After he got it on I think he liked it. He had a lot of fun at the Trunk or Treat party. And so did we.

His "kickety-kick ball" pumpkin and spinny hat.

This is for Grandpa! He attempted to play a round of golf.

Daddy and Wubbzy

The yummy treats including the aforementioned chocolate cupcakes.

AJ and Taylor, the #1 Giants fan!

Momma and Wubbzy getting the car ready.

Family pic!
The best shot of his crinkly tail while he sampled the goodies.
And for those of you who don't know what a Wubbzy is... (shame on you)... here he is. It's only AJ's most favorite person (?) in the whole world. Besides momma and dadda (maybe.)

Pumpkin Patch visit

AJ had so much fun with the animals in the petting zoo. He LOVED feeding them. He even went inside the pen with all the animals running around. I don't think he wanted to come out.

My favorite part is getting pictures with the silly signs.

Pacifica Beach

Burying Ryan in the sand.

We had a blast! AJ didn't want to go.

The After...

This is what the fireplace looked like before.

During. The old mantel was removed, the entire living room was painted, tv was mounted on the wall, and granite tile was laid on the floor.

The after! Aaaahh. Beautiful.

Real vacay pics!

Dinner with Mom and Dad at Uncle Chens. Yum.

Counting down the sunset with Mom.


Early morning walk on the beach (after going to Tylers probably). AJ couldn't resist getting in the water. We saw three seals that were so close in the waves. WOW! It was awesome. Of course I didn't get a picture of it.

The biggest sand box he's ever seen.

Chasing birds.

The familia.

Ryan and AJ too cute!


Aj had a blast at the beach. And to prove it he took some great pics. (no really he did.) Here they are.

So glad he got a pic of the Kortney Kardashian sighting! :)

More water!!!

Lots more fun with water this week. Grandma Nori got AJ an mini pool. AJ loved it!!!! We also took him to the water park. Too bad summer can't last all year long.
