About Me

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.

Yes I took pictures of our lunch.  Ha ha.  Taro asked me if I was starting a food blog.  Hmmm, not a bad idea.

AJ loves miso soup.  No joke.

Just had to show you the Volcano Roll we ordered.  It's somewhere under all that yummy crab salad with bits of fried goodness shaped like a volcano.  The orange sauce on top was spicy, and very yummy.  Taro said he wouldn't order it again though.  I thought it was great.

This was Mikasa restaurant in Lathrop.  Good service, and great food for a little strip mall restaurant.  Would definitely try it again.

Must go and think up the name of my food blog now.

3 Months Old

I can't believe Nate is already three months old.  In one moment it seems like he was just born, and another  where it seems like he's been a part of our family forever.  He is truly a little blessing.  AJ utterly adores him, and so do we.

He is really smiling alot these days.  It's just really hard to get a picture.  And he is really cooing alot and trying to laugh.  Watch the video to see him laughing.

Holding his head up so good

My Clark Kent AKA Superman

AJ loves playing with Taro's glasses, and when he put them on with his Superman shirt (thank you to Ryan's hand me downs) I couldn't resist a pic.  We asked AJ if he wanted to be Clark Kent for Halloween and he said "Yeah, I do. "  Too bad he has absolutely NO idea who that is.  We tried to explain but I don't think he cared.  He just thought he was really funny wearing daddy's glasses.
