About Me

My photo
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.

This little guy is starting to feed himself.  Big boy.  Most of it lands on his shirt though.  He doesn't seem to mind.

Nate was so excited to wear these Elmo overalls.  He calls him "Melmo"!  He's also been saying a few other words lately:

Peppa (Pepper)
Nack (snack)
Wow Wow (Yes, he loves Wow Wow Wubbzy too.  I wonder where that came from?)
Pocoyo (another tv favorite around here)

There's probably more, but I can't think of them right now. 

When did this little baby turn into such a big boy?

Nate loves cars and trucks. 

He decided he was going to ride this one.  A wheely??  Not a good idea Nate.

Oops!  Happened before I knew it.  But somehow managed to capture it. 

No worries.  He got right back up.  All boy.

Police Parade

 Every year in October, Ripon has a Police Car Parade with lights and sirens flashing!  It is LOUD!

It comes right by our house.  We heard them coming and ran outside.

There were probably 30 or so police motorcycles and cars from all over the state.   
And some old timey cars too.

Who ya going call?  Ghostbusters!!!

Or maybe Starsky and Hutch???

AJ LOVED it.  He was talking about it all week.  He didn't want to miss it.  Then he talked about it all day afterwards.
