Happy Birthday Cory

November 9, 2008

Cory's birthday isn't today it was Tuesday but we celebrated it today with his family. On Friday we went out to dinner at Flame n Skewers with Alison and Jesus and ate the best food I'd had in a long time. It is way yummy. I had such a nice time out with them. I love that we love each other and like each other too. That isn't always the way it works out when families join but so far it's the way always been. '
Today we ate Chicken Curry and Connie's chocolate cake smothered with caramel and sweetened condensed milk... this cake is not for the weak.

BIg Brother and his Little Sister

Nov. 4, 2008

This morning Caleb was especially loving to Hannah and really wanted to hold her and kiss on her. She cried for most of it but Caleb remained happy and held her. Note to Self: Sometimes days are hard but the good ones do come and make you REALLY glad your a Mom. Today was one of those days.

Sunday Dinner

Nov. 2, 2008

This evening we spent with my family eating soup and bread (jalepeno cheese bread - which I really love. It has the right amount of kick). After dinner we played Apple to Apples together. After the game was over we read aloud the cards we had won and laughed really hard. I hope those cards don't mean anything otherwise my parents are in big trouble with my sister. Speaking of... isn't she a doll?

Smoothie Mustache

Nov. 1, 2008

This morning I made Caleb a smoothie and, yes he actually drank it. He inherited a beautiful purple smoothie mustache, I took a picture of it before he wiped away the evidence.

Trunk or Treat

This year we dressed up in our best version of a 50's family. Hannah and I wore poodle skirts, (can you believe that someone woke up one morning and said, I've a great idea for fashion... we'll put a poodle...on a skirt. And we'll make millions! Cheers and Applause ). Cory was a nerd, he even had a "Kick me" sign on his back and the sad thing was, someone actually kicked him. I mean come on. Sister Cola, aka Madame Amber Jade, was there lookin awesome and so were a lot of others. I really loved Jocelyn's costume, she was "multi-eye" girl. I really don't know what she was but it was a really creative costume.

CBIZ Halloween

October 31, 2008

This afternoon at 4 all of the CBIZ kids were invited to come to the office and begin the trick or treating a little early. We were on time this year even a little early, hallelujah, and Caleb had a blast. Cory's co-worker dressed up like Ernie from Sesame Street and freaked all the kids out. He wasn't trying to be spooky... the over sized orange Ernie head did the job for him. Caleb looked around every corner before he walked down the hall or into the next office, in fear of... ERNIE.

The Spider

October 30, 2008

Tonight we carved our HUGE pumpkin. Well let me rephrase that, tonight Cory carved our HUGE pumpkin and we watched and cheered him on. Caleb decided very quickly that he didn't like touching the pumpkin guts. But he didn't seem to mind driving his tractor through them. In the end, we had an awesome spider-pumpkin.

Pumpkin Patch

October 27, 2008

We met with Grandma and the Moreno's for FHE tonight to pick out a pumpkin for Halloween. The boys had a great time. Patrick wanted to pick up every pumpkin he saw whether it was small or HUGE. The babies were really good and really excited about carving their pumpkin in a few days.

Hannah goes to Work

October 22, 2008

Today I brought Hannah to work while Caleb was at preschool to meet Cory's friends at work. She was very good and Cory was very happy to see us (it was a surprise... but don't we all like these kinds of surprises).

Tee Time

October 15, 2008

Caleb loves playing Golf and loves to play in the house...Good thing the ball stays on the ground.


October 14, 2008

Tonight Caleb made a train with his cars during his bath and then knocked them off and made it again, and again.

3 1/2 weeks

Oct. 13, 2008

Hannah had her first real bath today and she liked it long enough to take this picture and then it was a big race to finish and get her because she was "angry." Afterward she smelled like lavender and was calm and happy. Whew... I hope baths get better.

Soccer Pros

While the rest of the kids were busy perfecting their soccer skills Caleb and Patrick watched from the side lines... learning their secrets.
