Red Sun!

With all those fire's in California, we have had a lot of smoke in the Valley. The last few nights the sun at sunset time is really red. I thought it looked really cool, so I had to snap it!

Happy 4th Birthday Aiden!

My little Aiden turned 4! He is such a wild little boy, but he is so funny! He wanted a transformer birthday party! I asked him what the best part of his birthday was, and he sad it was the cake, and all his new presents! Here are some pictures of the party!
This boy loves cake!

Here he is breaking the pinata!
Here's Jeremiah enjoying the view on Grandpa Dominguez's lap!
Then off to opening presents! He was a crazy one during this...he would open one up, then toss it to the side, then on to next. I don't even know who half of them were from. He did have lots of help from his sister, and Devin and Elizabeth too!
Happy Birthday my crazy wild Aiden! We love you, and wish you only the best!

So sick...

First week to school, and already home sick. I guess there has been a lot of kids going home sick since school has started. Amiah got sick Thursday night, and I kept her home on Friday. She had a fever, and body aches. Poor thing, all she wants to do is sleep.

Happy 50th Birthday Momma!

I threw my mom a surprise 50th birthday party with help from family and friends. I can't believe we actually pulled it off...she was totally surprised!

I hung all kinds of fun signs around the house, and have everyone show up in black! It was a lot of fun!

Here is my mom in this cool hat, and awesome necklace I got for her, I made her wear it almost the whole night!

Then it was time for games...Yup Games!!! I wanted to make my mom feel young again, so we played some rather crazy games! This particular game I got the idea off you tube! It involves plungers and toilet paper! It was hilarious, we were all laughing so hard!

Then we played the flour/candy game! Again, another bit hit! They all had a blast!

Then of course we played samurai...but I played as well, so there are no pictures of that...sorry! It was so funny, some people just couldn't stop laughing during that!

Then we had some cake! mom's favorite! (NOT...sorry, the deli didn't know; and it was a gift from them) She was a sport, and had a piece though!

Happy 50th Birthday MOM! I hope had a great day! I sure love you, and so do my kids! I wish you the best year to come!

Monday, August 24, 2009 comes Amiah!!!

Amiah started Kindergarten! She was so excited. I asked her how her first day went, and she loved it. She got to see all her friends from her preschool. She really likes her teacher, and she can't wait to ride that bus!

My little girl is just growing up way to fast! It was pretty funny though, at the end of the night, she did ask me when her days off were...she is just too smart for her own good sometimes! I love you Amiah!

Excuse me...Jeremiah!!! There is something hanging sideways from your mouth! OH...That's Your Tongue? Weirdo!
He has been sticking his tongue out like this for about a week now, it is so funny! We love our little guy, he is so much fun!

Sweet Dreams!

My kids have a love/hate relationship! They can be enemy's or best friends...just depends on the day of the hour! Some nights they like to sleep with each other; which is totally fine by me! I just thought this was so funny, they are sharing the edge side of the bed, and one pillow! But they don't care, they look pretty comfortable to me!
Sweet Dreams You Two Crazy's!

Jeremiah's Tubby Time!

My little bather, I swear this kid can hear the water running from across the house! He comes crawling over as quickly has he can, and stands up and starts screaming! He loves his bath! He thinks it is funny when I dump water on his head. I just had to share with you these cute pictures!

Hide-N-Seek with the camera!

Our new favorite game to play at my house with the kids is hide-n-seek with the little camera! We have so much fun! We always get the best pictures! One night Sonya and Bryce came over for dinner, and we played it! We even got my Sister-n-law Victoria to join in a few games (she actually came over to say Goodbye as she was on her way back to Vegas)! It's a blast! You should try it!!!

After we played that, we got out my strobe light...that was way entertaining! If you want a good laugh, get a strobe light and some hyper is hilarious!

Soaking in the Sink!

There's nothing like a bath in the kitchen sink! Jeremiah is the perfect size for this kitchen convenience. He loves it! I think I have got myself another water loving baby boy!

Hunting Season

It's that time of year again! I was unsuccessful at getting a tag this year, but Jacob got an archery tag for the area our property is on. So this last weekend we all went camping! And after 7 years of owning this property I finally made it up there to see it!

It was so pretty at the property, but man was it so cold! I didn't enjoy camping this time around, it is so hard with kids; especially with a baby! Poor Jeremiah was so cold at night, we ended up sleeping in the truck. I turned the heater on every 30 minutes to let him warm up, then I held him the entire night. Needless to say I got only 2 hours total sleep the first night. It was so cold and windy, the thermometer read 35 degrees....nice.

The next day was beautiful, if the sun stayed out from behind the clouds. All and all the camping part was stressful. The next night was a little better, I think he was just exhausted and didn't care to be cold. I just kept blankets on him, and he had 2 layers of clothing, plus two beanies. If I would of known it was going to be that cold, I would of stayed home.

I am excited to say that Jacob got his deer though! I was so thrilled and shocked that he was the one and only who got a deer that weekend. Not saying he is a bad hunter, his brother and cousin are usually the lucky ones who see them first, then shoot them. I do believe this deer will be staying in our house for years to least the horns. Yeah...

I am just glad to be back in the warm country, and in my house! With running water, bathrooms, and my very own comfy bed!

Here are some pictures we snapped while we weren't freezing our booty's off!
Here's Aiden...up to all sorts of mischievous stuff!

Here is Amiah and Aleecia on the bridge that goes across a little creek in our campsite.

Here is my niece Gabi snoozing away snuggled up with Eva!

Here's Jeremiah swinging in his swing, while Victoria reads and Aleecia entertains Jeremiah.

Here's Amiah and Aiden getting ready to go for a ride with Big Duane on the Arctic Cat. They loved this one, cause they were warmer on it, rather then on the four wheelers.

Here's Little Duane holding Jeremiah getting ready to take him on a little cruise! It must be a guy thing, cause Jeremiah was drawn to those four wheelers...he would sit on them, and just rock back and was so cute.
Here is me and Jer-Bear sitting on the Arctic Cat.
And finally the "Mighty Hunter" and his Buck!
ps...I did this one in black and white...there was a lot of blood...LOL

Worn-Out from Screaming!

Since Aiden screamed a lot during swimming classes, he would come home so tired, poor guy! One day he passed out on the chair in the living room. Amiah decided to cover him with pillows to keep him warm, it was too cute. I just had to take a picture of him. She was so concerned about him, she is such a little mommy! She can be so sweet!

Swimming Lessons

I decided to finally put my kid's in swimming lessons before the summer gets over. I signed them in the same class in a preschool level. It was their first class ever, so it was a good least I thought at first.

The first week went great, they kind of what they were told, and they were very eager to participate during lessons...until they ended up having a sub for the first part of the second week. Then it was all down hill for Aiden from then on.

He got dunked by the teacher for not following orders. I didn't mind it at all, he needs to do what they are telling him, and if he doesn't do it right, then down he went! Well, apparently that wasn't fun at all for Aiden, and the rest of the week he screamed either at the top of his lungs, or refused to even get in the water.

Good thing we have a pool at home. I have been working with him, and he is doing so much better, he isn't afraid of the water anymore. He loves going under water, I make him plug his nose, and we count to three and we both go under. It is fun!

Amiah did alright in the class, she did get dunked as well. But she wasn't scared to get back in the water. She actually listened more as the days went on, so it was a good thing for her.

Next year, I am going to put them in the preschool level again at the beginning of the summer, then make them repeat it the next month. I hope it helps!

I love the water, and I want them to love it too, and not be scared, but have fun in it!

It Came...My Birthday!

Well...I am officially OLD! I turned the big 30!
It was a day I have been regretting for quit some time now...and it came. There was no stopping it, and no slowing it down. It came and went, and I have to say it was one of the best birthday's I could of ever had!
My sister surprised me and showed up on my doorstep Sunday afternoon! She stayed for 3 days, and it was so nice! We spent a nice day together just the two of us.
We relaxed and got massages, and pedicures. Then we went to the movies and watched "My sister's keeper".
It was a day I will never forget. I had the best time, I am so blessed to have such an awesome sister/best friend. I don't know what I would do without her. I love her so much, she is the best sister anyone could ever have. Thanks so much Misty for making my birthday so special! I Love ya Sis!

Brotherly Love

Jeremiah loves to climb on you when you are laying on the ground...especially his older brother and sister! Aiden usually doesn't let him, but this day he did, it was so cute. Jeremiah likes to grab your face, and give you big kisses, and Aiden was just laughing so hard. It was just too cute not to pass up a picture!
