Cousin time, blessing, hiking and missing tooth!

This past Sunday, Jeff was able to do Violet's baby blessing. We had some family, from my side, and friends that were able to be there and share this sweet special moment.

Cousin Layla is playing with Violet...it'll be great once they can actually play together without poking each others eyes or pulling hair or any of that other stuff. This is the first time any of our kids has had a cousin so close and hopefully they can be really great friends.

This dress is almost as old as I am! All of my girls have worn this dress for their blessing and all of Jeff's sisters wore it for their blessings and I think some cousins have worn it too!

She looks so cute, huh? Her tia made her little headband flower thing...very talented!

Here's Violet right before Church.

Ventured over to Solstice Canyon in Malibu for this hike. Kids actually made it without complaining too much. "I'm dirty! I'm hungry! I'm tired! Carry me! I need to go potty!" That was just from me...he he.

Veronica has been wiggling her little front tooth for a couple of weeks now and finally decided that it was time for it to come out. So, she said I could pull it for her. She really wanted this and of course it was picture day the next day! Anyway, the good thing about losing a tooth is that Veronica insisted on getting to bed on time. I still chuckle when I see Veronica's toothless smile.

Violet in September








This is my chaos...

Everytime I walk downstairs I see these 4 little people. Most days are overwhelming and exhausting but knowing they love me unconditionally gives me the energy that I need to do my work. I love my kids...they drive me crazy and wear me down but they make me laugh everyday.

Preschooler and 2nd Grader!

David had his taste of preschool for a few months last school year, but he doesn't start Kindergarten until next school year (2012) so he's doing preschool again...this time for the whole school year. Luckily he doesn't seem to care that he's going to preschool again, he's just having a fun time being a "big kid."
Not a picture of the actual first day, but still equally excited. It's funny because I asked if he wanted to wear his new shoes for school and he said yeah and now has deemed them his school shoes. He will not wear any other shoe to school...very particular about his clothes.
Anyway, he loves preschool and it's nice for me to have time with the other 2 while both David and Veronica are in school. Hopefully David will stay relatively healthy this year. Last year he was sick a lot while he was in school. The summer has been illness free, sort of. Here's to a fantastic year of preschool.

She's finally back in school and we are all so happy about that!
It has certainly been a very long summer with Veronica and all of her questions and sass...I have had my fill and am so happy to have some time with my spunky little Nessa and little Violet without Veronica telling me how to do things. Love her and glad that she's back to being busy with school and friends.

Put in some new tile...no thanks to a leaking refridgerator line.

Took this picture right around midnight. As you can see, she's wide awake and so are we!

Violet and her best friend, green bink.
