Mia is one!

In all honesty, where in the world did the year go!? I cant believe our sweet little Mia is one!! We started the morning off like we usually do for first birthdays with donuts! Mia of course devoured it!! She loved us singing to her as well =)













We stayed with my Dad that night to prepare for her party the next day and had dinner with him at legends where I caught these cute little pictures of our new walker..



I wish I could freeze time..we all love her so much and can't imagine life without her!!

Tender moments & faces

I just couldn't help but snap a couple pictures of these two walking back to the car from Cayden's school. I love to see the love and friendship that is growing between them, but man do they still fight like crazy!









Ellie sadly took a bad fall to the face. The kids were up on our raised planter (needless to say we have constantly told them not to go up there...because someone was going to fall) and sure enough one of them did.



We slathered Neosporin on it



Luckily it looked much better the next day!

Mia time!

My mom had to take my brother to a birthday party in Laguna so I offered to drive them and I also snuck Mia out with me. It was so much fun being able to focus on just her and seeing her cute little personality.





She has been my only sand eater!! She is determined to try it and is always trying to sneak it in when I am not looking!!
















We had a delicious dinner at Ruby's after the beach  minus Mia spitting up a bunch (prob from eating too much sand) It was a great day!

Park time!

On Saturday August 20th we had a little bit cooler of a day, meaning, not in the 100s =) My sister and I decided to take the kids to one of their favorite parks and they had a blast..













Mia slept through most of the fun but she was able to fit in some swinging time before we left..

All that Jazz!

Ellie has started another season of dance! She (and I) decided she should try jazz this year. For me it was because I was done dealing with the tight fight every Monday and this class didn't interfere with her preschool she was going to be starting soon! She LOVES it! They were working on some stretches and so I decided to snap a few pics..









I love that she peeked over at me...she is very flexible and I have no idea where she gets it from!!

My little First Grader

Well Summer came and went SO fast like usual! I can't believe my little Cayden is officially a first grader! I could tell he was a little nervous but definitely excited, he loves school!





Cayden has been really sticking with the train engineer profession...



We ran into some friends from last year which was fun =)







I think this is where the nerves were really starting to sink in..



Off they went..school is such a bittersweet thing for me.

The night before school

I decided to do a fun little family dinner/family home evening the night before school. We decided to talk about putting on the armor of god which we had a cute little orange demonstration so I thought I would keep the theme alive so we ate orange chicken and had an orange cake for dessert. The kids loved it!





My mom couldn't miss out on the fun and she even brought them little gifts..












Time is flying way too fast, I can't believe I will have two in school! Only one more to go =)
