photo booth fun

this last weekend was christian and cerisa's (my youngest sister) wedding.
the day was an absolute dream!
among the beautiful scenery, delicious food, awesome entertainment (coffey anderson!), and good friends and family...there was the super fun photo booth.
we all had a good time being super silly!

here are some of those funny shots:

noah and cousin red...these two went and did these all by themselves.
i was cracking up when i saw this for the first time.

the cousins


our best friends...the tuckers :)

yoga ala johnson!

the griffiths. love us!

my in-laws! haha, or wait...is that elton?!

the gorgeous mr. and mrs. o

this one is my fave!
i love them!


been forever

can't believe january was the last time i posted something! crrrrraaaaaaaazy!
here is a random overload to get us all updated! :)

the cuties...they are growing like weeds!

daddy turned 32 in march!

got a free computer hutch from a friend who is moving to australia.
i painted it eden green and it is the perfect thing to keep lil fingers off of the computer and keep all our clutter behind closed doors. i put cork board tiles on the inside of the doors, so our family/school bulletin boards are tucked away too. :)

auntie cisa came to play and take care of the boys while i was outta commission for a little bit.
all is good now though
and the boys enjoyed their quality time with auntie.
thanks cisa! for everything.

boys will be boys! these kiddos love the park and could stay all day long.

lovin' on each other.

nono had crazy hair day at school
and bro wanted to join in on the craziness too.

bro at it again! do not leave this kid unattended with markers! LOL
you should of seen his hands.

this is what i find on a daily basis. random boy toys.
lined up somewhere they don't belong.

bro and i on resurrection sunday!
praise the Lord for what he did for all of us!

nono showing us his favorite egg.

my handsome who is working so hard for us.
it's been a long time coming, but we are overjoyed for the awesome career God has blessed him with. he is doing so well and is on his way to promotion already! :)
we sure do miss him though!

because daddy has been so busy with work,
the boys savor every second they get with him.

we have even got to go with daddy on work trips and you better believe the boys love it.
these kiddos love hotels!

cisa had her bridal shower recently.
she becomes Mrs. O in several days!
ahhhhhhh! so exciting!
we are so happy for her and her man. they are one beautiful couple and their wedding is gonna be legendary! i just know it.


here we come

we got blessed with legoland tickets and the boys are beyond excited to go.
they are more excited to go here than to go to disneyland. shocking!
but if you knew my boys then you'd completely understand. they are obsessed with legos and star wars right now and really don't like people dressed up like big characters.
the hubby and i are excited ourselves...
to go down south and get our fave burritos that only san diego can provide.


i believe.

with Christmas arriving...this song tugs at my heart. it is a great reminder of what God had planned for His people and what this season is all about. not presents or santa or "happy holidays." Jesus!!



i am always amazed by what my kiddos come with.
here is what bro, our 3 yr. old said this week:

bro: i want milk!
me: we don't have any, we have to go to the store today.
bro: (walks to the pantry and grabs a bag out)
but mom, i know what you hab to do!
you jus take deez moshmellows, and squeeze dem in my cup.

lol! so funny and so cute!
he was totally serious about it too
which made it all the more endearing.
i love what these kiddos say.
so far, milk comes from marshmallows
and cheese comes from the moon.


i'm 30!

i'm old! just kidding.
not really!

my hubby had the day off, so i got to hang out with all my boys
and we met up with my sister and mom in the evening.

this is where i spent my day:

la's farmers market
it's so hard to decide where to eat in this place!

the grove

p.f. changs
they have an awesome happy hour menu from 3-6pm
where everything is $3-6

burbank town center
we had fun walking around downtown burbank and the mall.
everything is so much prettier when decorated for Christmas!!


red velvet

mmm...i'm quite obsessed with red velvet anything with cream cheese frosting!
it is so yummy even though it is basically a chocolate cake with red dye. haha.


nothin' a lil' paint can't fix

remember that mirror i found?
i wanted to paint it a fun color, but decided on a creamy white.
it's new home is in our master bathroom.
ten bucks. nice.


pumpkin patch...finally

we went to lombardi ranch a couple weekends ago.
it was crazy crowded, but still fun.

jail time. haha.

reach for the sky!
going to the top of the hay pyramid
waving to daddy
jumping off the hay bales! his fave part of the day.

on the hunt for the perfect white pumpkin.

no showing me the one he wanted.


lovin' on daddy


silly boys. they would not sit still for a pic.

my lil' monkey, with a black eye :(
i put a band-aid on it to hide the severeness of it, but we still got some funny looks, questions, and even some gasps from others.
seriously?! as if we socked our 3 year old in the face! kinda made me mad, but whatever.

again, not wanting to take pictures.

this one makes me laugh.
bro did not wanna take pics, he wanted to jump the hay bales.
look at that attitude!

my niece, bella.

no, bro, and cousin ethan (or easton as noah says)
these smiles make me happy.

sweet brothers
