Kindergarten Sweetness...


It amazes me at how quickly and what these guys are learning in the Spanish Immersion Program.  Jack's success in the 3rd grade is beyond words.
Make sure to click the music pause button down on the right hand side so that you can hear him.

I'm finally doing it after 8 years...alright, almost 9 years...

We are hiring a babysitter for tomorrow night!!!!

Yes, that's right.  We have never had anyone other than a family member or a trusted friend/family watch our kiddos.  It's our 11 year anniversary tomorrow and most of you would say that it's probably a miracle that we've made it this long without having nights out together....especially when Eric works from home.  He and I have LOTS of "quality" time together...thank goodness I love him as much as I do.  However, it might account for some of my gray hairs that I have.  
We have a lovely family that lives across the street from us and they have a daughter that is in college that lives at home with them...she's awesome and hopefully tomorrow is a win-win for all of us as I think that Eric and I could make this a monthly occurrence...if not bi-weekly.  :)
And Andrew already went in for the kill......she came over yesterday to speak with me and he went right in for the kiss!  Ladies Man strikes again!  I'm sure more stories to tell after tomorrow night.

Andrew gets a haircut...finally...

...or should we have left it long and carefree for the Cali lifestyle??
It was getting a little too "mullet-y" and we chose to cut it.
Missing the long locks now...we've never had our boys' hair grow out so long.
Still light in color!   :)



Those CHEEKS......I think they grew when I cut his hair!!

Sam adds SOCCER to his sports belt...

As the season is coming to an end...we are looking back on Sam's experience with SOCCER.  He went into it with and open mind and Eric and I wondered if he would enjoy it as he had never tried it before and didn't have his natural knack at this sport as he does with almost all the others.  A few games later...we were eating our words.  He loves it and has become quite good at it.  We have one game left and he's wondering when he can sign up again.

Eating bugs...

I love it that my boys will try almost anything...


How adventurous!!  Even if they were covered in chocolate.

Mallary & John's Wedding...

The soon-to-be Mr. and Mrs. Murtha
Hard to believe that it was already 2 months ago that Eric and I were witnesses to our great friends moment in declaring their forever love to one another.  The day had finally come that we were so happy to be able to be a part of...Mallary was getting married...and to a great guy on top of that!  :)

Eric and Mallary were actually separated at birth for those of you who don't know...  :)



We are so happy for the two of them and still have smiles engrained in our faces from so many laughs and great moments...
A few cocktails and dances later.......


Thank you, Mom, for coming to take care of the three crazy ones while we jetted off on a much needed break...and for picking out the great dress for me to wear.  :)



Emerald Bay...spoiled once again...

This summer we were once again invited down to enjoy the day with our great friends at Emerald Bay.  The boys all had a great time at the Vans Skate Park during the day and then we spent the early evening skating at the beach and enjoying the end of summer Reggae concert at the park.  We ended the night with another meal prepared for us by Chef Tommy...who was going to hang out with his friend "Slash" and the Black Eyed Peas in LA after he made us our meal.  We love Chef Tommy and frequently wish that he was available for us on many evenings.  :)
