Best Friends

Every once in a while I'm able to grab the camera in time to capture some of Nathan and Audrey's funny moments together. Tonight they both got up on the step stool and brushed their teeth together. It was so sweet and funny!
Trying to get a drink of water at the same time.

The word "Cheers!" really did come out of their mouths.

Mother's Day

I had a really nice Mother's Day with Todd and the kids. The day started with me sleeping in (hooray!) then we had a delicious brunch in Campbell. Later that day, we had my whole family over for dinner. My mom and I spent a relaxing afternoon at Lisa's Tea Treasures at Santana Row the next day too. I love being a mom and I am so grateful to have such a wonderful mom in my life!

Happy Birthday Todd!

May was a very busy birthday month for us. Todd's birthday is May 10th, which was the same day as Mother's Day this year. So we shared :) We kicked off his 35th birthday by celebrating with the Brengards and Chamberlains.

Yes, that is a ham. With candles in it. Don't ask.

Here's the real cake. Don't ask.

Audrey & Nathan made Dad some special gifts.

Audrey said Dad would want pink cupcakes for his birthday. So that's what we made!

Celebration #2.

Happy Birthday Hunter & Andrew!

Friends and twins, Hunter and Andrew, turned 3 on May 5th! We celebrated with them at their house with delicious food and plenty of activities for all the kids. The weather was perfect and everyone had a great time.

Bye Bye Cribs, Hello Toddler Beds!

The time had come to take down the cribs and get toddler beds. For months the kids have been climbing out of their cribs. Since we weren't quite ready to purchase twin beds and mattresses, we bought a new toddler bed for Audrey and our good friends, Tricia and Jerry, loaned us their son, Tyler's, Cars toddler bed for Nathan. I was actually sad to see the cribs go. Just another milestone to remind me that my babies aren't babies anymore. We sold the rocking chair, high chairs and now the cribs. The kids were very excited to get their new beds and it's a lot more safe to get in and out of!
Here they are sleeping in their cribs for the very last time :(

Dinner with Family

My parents took us all out to dinner at our favorite Chinese food restaurant in downtown Saratoga. My brother, Todd, spent a lot of time working on my parents' house so this was a "Thank you" to him. It was also a good-bye dinner. Todd re-inlisted in the army and left for Fort Bragg about a week ago. We are so proud of him and pray for his safety every day.

Art Show

Audrey & Nathan's preschool had their annual art show last month. Each child at the school had one piece of art matted and displayed in Willow Glen. It was very exciting to go and see their art hanging up with an official award ribbon! The kids had a playdate in the morning with friends where they all wore their PJs - so that's why you see them wearing pajamas out and about.
