A day at the beach....

We had so much fun at the beach earlier this week. This was Ally's first time at the beach, and I think she liked it. She has had a bit of a cold this week so she has been unusually grouchy so it was hard to tell if she really liked it or not.

Audrey of course love, love, loved it!!!! She was covered in sand, in fact I am still finding some here and there 4 days later. She loved the water and loved building sand castles.

My sister went with us and is now Audrey's favorite Auntie in the world. She keeps asking for Auntie and the beach!!

On a different note, I am finally finding time to do some cross stitching. YEAH!! It has been a while. I have been working on the girls scrapbooks a lot lately but I haven't made any time for my cross-stitching. I will post some pictures of my progress soon.
I hope you all have a blessed weekend!!!

Joseph's Birthday Party

So my nephew turns 1 on the 4th of July. Some of us are going up to Northern California, where the grandparents live so that we can all celebrate on his actual birthday. Last weekend we celebrated in Escondido with those who can't make it up north for his real birthday so these are a few pictures of the fun.


So what do I do with this thing????

The cake.

My gorgeous niece, Sofia and her daddy, my brother-in-law, Mehran.
We had a really great time. It is always such a blessing to celebrate the first year of life. Children, although they can be a handful, and believe me mine have been for the last two weeks, they are a miracle from God and I am so thankful for my children and my niece and nephew. They are so precious to me!!

This one's for you Kim. Now if I can only get it into my side bar!! Everyone visit Today's Creative Blog, it is my new favorite place to hang out!!

Wow, what a couple of days we have had....

The drama has been huge at our house this last week. About two and a half months ago Audrey was hospitalized for 4 days due to some issues with seizures and a major break out of hives because of nasty viral infection. Well Sunday morning I went to change her diaper and right there in front of me was some nasty looking welts. All I could think of was, IT'S BACK!!!
Well we took her to Urgent Care Sunday morning, (poor Jeremy, what a sucky Father's Day) and she had a nasty viral infection in the back of her throat. Because of the issues that we dealt with 2 months ago he wanted her back in the doctor's office the next day to monitor the hives.

The next day we took her in and the the hives had worsened. On top of that she had developed a nasty ear infection too. Well thank God for Dr. Reed. She was all over it. She gave Audrey steroids which got rid of the hives completely by the next morning. (Praise the Lord!!)
On top of Audrey being sick Ally was throwing up over the weekend and had some pretty severe diarrhea. No fun.

Anyway, last Saturday we had some fun celebrating our sister-in-laws birthday and Jeremy's aunt's birthday. We went to a mexican restaurant in Escondido and we all had some fun.

The Birthday Girls!!

The Kids.

Ally Girl!!

We had the privilege of having my sister come up and spend a couple of days with us!! It was so nice to have her help and the girls adore her. I desperately needed some help with two kids that were on the mend.

Audrey & Auntie Traci

We built a castle with paper towels. I have never seen Audrey get so excited!! She kept saying I DID IT every time she got another paper towel roll to stay on top of the last one. It was loads of fun!!
Hope all is well with everyone. This is quite a big post but a lot has gone on since my last one.

My Bikini Girls

Aren't they cute? I love the matching bikini's. What is it with me and making the girls twins. Oh well I just think they are adorable. They love going over to Auntie's pool and hanging out. Thought I would get a quick pic before they got drenched.

I am getting the hang of this...

I think I am finally getting the hang of this blog thing. I am venturing out into the world of all things internet and wow I am finding some really cool stuff.

I even became a facebooker. Wow that is a trip. I am finding all sorts of people that I haven't talked to in years.

Anyway, here are a few new pictures of the girls. They are the Target twins. Look at the cute matching pink outfits that I got the girls at Target. It was a super steal at $2.99 each for the shirt and shorts. Aren't they adorable!!
