<3 Then and Now <3

Richard and I at Disneyland in March of 1998.
In this picture I am 14, and he is 16.
Still not dating at this point.

Here we are after we first started dating in March of 2004.
Boy, was he overjoyed!

Here we are on our wedding day.
September 13, 2005.

Who'd have thought that two crazy kids that met at Magic Mountain
on June 28th 1997 would end up marrying each other 8 years later?

It's like looking at Kai...

When Kai was born, and up until a few months ago he looked EXACTLY like Richard's baby pictures. Then around 6 or 7 months he started to look more and more like Richard now, and more like ME as a baby. Here's a few baby pics of mine, that when I see them, it's as if I'm looking at Kai... he doesn't look 100% like me, but expressions and such, there's a definitive resemblance!

Especially this one. He makes this EXACT face!!

I came across this picture of my mom when she was younger. There are a series of these, but this is the only one I have. I've had this picture since high school, where I used to keep it in my room. I've always thought she looked stunning in this picture. It's one of my favorites!

The kids are back!

So this last weekend Cassidy, Corinne, and Kai went to Big Bear with Grandma and Grandpa. They got back yesterday evening, worn out, burnt, and a scrubby as can be, but it was more than worth it's weight in gold! Not only for the kids, but for Richard and I too. Richard and I not only had an entire weekend kid free, but Richard didn't have to work at all, and we were able to spend our entire kid free weekend with just each other! WOW! Needless to say it was amazing! We so enjoyed spending the time with each other, SLEEPING IN, (at least on his end) and not worrying about bottles, diapers, naps, practices, bills, NOTHING! It was a true gift, especially with baby #4 coming in about 3 weeks or so. Who knows the next time will be when we are kid free, but we will always have this past weekend...

The kids had a blast too! They got to go to the mountains, like they have been wanting too, and as an added bonus the snow was still there! They played in the snow constantly! Except for Kai that is, apparently he didn't like any part of the snow. The girls had a blast though. They went inner-tubing, tobogoning, had snowball fights, and all other sorts of fun. They even brought home snow from the mountains in the cooler, and were lying in wait for Richard and I outside of my parents house last night when it was time to go. As soon as we got out of the house we were bombarded with snowballs, and let me tell you, Cassidy has good aim! Kai even joined in on the fun last night in front of my parents house, and was feeding me snow.

Oh and id I mention, that Cassidy has lost not only one but BOTH of her front teeth? Richard worked only Thursday, and Friday last week, and was home with us the rest of the time with us. (Praise the Lord!) So last Tuesday we took the girls to Disneyland, and before we even made it to the gates her remaining front tooth was barely hanging in there. (pun intended) So Mommy, being the ever cruel and less sympathetic parent than Daddy, got a napkin and ripped it out. (With all of the drama of course, Cassidy screaming and crying...) But it came out the first good tug. So now Cassidy has a big gaping whole in the front of her mouth, and boy does it look strange!

I will post pics as soon as I have them available!!

Playing with Color

I've been taking random pictures of things around the house lately, inspired by some of my favorite blogs I peruse... So here's a few pics I've taken of some of my favorite things, and then I tweaked the colors a little... it's been quite relaxing I must say.

The topper to one of my favorite perfume bottles.

My perfume bottle collection...

A piece of fabric I fell in love with, and bought.
(It is pretty much this bright in reality)

Another fabric I found and fell in love with, also this bright in reality.

So there you have it, four totally random pictures, and one totally random blog about a hobby of mine, photography. (Oh the things I'll be able to do when I get my digital SLR... someday...)

It's Coming along... slowly

The baby bedding that I am sewing (with my Aunt's assistance) is coming along at a snail's pace. I think it's a combination of both being in the final throes of pregnancy, and intimidation. I am a bit intimidated by this project, the pattern, my sewing machine, my scissors... it's all a bit scary at times. I will be victorious however!! Here's a look at the fabrics I have chosen... it won't be perfect in the end, but it will be bright and colorful! Just how I like it!

Here's a quick picture of the bumper. Not finished... but getting there.
