Well it's been about 3 months since I last posted and alot has happened! I'm so horrible with trying to keep up on my blog. Anyway in early october I went to Sacramento for a quick visit. Thanks to Rachel & Matt for letting me stay with them...Love you guys!! It was nice to see old friends and go out to dinner with the girls. It seemed like nothing had changed and felt as if I had never left!! It was good to be back.


At Halloween we all met at my sisters house. The theme for adults was 80's . It was pretty funny. The cousin girls were pirates, Cody was something with a mask, keely was sleeping beauty, and Kai was a little vampire.... Very Cute!!

Happy Birthday Kia'i Boy!!


A couple weeks ago ..... I know I'm so late with posting things (but better late than never) was my nephew kiai's 1st birthday yay!!He is so adorable. I just love to smother him with kisses all the time. We just love him soo much. It's so nice to be back home now to watch all these babies in our family grow up and have them all play and grow up together as they get older. Here are some fun shots by the pool....






Here's the BIRTHDAY BOY!! Getting ready to blowout candles and eat some cake. Yum!


What are these cousins up too?..........


Just us sisters hanging out in the sun without the babies!

Keely's first day of school...

Keely...... So grown up!! She was so happy to begin her first day of school with her pretty new colorful uniforms. She is in pre-k and likes her teacher. After going to school for the first couple of days she loved it. As the week went on she began to realize that school was not all that is was cracked up to be. She had to wake up early everyday and was tired of not being able to sleep in and play at home with mom. Now I have to fight with her every morning to get her ready and go to school. She has developed quite an attitude, copying things from her older brother and sister. She likes to get into moms makeup all the time and likes to play model every time she gets the chance. She is a challenge for me, but after all is said and done at the end of the day she sqeezes me and says, "I love you mommy!" and just like that i'm ready to start the next day.






This is Keely before I dropped her off on her first day of school..........doesn't know what she's getting into.

Keely playing with pattern blocks. Doesn't she look so happy!

Getting so big!!

Kai is one month old today!! He's growing so fast as they usually do. He eats so much too. I swear i feed this boy about every hour and a half to two hours drinking about 5-6 oz. I don't know where it all goes but he keeps it all down!!! These pics are about 2wks old. He has fattened up quite a bit since then. Overall he's a pretty good baby.
Looks like he's having some dream.








Here are my long fingers.....













Just look at these toes.... funny huh?













That's my boy.... Love him!

He's finally here!

I've been pregnant for 39 weeks and he finally decided to bless our family on August 8, 2008! How's that for timing! He was born at 9:20p.m., weighed 7lbs. 15oz. and was 21 inches long. And boy do I stress long! His fingers are longer than any of my other children and let me just tell you his toes are like a second set of fingers! Everyone here says he'll be a good coconut tree climber. He's very sweet, likes to look around, and his brother and sisters can't keep there hands off of him! Especially Keely. She has to help with everything from changing diapers to smuthering him with kisses, and just needs to be by him every minute of the day. Some day she'll make a good mother and will know the stress she has caused me :) He he he! Enjoy the pictures, and there will be more posts to follow!
