Ni Hao

Ni Hao made his way into our hearts and was really starting to make himself comfortable in our home. He really was the sweetest cat any of us had ever met. And amazingly well behaved...for a cat! (never on the counters, rarely on the table...) He loved to curl up on Gordie's bed and Adelee's lap. He loved to curl up in a warm shot in the house during the winter and he loved being outside in the heat during the summer. He never missed an opportunity to be pet or to cuddle, always trying to climb up onto our laps! We are thankful for the joy and love he brought to our lives over the past year and he is already missed greatly! His being gone hits me every once in a while and it makes my heart so heavy and really chokes me up. Poor little guy, very sad.

Day at the Beach with Auntie Jen

Auntie Jen and the three of us have been trying to get to the beach all summer...we finally made it this week! We packed up our buckets, blankets, kites and lunch and headed out to Ventura for a beautiful morning on the beach! I personally (at 8 months pregnant) thought that the weather was perfect, mid 60's with clouds. The kids loved flying their kites and playing in the sand. Jen loved jumping waves and I loved spending time with all of them!

When I grow up...

Just to mark it down in history...

Gordie is going to be a Space Shuttle Driver when he grows up.

Adelee is going to be a doctor when she grows up.

Last month, Gordie was going to be a race car driver and Adelee was going to be his tire changer.

Gordie's jobs seem to be kinda dangerous.

pictures to come...

Our Beach

Keeping up with my sisters...who both updated their blogs with pictures of their time at the beach, I thought that I would do the same. Although we weren't in the sand...we were at the ocean visiting dear friends and playing some baseball on the bluffs of Malibu.

Laura, Nathan and Kaitlin are here!

We are so thankful for Auntie Laura for bringing Kaitlyn and Nathan out to visit us this weekend! The kids were amazing on the airplane ride from Florida and we are having so much fun! We picked them up for the airport and went directly to the Aquarium of the Pacific in Long Beach, then back to the house to play in the backyard. Today we did was Friendship Day and the book we got to go along with the day was about a group of unicorns who are cousins and best friends! Super cute!

The Dentist!

They Passed with flying toothbrushes, floss, toothpaste, balloons, toys....What an event, and the kids loved it! I think it helped that there were TVs on the ceiling playing the "Buzz Lightyear Movie" aka "Toy Story".

OH I almost forgot, they got stickers too!
