Chirstmas Morning

Christmas was great! The kids had fun, Sage got what he wanted and Aurora is very happy with her new presents. Sage played Santa and handed out all the presents, he loved it. Here's a few pictures from the day.

Aurora opening her cooking set. She also got dishes and food for her cupboard. Soon she'll have a fridge and oven/stove to match.

Aurora also got a doll complete with a little bed, and when you flip it over it's a cradle. She also got a stroller to push her doll in. She loves playing Mommy.

Sage opening one of his games for his new V-Smile that his Uncle Joey and Aunt Amy bought him and Aurora.

Sage opening the gifts in his stocking

Aurora loves the her new hair rubber bands, they don't pull her hair out.

The kids in their new pj's made by Grandma. They opened these on Christmas Eve. Robert and I even have pj's that match the kids.
We hope that you all had a great Christmas and that you have a fabulous New Year!

Merry Chirstmas

Last night we took the kids to go see some Christmas Lights. We always go to Jingle Bell Hill in El Cajon. These were the only pictures that turned out some what decent,

This fountain changed colors along with the music that was playing. It was really cool.

Sage loved these dancing elves!

The Grinch was moving in and out of the chimney.

Father & Daughter

At our photo session, my friend Angie captured these super sweet moments of Robert & Aurora.

Although he'd never admit it, Aurora had Robert wrapped around not just one finger,but around both fists. All see has to do is look at him with her sad puppy dog face and he's hooked. It is so sweet to see.

I was 7 in this picture. I was at my friend Anya's Birthday Party. I remember it vividly because it was my first time going to Chuck E. Cheese. I loved that place and still do even now.

Mischief Maker

My Mom used to call me a Mischief Maker. I was always getting into things or as she likes to call it, "Nothing was safe or sacred!". Unfortunately it has come back to bite me. Aurora is always into something. Oh well... like Mother like Daughter I guess.
