Happy 1st Birthday Ellie!!!!

Our sweet little Ellie is "1" years old today! She is really the sweetest little baby and has been such a joy to our family. I admit I am a little sad that we have already reached this milestone but couldn't imagine our family without her!
Some of Ellie's milestones: Crawling all over the place, standing on her own, she has taken a step or two but not walking yet, she waves hi and bye, so far her vocabulary consists of hi, mama, and dada and she loves food!!!!

We were so excited when Emilee came home safe, sound, and full of stories. The girls were so happy to see their sister. You can see in a couple photos Emilee holding Ellie once Emilee took her none of us could get Ellie away she really missed Emilee it was so sweet to see.

Disneyland with Friends

We have been so lucky to have Disney passes and I take advantage and take the little girls when the older kids are at school. It is fun when we get to go with our friends for both them and me:)

More Disneyland fun:)

Emilee heads to Outdoor Ed

Emilee went to Outdoor Education which is up in the mountains for school. She was gone for 5 days and we missed her so much especially Emilee and Ellie.

Evan's Birthday

Evan's actual birthday fell on a Sunday this year so we went to Disneyland to get his "free money card" and decided to go into California Adventure to see what they did for Halloween. We got some fun pics of us and it made for a special day for Evan.

Our Date Night for Evan's Birthday!

My sister was kind enough to watch all of my kids so Evan and I could go out for his Birthday. We decided to go to Disneyland and have dinner and watch the Halloween Fireworks. The desserts we got were so yummy mine which was the pumpkin one was a pumpkin nut cake w/ a pumpkin carmel mousse topping. Evan's which was the Jack one was three red velvet lady fingers dipped in choclate w/ a raspberry sauce so yummy. We than waited for the fireworks right up in the front of the castle it was sooooo cool and enjoyed the show! It was so nice to just spend the evening with Evan:)

I love the Fall and Winter Season, they have the best holidays and I love the cooler weather! I especially love Disneyland during this time of year it is sooo fun:)

Quite A Scare!

Well we had quite the scare on Sunday night with our sweet little Ellie. The kids were playing the game Manacala which is a game that uses glass half marble pieces. Well you might be able to see where I am going with this.....anyways the older kids didn't put it away so Aubree decided she was going to play and left it on the ground. Along comes little Miss Ellie and she decided to eat the marbles. Evan and I both saw her and I took them out of her hands and we got one out of her mouth and thought okay, disaster averted...WRONG! All of a sudden Ellie started choking and I mean I had to put her head down, abdomen over my knee and do back blows on her. The marble was already to far down and luckily she was able to get it down, she was still having a hard time getting it all the way down so we took her to Choc Emergency Room. Once there Ellie got her first X-ray and the technician said "Yep, there is a marble in her stomach. Looks like you are going to have fun digging."(Pleasant image, I know) The Doctor came in and said since the marble had made it down to her stomach everything should be fine and it should come out in a few days. He also explained that I would have to look through her mess to find it...OH the JOYS of MOTHERHOOD! I am very thankful that she is going to be okay. The hospital was great we were in and out of there in an hour and you all know how amazing that is for an emergency room. Below are a few pics of Ellie waiting for the Doctor.
