happy easter!

m&m woke up to their new banner and their basket. the basket was filled with goodies, but as always, it's the cheap candy they like. i'll tell the easter bunny to downsize next year.

we went to st. rose for mass with the advento cousins.

then went to visit grandma letty.

then went to visit lily and the mislan household.

there was a party going on there, so the kids were running around and playing. did an egg hunt there as well.

old videos

one of my favorite things to do with free time is watch old family videos. the kids can see how they acted when they were younger. it does make me sad though. i miss them being so small. it makes me want to reach in and grab them.

these are two of my personal favorites of them together. the first one is from 2009, the kids dancing to music coming from a kids' music player. micah was 1 and malia 5.


this one was from an early mother's celebration in 2010. this was at the ferry landing in coronado after we went on the surrey bike. 

it's hard to believe how much they've grown in so little time. i could watch these over and over again, they make my heart so happy. love these kids!

ladybug hunters

that's what the kids said they were, ladybug hunters. they found a lot in the backyard and tried to put them all into one spot to be a family.

micah is looking at the ladybug in his hand in this picture. find the other one.

happy Palm Sunday

me: it's Palm Sunday
micah: Palm Sunday?
me: yes, we get palm leaves at church
micah: last time daddy made me a gun
me: no, that was a cross

ayayay, my boy turns anything into a gun or sword!

this year we donated some money and got the fancy palms made by "hands for Christ."

after mass, we went to the Sousa's house for Nina's birthday and did an egg hunt there with the cousins.

it's almost Easter!

honor roll time again

this time for malia. she got perfect attendance too.

funny to think that this girl occasionally gets detention for messing around in class or talking to much, but she still manages to do well.

since she got detention yesterday, she wasn't allowed to watch tv or play on the computer. so she went to her other love - drawing.

i love all of her drawings. i hope she keeps at it. and her school is expanding their arts program, so she will definitely benefit from that.
