March 13: It got HOT today. For the first time in months, I left the house without a jacket! It was so warm in the car (even with the AC on) that both kids fell asleep on the way home from the store! That NEVER happens!!!

March 13: Eric had T-ball practice today.

March 13: Me: Eric, I'm so excited for u to go to baseball today!

March 7: just got done registering Eric for kindergarten, the kids were so naughty in the office i didn't have time to feel sad that my baby is growing up. the office lady gave them markers, so evie colored on her hands and the walls. they were both jumping all over the place and standing on the chairs, Eric was being a transformer or beastwar guy, i'm not sure, it was awful. but the lady told me i had to stay there to fill out the paperwork, so everyone in the office got to deal with the consequences on that one.

March 9: I went to a scrapbooking crop from 6pm to midnight. I have never been to one at this store before but i went because it was their last one ever (the store is closing down). i was a bit nervous at first because i didn't know anyone, but everyone was really nice and there were snacks and prizes (and i won one!) and I asked if anyone might be interested in meeting after the store closes to crop and got an overwhelming response! I was so excited!!!

March 11: Eric started T-ball today! he had his first practice. it took a lot out of him, he was in bed EARLY and had trouble getting up for school in the morning!

Eric took this photo of StarScream, his favorite transformer...

These are my photos of the week:

Feb 19: On the way to school Eric and Scott talk:
Dad, you see those clouds over there? That means it’s going to rain.
Yeah, probably while you’re at school. It should be done when I pick you up at noon.
Good, rain makes the world sad
Why does it make the world sad?
… Nevermind, I just don’t understand it.
Well, that’s my job to help you understand.
…I thought you’re job was to go to work?

Evie calls granola bars: odi-ba (she ate 9 of these today, she must be growing)

Mook is watching the hail stones fall. It's like Mother Nature is playing ball with him and he loves it! (there is a picture to go with this)

Eric says, "MOM! I do NOT want to hear that noise in my room!"
I say, "What noise? The hail?"
Eric says, "YES!!!"
I say, "I'm sorry hunny, I'm not in charge of the weather."
Eric says, "humphf!" and stomps off

Feb 14: Eric and I have been working for weeks so that he could write his own name on the back of all his valentines. He finished in time and they look GREAT!

Feb 18: Evie had an eyelash stuck just under her eye. I got it off of her face and put it on my finger. I told her to blow it away and make a wish. She said, "I wish for feee!" ('feee' is the word she uses for her blankets)

Feb 5: Evie hasn’t taken a nap all week, I think she might be officially over nap-taking!

Feb 7: I’m having my laparoscopic cholecystectomy (gall bladder removal) today. I wake up from my surgery, groggy and in a lot of pain, and the anesthesiologist tells me I have sleep apnea and need to have it checked out immediately so I don’t die in my sleep. What is it about this last year? 36 years old seems to have brought out so many medical issues for me! I hope 37 will be a better year full of healthiness! Before my surgery I lost 9 pounds and I hope to keep loosing and even getting in some aerobic exercise as soon as my body is healed. A big thank you to everyone for all the well-wishes, flowers, and help during this time when I can't pick up my own children to hug them - the pain is unbearable, but not being able to pick up my kids is even worse. Thankfully each day is a bit better.

Feb 3: Tony came over to hang out with us and watch the Superbowl, what an exciting game it turned out to be at the very end! I wish the 49ers could have completed their comeback the rest of the way to take the win, maybe next time.

I went to the doctor about sinus infection and was told I have hypothyroidism, I will have to be on medication for the rest of my life. I have to fast before I take it and then wait an hour to eat after I take it, and no caffeine for the first several weeks.

Jan 15: went to the dr about my gall bladder pain, he wants to take my gall bladder out Feb 7!

Jan 16: Evie sees dirt on the kitchen floor and says to me, "Mommies, mess! u clean it!"

Jan 17: for the last two days, when Evie needs help, she says it in spanish, lol! "ayudame, ayudame!"

Jan 18: we went to Monterey for my bday (and scott’s work conference) LOVED seeing the ocean and breathing in that salty sea air, it's been way too long. Took the kids to the aquarium and they had a blast petting seaweed, starfish, and decorator crabs! i got to see the sunrise which i haven't seen in a long time.

Scott went for early morning runs, the kids and I went out to breakfast and played on the beach (the first day we had to stay on the beach for hours waiting for our hotel room to be ready), the kids called room service while I was in the bathroom (and caused management to do a wellness check, but it turned out ok because they brought toys, lol!) Being near the ocean again was so amazing, I really miss it. After Scott was finished with his conference, we woke up the next day and took the kids to the Aquarium, it was a really special treat for all of us! The aquarium has a special toddler play area that the kids just loved! They also really enjoyed the petting ponds, and the penguins!
As we were talking to the main entrance of the aquarium, we saw a book, bear, and railroad wares shop. The shop was inside an old train caboose. We had to take a pic for Papa Steve!
Our first day on the beach, both kids fell in the ocean. Eric decided to strip down to his underwear and when he found a big stick and a giant pile of seaweed, I felt the book "The Lord Of The Flies" coming to life right before my eyes, lol!
Traveling with littles is always an adventure. I was hoping I'd brought enough diapers and wipes for Evie, and I had to bring peanut butter and graham crackers because it's the only thing either kiddo is willing to eat at the moment, along with each kiddo's favorite juice. You can see them sitting and eating peanut butter in the tiny extra photo below. The hotel room table had a glass cover on it and the kids were able to get peanut butter under the glass cover! I had to take the table apart to get it clean!
The kids loved jumping on the beds and jumping from one bed to the other. I was worried they wouldn't sleep well in a strange place with strange beds and strange sounds. I brought a lot of items from home to make things seem familiar, like blankets and toys and pillows, but by the end of each day they were so exhausted, it wasn't even an issue.
On our last day there, I called and ordered a crab-salad sandwich from the hotel restaurant. The kids and I got to go in the elevator to get to the restaurant and they thought that was the best thing ever. My sandwich took a very long time, and the kids and I ended up riding the elevator up and down and up and down until finally my sandwich was ready. They were both very sad when my sandwich was ready, lol!

On the way home we stopped in Santa Nella to get pastries from Pea Soup Anderson's. I was excited to have the kids step into the photo board for a photo -- I have fond memories of my childhood, always stopping here during long car trips for yummy pastries and taking photos in the photo board! It's a very long car ride for littles. It was good to stop, change a diaper, clean up messes, and stretch little legs.
