A few weeks between posts...

Hi everyone! It has only been few weeks since the last post. But for once I have taken a ton (or a ton for me) of pictures.

Thank you to everyone for my birthday wishes. I had a great day. I got a early workout in, then headed to lunch with Addy and Michelle. We filled our afternoon with a visits to Gopher Glenn (a local apple farm) and a couple of wineries. Addy was very clingy because I think she thought at any moment I was going to ditch her and leave her with Michelle.

Speaking of birthdays, Addy has received a few presents in the last couple weeks. Much mahalos!

Halloween started for us on Thursday with Farmer's market in SLO, Friday was neighborhood pumpkin carving, and a typical Halloween activities on Sunday. We almost thought our Halloween was going to cancelled when B got sick on Friday night. But he woke up Saturday ready to go, so I am going with a little bit of a sugar overload.

While all this was going on, I managed to squeeze in watching/listening to Giants games and on occasion Addy and I dressed to get the mojo loaded. HummBaby!
Addy is quite the climber and escape artist. She definitely keeps me on my toes. And yes Fairy #1 I know, "Not Safe!"

It's been a month...

Well, it has been over a month since I have updated the blog. We have been busy with soccer. I think B is finally getting the hang of things for the first few games he was that kid. You know the one who is staring off into space as the ball went by him. It took everything I had not to be that mom. But, in the big picture he is having a blast.

B has also become a big Cal Poly sports fan. At the first football game of the year, Jeff and he were asked t0 be ball boys. B scored a picture with the cheerleaders. Jeff scoped out one of the 49ers who was there watching his little brother. Last Friday was Mott Madness. A couple of the players who worked the camp remembered him and had him come down on the court with them for a picture. He was pretty amped.

For B's birthday, we bought tickets to see Montgomery Gentry in Pozo. They are one of B's favorite country groups. He has been rocking out to "Gone" ever since I can remember. When he cleans his room their CD is often blaring. The concert was a blast. A local group was one of the openers. B bought a hat so he could get it signed by the band. One of the event staff saw that B was singing and rocking out to the the MG songs offered to get try and get his "do rag" he bought signed by MG. And she did.

Addy has turned into quite the little climber. If she can climb it, she does. B's bunk bed ladder is her favorite apparatus of choice. I lost one morning while making breakfast and found on his ladder. For all you safety freaks, we keep his door shut at all times now and are teaching her to climb down. She also loves to play with her Dad and brother not matter what they are doing, which includes sticking her in a trash can.

HummBaby, the Giants are in the playoffs. I was lucky enough to be able to go with my Grandma, Uncle Joe and Auntie Gail to Game 1 of the NLDS. The atmosphere in the ballpark was incredible. And Timmy was lights out! It is a good thing I have had the Giants to watch because football season has been pretty disappointing so far.

Our family held the First Fight like a Girl mini Triathlon last weekend. We held the event to honor and in support of our cousin Joannie who was diagnosed with breast cancer earlier this year, along with other loved ones who are battling, who are survivors and who have passed from cancer. The family really rallied together to show their love. Much love and aloha to everyone!

Happy Birthday Addy!

Ok, so I promise this is the last of the heartfelt blogs for awhile. But like I said, the last 3 weeks have been filled with Clarin occasions. So much has been happening that I ended up with the shingles. After to several texts and phone calls to my inner circle, we cancelled the party and I was assured that Addy wouldn't remember, hold it against me or be the reason she has to go to therapy later in life.

Happy Birthday Addysen Malia! You are truly blessing! You have a changed our lives in only a way that you could! We can't imagine what our lives without you! You completed us! We love you! Here's to you on your first birthday and many more to come!

For those that know me you will understand when I say that I have truly met my match. She knows what she wants, she will let you know and won't stop until she gets it. She is always going full steam ahead like at B's birthday party she bounced off a wall head first (Remind you of anyone.) Addy pushes the limits and take it to the edge. A couple of weeks ago, she followed Snuka out into the ocean. I was walking beside her the whole time when I picked her up she was in about knee deep. And today while we were getting ready to open presents, Addy was standing on a chair. I told her, "on your butt." She told me something back. I told her again, she told me again then laughed. Addy Malia, this will be a fun roller coaster ride! Just remember I am your mom yesterday, today, forever and always.
