Happy Halloween

Happy Halloween, originally uploaded by jwlphotography.

It's been a crazy couple of weeks, and we are finally moved in to the new home. We still have a garage full of boxes that need unpacking and are in desperate need of some blinds for the windows. The kids are loving the new house, running around, climbing up and down the stairs. Kayla is sleeping in her own room, which is an amazing feat in itself, given she has been sleeping with us for the past 2 years. I'm so proud of her : )

Kayla had her picture taken by LIFETOUCH studios a few weeks back at her preschool. I love the expression on her face. I can only imagine what the photographer was trying to do to get her to smile. You'd figure she'd be used to a camera by now.

In other news, we are FINALLY moving! We signed our escrow papers yesterday afternoon and the keys should be in our hands by next Tuesday. I am so excited, and I'm sure the kids are gonna love running around the new house.

Chabot Space & Science Center

We took Kristin to the Chabot Space & Science Center for her birthday today. We wanted to bring her somewhere indoors since the weather forecast had predicted rain, but what do you know, it ended up being pretty dry all day. Either way, Kristin had a great day.




Kristin is proving herself as a big 5 year old sister by holding Kayla up. 


"Be right back, heading to the moon."


This cockpit was pretty darn cool. 





Chabot Space & Science Center

After Chabot, we headed to these amazing redwood forests and snapped a few images.



We then headed to Macaroni Grill for dinner and they were kind enough to bring out her desert with a candle. She had the biggest smile when she saw it....


and to end the night, we had a cake at home for her which she still had a small slice of.

Little Kristin, she's not so little anymore. Today she turns 5 years old. I can't believe how quickly time has gone by.

Happy birthday big K.

milk, it does a body good.......

It's too bad the kids don't like drinking it anymore. When Kayla was drinking from a bottle, she could literally consume a gallon a week. In the mornings, she would drink 12 ounces of milk easily. Now, she barely drinks 2-3 ounces. We have to pack a sippy cup for her to bring to school every day. Now, Kristin.....it takes her almost an hour to drink her cup of milk, and it's only 6-7 ounces. What is it with kids and drinking milk?
