My Lovely Friend!

Danielle and her cute little boy, Anthony came to visit us for a week. We had so much fun, I miss Danielle A LOT!! We shopped, we played at DisneyLand and the beach, she even colored my hair for me!! It was so fun to get to spend that time with her. She's such a great mother to her little boy and it's fun to see her in that role. Thanks for coming Danielle & Anthony. We miss you guys already!!!

This is my new nephew Ace Striker. He is the cutest little thing! I don't know how Dan & Christine got such an easygoing baby, but they did! It's so fun to hold a newborn baby again (no, I do not want another one!). I'm really glad that they will be here in So Cal for a few more years so that I can watch Ace grow into a little boy. Ashlyn is plotting her revenge on Dan (teaching Ace a few things) for all of the teasing Dan's done to her the past few years.

4 Years Old!

Gabe has turned 4! It's true, they grow up fast. He is quickly becoming his own little person with his own opinions and thoughts. His interests are XBOX (I am not a fan of this), anything that has to do with cars or trains, Legos, and his bike.

We celebrated his birthday with a combined party for him and his buddy (they are a week apart and have the same friends) last weekend. We had a luau! The kids all had lots of fun.

Then on his actual birthday, he and I went up to DisneyLand and met up with my cousin Katie and her two little ones. We got there right when they opened at 10am and we actually got on 8 rides before leaving at 1:30. Not bad! Gabe got a "Happy Birthday" button and a birthday phone call from Goofy.

It's hard to think that he will be 5 years old in just a year and headed to Kindergarten. I'll definitely be cherishing this next year as it will be the last for us to spend all day together.
