Aiden will sleep ANYWHERE!

So the house was quiet and Aiden was no where to be found! As I looked and looked I found him sleeping in the closet! It was so funny. I guess he wa trying to get dressed and did not finish. He just passed out. Very cute!!

In this picture he fell asleep on the top bunk bed. SO BIG!!

In this picture he just got up on the couch and passed out! He rarely does this.

Derick's Big Day

This year Derick decided he wanted a Ben 10 birthday party, so as we wee going on planning this big Ben 10 party, towards the end of the planning we decided to change the theme to Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles. So we did. At the last minute Aunt Ashley came through and picked up all the supplies for the big day. We had pizza, because that is what ninja turtles eat, and salad and bread sticks, we did balloon swords and balloon numb chucks (thanks Todd) we had a huge pinata that would not break, and for dessert we had "pizza cake" Derick and all his friends had such a great time and so did I. Happy Birthday Derick! we love you bud.

Easter Day

Well Yes I am a little late getting this post up, but oh well. We had a great time on Easter. We decided this year that we would spend Easter with Grandma Jean and The Alemans! But before church my neighbor Leslie and her nieces and nephews and my kids did an easter egg hunt in our front yard. They all had so much fun. Then after church we were on our way to Chino, we had dinner and did the annual BIG Easter egg hunt. The Aleman's do it BIG and put big bucks in thise eggs. Gary and I wakd away with about $9.00. WHOOO!! Jamie was one of the big winners who got the $20. After we were done we took off and went to my mom's house, we hit alot of traffic that was unexpected, we were on the freway for about an hour, Thank goodness the kids had candy. Once we got to my mom's house she gave the kids there Easter baskets from her and my dad. They loved that, then we did a inside easter egg hunt, they had a great time. Overall we had a nice day, Sounds like everyone did!

Happy Birthday Derick

WOW!! My little Derick is already 7, time sure flies when your having fun right! So on Derick's birthday we made cupcakes and took them to school, he was really excited about that. Then when he got home from school we had to get ready soon, because he had a baseball game. So I made cute baseball cupcakes for the team and we all get ready to go, and my sweet husband tries to help me get out the door, grabbed the cupcakes that were in this carring case and tipped them over and they were all messed up. I was so bumbed, but got over it. Off we went to the baseball game where he hit 4 out of 4. He did so good. Later on after the game we had a little birthday party we had pizza and opened some gifts, sang Happy Birthday. We have had our friends from Idaho staying with us, and it was there little boys birthday too, so we did a doubled up and did all of the above to her little boy Caleb who tuned 5 and then off to bed. It was a very fun day. We love Derick very much and look forward to all the happiness and joy he brings to this family. Happy Birthday buddy, can't wait till your big Ben 10 party!
