"Kid's Day" at the Art Museum


Here is Gavin with his first ever painting...he was pretty proud of it, as was I.



He was having a blast for all five minutes that he painted...then he ran off to the toy room.




A pic similar to this one was captured by a photographer from the local newspaper, he came up and asked his name and age and told me he wanted to put it in the Sunday paper...it was very cute.

Thanksgiving came and went...




Wow, I can't believe that Thanksgiving came and went so fast this year. We had a great Thanksgiving, dinner was actually at my house this year! I am not taking credit for much though, just Greenbean Casserole and a cheesecake, my Mom and Grandma did everything else. They both cooked a turkey and Grandma did a ham also...there was so much food that we could have fed another 20 people! Everything was delicious and i think we were all about to pop by the time we were done, but we had a nice time visiting and watching the kids play.

I am very thankful for all that we have been blessed with and not just "things", but for the people in my life and the relationships i have with them. The relationship that i have with Jesus is the MOST important thing of all...the fact that he died on the cross for me is just amazing...all i have to do is accept that gift, nothing more and nothing less. The knowledge and belief in Jesus' love and his death and ressurection would be number one on the list of things i am thankful for and next would be my wonderful husband and son...they make my life awesome. Then of course my friends and family who all hold a special place in my heart. I have much so much to be thankful for:)

I only took a couple pictures today, here are the cute ones.

Much needed Date Night...and it was a surprise:)

Javier surprised me lastnight with dinner at our favorite Sushi place, Blue Hashi, it was so delicious! I need to learn to make California Rolls really soon because we can't afford to eat there whenever feel like it, it was worth the money though and sooooo nice to be able to sit down and eat dinner with Javier, just the two of us.


I had read this book and loved it...i would recommend it to anyone. Really entertaining and just a good love story with twists.

I had never really read a book and then watched the motion picture, the movie was good but kinda annoying since they leave so much of the detail out from the book. Javier actually really liked the movie and we had a great evening together, thankyou honey for the wonderful night!

I thought this was hilarious! I love Paula Deen and the Food Network:)

Two Cute Boys



Calvary Chapel Harvest Party

The Harvest Party at Church was awesome this year...Gavin really enjoyed it and understood it much more this year than last. Each classroom had one or two games for the kids and after each game you got to grab a handful of candy from a bucket...so he walked out of there with a ton of candy and a big smile on his face:)


I don't remember what this game was called but he had fun pounding a nail into a log...thank goodness he has great coordination...no injuries!


Gavin with a golfclub in hand is dangerous...i was worried he was going to hit that lady!


He wouldn't give up on this one untill he landed a ring on one of those bottles...his prize was a can of rootbeer:)


He did awesome at bowling...


This was my favorite game of all...i guess the point was to see if you could hit Goliath in the head.

Halloween



This was taken at Melaleuca...Javier's mom invited us to come trick or treating where she works. Gavin had a blast walking around the building collecting candy and seeing the sights...each department was decorated in a different theme and he loved everyone else in their costumes.




It doesn't get any cuter than this...he had so much fun in his costume this year.
