Graduation from PepperdineI can’t thank you enough for all the many things you’ve done for all of your kids! We love you, and appreciate the many sacrifices you’ve made for us.

O.K. Andy and I are sort of excited…Recently I’ve been working with Bella on Rhymes.  There is an episode of her FAVORITE show Ni Hao Kai Lan where the little Koala Tolee learns to rhyme, and she really likes to do that, so yesterday, we worked on Rhymes, and she pulled out this gem…ENJOY!


OK…so maybe we got a little ahead of ourselves there.  But even though it’s not an EXACT rhyme, at least we know she’s headed in the right direction, even if her steering is veering a little to the left.


Have a fun rhyme to share?

HAPPY EASTER!!

I just wanted  to share a few pics of Our Easter Celebration.  Andy, Bella and I joined my best friend Jaime, and her family for Easter services and a mini-Egg Hunt followed by Easter Supper.  We had a good time, and the kids loved meeting the Easter Bunny and searching for Easter Eggs.

Naomi is not so sure about the GINORMOUS Bunny her dad is trying to pawn her off to

Naomi is unsure of her Father's motives in asking her to hug a GINORMOUS basket holding-candy dealing Bunny----I don't blame her!!


Bella on the other hand....sees the candy basket....

Spring has Sprung!

I’m trying to teach Bella about Spring, so we’ve been working on growing her Garden…She is so cute about it, she wears her little flip-flops outside, and makes sure to water them everyday.  Here are some pics chronicling the process.

Just planted the seeds....not much to look at
