Its Pumpkin Time!

Its Pumpkin time!!! At the pumpkin patch we picked up a great pumpkin. The nest thing to do was to carve it. Ethan and Bridget jumped at the chance to play in a pile of slim and goo. They got their spoon and were excited to clean out the pumpkin. This was our first time and it was really a lot of fun. After getting all the seeds out, daddy carved a cool spider on our pumpkin. Unfortunately it didn't last too long, but looked great in the house for a few days.

Lombardi Ranch 2009

I love Halloween time! Its so much fun. We were able to start of the Halloween season with a fun trip to Lombardi Ranch. It is amazing to see how much the kids have grown and changed since last year. We had a great time, ridding the train, dancing to the music, eating corn and running around. We got a big pumpkin and the kids got to pick out there own little tiny pumpkin. It was such a wonderful day.

Happy 2nd Birthday!

On Sept 26th Ethan and Bridget turned two!!!!! Crazy! What a ride it has been. The weekend of their birthday we decided to go camping up at Carpenteria(our favorite place) so we held their birthday party the Sunday before. It was a lot of fun. They were so excited about the cars and faeries decorations and cake. They were very excited about the cupcakes!! And the presents were to die for. Our friends Tommy and Cole sent us present all the way from Boston. They got tons of toys. It was all topped off by two new bikes, from Grandma and Grandpa. Ethan was so excited we was shaking. Bridget loved that she had a place for her new baby. It was a fun birthday and I can not believe I was two, two year olds.

Two years ago

Two years ago at 29 1/2 weeks pregnant, Bridget and Ethan were born. It was a scary and happy day all in the same. It had been a very hard journey. I was ready for it to come to an end but very nervous about the journey that was about to begin. Bridget and Ethan just turned two and I started to look at the first pictures of them and took a trip down memory lane. I was surprised at what I saw. When we printed out pictures, we tried to find the ones that didn't make then look so small or scary so those are all the ones i have. I rarely shared the ones that made them look, well, they way they looked. It had been a while since I had seen the ones of the day they were born. I am so emotional thinking of how tiny and how fragile they were. And I am so blessed when I see them now and how much they have overcome. Just recently people have stopped asking me if they were preemies,and I take that as a sign that they have truly overcome that part in there life. The blessing in my life are great. Look at these tiny babies and remember that miracles do exist and two of them live at my house.
