Grandma Norma comes to visit!

My beautiful Grandmother and her sweet husband Fred were visiting some family out here in Arizona and on their way home got to stop by and visit with us for a while.  It was so nice to get to see them again.  My older 3 kids were so sad they didn't get to see her, (they were still in school) but hopefully we'll get to go to California soon and visit with them again! 

Just the girls...(Drake was sleeping)

This was as good as it ever got!  Someone was either covering their faces, crying, or not looking in EVERY single picture!  And just think...this was only with half of the kids here!
I have no idea what's going on in this picture...that's why I included it!  Grandma and Fred are leaving...Haven is wearing her HOTT wig and heading in the opposite direction while Seattle appears to be sending them some "Huggie" love while sporting Cinderella shoes!  I wish I could see what was going on in their little heads! 

Seattle and Berlin posing:)

I love how you can see Shavonne and I both going for the photo in the reflection!  HA Ha!  We are such dorks, but you can't really blame us!  Grandma you look beautiful and it was so nice to see you and Fred again!  Come back and visit any time!

Spring Training 2010

Uncle Mike is in town for Spring Training!

Uncle Mike and his neighbor, Bruce come out every year to enjoy back to back spring training games... for like a week!  Not my idea of fun, but we do enjoy visiting with him...and of course Phil would never turn down an opportunity to catch a CUBS spring training game!!

I loved that he even has A's shoes!  He's a super duper A's fan!
p.s.  Everyone that knows Seattle and her obsession with undressing...can appreciate the nice gray tank I've created for her:)

We took him to Smashburger...of course...then the boys all went out and watched Alice In Wonderland (3D)...because the girls and I saw it the weekend before:)

The kids all had so much fun!  MISS YOU UNCLE MIKE!

Happy Birthday Seattle!

Seattle is 2!
I can't believe how fast time flies!  It's crazy to think that Seattle is 2 already!  Between Shavonne and I (my youngest 3)we have girls at 4, 3, 2, and nearly 1!  That's just crazy!  It's hard now, but it will be so much fun when they can really understand and appreciate how cool it will be to have built in friends close to your age! 

P.S. The baby that Seattle is holding up top...cries really loudly and she's clearly concerned!  Ha Ha!

Shavonne, Greg, Haven, and Drake came over and helped celebrate!  My mom and aunt Joanie both got to visit within weeks of her "big day" too, so she got to open even more presents!  YAY!  As you can see...her favorite gift probably cost all of $.50!  When will we learn to chuck the toys and just invest in candy?!  I'm sure our dentist and my wallet would object...but it would make for a bunch of happy kids!
