Trent is 6!!

I blinked and my man turned six years old.  Every year I have had a huge party.  According to Trent, I give all of his friends weapons on his birthday.  Here is a quick review of all of his birthday parties. 

For his 1st birthday, I threw him a Dodger Party: I gave away mini baseball bats!

His 2nd Birthday was Jake and the Neverland Pirates: I gave away Pirate Swords!

His 3rd Birthday was Ninja Turtles: I gave away the Ninja Turtle Weapons, Nun-chucks, Sais, Bo's and Katanas and their colored masks!

His 4th Birthday was Batman: It was a Nerf Shooting Party, so everyone brought their own Nerf Guns, and I gave away Water Guns, Pool noodles and Baterangs. 

His 5th Birthday was Star Wars: Revenge of the Fifth:I gave away Light Sabers!

This year, I asked Trent what he wanted for his birthday, if he wanted a big party, like every year or do something with the family?  The kid chose to have special time with the family.  So no party this year.  For his class, I had a mini party with cookies and lemon bites, instead of cupcakes.  He was more than happy to celebrate with his buddies at school. 

After School, we had dinner at Red Robbin with just our family.  He got to take Bobby Bear, his class mascot. 

Trent was sung to by the Red Robin servers and he was happy as a clam.  He had a very low key birthday and loved every second of it.

On the Friday after his birthday, we went to John's Incredible Pizza with the grandparents.  All the grandparents were there except for Apo, who couldn't get off of work :(

 Trent had the best time and he felt very loved!

Oma and Grammy with Trent
Apo and Richard were preparing to leave for the Philippines, so Trent was able to celebrate with her before she left.

To my 6 year old guy,

I love you so dearly, you are so special to me in so  many ways.  You are tender and loving and in the same moment you are rough and tumble and TOUGH! You are the definition of a BOY! You play rough and you play hard and yet you stop what you are doing to give me the sweetest kisses.  You sneak into my bed in the middle of the night to snuggle with me and daddy.  You are the sweetest, most thoughtful little guy with the biggest heart and you love your people well. You have the softest heart for Jesus.  We are so blessed by you and I pray you have many, many more years of love and happiness!

Taelyn's class represents California Baptist University.  I had the opportunity to chaperone her class on a tour of the campus. When we first got there, our favorite babysitter, who is now a freshman at CBU met us and joined us for snack time. :-)

I love the fact that Taelyn is learning about colleges.  She LOVES this college and wants to go there.  I pray that she chooses to go to CBU, its far enough for her to be independent, but close enough for me to stalk her life.  >:-)

October Fun

October is flying by! We started our month with a full morning at church.  Taelyn is in the Christmas Musical, so she needs to be at church at 7:45am every Sunday.  After church, we went to a birthday party for my nephew. 

Party hopping at its finest! After my nephew's party, we met up for some Thai food to Celebrate our friend, Ryan's birthday.

How cute are these two?

My mom has Monday's off, so she came to hang out with me.  We went to Taekwondo, Soccer and then we went to Johnny's Taco's to watch the Chiefs play during Monday Night Football.  

Taelyn and Trent had their six month dentist check up and I am so proud to report that they both had no cavities!!

Trent has been rocking in Taekwondo!  He had a Belt Testing.  Oma and Opa came to support him.  He is now a Yellow Cheetah Belt!

September Wrap Up

September came and went and so many fun things had happened.  October seems to have been flying by just as quickly. After the Ice Cream Museum, the same week we went to the LA County Fair.  It was SO busy!!! We went on the last Saturday before the fair ended and we will never do that again!  If we weren't with Tiffani and Tylia, I don't think we would have even made it into the fairgrounds because the traffic was horrendous .  When we finally made it in, it was hard to even walk around. 

Me, Tiff and the kids

The kids are getting so big and are tall enough to ride most rides!

This was the sweetest thing!

We had to have ice cream!
 The fair, despite being SO crowded, was fun because we were with some of our most favorite people. 

I was able to have a very much needed girls night out!

Taelyn has been taking a break from dance and so far, it has been the BEST decision she has made.  We have really been enjoying our extra time playing outside and hanging with the kids in the neighborhood.  These kids have it made!  Everyday, after school, we finish homework, do our chores around the house and then go outside and play until the sun goes down.  It is so awesome!  

The kids had a in service day from school and so we met up with some friends in Oak Glen

 These kids are such sweet friends! Its always so nice when they have friends who are siblings also! makes for an easier play date. :-)

After Oak Glen, we met up with some other friends and Chick Fil A.  What a really fun day! This is another sibling set!
Love these sweet kids!
September was a great fun filled month! So thankful for our friends and the experiences that were had!
