Hmm......7 random facts...... Ok, so here goes, I've posted some of these random facts before though....
1. When buying books, I never take the book from the top of the pile....it must be a "virgin" book.
2. I don't like checking books out of the library, because they smell funny, and I'm always worried someone took it into the bathroom...eeewww (remember that episode of Seinfeld where George tries to return a book to Barnes and Noble, but it's been flagged that he took it into the bathroom?)
3. I watch at least 2 episodes of Friends everyday.
4. I love Korean Dramas.
5. I love being a Mom!!! It's the best job ever!
6. When I graduated from High School, I almost joined the US Coast Guard.
7. I hate wearing socks and flat shoes....I know I wear flip flops alot, but it's more of a convenience than what I like. :D
and my lil' sis
I know, I only tagged 5, but everyone else I think will complete the tag has already been tagged!

Take some photos and forget about the craziness for awhile and just have fun! Princess J is such a HAM! Little J is still under the weather and his fever still hasn't broken. Thankfully, (knock on wood) he has not had any breakthrough seizures. He's still his happy little self, but he's obviously fighting some infection, since his fever is ranging between 99.9 and at it's highest 102.5. He continues to eat and play the same, just a bit of coughing and runny nose. Tomorrow, we are going to take him to the pediatrician to just have him checked out. We are hoping for a speedy recovery, as I know he misses his fun at school...and they told me they miss him too. When you have a sick kiddo in the house, it makes your plans for the week change. We had plans to get the kids their Easter finery for photos with the Easter Bunny and then actually visiting the Easter Bunny. We, finally got to the mall today to get the clothes. Princess J loved being hammy at the mall. As we walked in, she was waving at everyone with both hands and making sure that everyone heard that she had arrived. It ws so stinkin' cute! We finally found Princess J her Easter Dress as well as a dress for her birthday at Macy's. Why do I always forget to look there in the begining. They always have such cute stuff, and a lot of times it's on sale. Little J was a little harder to shop for, since he's getting to that age, where all the boy stuff just starts to look the same and it's not all that unique. We finally found him a cute big boy outfit at The Children's Place....along with a cute little coat to go with Princess J's birthday dress. I can't wait to get the photos done now!!!! I have to say, that today while we were shopping, the staff at the Children's Place was ON FIRE with their awesome customer service...and they were super friendly. Just thought I'd throw that out there.
On another note, why didn't I think of this? The Miche Bag....what a brilliant idea!!! Can't wait to start using it and switching up the look!

I cannot believe that this little girl is almost a one year old! It still seems like yesterday that she made her arrival. She is such a joy to have around....even with her sassy little attitude. She is doing so many things and trying new things everyday. She just amazes us. Currently her newest thing is standing up on her own without holding on. She is so proud of herself and even claps for herself. It is so stinkin' cute! Her favorite thing is to play peek-a-boo. She will pull that blanket up over her head and pull it down laughing excitedly the entire time. I think if given the opportunity, she would do it all day and night!
Grandpa and Grandma have been here for a couple of weeks now and Princess J is getting a little bit of spoiling from them.....she loves sitting and watching tv with Grandpa....he's a good cushion! Little J loves having Grandpa in the back seat with him. Whenever we go shopping, Grandpa and Little J sit in the car and nap together.
Princess J and I joined a new mommy meetup group. Last week, they had a meet at our local park, so we headed down to explore the park! Princess J loved every minute of it!!! This was really her first time to explore the park and get dirty. Since Little J is in school, it's a little easier to get out for a little while with her and let her do some exploring. It looks like they have a lot of great meetups planned, so hopefully we can work a few more into our schedule.
The first time she was on the swing, she tolerated it for a few minutes and then made it clear she wanted off. I let her play in the sand and crawl around and then she was ready for another go at the swing. This time she laughed her self silly with the wind in her face.
It's so nice that the weather is making weekends a fun time to be outdoors lately. Today was so beautiful, that before the kids and I headed out the door, I had to plop them on the grass and try to get a couple of shots of them together. You know how it goes with kids, when one smiles, the other looks away or closes their eyes. I love this one of Little J trying to pull Princess J's bow off of her head. She had just gotten done taking it off and mommy putting it back on. Just as soon as I walked away, Little J decided to try and help her cause and pull it off himself.
You may have noticed a firstgiving button on the side of my blog. This is another fundraising activity that we will be participating in to raise funds for the Angelman Syndrome Foundation. We will be walking in the walk-a-thon on May 17th in Sacramento. I'll put more information up as it gets closer. In the meantime, if you'd like to donate, we would greatly appreciate the support. If you would like to participate and walk with our team, we would love that as well!
