Happy Mother's Day!

I rarely get Eve to take pictures with me, but I managed to get this one.
Stealing kisses, I deserve them!
Manti is getting so big already and it is so fun to see his little personality come out.

He's too cute!
Driving already, they grow so fast.
Eve went to a birthday party on Saturday and there were 5 girls all together and they took them to the beauty school to get their hair and nails done and then they went out for lunch. It was a great idea, all the girls were dressed up beautifully in pink of course.
Her hair was so pretty with curls and little pink flowers in it.
This picture cracks me up. Watch out it's the Hyper Hypo!!!
Eve reminds me of "swinger girl" from the cartoon show Recess, she's absolutely nuts! I think this is her last year on that swing set, she's gonna break it.
Last year we went to the tulip gardens and I decided I didn't care what it took I was planting a bunch in my yard so that I would have them this Spring, I am so glad I did. I planted a couple hundred all around my yard, mostly in the front in pinks and purples, my favorite.
This was my Mother's Day present from the kids, they are so beautiful. I love roses they are so elegant and classic, I could never get sick of them.
This picture is awesome, for those of you who know Jackson, I know you are all laughing really hard because this is the epitome of Jackson. I have a friend, Sarah who was talking on her blog about her children having some sort of disorder when it comes to their talking, it is abnormally loud and they don't seem to notice it. This is something that is an everyday occurrence for them and it is just who they are, so that is why I bring this up- Jackson has a serious problem, it's like he looses all control when there is someone taking a picture of him, I would really like to know if there is a term for this too. I've made comments before about the many faces of Jackson, but I am saddened to say it has gotten worse, much worse, I am afraid for him, his future girlfriends will have to have a sense of humor or he will never marry. I love, love this boy and him being the way he is makes me love him even more.
I noticed Manti being very interested in our eating and drinking habits, following our every move, so I thought I would try the cereal again and he actually enjoyed it this time around. I have to confess that I don't know if I am ready for the solids phase yet, it's a lot of work and messy, but it makes it all worth it when you see their faces light up with the excitement, something new and much better tasting than formula- I am sure.
Eve loves to get up in the morning and be a big girl and get herself all ready for the day, she happened to be especially cute this day so we had to capture it.

This was Manti's first experience with rice cereal and he wasn't so fond of it, so I thought I would wait a bit more.
He looks like a chipmunk, packing it all away.

Being Sick Sucks!!!

Well, to add to my former post, I felt terrible by the end of the night again and by the morning it was just plain horrible. I couldn't take it any longer so I went to get a throat culture because my throat was on fire and I couldn't swallow at all. I seriously don't remember being sick like that since I was about 6 years old. I was pretty positive it was strep. I went in to Kaiser and the nurse told me I looked awful and that she was pretty much sure it was positive and if it wasn't that I'd have to see a doctor right away. I had a 101.5 degree temp. and sure enough it came out positive for strep. I have absolutely no idea how I got it which is why it is really scary to me. Anyway, I've been laid up on the sofa and my bed for the last 30 something hours and the medicine has made a huge difference. I feel remarkably better already, I am so glad I went to get tested because I would have ended up in the hospital, it was really that bad.
