Chad, Chad I don't think there are enough stars in the galaxy that match the amount of love I have for my little man. I cannot believe he's already 2 years old. I still remember finding out that I was pregnant with him and how excited John was that he is finally going to have a son. He is definitely all boy! Chad loves cars, motocycles, skateboards and loves being on boat. I must say, he is very spoiled with lots of love from his sisters, mommy and daddy. We are so in love and so proud of him, he can read all the letters in the alphabet and is being potty trained. He's a bit obsessed with the movie 'Cars'. He carries McQueen everywhere he goes! If if was up to Chad, he would be watch the movie all day and everyday. He loves his family and brings so much happiness to our lives.

So happy to be at Disneyland

My brother nick named Chloe, ChloExist because she is the sweetest and kindest little girl. Her sweet spirit brings so much love to our family. For her birthday, Chloe wanted to have a swimming party with all her friends. One of the friends she wanted to invite was in her kindergarden class and this friend is in a wheel chair. I told her that I don't think that would be a good idea because since it is a swimming party her friend would not have a good time watching everyone else swim. She thought about it for a minute then looked up at me with her big doey eyes and told me that she doesn't want to have a swimming party for her birthday because she wants to make sure ALL her friends will have a good time. We love our Chloe and are so thankful for her love and kindness.

Buffy turned 8 and was baptized by her Dad. It is such a happy event for us to have our oldest child baptized in the church. We are so proud of our girl, she has lots of energy and such love for life and loves to learn. She's like sponge that just soaks up knowledge. She has such an appreciation for the arts, especially Beethoven and Monet. She is constantly quizzing me on these two scholars. We are so blessed to have such a vibrant and intelligent daughter.

We are so proud of you Buffy

Buffy turned 8 and had a great time with a swimming party that lasted from 3 until 10 oclock at night. She made it easy for me this year by requesting an American flag cupcakes. I had fun making them.

Piper turned 4 in February this year and in many ways she is beyond her years. She is very bright and funny, and of course so pretty. I am just amazed that she can navigate on the computer as if someone has taught her. She is so eager to to all the things her older sisters can do. She keeps asking me when she can have piano lessons. She loves singing and learning how to write. She is so witty and quick with jokes. Piper has no fear and will have no problem telling you how she feels or if she is not pleased with you. She had a party at preschool and at home with 2 cakes because she could not decide between Barbie and Dora. Piper brings so much fun and joy to our family. My most independent child by far. She is motivated by chocolate and French toast. I don't know how it is possible but this child does not eat vegetables at all. I have bribe her, beg, and threaten and with very little success. I feel so guilty because she loves all the food that are so bad for her. Piper's ideal meal would be, french toast for breakfast, cake for lunch and mac-n-cheese for dinner. Nothing nutritrous. Well, she actually does love strawberries and pinapples.
