Our little Frankenstein


Cole having fun at the pumpkin patch & Phillips Farm.

Mommy's dream-a little farm boy.


Las Vegas

We had so much fun in Las Vegas. We vacationed with the wonderful Keifer family. It was so nice and relaxing, I didn't want to come home. Those Keifer kids are somethin' else. I sure love hanging out with them.

I think I should leave this one alone. All the captions I can think of are not appropriate.

Bath time fun.

Isn't he so adorable?

Class of 1998

I absolutely loved High School. I had a blast. I was very excited to attend my 10 year renunion. Katie wasn't so excited but she is a great friend and agreed to come with me. I think we had more fun shopping for outfits, make-up and jewelry than we did at the actual reunion. Getting dressed up is always fun.

Most of the girls from the old high school crew showed up and it was really nice to see them and catch up.

Unfortunately I wasn't feeling that well that day but I was determined to at least make it there for the beginning and to see friends. My migraine through out the day just kept progressing and by 9:30 I was throwing up and on my way to emergency. Poor Katie not only was dragged to our renunion but didn't even get to stay long and then spent the rest of the evening in Emergency. We sure looked funny at the Kaiser Vallejo at 10 p.m. in our cocktail dresses. The looks were unforgettable, at least what I can remember. After about 3 hours they finally saw me, and that is the last of the memories. Later that week I was looking through my phone and realized Katie wanted to capture the end of our night on film. I don't remember any of the photo shoot at the hospital. By that time they had really pumped me up with the good stuff. Katie sure is a trooper and a wonderful friend that puts up with so much. I love you Katie-May. Class of 1998-SSC


A Great Day For Dave

On Sept. 6th we took Cole to his first Giant's game. I think Dave has been dreaming of this moment for a while now. He was definitely on Cloud 9. We had a blast. Our Friend Damien works for the Giants and he made it all happen for us. We had a wonderful evening and shared it with other crazy baseball fans. When Ang, Damien, and Dave get together I quickly become silent when sports come up. All 3 of them are so into it and I never have anything to add. I do love going to baseball games and I am a Giant's fan by marriage. My favorite part is the food. Cole was so good. His only issue was he wanted to play. He was all decked out in his Giant's gear, even Giant's socks. I can't wait until next season.

Cole's first trip to the Zoo

Brody, Zack Jake, Rylee, Tyler, Hannah,Maya and parents, and Auntie Angela all came to the Zoo. We had a big group. Cole was not very interested in the animals. He definitely did not like the amphibian sections. The little yellow frogs in the glass cases were very scary. He also freaked out a little when I tried to force him to pet a goat. I don't think the forcing helped.

I love my Aunts

Several weeks ago my Aunts came into town for a cousins wedding. My Dad is the only boy and then there are 4 girls. When they all get together it is such a site. They all only see each other about once every 2 years or so but when they all get together it is all laughs. I really love watching them. My Aunts are all silly, and giggly and my Dad makes fun of them even though he is just as silly. My Aunt Leila is a great cook. I know how to cook some Arabic food but nothing compares to hers. I had the works and I probably won't get to have those treats again unless she makes them for me. One thing we can always count on is my Aunt Nadias belly dancing. She really thinks she is one. I took some video and it is great. They are a crazy bunch. I love spending time with them. I only wish I could see them more often.
