I told you guys I was not very good at this blogging thing. There has been nothing posted since 2009. I am however, trying to make new efforts to keep up on this. In family news, we are awaiting the arrival of number three (another girl) and we are enjoying our two wonderful girls. We are actually awaiting to hear how the offer we put on our first house (we are going to be home owners!!!). We are hoping to open escrow Monday. I have so many pictures of the girls but they are all over the place, so I am hoping to put some together to post by the end of the week. It is hard to believe that my two babies are walking. Sariah is not yet talking but she is running all over the place. Kylie is a piece of work. She has so much attitude for a little gal. She picks up the simplest things and yet we have no idea where she gets it from. The other day we were at Target and she was wanting stickers from the cashier. The cashier happened to be out of stickers and Kylie just put her head down and slumped her shoulders. She was so down that I asked her what was wrong. She responded to me but I did not hear her so I asked again. She turned to me and said, "No stickers sucks." Then put her head back down and slumped her shoulders again and continued to walk to the door. This not only reminds us that they are listening to everything that is verbalized around them but that the smallest things have the deepest meaning for them. Sariah is just a cuddle bug, she is the first to give hugs and loves to give kisses that are all about a lot of tongue. Anyone who has had a little one will understand what I mean by this. The next one to come is also going to be her own unique self. Thomas is going to be completely overrun by gals because Goober (Gizmo was killed last President's Day by our neighbors dog :( ) is even a girl. He says he does not mind but give it a few years and he might be saying something different. Work is going well and Thomas is half way done with school. The next one is not too far off and we are still having a hard time with the name.... Hopefully we will have something set in stone when the big day comes. We are also planning on a huge photo shoot with everyone in the family come the arrival of the little one (Melissa I wish you were closer so we could do one together). I love my kids!!!! One of these days I will figure out how to post the pictures upright. Enjoy the rest of the weekend and let me know if you are still out there and following this lacking blog.

On to the more beautiful munchkin in the world!!! Our little terror is now very good at crawling and finds herself in many places that she is not suppose to be in. She also sticks EVERYTHING in her mouth which also keeps us on our toes. When she talks to you she looks so serious. It is a struggle every day to leave her to go to work but the huge smile on her face when I get home is worth it. She is standing up better and seems like walking is not too far off. Sorry that some of the images are the wrong direction. I was just posting them right away instead of changing them to the right direction. I can believe how big she is getting and how strong she is becoming. She chases Gizmo around because she wants to play with him. He runs from her most of the time but sometimes it is nice to see them play well together. She hurts him sometimes but not on purpose, she just doesn't know any better yet. Her hair is getting so long!!! It is in her eyes but I cannot bring myself to cut her hair. Her personality is definitely coming through and she is experimenting with trying to demand her way. We love her so much.

For a family update.... we have done some traveling with family. San Fransisco is definitely unique. I think another trip in the future will be warranted just to be able to see and experience everything (pictures to come soon). Kylie loves to absorb her surroundings as we walk around different stores and around our house. Thomas is well into school and doing good. Work is going well for me. It is a new adventure every day where I am not sure what to expect. It is challenging some times but I hope it will soon reach a normality. I found out today that my new nephew just joined us a few hours ago. I can't wait to meet him. I also have another "adopted nephew" to be here in a few months, and another in January. Our family is definitely growing fast but we love it. We miss those we cannot see very often and hope you know we think if you often. Hope all is well is everyone. Until next time.....

I am really bad at this whole keeping the blog updated thing....I was asked if I would post more pics from my wedding so I thought I would do that before I move on to Kylie. Our wedding was very simple but it was a great day. Here are some more pictures. We were able to catch a beautiful part of the day right between rain bursts. San Diego is beautiful and we are hoping to visit the place where we were married again soon.

Hey everyone,
I wanted to post some pictures and will do my best to try and keep this up. Please encourage me whenever you like.

Thomas and I were married almost three years ago and our beautiful Kylie is 4 months. She is already trying to crawl and is in the beginnings of cutting teeth. She loves to talk (scream) and smile. Gizmo is doing well also. We all miss our friends and family whom we have had to move away from recently but we have you all in our hearts.

I am going to try and make it a point to post new pictures and updates more often now that we are getting into a routine.
