Work Day with Daddy

The boys went to work with Jeff yesterday (they were off for MLK day) and they have so much fun when they go! Chops drew this picture of our family and had to post it because it was so cute.. Baby Layla is all grown up and all the boys, including Louie and excluding bald daddy, has spikey hair! Too funny.. I met them for Lunch and we went to the Lazy dog cafe which was delicious! I should have brought Louie because dogs are allowed on the porch! It was a fun day.. Wish we could have lunch together more often!

Happy 70th Birthday Mom!

Happy Birthday to the best Mom in the world!!!! (Well you know... most of the time.. when you aren't cranky and in a bad mood!!! Just kidding!!!!)
I know we can never tell you enough- thank you for all that you do for us, all that you have sacrificed for us, everything that you have taught us (besides school work since you could never help us with that!) and all the prayers that you have prayed for us! We pray that you know just how appreciative we all are (we pray for that every day) and we love you so much!
Sorry we all can't be there to celebrate with you today.. glad we got to do a mini-celebration here in Cali but we will see you hopefully in 8 short weeks- or maybe less (could be even 4!!!!). Love you mom and Happy Birthday from all of us!

32 weeks.. And counting!

I can't believe I'm already 32 weeks.. I'm feeling good although getting some restless nights and I'm not eating very good.. I'm craving Yogurtland every night- and getting it too. I can't wait for her to be here in 8 short weeks- or less. I've started to work out again after taking 3 or more weeks off from the holiday and from my family being here! It feels good to be in the gym and hope it starts helping my sleep a little more.

Chops Turns 6!

We celebrated Chops 6th Birthday yesterday (his real birthday is on the 16th- this Wednesday) and he had a blast! He invited his class and most of his classmates showed up to help him celebrate! Because Ethan's birthday is on Halloween every year - we always have a costume party so this is the 2nd costume party that Chops has had on his birthday!
The Lovin's did a repeat of Halloween and dressed up in our same costumes- the boys were Adam the Robot from Real Steel and we were Bacon and Eggs- Louie is a banana but didn't want to wear his costume!
The kids had a great time- especially with the pinata which was craziness and thanks to Rose and Roger for coming to help out (as always). Wish the rest of you could have been here! I can't believe this is the third birthday we have celebrated this year so far!!!!

My first mommy to be class

This was the first one I have taken (in Irvine) and at 31 weeks! It was great and actually run by a friend of mine from SMARTY- Alison Bishop. If you are looking for a similar class in your area- go to dads adventure.com (their parent company) and you will be able to find links to all of their classes! So great to meet so many pregnant and beautiful women that were all 6 months prego +!
