Scarlett Ann - Twelve and Thirteen Months

This post comes a little late in posting... But, I don't want to leave anything out on blogging about Miss. Sassy.

12 months brought 5 teeth, 19.11 lbs (50%), and 31 inches (100%). She can say mama, dada, hi, waves, give kisses, clap, sass, and much more. She's adorable in every way.

We celebrated her all month long! I will have separate blogs for all that we did for the holidays! But, until then... here are a few photos from her at 12 months, and 13 months.

Our sweet girl.
At her doctor's appointment for her first year baby well.
13 months moved right along. We went from her first birthday, to Thanksgiving, and then right into Christmas! It was a busy season for us. But, it was incredible!

Little mama got all the Frozen stuff a baby could ask for. :)
 She loves to cuddle with mommy!
My babies.
At 13 months our girl LOVES FROZEN!

I mean... LOVES Frozen. Even if she's in mid cry... I can turn on the movie and she starts to dance. It's adorable. 

She doesn't like to be confined. This girl is a mover and a shaker. She likes to walk around, talk, and get into things. She doesn't like the car seat or stroller. Anything that can hold her back makes her cranky. It makes driving and shopping super fun! HA HA. She's a busy, smart, and sassy girl. And I love everything about her.

Everything is moving much quicker with her. We are always busy now. I miss the days were I could leisurely take walks with the boys and not have anywhere to go. I make sure Scarlett and I are having our special time when the boys are at school, and all together.

Sweet babies of mine. :)

Asher's Christmas play

My kiddos are constantly making us proud. In all different kinds of ways. It's incredible to see my babies grow into little boys. As much as I miss my 3 and 2 year old running through the house... and our biggest outings being the park, and Disneyland... I love seeing them grow. Elementary school, sports, birthday parties, etc. The conversations are more meaningful as they start to ask more in-depth questions as well. I feel so incredibly thankful for them. Think I may just go kiss one now! ha ha. I can just hear them... "mom, your so silly!"

Back to the blog about the Christmas play! HA! Asher was asked to be Angel Gabriel in the school's Christmas program. He brought home his lines and told me he already had it memorized and that he works on it at school. I'd try and get him to say his lines daily... and he would... quickly, and move on. No big deal kind of attitude. 

The day of the play, I made his costume, he had his run-through, and he was ready to go! 

So ready... that when the director of the school got up to pray and introduce everyone, he marched right up to her and asked for the microphone. Everyone started laughing... It was hilarious and so darn cute! He was excited to get the show started. 
Asher did a great job. I had tears of joy watching him. I'm such a sap since having kids! We are so proud of our kids. I hope they continue to participate and have fun in school events! 
Here are some of the pictures we took. We also have a video we bought from the school! I can't wait to see it this week sometime! 
 Asher and his teacher. She's amazing! We love all of the teachers we've had at this school. Very blessed to have had all but one teacher in this school. All fabulous. They love the Lord, our children, and education! The children have fun learning and playing! What more can a mom ask for?
 My supportive family! So lucky to have my uncle and aunt. We love them so very much!

November - Thanksgiving 2016

November was a busy month with Scarlett's ear tube surgery, family in town celebrating her first birthday, and then family in town for Thanksgiving. Thanksgiving is a holiday we always spend with Grant's dad and stepmother. It's always a great time spent, eating good food, drinking good wine, and catching up! I look forward to their visit every year! 

The kids just love seeing their pops and Ciney also! Here are some pictures from their visit with us! 
Scarlett LOVES dogs! It's so cute. Most babies are annoyed or cry around dogs. Perhaps its because we have 2? This is where Scarlett spent most of her time while visiting our neighbors. With their dog, Bruce.
 My boys!
 We braved the after Thanksgiving sales so we could buy our Christmas tree and I could start decorating for Christmas. Shocker that Scarlett grabbed the Elsa decoration!
 Pops and Ciney!
 Scarlett and one of her besties, Ana. Brunching it. :)
 She's too much! So much personality!

Halloween 2016

I'm the happiest around holidays. I love everything around fall also. I start gearing up for all the fun that's to come. I've always loved the holidays, but since having kids I love it even more. How is that even possible? Well, it is. Seeing their little eyes in amazement over everything makes my heart so happy! 

So, let's start the holidays by going to Disneyland. One of our favorite spots. We've had passes since Jake was one. However, it's a little challenging now with the three solo. I used to take the boys weekly... If not several times in a week. Now that Scarlett is getting a little older, I'm getting ready to make my return. WITH ALL THREE? HE HE. SOLO? I can do this! 

I'll keep ya posted with how it goes. The biggest challenge is that Scarlett wants to walk everywhere. She isn't interested in the stroller or carrier. Just her legs. And that's super fun when its really crowded. ha ha. But, I know I'll figure it out. I always do! It'll be the kids and my new adventure. Adventure in Disneyland! For reals.
Halloween carnival at Jake's elementary school. So fun! 
OC Great Park - Spooktacular Party!
Jake and his teacher. The elementary school has a Halloween parade. 

 Scarlett's First Halloween!
 Halloween party at a friends house. :)

Scarlett's WILD ONE Birthday Party!

Our littlest love turned one! This was time for a celebration! I had big parties for the boys, and wanted Scarlett to also have one.

I decided on a boho chic theme for the party (WILD ONE). I had a few decorations from an event at church I helped with (that was also a boho chic theme), so that worked out great!

My mom, little brother, my sis in law, and 2 nephews all flew into town for the occasion! Surrounded by our closest friends and family! What a special day.

The only bummer is that I was getting sick, and it was 90 degrees out! Southern California fall weather is brutal here. ha! I originally had everything outside, and then when the bounce house arrived it took the outdoor location. Kinda irritating, but moving everything inside wasn't so bad considering how hot it was outside. No one would have wanted melted dessert, right?

Here are some decorations my mom and I made. I also made most of the desserts. This was so much fun! Even though I have less time with 3 kids, 6 and under... I still made it work! And I think everyone had fun! I know my little family did!

Thank you for all that are in our lives. We love and appreciate you all!
Months 1-11 posted (will post 12 months this week also)

 These were so easy to make!
Cake topper - check! Flowers bought for cake and decor - check! I love simple! I love to spruce it up my way! I think it turned out great. Too bad she didn't want anything to do with it! ha!
 Birthday girl!
 Cake smash?
Until the next party! :)
