Thanksgiving 2012

Larry and Marcine flew into town to be with us this Thanksgiving. They made breakfast and dinner on Thanksgiving, and come to think of it... Larry and Marcine made us breakfast everyday they were here. I rarely eat everything on my plate... and I manage to not only eat all my breakfast, but I went looking for more after! It was so nice having them in town. The kids really enjoyed snuggling, and hanging out with their grandparents. 

It was so nice having them in town to be with us, and spend time as a family. I already miss them very much! I hope they come back soon! ;)

This pretty much sums up their visit. A kiddo in each hand! :)
Grant's cousin Amanda came on Thanksgiving as well! I seriously love her to pieces! I'm so lucky to have developed a friendship with her. She is not only beautiful on the outside, she's even more beautiful on the inside!
The kids played outside on their swing set. The weather was so beautiful! 
And then the next day we all went to Disneyland! We went from 8-2pm. The kids did great! We had so much fun! Glad we got to go as an entire family. 
The last day of Larry and Marcine's trip we went to breakfast in Seal Beach. Then we walked around. Grant was wearing the Ergo with Asher, and stopped to talk with his dad. I snapped this pic. What a great moment. Father, son, and grandson. :)
Thank you so much Larry and Marcine for spending Thanksgiving in California. Thank you for the yummy food, and great company! I hope Grant and I showed you a good time, and you both come back very soon! The kids already miss Ciney and Pops! 

Hope everyone had a great Thanksgiving holiday! Tomorrow I'll post Asher's 9 month pics!

My life with 2 boys... 2 and under...

I wouldn't have this life any other way. As crazy as it can be at times... having these little monkeys this close in age is a blessing. Asher wants to do everything Jake is doing. He wants everything he has, drinks from his cup, wants his snack, and so on... Jake is patient. With an occasional... No! Or a bump to move him over. Which I'm constantly on the look out for. Jake likes to play with him, until Asher takes his stuff out of his hands. It takes everything in me NOT to laugh. They love each other already. Different in personalities. I love them both more than life. UGH! I'm lucky enough to squeeze them all day! :)

Here are some cell pictures over the last 2 weeks. 
In our backyard... Asher and Jake love swinging side by side! 
 They just laugh the entire time.
Disneyland with Jake's main lady... Not Minnie... but, Victoria. His best friend since they were 3 months old!
 At the Wilderness Park at CA Adventure.
 Jake taking Victoria's hand through the line...
 And then taking her hand back to the car...
 My Tahoe is officially full of boys!
 Handsome men dinning with me.
 BABY FEET! Cutest shoes ever!
 Jake playing at the park!
Grant's twin...
But, my baby!
Asher pushing Jake over to see what he has!
Silly boy!
 Jake with Homecoming Court Nominee, Amelia. Also, his babysitter. He adores her! Could you blame him? She is also beautiful Tri Delta as well! I love my DDD girls!
Jake LOVES to wear his shades. I'm going to be in trouble...
The entire family at a CSULB basketball game! I tired to get us all in the pic... close enough! ;)
Can't forget a girls night dinner! Love these girls. Missing a few besties... friends for 14 years!
Taking time to relax and read a good book!
Reading to his little brother. Not 100% sure all that he was saying... but, Asher sure enjoyed it!
This little guy will be walking soon!
My boys have been sick the last few days... Snotty noses, fevers, coughs, and both teething (Jake - 2 year old molars, and Asher - his bottom teeth)... But, they still enjoy playing with each other. Jake had Asher's pacifier (and BTW Asher hasn't used a pacifier for at least 2 months now), and Jake giving Asher something to chew on. Adorable, right? UGH. I can't take it.
Another picture from the week (which I adore), is this picture of my 3 boys... It was 6am, everyone was up... I snapped the picture of Grant kissing Asher in his arms, and all sitting there in peace and quite. I was making coffee, and turned around to see this.
I love my iPhone. I love the fact, that I don't miss the precious moments. Here are just a few over the last 2 weeks. I hope everyone has a great Friday, and a wonderful weekend!

Halloween 2012

Halloween 2012, party of 4... Check! Last year I was pregnant with Asher, this year... we have another Stone boy. :)

Having two boys is so much fun. I knew I wanted to do something fun, and a little similar. I didn't want to make a big deal out of what they wore. They're boys... and Jake would rather be naked then wear something that was heavy or bulky anyhow. Jake was thrilled to put that uniform on. He kept saying, "wow... wow, mama!" Too cute. Asher is a big boy. He's pushing a 24 month onesie, and he mainly wears 2T shirts. I don't like putting kids in too tight of clothes. Anyhow, I was looking through Pinterest (the greatest, yes?) and saw the cutest pairing... a football player, and a football! 

I was originally going to do a basketball player and a basketball, but it was so much harder to find, and I know I didn't have time to make the costumes. Jake's was easy to find... and Asher's is all from Etsy and Gap. 

So, with that... I have my little football family! 
My football.
 My football player.
 Things got better when they sat how they wanted to. HA!
 Then Eloise came over. Pretty little ballerina! She's 12 weeks old. :)
 Pretty girl!
 Photo ham...
 Handsome boys...
 Jake had fun trick AND treating. He ended up eating WAY more candy then I would have liked... but, it was Halloween after all! Once he finally went to bed (almost at 9pm), I hid the candy. I plan on donating it to the troops! Anyhoo.... hope everyone had a great Halloween! xo
