Aiden turns 3 and much… much more!

I haven’t posted in almost a year and a friend of mine inadvertently reminded me how much I love blogging and how I should definitely start up again :)

Since my last post from June 2009:

1) Tom lost his job at NVIDIA and we had to move back in with his parents

2) Aiden turned 3 YEARS OLD!!!

3) Tom got a new job working for Intermedia.net

 

I am sure there is much, much more but these are the basics :)

This past year has been pretty stressful but thankfully Tom found a great company with amazing opportunities… Thank God that now we have medical benefits so if Aiden gets sick or hurt we can take him to the doctor with no worries.

Cute card I made

Inspired by:  THE PINK STAMPER

I made this card for my mother in law who loves Moose.

All the paper is from Papertreyink.com. I didn't have an "olive green" so I had to improvise :D

A long awaited update

Our lives have been so busy and crazy lately I just haven't had enough time.
But here I am :D

It has been about 4 months since my last post and since then Aiden has turned 2 and I have turned 25!

Click on the photo of Aiden for more Birthday Pics


Click on the photo of me below for my Birthday pics


This Summer Tom and I are going on a cruise. It leaves June 21, 2009 and returns June 28, 2009. Then shortly after that, on July 6, 2009, I leave for another cruise with Amber! My summer is going to be filled with cruising and relaxing before I start my stressful schooling in September. I am finally done with CC and am majoring in Math at Cal State East Bay. Then hopefully I will get my Masters in Genetics :D

Over the past couple months I have been really looking into a path through Genetics. I really think this could be my calling in life.

I'll post again after our cruise... Unless something else comes up :D

Interesting Weekend!

Saturday..... Feb 7th, 2009

So this weekend was probably one of the funnest I have had in a REALLY long time! 
My old roommate always knows how to party and she definitely "out-did" any birthday party I have ever been to! She rented a LIMO BUS! Equipped with a Tiki Bar, Strippers Pole and unlimited alcohol! The best part is that she had like 25 people so it was only $40 per person!

The bus picked us up at her condo in San Jose and took us to two bars in Sunnyvale. But to be honest, I could have lived without the bars.... the bus was FUN!





Here is the ouside of the bus... Looks like a normal everday bus...










Then here's the inside!!!! The side walls are lined with Leather seats the roof is shiny metal with cool multi-colored lights on it, Plus there was like 10 speakers in the bus so the music was so loud and awesome!








You definitely need to have the personality (and the friends with "the personality") to do this... I walked on that bus knowing only Melissa and Allegra and walked off that bus with 20 new friends! They were all so nice and friendly! I had such a blast (and a well deserved one at that!)

I took Aiden to his friends birthday party. Ethan turned 2 a few days ago and Aiden will be two in 10 days! I have been looking for a preschool for Aiden and have a couple interviews tomorrow. I am hoping to do a part time pre-school program where he can either go M-F for a couple hours or MWF for all day. I sort of like the all day idea better cause then I have some days to myself :D 

Aiden liked the Pirate hat and eye patch :D he put them on and kept saying ARRRGH!



While Will was helping me clear out or storage Aiden and Lliam apparently had other plans that did not involve sticking around to help out! I don't know if they had plans to go pick up on some chicks or what but they were on a mission!






I think this blog is long enough.... its 12:30 and should probably get to bed now. I have some pre-school touring to do tomorrow and class from 6:30-9:45 pm Should be an interesting day to say the least :D 

Until next time................

Since Mid-January.... It is now Feb 4th... (picture heavy)

I haven't blogged in a looooong time and I feel bad.
So many things have happened that I have wanted to blog about but just either haven't had the time.... or haven't had the energy. There are countless nights where I got everything set up and ready to update my blog and decided to do it at a later time cause I was simply too exhausted. Keeping up with a 2 year old is one of the hardest things I have ever had to do in my life!

Since my last blog we went to Ophelia's 4th birthday bash:
Her birthday was at a cool (huge) park with a lake.

Aiden got his very first kite!





I can not believe Aiden is already going to be 2!!! That post is going to be probably really long with a ton of pictures!

Our Weekend and Monday

Weekend and Monday (Jan 10-12)

So this weekend was totally fun! Saturday Tom had to work but after he came home we went on a short walk with Aiden riding his bike. THEN, Saturday night the Pitt's babysat Aiden while Tom and I went "on a date". We were so confused as to what to do with all the quiet time that we ended up going to Barnes and Noble! HA!

Sunday I got my hair done....
(click the pic for more)


Then hung out with Kate and saw her new puppy! SO CUTE!


And finally Monday (today) I took Aiden to the California Kids Sport Center! SOOOO FUN for the kids AND parents!

I have uploaded a couple videos and ALL our pictures.

Click on the picture below to view all our pics:


And here are our videos from today:

Until next time......

Loving the "Blog Scene"

I am totally loving the whole "BLOG YOUR FAMILY" deal! This ROCKS!

So last night we had our Freeloafers over
and they invited a friend (Anthony)
It was pretty fun. We played some Partini, Taboo, Guitar hero and ended the night with Beer Pong.

The party ended around 3:30 am even though I went to bed at like midnight! haha....
Then Aiden and I barged in at like 9 AM and decided to wake them up!
This is how we found them:


OH WAIT..... THAT'S THE WRONG PHOTO!!! (how did that get in there????)

Here is the correct one....


We had a lot of fun :D

Then tonight was fun also (Jan 10, 2009) because the Pitt's so graciously accepted Aiden into their home for a "FEW HOURS" that actually turned into like only one hour cause Tom and I literally didn't know what to do with all the freedom we had. You know what we did? WE WENT TO BARNES AND NOBLE..... now, you tell me.... is that what NORMAL people do when they have a few hours away from their children?.... HA! I didn't think so.

I'm old. Goodnight
