Almost Time

So many mixed emotions going on inside of me.
(I love summer)

This one will start school soon and I am a little......not really sure what word to use.
It has been her and I at home for the past 2 years.
She is my baby.
And loosing 4 pregnancy's, I wasn't ready to
stop growing my family. I expected more first days of school to come.

Am I excited, absolutely. She will be the finest student.
And I will be the proudest Mama.
She can concentrate.
She is not afraid to stand up
for what she believes in.
She is strong willed.
I am excited to watch her and see who she has become.
See all my hard work up until this point.

But will I miss her, ABSOLUTELY.
Makes me tear up just writing that.
I am so proud of her.
And yes, I will miss her.
I am not nervous for her, I am not sad that she is starting school.
I will just miss her.

Saying goodbye to Rocket

Its going to be a great day/week.
Its our last week of summer and I am determined to have some fun!!!
Today, swim party with awesome friends.
Tomorrow, movie night, outside, pajamas and all.
It's going to be great!

Saying our goodbye's to Rocket.
Isabella, that sweet little girl, she will miss her kitty.
But it was a good morning. Sad, but good.
Her heart is so warm, I am so proud to be her Mama.
That's what my kids call me, Mama. Not sure why, but when
I hear them say it, I love it!
Here are some pic's of last night and this morning.

Celebration Party, balloons and all.

A note to Rocket in Heaven

She will always remember him
Her best buddy.

Rocket, our Cool Cat

Isabella's prayer last night
and convo with me
about our cat.
He will be going to Heaven tomorrow because of cancer.

Isabella: Dear Father, thank you for Rocket, we will miss him.
Thank you for my blessings.
Mom, I almost cried when I said that.
I am going to cry right now.
I am going to miss him so much.
And that little sweet girl cried and cried.
I felt her sadness over her entire body.
He's my best friend, he's my buddy.
He waits for me outside my room every morning.
I love him so much.
I just want to give him my heart.

As she was crying, she asked me,
Mom, will I see him in heaven?
How will he know when I am there?
He just will.
Do you think if I snap or whistle he will come to me?
I am going to miss him so much.

She woke up this morning and wanted to have a cupcake party
balloons and all to celebrate his life.
So thats what we did.
Right before bed
she looked at me with a sparkle in her eye and said
Can I write a note to him
tie it to the balloon
that way when
he gets to heaven he'll get my note.

Absolutely, I think that sounds great!

Rocket, one of the coolest cats on earth.
He is warm, loving and kind.
And has a special connection with Isabella.
We will miss him.

He laid with both kids last night.
First with Isabella
then over to Sophia.
It was like he knew.
It was great.
(sorry for his eyes in the last photo, it was just the flash)

There's No Place Like Home

As much as I love packing up and heading out,
I love it just the same when we pull up and open the front door.
We took a little mini vaca, it was nice.
Kids had a blast.
Gma and Gpa came with us.
Swam during the day.
Took some site seeing drives.
Checked out the beach.
Swam again.
Stayed up late playing cards.
Good memories made for sure.
Thanks Gma and Gpa for always making our trip special.
We love you.

Isn't this lovely.
It was so inviting.

Oh how I would love to walk out to this every morning.
It was beautiful.
With 2 bench swings and a bench.
And covered in bogenvia, one of my most favorite flowers.
I love the way they cover, their blooms and their coloring.
So delightful to look at.

Isabella & Gma, I love you Mom.

My family. I love them so much.

Prayer request. In the last 2 weeks I have had 3 people in my life pass away. One being a young man at 18. Heart breaking for my friend, it was her grandson. Another only made it a week after being diagnosed. So sad, my heart goes out to her children, her husband and her family.
If you could just pray for the families that have lost love ones. I know that they will miss them so much.
Thank you.

It was so FuN!!!!

One of my favorites.

Looking back, one thing I wish I had more of,
are pictures of me and my belly.
It is a moment of life that seems to come and go so quickly.
And often we forget what we looked like.
We can remember feelings, sickness, the birth down to the very last second, but remembering what we looked like with that belly popped out is sometimes hard.
That memory fades a little.
At least it did for me.
I also know that my kids love to see the pictures of me pregnant with them,
even if there are only a few.

So, with that being said, I knew immediately, when I saw my friends sister who
was pregnant, that I wanted her to try and capture that moment for her.
I am no professional photographer, I just love taking pictures.
And thought it would be fun.
Today I got the pleasure of taking those pictures and let me tell you

This is my favorite shot.

Thanks Katie. It was so much fun for me :O)

What a wonderful WeEkENd

MeMoRiEs were CrEaTeD to LaSt a LiFeTiMe

like a dog with its bone. thats how isabella was with this cotton candy.
i think it was more fun watching her then the game.

Padres game. We were treated wonderful. In the second inning, the girls
received a bag full of goodies, 2 of everything.

Then off to

****Sea World***

"Ruby" the Beluga Whale
Wonderful. Beautiful. Amazing.
The girls got to feed her. Pet her and give her commands.

We got to feed "Toby" the walrus. It was great.
Sophia chose not to get anywhere near Toby.

But the rest of us sure did. It was GREAT.

i love this picture.

We also were able to see a Polar Bear close up.
Its hard to see in the pictures but this guy was 11 feet tall.
His feet were a big as a dinner plate. It was unreal.

Thanks Nick.
Our family enjoyed every minute of it!

What a wonderful, fun filled weekend.
