Mommy WOW... I'm a BIG boy now!

Koa is almost 2 1/2 and is growing up WAY TOO FAST! Although he knows how to milk me and pretends to be my baby, he definately is NOT a baby anymore! He is 100% potty trained and I am SO proud of him. About 6 weeks ago he decided he didnt want diapers anymore and so he would go on the potty... the first 5 days were rough... he would have 3 or 4 accidents a day, but after a week NO MORE ACCIDENTS! Kaile potty trained really easily so I though Koa would be my tough one... I was wrong! He is such a good boy and I love him so much!!

I had to throw in a picture of Kaile! She is almost 4! She is so cute, SASSY, and very sweet. I love her to pieces!
(Side note... I accidently buzzed his head! OoOPPs! No more late night hair cuts outside, in the DARK. Hes still a doll though!)

The past 2 years have been quite the experience for our little family! I was very hesitant to move into Glenns parents home while they moved to Hawaii for 2 years. I worried about what "people would think"... I worried about losing our privacy... honestly, I cried when we left our little home! We have definately had our ups and downs but it has been such a blessing for our family! Glenn was able to finish his bachelors degree, took up to 21 units at a time, works more than full time and always makes time for myself and his kids! He does it all with a smile on his face and he has never once complained about being overwhelmed! I admire him for being so motivated by us! He wants to give us the best and HE HAS! I feel so blessed that he has had such a great job in this unstable economy! We have been able to pay for all of his schooling and have no debt! We have also been able to save money for a down payment on a house and Glenn is even starting his masters program! I am glad that we were able to feel "helpful" here by taking care of his parents home and rental units. We are so looking forward to his parents return in less than 6 weeks! Packing and moving will keep us busy and hopefully the time will fly, we have missed them so much!

Stay tuned for more blog posts! I'm BACK!

Friday May 21, 2010 was one of the BEST days EVER! Glenn graduated and I am SO happy to have my man back! The last few semesters were crazy with Glenn taking 18-21 units and working full times (and overtime)! It was definately rough for a couple of years having 2 little ones and a husband with a packed schedule but Glenn always managed to find time to spend with us! I will forever be amazed at how hard Glenn works and he NEVER EVER complains about it! Somedays he'd only get a couple hours of sleep and he still managed to put on a happy face! I LOVE him so much for that!

Me with my GRADUATE!

Congratulations babe!

Froggy Party!

Koa and 2 of his cousins, Matthew and Jaxson, all turned 2 within a few weeks of each other so we celebrated with a "TOADally Awesome" frog party at Froggs Bounce House and it was SO MUCH FUN!

Koa on his birthday... I need to find a picture of all 3 of the Birthday boys!
The banner and gift table...

The chocolate frog sucker centerpieces and froggy confetti (I went a little psycho with the details!)

The Frog Cake that my cousin Heather and I stayed up until 3am making! It was SO worth it though!

We are in paradise...

Getting SUPER excited over PINK pineapple (so excited that we forget how to open our eyes... bless her cute heart!)

playing in grandma and grandpas backyard... (this is really their backyard!)
playing old hawaiian games...
being transformed into sand mermaids...
Making new friends...
building princess sand castles...
watching the waves...
chasing away unwanted friends...
learning new tricks...
eating fresh pineapple...
bailing ourselves out of jail...

and we are enjoying EVERY SECOND of it!

I don't want to come home!
