Punkin Pickin

This is my view of Lela, cause we are inseperably connected!... I promise I didn't put a rubber band around her wrist!

My lovely husband carefully selecting pumpkins with unique stems!

Lela's pick

We actually managed to get a family picture...I'm so proud!

Bella's pick

Our friends, Brett and Niki Herbst, invited us over for some pumpkin picking and some waffles tonight. We had such a good time! Bella has so much fun out there at the farm its hard to keep track of her, she just runs all over the place! but I did get a few shots of her in the pumpkin patch.

Just a note

Today Baby luna crawled for her first time! the last few days I would put her on the floor but she would just scoot backwards, but today she took 3 crawl steps for me Ben and Bella.
Bella said the funniest thing yesterday and I meant to get a picture but I don't have a very good camera, but she came in pointing at her big toe and said in a very sad voice...oh no... I have a freckle on my toe...It's ruined!!, I'm going to have to get a new one!!

Today is my Bella's birthday and she is three! sometimes it seems like she has been around for ever and other times is seems like just yesterday she was born. she has definitely changed my life in so many ways! she is a little smartie pants, all girl, and very sweet when she wants to be! we love you Bella!! My good and very talented friend Leah took these pictures at the party, she got some great shots of all the happenings!

These pictures crack me up! I thought you might enjoy the rolls too! Olea loves the bath, she splashes until the floor in my bathroom is all wet. The other picture is of Ben holding her on his lap and squeezing her cheeks with her feet. Oh my chubby baby!

Artist in the works

After Dance class Bella was still on a high and needed something to keep her busy, what better than a little finger painting? That did the trick!

Thursday, September 20, 2007


Today was Bella's first day of dance class. She was so excited as I was helping her put on her dance clothes she couldn't stop giggling! She did so well at class. There was one time she got so caught up in looking at her shoes and how they work on the floor, she didn't hear the teacher repeating her name over and over, and I thought oh great its already starting...we have an artist on our hands!

Gabby came over to play with Bella the other day and when I came in to check on them they had tutu's on and were dancing around to music, it was so cute. I still cant believe they are a year and 2 months apart!

Family night hike

Tonight was our family night. Ben doesn't think it should be on Monday because sunday was an all day family day and I guess you cant have two family nights in a row, so its wednesday for us. We went up the canyon by Vivian and took a little hike. All I kept thinking was please dont let us see a bear or any other large animal, cause I am not up for running with this big ol baby strapped to me! but we didn't, and we had a great time!! we even saw some changing leaves!!

The backyardigans

Just an everyday event in the backyard. Ben built some swings and a slide for the kiddos, boy has it come in handy at times!!

luna lela and jacky chan

Rachel, Jack and grams came down to visit. I kept the babies while they ran over to the studio to check out Bens new painting. Lela and Jack were playing so cute together I had to take a couple of pics. Can you believe they are first cousins??

strike a pose!

gabbers and bella decided they needed to run through the sprinklers. when I brought the camera out they were all about striking poses! Bella is in her super hero outfit that her Aunt andrea bought for her. Its really supposed to be a swim suit, but when she came out wearing it Ben made up a whole skit for her and called her citrus girl!!
