Baby Loves Disco Party at The O Lounge!!

Wow! We had such a great day yesterday. We took Cora clubbin' at The O Lounge! We were unsure of what to expect, ya know, a dance party at a dance club, for babies??? But it was so cool. They had the club totally rearranged to make it kid friendly and fun, but it was still The O Lounge and a good vibe for us parents. Valet parking service, disco balls, colored lights, DJ playing GOOD music that adults and kids can both enjoy (real music, no Barney or Wheels On the Bus stuff) a full bar for non-driving parents, pupus, fruits, juices, and other healthy snacks for kids, pimped out changing stations (one for boys, one for girls), cute stuffed animals on the lounge sofas and chairs, play mats and toys, bubble blowers on the dance floor, bean bags and mini tables and chairs, kid friendly coffee table books, I could go on. So fun, so chic, so hip, and so cool (so fresh and so clean clean.) Who says you can't still go clubbin' after becoming parents!?!  Who says you have to hang up your dancing shoes just because you have a baby at home?!

Shakin' her tail feather...

Surveying the scene...

Gabbin' with the girls...

Crowd surfing...

Cora had a blast. She is a dancing queen!! She shook her little booty all "night" long! That's all she wanted to do was dance, dance, dance, dance, dance. She couldn't care less about the toys or the food, she wanted to dance! In fact, her and her daddy won the Daddy and Keiki Dancing Contest. Aren't you so proud of them?? :) They brought home some great prizes! 

Baby LOVES Disco!!


Love Is...

This is our first family portrait owned by Island Style Images (Cora was almost seven months old.) She has changed so much in the short few months since this was taken and I am amazed every day at her growth and development.

 Babies are true and blessed miracles.

I treasure this picture.  It is priceless and beautiful, and epitomizes the love and joy we were all meant to have in this life.  I hope you like it.


Happy Birthday Grandma!!

Hello everyone!  It's my Grandma's birthday today!!  I am soooo happy...

My Mommy & Daddy took me to the park to celebrate (because I know if Grandma was here that is what she would want to do!)...  I slid down slides and swinged on swings. It was fun...

But I decided later that the neighborhood park wasn't enough; I needed to head to the beach to 'really' celebrate Grandma's birthday in style.  I grabbed my backpack with my bucket and shovels (Daddy grabbed my whale toy) and we were off!...

I swam in the waves, played in the sand, and made sand strawberries and acorns with my toys, just for Grandma!...

It was a really fun day, the only thing that would have made it better is if Grandma could have been here to celebrate with me!  I love you Grandma!!




Reversical Mullet :)

I cut all my hair off. It's kinda like a reverse mullet... party in front, business in the back. I'll take a picture when it's a finished product. I still need to get it colored for the full effect.  Other than that small detail though, there's not much going on. Just the usual packing to move, flooding our house, and getting our new car gashed up by some idiot who has no respect for other peoples' property. So yeah, same ol' same ol'.  :)  

We are good, Cora is good (talking A LOT) and Pumpkin is good.  Thanks for stopping in.... stay tuned!



Ohhh, what to say? What to say...
I turned 31. Really? Is that possible? Let's see... 
I was born 1977. Current year, 2008. 
2008 - 1977 = ???... let me bust out my handy-dandy calculator.... 
Crap, yeah, 31. 
It's ok though, it was a really good day. I got to sleep in. 
Mel got up with Cora. 
When I got up I had a beautiful baby girl running to me, breakfast made, and a birthday cake in the oven. Who can really complain about that? 
We went to lunch and ate one of my favorite desserts, Chili's White Chocolate Raspberry Lava Cake, yummmm. 
Mel bought me a BEAUTIFUL one-of-a-kind necklace from a local artisan that I just LOVE. Its so unique and so very cool. 
The rest of the day we just hanged out :) 
It was quiet and pleasant and just what I wanted.

Here's a few pictures of my day.... enjoy!
