Our good friend Kim did our pictures for us. She did such a great job and picked such an awesome location. Thanks Kim we really appreciate you taking time out of your day for us! P.S. I love all the color editing you did.
This is what I will always remember about my kids being young. They are so cute and carefree and I think I can learn a lot from them. So if ya need a smile today, I know I can guarantee one after watching this!
(Kaili's 4th Birthday, look how sweet. Ku'uipo & Kaili) Oh how fast you've grown! So we celebrated Kaili's birthday a bit late due to our trip to Florida. She chose to have a bead party with some friends from school after we got home. They had fun making and designing their own jewelry, eating cupcakes, and lots of giggling. It's hard to believe she is 8. I can still remember taking her home from the hospital, hearing her repeatedly saying "uh-oh", jumping off everything, and getting black eyes. She is such a good girl and we are so lucky to have her here in our lives. Happy birthday sweetheart, I love you!!
So I promised lots of pics from our fab trip. There are a lot but they're worth the time. Just a quick list of what we did and why we were not bored once. 1. Check in and get the kids their last surprise, a convertible. (too bad it was freezing cold) 2. Meet my cousin Mike and his wife Amie at their house for talkin and yummy dinner. Thanks guys, it was so great catching up and too see your pretty house. 3.Meet up with some of our good friends and old next door neighbors, Jen, Ryan, and kiddies. We went to lunch and St. Augustine Beach. It was a blast, the kids were so excited to see each other. Thanks for showing us around. We love you guys! 4. Spent our first day at Disney World. 5. Headed to Key Largo to stay the night in the Hilton right on the beach. So beautiful, but freezin cold. 6. Went to the alligator farm. Jason was forced to overcome his fear of snakes thanks to his brothers volunteering him at the snake show.(paybacks gonna get ya)Rode the air boats and watched a man get the crap whacked out of him by an alligator. 7. Back to Disney World for Halloween Party with Mickey. (worth the extra money) 8. Attempted Daytona Beach. It was chilly. 9. Fly back home where I was really looking forward to relaxing and celebrating Kaili's 8th birthday! It was nice to get away and it was great to have Jason all to ourselves, but really there's no place like home.
We had a great time, but it's really great to be home. While we were out there hitting record lows since 1953, I heard of the weather here was 60-70. Nice!!
Jason and I have been together for 13 years and married for 9. Yep, high school sweethearts. We have two BEAutiful little girls who couldn’t be more opposite. Kaili just turned 9 and is our free spirited dare devil with a big heart. Sasha is 6 and is our girly girl that is sweet and sensitive. I am a stay at home mom for my little cuties. I am also a Realtor for family and friends (very minimal). I also own my own custom made jewelry business, I figured why not make a hobby a business. But, being at home with the girls is my priority. It may be a challenge some days but I wouldn't change it. Jason really enjoys his job as a cop on SWAT and Motors. He is so feakin' ambitious. He can do anything he puts his mind to. He has accomplished so much in such a short time. His schedule is demanding but we always make it work. I am so thankful to have a happy healthy family! Life is always full of new adventures and I'm so lucky to go through them with my amazing family.
Jason loves to ride his motorcycle. He has so many hobbies and not enough time to do them all. Here is a list of a few..... Playing Guitar hero with girlies, Triathlons, scuba diving, rock climbing, fishing, bow hunting, paint balling, hiking, poker, SWAT stuff, and so on.... He is always so positive and never lets anything get him down. The girlies can't wait for him to get home because he's the fun one!
My Kaili Girl
Kaili loves school and loves to do any physical activities. She rocks at Guitar Hero and always beats her competition. She is not afraid to try anything. She recently thought she was Evil Kenevil and crashed her power scooter. She spent two days in the hospital after she had broke her arm. After having surgery and three pins in her arm she still is not afraid. She is always happy and thinking of others. She is a joy to have around and can make anyones day better!
Our Sasha Bear
Sasha loves to be with mom. She has really come out of her shell a lot over the last year. She loves to play dress up and sleep with all her favorite dolls and animals. She loves to make all kind of faces in the mirror when she thinks nobody is watching. When she dresses herself it is always her zebra skirt, her flashy pink shirt and moms red high heels. She also totally rocks at Guitar Hero. Life wouldn't be the same without her sweetness!
" Cupcake "
Cupcake is our little Chihuahua. She weighs about 2.5 lbs. She can be super sweet but has a side of her that is a total diva. The girls love playing with her, dressing her up, and putting her in their doll strollers for walks. She can defintiely make anyone smile and we love her so much, regardless of her sometimes naughty attitude.
