Here a pox, there a pox, everywhere a pox pox - Poor lil Peyton's got a pox

Here an itch, there an itch, everywhere an itch itch - Poor lil Peyton's got an itch

Pox on my back, on my neck, in my hair

pox on my front, on my ears, on my eyelids

...and I'm still smiling

got smiles? got kisses?

there is a chicken pox epidemic in our home, but we still got smiles

say cheese. "Rice"

I'm coming for you

Big warm kisses from the Chicken Pox queen

Give me some love



Can't bring me down
Pebbles eat your heart out

missing a santa picture

Thursday at yoga Peyton kept standing for long periods of time, she'd go forward onto her toes and then back onto her hears - rocking - sometimes she's lose her balance and catch herself. it was so cute. The girls were excited to be back at yoga. They missed all their friends, and especially Julie. Sydney went and introduced herself to the new babies - Prince was the one she decided to hang out with. Peyton and Sydney both played nice with Amelia, although Sydney kept trying to pull Amelia or use her as a ladder. Bianca enjoyed Yoga too... well she rode the bike for awhile, chased the babies some and visited with Julia - a must. I was thrilled to be back at Yoga... I miss it. I'm looking forward to going every thursday that I can.

Last night Sydney took three steps, she's on her way to walking. She was standing up then started to walk towards grandma, who wasn't very far away. Left, Right, Left- Catch me....


This morning we planned on going to visit Santa and get the classic 1st picture with Santa for Sydney and Peyton and probably the 11th for Bianca - but Peyton had a couple bumps on her face, I checked her neck... more there, I took off her onsie, she had a huge chicken pox on her chest and one on her back, plus lots of little ones.... It's late in the day and she's pretty much covered now. She had the most on her head, hiding in her beautiful hair. Her hair is now brown and pink....

Sydney might have one.... nothing else yet. We'll be waiting. Needless to say it's gonna be a pictureless Christmas for us. Sydney is playing nice with her sister and not giving her to hard a time. There's been no hair pulling going on.

On the good side.... Peyton is her cheerful self. Nothing gets the girl down - HOORAY!!!

Looks like I won't be back to Yoga for awhile.... pouts

Who says Peyton's sick?

Daycare Christmas Party

It had been six years since we've been to the Sharon and Dick Christmas Party. Bianca was four the last time we went. A new tradition is born - Sydney and Peyton's turn for daycare. It's wonderful for the girls because they've got their two cousins looking out for them. Dominic is always there to greet them in the morning and it doesn't take long for Donovan to join in the fun. The party was a blast, the kids caroled, we ate good food and enjoyed.

Welcome to Bianca's Room - it's like a Where's Waldo's Adventure

Always time to play

Another one bites the dust

Passed out again

Knocks me out cold every time

Our First Annual Run to Feed the Hungry

;et's make this an annual Event - Something exciting to do with the family. Aunt Andria had a great idea, a lil annual fun in the sun (hopefully the weather is always this great) run. Maybe we can add a few to our crew next year.

Thanksgiving Morning Run - Things didn't happen the way we planned... Peyton woke up with pink eye so Daddy stayed home with his lil Rocky Balboa. He got Turkey Duty on top of Baby Duty. What a lucky guy.

Mommie, Bianca and Sydney hit Starbucks and then met up with Aunt Andria, Dominic and Donovan. Uncle Steven, Joan and Andrew all flaked on us - okay she left her phone in the car, so we weren't able to meet up with them.... She was looking for us, but it's kinda hard to find a needle in the haystack (Joan's words) ~lol~ Uncle Steven ran the 5K, we just missed him, he started a lil before we did, but he wasn't happy with the road condition, it was like the LA TRAFFIC. Next Year Daddy's gonna challenge him!

We all proudly sported the Run to Feed the Hungry Gear -

We happily followed the crowd down J Street, where we got T-shirts & giftcards from the Opa Opa man, took slow walkers out with the front wheel of our strollers, we were serenaded by a guy on a bike - pullin his bumpin system behind him (8 speakers long), & got to dance with Mr Blue Suede Shoes in the flesh. "where was the camera then?"

The After Party Bomb - Looks like the kids were tired.

Next year the plan is the jog the 5K with the kids, although Bianca wants to run the 10K... so maybe she can run with daddy and uncle steven.


Peyton went 12 rounds Wednesday Night and she was still smiling.
