It's a Christmas miracle!!!!

Twice in, what, one week...WOW! I even amaze myself sometimes.

Our little Maya turned four yesterday and the festivities continued into today.

Here she is in her new princess dress that we had to unglue from her body because she wore it for so long.  Now our house is covered in a thin layer of glitter.

She requested a flower cake and this is what I came up with.  I definitely need some more practice in the make-a-cake-other-than-a-9x13 category.  It was fun and Maya was more interested in her gifts anyway so she moved right along.  She asked for a Happy Meal for dinner and to go to the Disney Store.  We did just that and I think she had a great time.  Her face lite up when she was able to pick something out that Mommy and Daddy couldn't say no to.  She had a ball!!

We love her so much even when she's having an off day, or we're having an off day.  She pushes me to my limits sometimes but at the end of the day she's one of the best decisions we've ever made.  Happy birthday sweet girl!!!

Real Quick...

Just wanted to give a quick update on what we've been up to.  Maya and Arthur made a gingerbread house which they both had so much fun doing.  Maya turns four this weekend and she's very excited.  It's fun for us to celebrate because she definitely gets what is going on.  She's a doll and she keeps us on our toes.

Kade got in the pool quite often over the summer and he LOVES the water.  I'm so glad because I was a water baby growing up...I think if I still could spend all day in the pool I would.  He is ginormous and everyday he gets closer to out weighing Maya.  He'll have it done by the time he's 18 months.

Arthur and I spent a weekend in San Francisco with some friends.  I love this city and I always have and probably always will.  We ate good food, walked around a lot, spent a morning on Alcatraz, and the company was awesome.

I'm progressing nicely with my pregnancy.  I've started to feel a little uncomfortable especially since I get heartburn as early as possible while being pregnant.  I'm 26 weeks and we're having a boy.  I'm looking forward to the holidays because I don't have to be terribly cautious about what I eat.  I'll still watch it, but not too closely.

Arthur is working as a manager at a proprietary uniform store for some private schools around the bay area.  It's great to have a job and we're looking forward to what the future holds for us.
