My sister comes to visit (Part 2 of 2)

So after the Phoenix Children's Museum, we came home and decided to have a little girls night out on the town...well not really we went to sushi and then ended our night at this little dive bar called Roman's.  It was so much fun and we danced, talked and did a lot of a laughing!

The next day was Baby Kam's 1st birthday party, we only had family come over, but it was a lot of fun and ended up being a ton of people, surprisingly, considering I planned it is 2 days....

Here are a couple of shots from the party!  Happy Birthday sweet boy!

My sister and nephew are finally here! (Part 1 of 2)

So I left Washington headed to Arizona in 2005 because I had become engaged to B.....

Long story short it has been 7 years since my move and my sister has NEVER BEEN TO AZ TO VISIT ME!!!!  Crazy right??

Well, the wait is over because she's here with my nephew and her really good friend.  It's been so much fun so far, while I was working they headed off to the mall and literally spent about 4 hours there much fun, I wish I had the energy to do that with 2 little ones.  They came home with cupcakes, cookies and a couple bottles of wine.  So we sat up and talked and laughed until I couldn't hold my eyelids up anymore.  (I wake up everyday at 6am with my Kings running into our room to state, "Mommy, I wake up!")  So I just can't hang like I used to. Ha!

Then we decided to do something for the kids so we headed off to the Phoenix Children's Museum for a little bit of fun. It was a great few hours spent playing, running, jumping and exploring all things for KIDS!

Lordy, Lordy my sweet Ping is 40!

I met the coolest girl about 5 years ago, my husband said we are going over to a friend Jason's house to meet their new little daughter and hang out.  I walked into a beautiful home and were welcomed by the nicest women.  She had just had a sweet little girl named Ryan and let me tell you it looked as though she had never given birth.  Her figure is amazing and I know now that her eating habits are impeccable, except when my hubby and her get together, they seem to always fall for anything sweet! I remember rocking Ry to sleep that and talking with Jason and Stacy late into the night.  Well that was five years ago and I still call this women a really, really great friend.  Stacy is not only one of the hardest working people I know, she is kind, giving, beautiful, a great workout partner ;0), a true friend.  "Ping" as I affectionately call her will also let you know what's on her mind and if she doesn't like something that you are doing she will IMMEDIATELY let you know.  That is why my husband always says that Ping is quick to give you a review, you might not like it, but you will respect it.  She is also my partner in crime when it comes to music, especially Sade.  She endured my crazy antics at the Sade concert and stood by my side the entire time.  Let us not forget and I think its your turn to wear the Sade shirt next week!! HEY!!

I watched her marry the love of her life in Montana....

We took a family vacation to Hawaii (amongst numerous other trips).....

 and I was around to see her pregnant with her 2nd daughter as she was with me when I was delivering Kings..

Besides being a fabulous wife, cook and business owner, she is also a fabulous Mommy to two beautiful little girls.  Those little princesses are so lucky to have you Ping!  Keep guiding them in the right direction because you are doing a wonderful job.

Lastly, thank you so much for ALWAYS being there for me and my family.  Can you believe it has been five years already since we first met??  You are a beautiful soul and deserve nothing but the best, HAPPY HAPPY Birthday don't look a day over 25.

We are forever THE POYARDS!

Love you!

Retail Therapy Session!

Such a fun day today!

Dropped off Kings at Montesorri....he just adores his school and he managed to bring home a lot of "work" which included a really cute caterpillar made out of egg cartons.

Kam and I headed out with my dear friend Patience and her son for a little retail therapy.  Picked up a pair of super cute jeans for cheap and some other random stuff.  No pics to show, but I just love getting away with my friends and catching up.  Even if it includes a baby (my sweet Kam) who did not nap and all he wanted to do was wobble, I mean walk around the stores.  He was a trooper.  Patience's son is amazing he sat in his stroller the entire time and chilled, she trained him early....LUCKY!  Since I don't plan on having another other kids I have to start working on mine stat!  Mama likes to shop, hello!

Now the boys are napping and Mama is doing a little work--people want some home loans...thank you Lord!  I hope you all have a fabulous weekend, spend it with the ones you love!

Rest In Peace Whitney Houston....

I literally grew up bouncing around and singing to this women's songs.  She was an amazing talent and everyone in the music industry strives to have the voice that she had.  Her infectious smile and positive attitude is what catapulted her career.  Her legend will never be forgotten and her music will continue to inspire.  We will miss you Whitney Houston and my thoughts and prayers are with your family and friends, especially your daughter.  Watch over us Whitney from above, you are now no longer in pain.

365 days just flew by.....Baby K you're 1.....

With tears in my eyes, I write this and I proudly say Happy Birthday my sweet baby boy!  You have become a true blessing to our family.  I cannot believe that a year ago I was starving myself while Daddy, Kings and the rest of The Edwards family chowed down at California Pizza Kitchen.  I, of course, had to fast because I was due for C-Section at approximately 5pm and could not eat.  Surprisingly, I had no appetite because I was very anxious and excited to meet you.

My surgery was so peaceful, I remember singing Michael Jackson's "I Wanna Rock With You" while Dr. Johnson prepped me for surgery and as I layed on that table with your Daddy beside me I could not believe that in a matter of minutes our family would go from three to four.  You came out screaming and all I heard the nurse say was "Look at those 2 dimples!"  That's why til this day your Daddy always says that "you aren't pimpin' you're dimpin!" Haha!

Born at a mere 6 pounds 6 ounces you were perfect and exactly the same size as your big brother.  Let me add that Kings was not at all excited to meet you and could not figure out why I was holding you.  He freaked out and I knew that this was not going to be easy for him, but as soon as I got home with you, he adjusted fairly quickly and my sweet 20 month old baby boy was now a big brother and literally grew up before my very eyes.

 I have to mention that during our stay, especially the first night together, we had the best nurse ever!  Mandy....thank you so much for helping me during those first few days with Baby K you were a true God send and I am happy that I still get to follow your journey on a little thing called Facebook.

Well from that first car ride home to your 1st shots (surprisingly Mama did not cry) to our first plane ride to Seattle for Auntie Ky's bridal shower to our first emergency room had croup and many, many other firsts, I am so happy to call you my son and this has been an exciting year.

So it's now your 1st Birthday and here we are looking back at the past 365 days and keep asking myself where did the time go?  I am so grateful for digital cameras and the internet because I have these beautiful keepsakes that I will now carry on with me forever. 

 I can't wait to see what the future lies ahead for you and with that I say thank you for choosing me to be your Mama!  I have fallen in love 3 times in my life and you my dear are my 3rd! I love you Scoops and as my dear friend says "To the Moon and Back!"

Loves.....Your Mama
