Half Moon Babe

Despite being busier than ever with work, John and I are still committed to taking advantage of this year as northern California residents. 

This weekend's adventure: Half Moon Bay! 

Soooo beautiful!! 

And, our quick trip couldn't have been more relaxing. 
It was a nice, easy drive, followed by a day playing at the beach, casual walks along the ocean, some crafting and shopping downtown, and sushi for dinner. 

Nothing better than our time together!

So Sporty!

Audrey's been so sporty lately!!
Of course, she's my sweet volleyballer. 

We play in the backyard all the time! She loves to practice passing.

But, we were very excited to teach her how to ride a bike this weekend!!!!!
She's getting so big and facing her fears!

Check her out:

Two Teeth, One Week!

On the night before Valentine's Day, we got a special gift...

Or should I say, we lost a special gift? 

Audrey lost her first tooth!!! 

Our good friends from Irvine were in town for a visit! It was such a great night!!
Audrey was SO SCARED to lose her tooth (many tears were involved). But, she did it and she was so proud of herself!!

And, in case you were wondering, the tooth fairy left a very rare, $2 bill under her pillow that night. 


But, the tooth fairy fun wasn't over!! 
Just three days later, I picked up Audrey from school and she said she had a surprise for me...

It was a second baby tooth, gone forever!!! 

We are all loving Audrey's new, toothless grin!!
Keep smiling, pretty girl!

Audrey's Baptism

Audrey really wanted to get "bath-tized". I think that's my favorite part, that Audrey made the decision for herself. Of course, we didn't push it at home. But, she learns about God in school and the last few months she's been asking and asking for a real Bath-tism.

And, I can't really think of a better day for a Baptism than New Year's Day! Talk about a new beginning!! Audrey was honored to have Uncle Mato and Aunt Amy stand with her as her Godparents. It was a simple, private ceremony at Our Lady of the Snows. And, it was absolutely beautiful...just like her!

Congratulations, Audrey!! Pray for us all!!! We love you!
