Our good friends Tricia, Owen, and Greta came over today. We always have such a nice time with them. Ella is so funny because she is usually so quiet. It takes her awhile to warm up when we go somewhere or talk to someone. But when her friend Owen comes over...usual ol' Ella is out the window. She loves playing with him, she gets loud, runs all over the house, and will even occasionally tackle and wrestle her friend. I know...she surprises me too!
Ben plays well with Greta and the two babies follow their other older siblings all over the house. Today's amazing toy: the purifier. Ben and Greta turned that thing on and off at least a half a million times. Who needs trucks and dolls? Any old purifier will do.

The garden is all planted, the patio flowers have all been watered and arranged, the pool is crystal clear and vacuumed, and the kids are all sweetly tucked into bed. I feel like super-mom...hmmm..no, I'm too tired to feel that way. Maybe a good night's sleep for me and I'll feel like I can conquer the world tomorrow.
Check back soon as I will post some pics. Since both kids are sleeping, I MUST go to bed myself. NOW.

I officially get my garden up and running today.
Yes...I said garden.
Yes...I know it has dirt in it.
Yes...I know the dirt will inevitably get under my fingernails.
Yes...I know that I will have to actually eat the veggies that grow there.
Yes...I know that there will be spiders and other creepy things crawling around.
I know, I know, I know.
And with all of those things...I'm still excited to start growing my own things and feeding my family healthy, organic items. YES...I know I said "organic". Don't get me started on that one.
The greenhouse truck should be here soon with all of my fresh, black, beautiful dirt. Mom comes down next week and she is bringing with her all the plants that she so lovingly started months ago in her greenhouse. It will be nice to spend some time with her in my garden planting all those little plants that have so much potential. Ella is going to have so much fun this summer helping in the garden...and enjoying the fruits of our labor.
Did I mention that my compost bin comes in next week...

little soap drops all over his head. The kids will love when the weather turns warm and we can take them to the park for bubble time. Tomorrow is supposed to be 79 degrees so we may just get our chance real soon.

It was my birthday today! I am officially one and I'm pretty sure I'm the coolest kid on the block. Mom invited some of my friends over and we had a birthday picnic lunch at the park. It was so much fun and I even got to eat as much macaroni and cheese and I wanted...and trust me, that's a lot.
I had my birthday party this past weekend. Wow, was it a blast! All my friends came to the MG Maze and played with me. We had so much fun. My sister Ella even climbed all the way to the top with Daddy and came shooting out the big slide. I had my fair share of trying to eat the balls out of the ball pit...good thing they make those things so big!
We feasted on all sorts of good food with everyone. Mommy made bbq's which were just okay...what I really liked was the bulgogi and rice! Yum...that stuff is out of this world. I just can't seem to get enough of it. When I was all done eating, I flung the rice as far as I could across the table. Now that I'm one...it's quite a ways! When everyone was done raving about the bulgogi, Nana got the birthday cake out that she made for me. Didn't she do an awesome job? I think the Hangul is really cool. Mommy gave me my very own piece...she was wondering if I was going to like it. Wowza...cake is good. I squished it between my fingers until it was mashed just perfectly and then I chowed down. I tried to get every last crumb I could get my hands on. I can't wait until my next birthday party.
I got so many nice gifts and spending time with all my friends and family was wonderful. I slept like a champ that night from all the excitement. Now that I'm one today, I decided to give my mom a run for her money and make her walk me for 20 minutes before settling down and going to sleep. I figured I should make my birthday last all day long!
Thanks for those of you who came to my party...I love you all.
