Happy Birthday Momma Mia!

This is my Momma Mia... isn't she beautiful? Everyone says I look just like her, and to me that is a huge compliment. This beauty just turned the big 50 on Wednesday... can you believe that? She doesn't look a day over 30. I love my Momma Mia more then anything. She truly is my best friend. She is such a doting mother and grandmother. You can always feel her genuine love when she gives you her famous hugs. She has taught me so much in my life time and I can only hope to be as good as a mom as her. She cares deeply, enjoys life, is always serving other, has a strong testimony, always knows just what you need, is sensitive to others, and is the best Apple Jul around. Thanks you Mom for always been there for me and always reminding me what is important in life.  Happy Birthday to my best friend.. I love you so much and am proud to call you my Mom.
Love your favorite Daughter... :)

Happy, Happy Birthday Spence Dear!!

Monday was my wonderful Hot Stuffs Birthday. He is 32 years young and keeps getting hotter everyday. I sure do love this man of mine. I can't believe that I have been with him for 10 of his birthday's. I do have to say, it's kinda fun growing old with this one. He is the world's best Daddy to our trio of kiddos. He is always thinking of me and what he can do to help or make my day a little bit sweeter. For example - he knew that I have a new fascination with TOMS. He drove all the way to Chandler to buy me some Red Toms (it's not easy finding shoes for a girl with size 11 foot) What for do you ask... just because he loves me!! He is always helping around the house, getting me my diet cokes from sonic, rubs by back (almost every night), calls me several times a day just to say "hi" and see how the day is going.  He is a strong member of our Church, loves others, and is VERY sensitive to others and My needs. My list could go on. I am so proud to call him my eternal companion. We have been through so much together, and seem to overcome it all together. As time goes on and we face more highs and lows, we seem to become stronger in our relationship and love for one another. Happy Birthday Spencer..... I love you with all of my heart! me

All Aboard the Choo Choo Light Rail

 Today I was itching to do something different and fun with the kiddos. We have been very preoccupied with our move and have not spent much quality time with our clan of five. So an adventure was much over due. We decided to ride the Light Rail.. (yes I did say Light Rail) to Tempe. It was so much fun, and the kiddos loved it! We did experience all walks of life, and yes at times I worried about what strange person would sit next to me, or heaven forbid touch me or one of my children... but we turned out just fine. We got off at Mill ave. which only took about 10mins (plenty of time) and then we walked down to Five Guys for dinner.
 Love , love , love Five Guys!! I'm not crazy about their fries, but the fact that you can get a cheeseburger with EVERYTHING and it does not cost you extra is FAB  in my world.
 Scotty has a new love, French Fries!
This sweet little face of Scotty's is called his HULK face. He does it all the time and keeps all of us in stitches! We hit up a sweet candy shop on the way home, road the Light Rail back (which is more interesting after dark), couldn't wait to give them baths and get the public transportation off of them, and played "down by the banks" before family prayer. The Perfect Night with my clan of Five! Life is good once again..

Christmas, New Year, and more! (picture blog)

We went to Disneyland for a quick impromptu trip pre Christmas gift from my parents.

It RAINED the entire time!! My parents were spontaneous too and meet us there.
Princess Tessa got to go to the Bippity Boppity Boutique. So Cute, and So worth the money
Tessa had her Program with Miss Jenee. She  stole the entire show... Literally!
Christmas was amazing and we all got extremely spoiled. Every year we tell our selves that we are going to scale way back... and what happens... More gifts then we can even handle. It sure is fun to spoil though!

Seth has a new love lately... Lego's. Even if it take an entire Sunday afternoon with Mom and Dad to put them together. 

 Grandpa Tom's annual Christmas Dinner. We all got matchy matchy shirt dedicated to the Wright Stores.

Seth getting ready to host his very first New Year's Eve Party and spend the night with cousins. He got all the goodies out all by himself and he even blew up 25 balloons. We had fireworks (thanks to Ya- Ya and Papa) treats, we watch movies, the ball drop in time square, and then they all went to sleep. It was the perfect New Year's Eve.

Tess got a sassy new do.

and...... we are moving.
