Operation Grom ready to go!!!

We are so excited to announce that after years and years of trying to get a t-shirt company going we are finally ready to launch Operation Grom, our very own children's clothing company.

Operation Grom is high-quality yet affordable T-shirts with fun and cool graphics for Babies and Kids... Our first collection is called "Surf Camp"... The theme and direction is pretty self explanatory...

Please take a look at the attached flier and then the web site... There should be an active link on the flier that you just click on that will take you to our site, but if not then cut and paste the following into the address bar of your browser... Due to high traffic volume the site may load a little slowly, but be patient as we get things going...

Please feel free to forward this on to all of your friends, family, and anyone you know that knows kids that would look great in these tees (which is everyone)...

Belly update

This last sat. I had a little scare. I started bleeding so I rushed to the hospital and was stuck there for 9 days. They said that my placenta tore a little and that i was contracting. Everything looks good with the baby they just didn't know what caused the tear. I am now home thank goodness and on bed rest basically until I have the baby. Which is so hard for me but of course worth it. I am so thankful for all the visits and the phone calls it meant so much to me and made my life so much better while I was in torture in the hospital. thanks for your great love and support!

Here are some pictures of me yesterday at a little over 29 weeks.

Halloween was super fun this year. We started off the celebration by going to the pumpkin patch on Monday night. It was super fun and it really got me into the whole halloween spirit.

My parents came down for the halloween weekend and it made Saxon's day. He could not get enough of them. In fact, he is still talking about them.

On Halloween we went to Tanaka farms and enjoyed the pumpkin patch, the corn maze, and the petting zoo.

Then that night the boys dressed up in the Monkey costumes and we went down town to main street where Saxon went on all the blow up slides and bounce houses.

We then came back and trick or treated around our neighborhood.

After the kids went to bed we had a halloween party. We had about 20 people there and we stayed up until around 1:30 playing games and hanging out.

This has to be the best costume of the night!

To finish off the weekend right my parents took us to Medieval Times. It was so fun especially because the last time we went as a family we had the black and white knight and this time once again Black and White!

Life is good!

My life has been busy but it has been good. I am having a great time being a mom of two boys. Here is a few things that have made my life good this last month!

Living so close to disneyland.

This last month I have been able to go to D-land 3 times. One time with the whole family, one time with Debbie and her family, and one time with Nash and his family. All the visits have been really fun and I love getting out and doing something different.

The whole family at disneyland (yes saxon has no pants on, he got so scared on pirates that he peed his pants!)

The cousins at disneyland

Cooking group.

Some of my friends and I have started this group where we make meals for each other during the week. It has been amazing and has made my life 100 times easier. I only have to make dinner on monday and the rest of the week is taken care of. It saves so much time on dishes, shopping, and cooking. I don't think I can ever go back to cooking every night.


Another life saver. We have started back up our playgroup and we have it twice a week now. It is so great to be able to go to the store and get things done with only Micah. It is also great to have Saxon play with great friends and have a fun time.


This last month we have been able to have Jule and her family come down, Nash and his family and Tauna and Breydon. It has been so fun to see all the cousins playing and spending time together. Saxon and Micah love their cousins and Saxon talks about them all the time. I am so glad that they can grow up close to his cousins.


Micah has started sleeping through the night. It is amazing the difference a great night rest makes. Saxon is also sleeping like a champ during nap time and night time. I feel like I have so much energy and it makes me so much happier and I have a ton more patience.

Saxon has always had a great smile that makes me always smile and now Micah is taking after his brother. Micah started smiling around 6 weeks and now is always smiling. I love it!

Great weather

The weather has been great here in So Cal and we have been taking full advantage of it. We have been swimming almost everyday and we have been going to the beach at least once a week.
