17 months, Joshua's birthday, and 4 years old!

Hi everyone!  We drove down to Los Angeles right after Christmas and spent time with family.  Here, we met up with Daddy's side.  I was such a ham with Great Uncle James, Great Uncle Kai, Great Auntie Cindy, and Great Auntie Nina.

 We also saw Auntie Beatrice and Uncle Chris too at dinner.

 The main reason we came down was to attend Joshua's birthday party.  It was during my nap time on the way there, so I fell asleep in the car.  I don't remember why my shoe is up by my head, but I guess I was keeping myself entertained on the way there and fell asleep that way.

 There were some yummy treats there, so I'm enjoying myself.

I REALLY enjoyed the jumpy house.  Grandma was holding onto me from the outside, but that didn't matter at all.  I was having a blast.

 Look at me!!!

  Here's an updated picture of the dragon babies. Happy birthday, Joshua!  Mommy laughed when she saw this picture later.  I didn't look comfortable at all.

And here's one of Mommy and me.

 Here are some pictures that Great Uncle Richard took of us at a restaurant one night.

 This one is of all the dragon babies across generations.

We had dinner on New Year's Eve with more family.  But here I am with Grandpa.

We celebrated lots of birthdays that night.  This cake was for Great Auntie Leona.  Both Alyssa and I got to blow out the candles.
This cake was for Daddy's birthday.  Happy birthday, Daddy!

We also celebrated my birthday early too. All this candle blowing was fun!  It was a great trip as always!
Once home, I was back to my antics again.


I have no fear.  By the way, I'm 17 months, on my way to being 18 months old in about a week.

Man, Julia got a lot of screen time.  Well, now it's my turn.  Here I am with socks way up to my knees!  My parents don't know why, but I have this thing about knees and I love socks that go up to my knees.  So silly.
 As the title says, I'm 4 years old now!  Happy birthday to me!

Here's a family picture.  I don't know why my head is tilted back, but oh well.

I had a lot of fun with my school friend, Drew.  Thanks, everyone, for coming!

Back to me, look how I'm just stylin' and cruisin' along.

We hope you enjoyed the overload of pictures.  We also went to Disneyland during this trip, but we didn't take any pictures.  We hope you had a wonderful holiday season and a Happy New Year!

Merry Christmas!!

Hello everyone!  We're back!  Sorry we've been bad about blogging these last month or so.  It's been really busy with the holidays.  Let's get right to it.  One of the things Mommy wanted to start doing with us is making a gingerbread house.  She never made one as a kid, but wanted to have that experience with us (well, mainly me since Julia is too young right now).  And since I'm nearly 4 years old, she figured I'd stay interested enough to do this.  Look how meticulous I am about putting the decorations on.

Here's the finished product.  Of course, I had to pose it with my loader.

I also get to hang up my own ornaments this year.  I helped a little last year, but this year, I'm all about it.

Me too!  I put them on and take them off again.  I kept saying "ball ball" every time I saw one.  I some times like to pick one up and throw it too.  I don't understand why they don't bounce though.

We went to Meagan's house for our annual holiday party.  Daddy was out of town in China, so we didn't have the silly face to look at behind the cameras.  But this is the best shot we got for all of us.  Next Christmas, there will be even more kids as Auntie Grace and Auntie Terry are both pregnant.

 Mommy found me on top of this bin.  Hey!  I have better view up here and am in a better position to play with things.

Some times Julia likes to just lay on the ground for no reason.  I join her once in a while.

Yay!!! Daddy came back in time for Christmas!  (There was a chance that he wouldn't).  I was soo excited that I climbed into his suitcase.  Next time take me with you!

Here I am ready for Ashley's birthday party at her grandparents' house.

 Merry Christmas everyone!!  Here are all of the grandkids with my grandparents!  Our parents were certainly putting up a show for this picture to work.

 Alyssa and I are best buddies, making funny faces.

 Why am I being squished?  Mommy wanted a picture of all of us, Julia, that's why.
We hope you enjoyed this short post.  More to come to catch up!
