Our Boy Is A Winner!

Extra, extra, read all about it!
I entered Cade into The OC Register's costume contest thinking nothing would ever come of it. Well... we got the paper today... and.... well.... take a look!
Front cover: There were 9 photos selected and look who is on the left! We are so proud of our Little Pea! This newspaper will be framed by tomorrow:)

St. John Knits Reunion

I used to work at St. John Knits about 10 yrs ago. Fresh out of college with not a care in the world. No responsibility except making sure to get home safely after a night out. The great thing about St. John was that I made friends with a bunch of girls in sales with me. But after a few years, we all starting quitting SJK one by one. I lost touch with almost all of them.
Well, thanks to FB we are back in touch. And thanks to being a SAHM (Stay At Home Mom) right now, I have the time to meet them all for playdates. Today we met at a park in Tustin. It was so good to see these girls. We found it funny that years ago we all used to "play" and now we are sitting in a park watching our little ones play.
Thanks for a fun day Girls! It was great getting to catch up. It felt like no time had gone by.

Disneyland - Trip #2

Yep, that's right. We went 2x in 2 weeks... and Cade had no clue where he was. At least I have the pix to show him how spoiled he was:)

Cade & I went on Thursday and hung out for an hour before Brad got off work and could meet us there. While we were waiting, we met this guy...And then we rode this ride....

Daddy arrives! Family shot:)

And another...

While waiting for dinner, Cade was showing us what he has found.... his feet!

Teething Stinks!

Poor Cade Kenny... he is beginning to teethe. He is drooling like crazy and has terrible pain. I hate that he is tortured like this. The only relief is this stuff..... However, Doc says I am supposed to use this stuff sparingly.... yikes!


My little Hurley Baby...

Tuesday, Tuesday

My Sleeping Beauty... Poppy took this pic:)Cade & I spent the night at Mimi & Poppy's house last night. Mimi left a lasting impression as she left for work this morning.

Cade's stocking from Pottery Barn arrived today. We tried to put him in it, but he is a bit too big. I can't wait to fill it for his very 1st Christmas! :) I hear Santa spoils little boys & girls on their 1st Christmas:)

Rock n Roll.... and run too!

Yesterday was the L.A. Rock n Roll half marathon. My friend Sally & I ran it together. Just for you I ran with my camera so I could show you the race. When I wasn't taking pictures, the camera was snuggled in between 'the girls' :)

Here is the time I had to leave the house...
This is what Cade was doing as I left...

And this is what Brad & Chewy were doing....

And here I am! Rise and shine:)

I picked Sally up and we were on our way. Here we are putting our timing strip on our shoe.

Posing for a pic about 10 minutes before starting time.

Look at all these people! I think they said there was about 10,000 runners! Everyone was anxious as we waited for the race to begin.

Rock n Roll marathons have bands along the course. Here is one of them (under the white tent)...

Some people dress up and wear funny outfits. I guess Elvis is still alive!?

Here we are in action...

At mile 6, we picked up this guy. We started chatting with him and he ended up running the race with us. Pretty darn impressive if you ask me... he is 64 years old! Come to find out, Jeff is also running the Vegas marathon. So we are going to run it together. He is doing the half and I am doing the full, but we can at least run the first 13 miles together. It is SO MUCH EASIER to run with someone. That way the conversation distracts you from thinking about how much farther you have to go.

Then at mile 10 we pickled up this girl... Christine was making fun of me for being a "Mommy Blogger" as she calls it. It was pretty funny... we started in a group of just the 2 of us, and ended up with a group of 4!

Rock n Roll marathons also have cheerleaders along the course to give some encouragement and entertainment. Jeff took a minute to give the girls some high fives!

Another band...

The scenery...

Running backwards to get a quick pic of me. We are almost done. This was around mile 12. At this point Sally & I left Jeff & Christine so we could sprint the last mile in.

Griffith park...

Only half a mile to go!

We're done! Woo hoo! Such a great feeling. We finished in 2 hours and 7 minutes. Not bad. Although we did have to stop once for a restroom break. Rats! I hate having to stop because we stop, but the clock doesn't.
Overall: 3051 out of 9641
Division: 236 out of 1137
Gender: 1147 out of 5843

We waited for Jeff & Christine at the end for a pic. Never found Christine though. Jeff wanted to show his coworkers this pic so that they know that he "still got it" with the ladies:)

Had to show you one more crazy outfit...

The race was a lot of fun, but I couldn't wait to get home to see these 2...

I needed my "Cade fix". 7 hours was way too long to be away from my Little Stud. How the heck am I going to make it when I have to go back to work!? I better go buy a lottery ticket!

Woof Woof

Aren't these 2 doggies just the cutest!? Personally, I think the black & white one is to die for:) Cade is thinking: "Mom, take this silly hat off of me! I look like a dork!" :)

M-I-C-K-E-Y M-O-U-S-E!

Yesterday, Brad & I took Cade on his very first trip to.... yep, you guess it.... DISNEYLAND! As you can see, Cade was fast asleep from the car ride. Here we go to look for Mickey....

Almost there! The magic is right inside those gates! Can you feel our excitement!? Note: Our little mouseketeer is still dreaming of butterflies:)

We're in! First stop... The Mad Hatter to get Cade his 1st set of mouse ears. Brad volunteered to model them, since the Cadester was still dozing.

Back view...

The next 3 pix were taken later in the evening, but I might as well show Cade modeling his own mouse ears now!

All decorated for Halloween:) I just LOVE the holidays at Disneyland. Gets me in the spirit.

This is my favorite pic.... the 3 of us in front of the castle.

And then in front of Small World... yep, our Little Man is STILL asleep!

This was taken from our spot in line of Small World.

We took Cade out of the stroller to get in line and he still stayed asleep! So much excitement must've pooped him out.

As we get in the boat and start the ride, he is just beginning to wake up. Yay! Now the real fun can begin!

Cade was bright eyed looking around... (although the pic looks otherwise:)

So much to see!

Look at us! Who would've thought Cade would be at Disneyland on a boat at 15 weeks old!?

More eye candy!

One last pose with Daddy while grabbing a pizza on the way home:)

What a FUN time we had! Everything is so much bigger & brighter when you see it through a child's eyes. I kept telling Brad that I felt like a little kid again. I cannot wait to see Cade's eyes light up when he gets old enough to comprehend what's going on:) Until then, I will kiss & cuddle my Little Man like it's going out of style.
