chloe loves stella....


so we had so much fun at disneyland with the shepard's.... stella and chloe loved the parade.. they sat together in the same stroller, shared a bag of pretzels and did not take their big eyes off the parade... it was so precious... we went on a few rides.. stella was scared to death of dumbo and chloe didn't love thunder mountain considering her dad told her she was going on thomas the train.. we finished the night off with fireworks and the snow on main street... dinseyland is truly magical....

stella big afro and big feet

stella had so much fun sitting in her car seat inside the house..... how funny is my precious daughter with her big hair...

so happy thanksgiving to everyone..... we had such a wonderful thanksgiving at my mom's house... we had a full house, my father and sister in law were with us this year.. it was such an amazing dinner, to watch my mom cook all that food was so amazing... she loves to cook for her family... so stella and i spent the night at my mom's on wednesday, we ordered in pick up sticks and we help my mom start her famous zuccini bread... actually abbey rilla was helping while summer and i were there to keep them company... this is always our favorite night thanksgiving eve, i love waking up to the smell of food cooking in the kithcen and music playing... we did miss our dad, but he was up playing in the turkey bowl and then came over early.... i put stella to bed that night and abbey and i went to see august rush which was an amaizng movie.... so romantic, i loved it and would highly recomend it.. i'm not sure if abbey loved it since she fell asleep..... we also went to see enchanted on thursday night, very cute... so jereme got all our christmas lights up this morning and stella and i tried to help but kinda just got in the way... they look great... we are so excited for cristmas... i love the holidays.....

look at her go.... she is in charge and don't get in her way.......

park day

so we went to the park and tana and stella were having so much fun until tana threw some sand into to stella eyes..... stella was very sad... she kept her distance for awhile.... i must say tana rules the park... she runs up and down and even does pull ups on the bar... she is such a little monkey climbing up and down the jungle gym... crazy girl...

summer's halloween party

so halloween was such a blast besides the fact i woke up with pink eye in both eyes.... i didn't need a costume because i was a scary monster with red eyes... i got drops so it's getting better... so as you can see everyone had so much fun... we missed our sister zana, she had to work at the hospital but her husband ren came to represent... everyone got lots of candy trick or treating, stella had her first sucker and thought she was in heaven... she was so tired she slept all night until seven am which is very rare so that was a dream for me.... so sad halloween is over but now we have the holidays to look forward to.....

so the snyder family went to disneyland and got season passes, we are so excited.... we had so much fun.... it was stella's first time and she had such a blast... she loves her ballerina minnie mouse. we are bad parents because the first ride we took her on was snow white (the line was short) and it scared her to death... the whole ride is dark with a scary witch... she was clinging on to me for her life... lucky we lifted he spirit up and took her on the small world which she loved so much.. her little hands were moving the whole time.... jereme and i haven't been there in so long, we can't believe how much it has changed.. so anyone who wants to go to disneyland stella and i are in....

so stella loves her little walker that her cousin montana let her borrow.... she is walking all over the house with some assistance of course..she'll be walking on her own shortly. she is a little monkey, she is so fast i just can't keep up with her... i just changed her seats now she is in the britax marathon and she loves it.. she feels like a queen in her big seat. i wasn't exactly sure how to install correctly so i had this lady come over who was certified in car seat safey to help me... she was amazing, she was cute and lived right here in mission viejo. i learned soooo much from her. by the way i had it installed incorrectly and my peg perego was installed incorrectly too for the past nine months, so scary.. now my girl is safe in the car with her mama.. i would highly recommend her if you had any problems or question... well worth the time and money..

k this is jereme's favorite photo of his girl... stella was rocking out to daddy's music on the way to italy... she did so well on the long flight.. we went on a 10 day cruise all around italy this summer.... it was so amazing, we loved every city but our favorite was florence and rome.. so much history, so much to see and not enough time.. we loved gelato and coca cola light's... jereme found a place here in oc that you can get them at sprinkle in newport. i have been there twice and they were out both times but luckily they had plenty of cup cakes.. so yummy.. we can't wait to go back to europe hopefully sooner than later but who knows now that stella is becoming a handful.. but she does love to travel just like her momma...

i have never seen stella so excited.... she was at lucy's 3 year old birthday party... she thought she was a big girl loving every minute. i can't believe how time flys, she just turned 10 months. ta ta for now my girl is having a fit..
