Growing Up

We have just finished our 3rd week of Master's Kids- a one day a week mommy and me program through our church that prepares 4/5 year olds for school next year (gulp)

When we come in Weston traces his name, says a Bible verse and puts a sticker on a chart for completing his homework for the week

Craft time is his favorite

After the first week Daddy took us out to lunch and Weston is showing us how he raises his hand to talk in class

It has been great so far to stretch and grow him out of his comfort zone and helpful for me to see areas that we need to work on. We can't wait for the rest of the year and for the friendships he is making.
We love our Master's Kid!

Still drooling...

I made these quick turkey melts after church yesterday for lunch and I'm still thinking about them ;)

Turkey Apple Swiss Croissants

Organic turkey breast
Raw baby Swiss cheese
Dijon mustard
Thinly sliced Granny Smith apple

Layer all your ingredients with the cheese on top, then broil until the cheese melts and croissants crisp up- yum!

An LA Birthday

It's been harder to post these days...The end of summer, warm days filled with wet and muddy little boys and a growing belly with lots of nesting to do! 

There is much to catch up on but the most recent event was Andrew's birthday- and we do love to celebrate our daddy! Andrew's mom was able to visit this year and celebrate with us, which is always more fun. So it ended up being more of a birthday week for him!

First we headed to Malibu to cool off and have dinner on the coast. It was a gorgeous night and we all loved the yummy seafood and getting our toes wet in the waves.

Then we came back home and had Andrew's favorite red velvet cake and shirley temples for dessert

At the end of the week Andrew and I had a fabulous date night downtown with a fancy roof top dinner at Perch and then dessert at Bottega Louie

And for his birthday present from all the family, Andrew was able to get some new golf clubs!

We love you so much Andrew! You are such a gift to us and I can't imagine my life without you in it. Thank you for being the best husband and father I know, for leading us, loving us and working so hard for us!

Happy Birthday!
