Pumpkin Patch Tour 2012

With a heavy heart I bid a sad farewell to October...SWEET OCTOBER!  It was a great month...topped off with celebrating my 1 year anniversary with the love of my life...My Jamas.  My poor husband is probably relived that October is over...because along with it I dragged him to every pumpkin patch within 60 mile radius...but we had FUN!  We started celebrating our Sweet Bella with a FABULOUS WITCHED TEA PARTY (pictures to come soon) and now we prepare to pound the pavement tonight with four super cute trick or treaters...their costumes are adorable...can't wait to share...I actually made 3 out of the 4 of them!

Bye October...I will miss you much!

Our 2 Month Old Blueberry

This month:
cooing like crazy
melting our hearts with your smiles
talking back to us
following us with your eyes
loving your swing, bassinet...but....mostly our arms.

Judging by the tumble weeds rolling by on this blog you can see that I have stood strong...unwaivering my promise that I made to myself to quench every single second I have with my lil newborn Cruz.  Ofcourse that means also all my other lil baby chicks....but....I have to be able to soak up my last lil newborn...every fluffy hair morning and sweet sounding coo.  Our Cruz is already 2 months old and this time has totally redefined TIME FLIES BY for me...look how big he is...already so full of his personality....and already made his perfect lil nook in our happy family.  I love you so much my sweet lil have no idea how much I love you...and every night I pray you feel even just a smidge of that you the sense that I will take care of you for the rest of my life!

Pumpkin Patch Tour 2012 II

I don't know what all of 1 year one of my favorite patches became a nightmare!
OC Patchers BEWARE....Usually Pa's Pumpkin Patch to me is great...a lot for the kids...a cute petting zoo...and a RUDUNK amount of pumpkins strewn all around...NOT THIS YEAR...there are more yucky bouncers taking up valuable real estate where those beautiful orange gourds usually reside...and the people....oh LORD the people....this past Sunday Night was worse than a summer night at Disneyland...NO THANKS. We ended up taking a picture...petting some sheep...and gettin the heck out of Dodge!

My Pumpkins

14 Halloweens ago I became obsessed with snuggling my one and only baby and watched Snoopy in all his Great Pumpkin Goodness..
I have not allowed 1 year to go by where I don't gather all my babies to snuggle and watch this on a cozy fallish night..
No matter how tired..or how old my kids get I will be sure to gather them all up and continue this and many other traditions...why...well for many reasons..the obvious being it's fun..the kids love it..I can justify popping popcorn and perhaps dumping a bag of Candy Corn in the bucket. :)
But my main reason is that in my own weird way this is a constant reminder to them and me that no mater how many years fly by they will all always be my babies...they will all ALWAYS be my priority in life and I will always have time for each and every one of them.  Especially important for me because it IS so important to me that everyone feels taken care of...and it has weighed on my mind more than ever when I wake up and care for a newborn but also drop one of at HIGH SCHOOL.
I can't tell you how fulfilling it is for my heart to care for these kids...and how proud they make me everyday.

I have never owned this movie...and I FINALLY bought it this year and surprised Johnny ( funny enough he is the biggest fan of snoopy).

Pumpkin Tour 2012

Remember me..
it's Maria..the absent...pumpkin obsessed...newborn baby munchin latina.
Been really busy over here nursing a baby to his CHUBBIEST GLORY..and this is to blame for my lack of blabbing over here on my blog...not to mention my insanley redunkulous ADDICTION TO INSTAGRAM...oh my word...OBSESSED...but I will touch on that at another day and time.

Where was I...oh yes...CHUBBY GLORY...well yes been super busy being mommy to 4 and wifey to 1....but I can never to be to busy for a lil Pumpkin Ladies and Gentlemen...let Pumpkin Patch Tour 2012 commence.

Zoomar's Pumpkin Patch
October 6
nice fallish weather
moderate supply of pumpkins
cute collection of animals to feed and ride
REDUNKLOUS amount of money to be charged.
Overall a cute place..and the kids enjoyed themselves even the big hairy teenage rocker...and Mateo almost fainted of happiness at the sight of the huge dinosaur...BUT VISITOR BEWARE..this place is a RIP OFF...we left with 1 less c note in our wallet...and for those of you who don't know what a c note is...$100....CRAZY!

 I love me some sexy hubby holding a chubby toddler
 He actually loved his horse...this crying came when the horse stopped for a second..and he thought the ride was over...Really Mateo?
 Bella and Sam...such cute friends...wish they lived closer to each other!
 In utter AWE!!!!
 Father and Son....we were SO HAPPY TO HAVE GRANDPA WITH US!!!!
 Coolest part of the patch a corn kernal pit...the kids LOVED IT
 all of our babies!!!
and the best part....I got to bring this priceless pumpkin home with me!!!!
