Emi, Chloe, and Papi

Emi got a special package in the mail the other day from Great Auntie Carole! She was so excited because she got the two chihuahuas from Beverly Hills Chihuahua! Thank you Auntie Carole!

Emi's School Harvest Festival

Emi had so much fun on Halloween morning when Daddy took her to the Harvest Festival at her school. Daddy got a photo of her with Miss Krysti and Miss Michelle.

Emi hits the pumpkin patch

Emi had so much fun at the pumpkin patch with her cousins Mia and Luke. They watched a puppet show, went in the bounce house, went on the swings, and drove the John Deere! Happy Halloween!

Emi's signature pose!

This is a photo from a recent photoshoot we did at the Gap Casting Call event! Go Emi!

let's dust off the ol' blog!

Well, it's finally time to blog again! Don't even know where to start! Emily is still attempting to transition to her new 3 year old preschool class and is trying to go back to the 2 year old one. She really misses her old teachers. She's really growing and has accomplished and changed so much over these past two months! Look for more updates, hopefully daily. I'll try!

A small square of grass is NOT a lawn!

It was nice to be at Auntie Ra Ra and Uncle Jack's house this week!Emily and Mia really enjoyed some old fashioned sprinkler play on a front lawn that is bigger than a square (a.k.a. a Southern California "front lawn"). They also had a picnic on the front porch!

The Max G. Fan Club

Emi and Mia started a new fan club this week! It's the Max G. fan club! They are co-presidents and co-biggest fans! Of course they also run the Matt B. Fan Club, The Mikey C. Fan Club, The Taylor G. Fan Club and several others!

Yay, they're engaged!

Emi would like to say Congratulations to her Big Cousin Matt (who she calls "Map") on his engagement to Jacqueline! She's so excited for them and can't wait to celebrate with them when she gets to Chicago.

We've officially had our "Britney moment"!

Well, we've done it, we've had our Britney moment! Believe it or not, Andy went along with it! To make matters worse, Grandpa Baron was also in the car! We were just trying to kill time while waiting for our photos in the park! It was just a big empty lot! But now, she doesn't understand why she can't drive EVERY day!

C'mon! Is Abercrombie & Fitch's Advertising Really That Controversial?

Every time we walk by this store in the mall the booming music can be heard from outside. So, of course, Emily wants to go in and dance. She doesn't want anyone to actually watch her, so when there aren't any employees in the front of the store, she'll really get her groove on. Even though she tends to want to stay for a while, Mommy really doesn't mind! It's a nice "change of scenery". I remember a while back when there was such controversy with their catalogue. I don't understand? I can honestly say I was offended IN NO WAY by the use of advertising in their store. Who knows? Maybe the catalogue is different?

Does Anyone Watch That Show "Big Love"?

Well, here we all are! Uncle Mike pointed out as we were all walking together in the mall, how much we probably looked like the perfect polygamous family! Three happy mommies, 5 little kiddies all ranging in ages and THE Daddy! NOT! But it made a perfect photo opp! What do you think?

"I want Katie!"

Emi can't stop talking about Katie! She wants to see her! She wants to play "wif" her! She misses her! These are all things she's been saying all morning. I guess Mommy and Auntie Jenny better collaborate soon!

Happy Birthday Uncle Shawny!

Emi wants to wish her Uncle Shawny a very happy birthday today! She can't wait to see him again and wrestle with him, since he's one of her many favorite wrestling partners. (a.k.a. he can actually handle her level of "energy")

She's Moving on Up!

Today was Emily's last day as a "Blue Allie"! On Monday, she will officially be moved up with her friend Rachel, to the Purple Caterpillar class. I didn't expect to cry because the way that her school is set up, it goes all year round, so it seemed like it would be an easy transition. Especially because in the mornings when she gets there early, all of the kids are in one room, which is the Blue Allie room, until the teachers all get there and start taking their own classes. When I walked in, we put her things away and I started to talk to Ms. Alma and Miss Krysti, 2 of her 3 teachers, except that I got this HUGE lump in my throat and my eyes welled up with tears. Then I think I made Ms. Alma get a little teary. They finally talked me through it and got my mind off it, but then had to tell me that Emily's portfolio was on the counter for me to take. They basically advised me NOT to open it any time soon since it would probably make me start crying again (it did). I know it's not goodbye because I will see them all, all of the time (especially because Miss Krysti has come over to babysit Emi). Of course, when I went to pick up Emily, the eyes welled up again because when I walked in to get her things out of her cubby and her paper slot, THEY DIDN"T EXIST ANYMORE! Her name had been removed and her picture had also been removed and put in her backpack. It was very sad. And it's only preschool! Oh well, we said goodbye to Ms. Emanuela (the third teacher) and said that we'd see them all on Monday, because we will. It was a happy-sad!

Emi Hits the Orange County Fair

Well, finally something to "blog" about. Emi and I bravely headed out to the O.C. Fair on a hot July day. It was wristband day, so for only $20.00, she could ride all the rides she could handle. She went on the pirate ship, the jeeps, the dragon kiddy roller coaster, the Survival maze, the train, and the water bumper boats. We met up with Emi's friend Taylor. It was a fun time. Emi seems to have a slight obsession/fascination with the fair, so she already went once this summer with Grandma Laraneta, but that time we only ate lots of junk and looked at animals. This was the time for riding rides. Next stop...Arizona State Fair this fall with Grandma and Grandpa Baron!

Happy Birthday Auntie Cami!

Mommy is going back and filling in birthdays that she may not have done posts for since the blog started. So...Emily would like to wish her Auntie Cami a Happy Belated birthday! (we did send a birthday message that was on time, the blog is just belated!) Can't wait to play again!

Have you serenaded your doggie lately?

Emi continues to play her guitar day in and day out. She was trying to serenade Bear this morning.

Nope she's not at Woodstock!

Emi really looks like a natural here the way she's walking around strumming her new guitar from Auntie Carole! I'm not sure how she knows how to hold it and strum correctly? Hmmm!

Mr. Luke's Rockin 1st Birthday Bash!

Emi had so much fun at Luke's Rockin' 1st birthday bash on Saturday. Her favorite parts include playing music with Ms. Elena, eating her own personalized cupcake, running around with Mia (see matching hawaiian dresses), strumming her new guitar from Auntie Carole, and playing ball with Grampa Baron. It was a great day! We hope you had fun Luke!

Emi's Trip South

Emi had a little trip South last week. First she went to Legoland, then the San Diego Zoo, and finally Sea World. She had so much fun sleeping at the hotel and especially going on the waterslides at the pool with Daddy.
When it was time to check out, Emi INSISTED on pulling her own suitcase! She's a very "do it myself" kind of girl!
