Let me introduce...

our daughter Aiden Mason. She weighs 30 lb, measures 3 ft tall, blonde hair, blue eyes.

The Adoption Ceremony went really well and fast too. We were to be at the courthouse at 11:00am on Thursday September 23, 2010 at the Fresno County courthouse. The proceedings went quite fast actually. In attendance were Jake's Mom and sister Becky, our cousin Amber with her daughter Allee, our friends Daryl & Lisa as well as our good friend Robyn. We were so honored and Blessed that those who were able to be there on this special day was soo great. We are so happy they all made it to the ceremony. Thank You. It really meant alot to us to have you there.

Here is a picture of Jake & I being sworn in to take full & legal rights to Aiden.

All 3 of us at the Judges podium. Aiden felt pretty special that she got to sit in the Judges chair.

After the ceremony we treated everyone to John's Incredible Pizza for lunch. A good time was had by all. The rest of the pictures from the ceremony are on our webshots site if you would like to view them. Aiden's Adoption Ceremony.

Again, Thank You to everyone who made it. We love you all very, very much.

Aiden's 4th Birthday party

Today was Aiden's 4th Birthday and her party. Wow, can't believe she's already 4. Her theme was the Disney Princesses (no surprise there). We feasted on burgers, hot dogs, chips and punch for lunch. Following lunch we did cake and ice cream then on to the presents. I think opening presents was her favorite part. LOL Here are a few pics from today's big day! Enjoy. If you would like to view the remaining photos, see our Webshot link. Aiden's 4th Birthday.

What is a Princess party without the Princess cakes?!? :o) Jake's Mom made the princess cake and we ordered the larger cake from Sam's Club.

Hope you enjoy the pictures. In just 4 more days is the Adoption Day!!! We are soo excited. So please keep your eyes peeled for pics and a new blog. Till then...see you next blog.

Jake having surgery

As of today we still haven't heard from the surgery center to set up Jake's surgery for his ankle. Bummer too. We are hoping they'll be doing the surgery not too long after he gets back from his trip to Houston which is the week of the 27th. His orthopedic surgeon said it would be a 6 week recovery after the surgery which means he'll be in a cast during Halloween trick or treating. Guess I'll have to take the girls myself and let him stay home and pass out the goodies to all the little goblins and ghouls. Tee hee.

In other news, Kyra is doing so much better and she actually shows no sign of pain in her neck/shoulder area. It's as if she didn't even have the injury in the first place. Weird. So needless to say we cancelled her follow-up with the orthopedic surgeon since she doesn't need it.

Aiden is turning 4 this coming Sunday and we're throwing her a Disney Princess birthday party. Of which she chose the theme when we went to the party store. So many themes to choose from, it was hard for her to make up her mind.

Aiden chose what she wants to be for Halloween. She wants to be a Bride. She has a really pretty white gown that someone gave us and she's going to use my veil from our Wedding. She has changed her mind so many times in the past few months of what she wants to be for Halloween this year. At first she wanted to be an Oompa Loompa after we watch Willy Wonka and the Chocolate Factory a few months back. For those of you who don't remember or know what an Oompa Loompa looks like, let me refresh your memories. Haha.

This year Kyra is going to be a Ladybug. The costume is absolutely adorable. She's going to look so cute. I found the picture online of what the costume looks like and I then put Kyra's face over the ad girl. haha.
