what a great

Thanksgiving we had. We had Todd and Di and Glen and the Christian Gang over and we played games and had good food and relaxed and so on. The day before we took pics of the girls ( and a few of us) at the Wetlands park and after I'm done editing all my client photos, you will see more. For now, here's the headlining twosome. Brielle had the Chicken pox the week before Thanksgiving week and now Aria has them. So, i will be at home, editing, sewing decorating and such for the next 4-5 days. So, if you plan on coming by leave your little ones at home. So sad but at least they will be done with them and NOT have to get the shot b/c now they are immune anyways! Luckily too Aria's is milder than B's was.

Anywho, More to come and hope you all had a great Thanksgiving!

Re-hash: Lahontan Lake


Playing at the Lake was so much fun! Uncle Todd was such a hit with the kiddos! He's going to be such a great dad in the future!
Peter made his best face playing pirates on the boat.
The twins! Who is who?

aunt Cristi and Brielle. we all loved playing on the Jet Ski! So much rip roaring fun! Brielle especially loved it!)
Aria preferred water that she could put her feet in and splashing or chasing Cali( mom's dog)

My water girls did so great this summer. ISR lessons paid off well!

Re- hasing the summer: Lake Tahoe



So, just getting to Tahoe was a bit of a time as we took the three kids and 3 adults and a bike to the Lake with us all in one car! We dropped Brad off away from where we were going to be and let him bike down to us through the winding trails of the Sierra Nv. Mountain range! A few minutes in, he has a CrAsH!!!He was okay but it left a small gash in his arm. Me and Tirza played with the kids in the water and the sand for a few hours. It was so nice and relaxing. A bit colder than our pool and lake in LV! Still fun nonetheless. I swam out to a buoy and back- good practice for my upcoming Tri at the time. I actually really like OPEN WATER SWIMMING! I guess lots of people have water fears about swimming but, water has always been soothing to me- not scary.

Well, the girls played on borrowed tubes and chased schools of these tiny fishes. Tirza relaxed in the water as She was kind of frustrated that day. Her Dr. Had told her that she was only a couple cm's dilated and she was at her due date. That is the last thing a pregnant woman wants to hear- LUCKILY she had baby Chase that next morning/day! Silly Dr.! what did he know?


Here's more pics of the kids!!!she LOVED her goggles all season long!-she even chased the fish wearing them in case she needed to dive down and catch them up- said she!


look at Owens Muscles! He and the girls had a great time playing and being silly

dads make the best sharks to play chase with!

Too much fun! I already miss the summer and hanging out with the cousins!

re-hashing the summer: Circe Du SO-LAME!

So, growing up in Fallon, i used to see these circus tents go up occasionally and i NEVER got to attend a circus before( except for Ringling Bros. in Reno with a friend) so, when i heard a circus was in town, i thought it would be fun to take the kids. I was thinking tigers and elephants and juggler etc... Well, it wasn't really all what i cracked up to be.

You can tell from the disdain in the children's faces!. There was no big tent, it was broadcast in spanish and english practically at the same time. The kids got in free b/c i picked up some tickets at the car repair shop( then i later saw them everywhere i went) but i ended up paying 30. for 3 adults . It would have been fine but...
Some kids got bored, wanted a red slushie for 6.00(x 6 kids you get it). There were no tigers or elephants. Just a donkey and mini pony.
some ameteur bikers in a ball a wierd, not funny clown, a boy with ropes and whips. In a cowby town that's not that impressive:(
Can you tell how much fun they are having? I kept thinking" i woke up Aria out of her nap for this?" I guess it was a lesson learned.
The acrobat lady was not half bad, thank goodness!
Aria really wanted the Red Slushie drink but, i said no!

The BEST part of the show was seeing the RAINBOWS! There were two( only one pictured) and the kids thought that was the coolest thing of all. Thanks to our Lord for making the Best show on Earth. Here's a Tip: If the tickets are free, there's always a catch and if you see a sign tha says Circus Osorio it really means: Circe Du SoLame! DON'T WASTE your time or money!

Halloween Pics!

So, luckily we did stay home b/c I got pretty sick and had to spend a couple hundred on meds and Aria's wolf costume came in on FRIDAY( finally). It turned out to be so cute and i took it pretty easy all weekend. Here's pics of the girls and their costumes!



trick or treat!


grumpy wolf

SAD/ Pouty wolf ( do't you just want to squeeze her:)??? I think she looks like Peter a lot here when he was younger!

we had to add a bow so no one could mistake her for a BOY wolf. Aria kept growling and roaring at people( too cute) and she ket saying she was a Din-oh-so!

Twik or tweet ( how she says it)

you must pack some flowers for Grandmas basket:)
We had so much fun just going around our little neighborhood. The girls loved it and Aria would not let us dump out her candy a bit so she could carry it better. She ended up just dragging it as much as she could. Brielle opted for Daddy to hold her basket until it was "showtime"!
We are so lucky to have such fun little girls!

The Pumpkin Patch

SO, we didn't get to take our trip up to Fallon( bummer) but, we did take the girls to the parking lot pumpkin patch here. They got to slide, swing, go on rides, in a bounce house and petting zoo too! We had so muvh fun with Gma and Gpa Christian and Uncle Brian! Their Favorite ride was the boat one that swun back and forth. They went on it twice. But, the slide was what the styaed on the most!
Aria got to go twice b/c B was sick one of the times.

Aria got kicked out of the Petting Zoo b/c she kept chasing chickens and making them crazy. She loves to scream in excitement too! Here's few cute shots i got of them before all the excitement!




silly faces! Too cute!
