Thanksging in SoCal

Although it is only my second Thanksgiving, I have to say that there is nothing better than Thanksgiving SoCal style (no offense to my NoCal, Central Coast, and Central Valley peeps, but it's just the best.) It was 75 degrees and sunny. If that's from Global Warming,...then I'm down. I got to hang at the beach near grandpop's, had picture in picture going with Elmo in one box and the Cowboys game going in the other box. I pounded some turkey and other grub. It sure beats baby food. Mom and Dad had to sit at the kid's table with me because there was no room at the other table. I think they were so stoked about that. We just had a blast. I cannot wait for Christmas. Daddy says, "Santa stole Christmas and we are stealin' it back!". Not sure what that means, but I am gonna be bummed if Santa doesn't hook me up. I've been reading in my little picture Bible and am learning that Christmas is really about Jesus. That's super cool, but I am still gonna be bummed if Santa doesn't show up.

IT'S A.........

So I know you are all wondering what is going on. For those of you that do not know I am pregnant, actually 4 1/2 months pregnant. We just keep forgetting to post it on our blog. Well we found out today what we are having and we are having a BOY!!! We are so excited. I can't believe it and I feel like I don't know what to do with a boy but we know we are going to have a blast. So Kai William should be joining our family sometime around April 9! More updates to come and maybe pictures of my already very large belly!

Late, but worth the wait!!!

The whole Hardy family, 8 adults and 7 kids, headed to Hawaii for a week vacation. Mikela loved the ocean and loved playing with her cousins. After our family left, we stayed for one more week with some long time friends the Websters. We had the chance to visit with the Matsui's where Mikela got to ride a horse and see the Acostas new home! We survived Hurricane Flossy, a Tsunami warning, a fire near the house we were staying in but the worst of all was Tropical Storm Mikela!! She was teething with bleeding gums, running a high fever, broke out in a rash and was waking up every two hours!! It made vacation oh so fun, not. Of course the Tropical Storm hit after our family left so it was all on Mommy and Daddy! But all in all, our time in Hawaii was a blast and it was great to spend time with family and visit with great friends!

Swimming Diva Part 3

And finally we make it into the Pool!

Mikela is a total fish. She loves being in the water. She stands on the step and says two and then just steps off/jumps into your arms. It is kinda scary when you are not looking. She also loves going under the water. We can not wait to take her to Hawaii this summer, she is going to love the beach and the ocean.

Swimming Diva Part 2

After the battle with the sunscreen we finally arrive at the Pool!

I don't know if you can tell from the picture but after just two weeks of being in Colorado Mikela is already extremely tan. We get comments all the time at how brown she is.

Getting ready to go to the Pool!

As you can tell Mikela is not a big fan of putting on sunscreen!

Here are some pictures from Easter Sunday.

Mikelas Birthday Party

Sorry we have been so behind on putting our pictures on the blog. We thought we would do some catch up! These are some pictures from Mikéla's Party. She had so much fun with all her friends and family. But like usual she wouldn't let my dad out of her sight, she is a Papa's girl! Mikéla loved all of her gifts but I think the cards were her favorite. Enjoy the pictures.

Mikela turns One!!!

We started a fun tradition for Mikela's birthday each year. The morning of her birthday we went to Old West Cinnamon Roll and had breakfast. Then we went to the beach and Mikela played in the water in her pj's. She loved it and got totally wet! You have to love living on the central coast.
