Once again, we went to go see So You Think You Can Dance! It was AWESOME! The best yet. Even though I was the 5th wheel with my parents and Zac and Crystal, I still had such a blast. In fact, I found my birthday present while I was there. The girl in front of me and her flaming gay friend both had their cameras up in the air the entire show. At intermission I noticed some of the shots she was getting. They were awesome, so I asked her what camera it was. When she told me I text Jeremy and asked him to research it, he found a good deal and now I am getting a sweet birthday present! I CANNOT wait.
Before the show, we went to dinner at the Cheesecake Factory in Mission Viejo. Then the show was at The Pond in Anaheim. Afterwards we went back to Cheesecake Factory and got dessert! lol...the funny thing is...at dinner my dad didn't finish all his food so he asked the waitress what time they closed. She said midnight and my dad proceeded to ask her if they could hold his leftovers in their fridge until we came back later that night. He cracks me up. So of course, we get there and his food is in the fridge with all the cheesecakes in it. Hilarious.
Anyway- here are some of the pictures I took. Not so great because my camera kinda stinks, but I am getting a new one so ...NEXT YEAR.

3 flower picks from Rod Works. 1 bucket from Tai Pan. Brown ribbon from Tai Pan. Green moss from Michaels. I think it turned out pretty cute.
I filled this bucket from the dollar bin at target. ($2.50) with a piece of quarter fabric ($1.oo) from Joannes, and used some ribbon from the dollar bin at target to tie around the handles. I didn't have anything to put in it, so I put some cinnamon potpurri in it for the time being until I find something I like to go in it.
Cute Conversation I overheard between Kasen and Jeremy.
Kasen: "I am having so much fun playing this game with you daddy!"
Jeremy: "Are you? You have no idea how happy that makes me Kasen! I'm so glad. That makes my day."
Even if it's video games they bond over, I just think its so dang sweet!

I received a CD from Jeremy's mom today. It made me cry. It was full of pictures of Kasen when he was a baby. A BABY! I don't even remember those days. My Kasen is going to be 4 in November. He goes to school. He talks back. He tells me he likes my clothes. He isn't a baby anymore. How sad! This was a SERIOUS trip down memory lane. All his baby pictures are on OUR computer which is not working right now, so it's been a while since I have seen him as a baby. How can it be? I don't get it! Where did all the time go? It seems like I was just calling my father in law the childrens dentist to tell him about Kasen's first tooth. It seems like he just started learning his alphabet. I honestly don't get it. What happened? He can't grow up! He is all I have!
It's so bitter sweet. I love the age he is at. He is so smart. He tells me he loves me. He teaches me new things everyday. He tells me silly jokes. But when he was a baby, he cuddled me, he relied on me more, he would fall asleep in my arms. I guess that's why I have pictures like these, to move on making more sweet memories, and continue to hold on to the old sweet memories.

A little background: Kasen and Brielle were sitting in the family room. I had just cleaned out Kasen's old sippy cups and some bottles and plates and they were sitting in a big tupperware container on the floor in there.
Brielle: Why are all these sippys here?
Kasen: They are for when I have brothers and sisters
Brielle: But you don't have any
Kasen: But I will when my mom gets married again
Brielle: Oh cool
My dad: That's a perfect example of putting 2 and 2 together and getting 5!
lol....all Kasen knows is that you have to be married in order to get pregnant. Cracked me up!

While we were at the mall, Kasen wanted to go to the pet store. Cori and I took him in to see the puppies and this is what Kasen had to say....
All the people in the store were laughing and pointing at Kasen. Some might have been annoyed, but most thought he was quite cute and entertaining. I must agree. Especially the cute part. On the second video, he actually got one of the dogs to bark back at him. I missed most of the barking match, but caught a little on camera.

The newest member of the Kasen Bruce family....
My friend Cori and I (who was visiting from Las Vegas) went to the mall in Mission Viejo and walked around last weekend. Kasen came with us and in result of being SUCH a good boy and also getting enough stars on his chore chart that week, he got a surprise. We took him into the Build A Bear store and he got to make a new friend. One of Kasen's other best friends has come from this store (Bobby) and so I was hoping that Kasen could make another best friend. Or maybe a best friend for Bobby? He really thought it was neat. He got to add a heart to the doggy. He got to press the pedal and fluff him, he got to bathe him, brush him and name him.
When it came to the name and birth certificate process, he knew right away what he wanted to name him. Duba. (doo-buh) Don't ask. I don't know. But he LOVES the name. He loves Duba! It all worked out nicely.
taking Duba home.
He saw a dad walking through the mall with his little boy on his shoulders and immediately wanted Duba out of his box and put him straight on his shoulders. Aww!
So tired on the way home in the car. Hugging Duba tight.
Cori and I. Friends since we were 7.
