so much love...

It has been far too long since I have picture exploded on my blog. Saturday evening I decided that little issue would be remedied. We had a lovely H-Family evening so I picture Nazi'd it up. Enjoy...

Since it had been forever AND a day since Bff Jil came to hang out over at Casa de H-Family...I decided to invite her on over. She came of course, and she brought along a date. See that little cuteness monster on the trampoline with Bug? Yep. Cutest four year old boy on the planet. That is Jil's nephew Jacob. I refer to him, 'Jacop' which makes Bff Jil want to strangle me...

Somehow, the two cuteness monsters convinced Jilian to get on the trampoline with them. How this happened, I know not. But the little monsters tag-teamed her...

And then my brother Jon-than decided to help those little twin terrors out. I am surprised that Jil survived. Between being bounced about 10 feet off of the trampoline, she also had to grab each of the monsters and hold them so that their little skulls did not collide. This left her with both hands occupied and poor Jily was defenseless. The kids found it hilarious...Jil was not quite as amused...

Bff Jil survived...thankfully. See, I have photographic evidence right here. Jil and Bastina Balicious smiling pretty for the camera! Please note that all three of us gals had on our chilly clothes and we were complaining that it was freezing...we all also had on flip-flops. Hmmm...I wonder WHY we were all freezing to death. Nothing like peacoats and flip-flops. But hey we are legit California girls and that is how we roll. Amen...

Jon-than and I played a little basketball like we did when we were kids. And yes, by 'playing basketball like we did when we were kids' I do mean he shot the baskets while I fed him the ball. I am a failure at b-ball my friends. I have been since I came out of the womb. But I am an excellent ball passer/handler/feeder (say it with me folks!). That is your 'Twss 101' lesson for today...

I took a little breather from my 'ball handling' to pose for a 'Signature Picture' with Jily. Since the dawn of our bff-ness almost every picture of us is the same. Like THE same. We take them ourselves, they are close ups, and we are always on the same side. No joke. This is the case for like 95% of our pictures together. We refer to them as the 'Signature Pose'...I bet you $1,000 bucks I know the first thing Jilian will say about this picture...prove me right Jily!

Jon-than is a lovely influence on the children. Which is why he literally kicked little Jacop off of Bug's princess bike and took it for a spin. Bastina, do you realize you are going to have to raise him AND your babies when you have them? Just sayin'...

So, you will all probably be seeing quite a few pictures like this on my blog...and on Bastina's as well. Why? Well, we have a mutual internet bff Vanessa. She lives ALL the way over on the east coast. Which is lame because she is a totally a Cali girl in her heart...which is why when she visited our glorious state she left her heart here. Bastina keeps it in her purse for safe keeping. We plan on taking Vanessa's heart along with us on our many adventures. That is until Vanessa makes her victorious return to our side of the country, then she will have her heart back. We love you V!

My mother made cupcakes for dessert. For some reason they were a total fail and turned into cupcake tops only. So naturally Bastina slapped two of the cupcake tops together with some frosting and made a cupcake sandwich. Yum. She also was sitting like a crazy person because she was scared to get chocolate cupcake on the newly upholstered chair, which in this house would equal a death sentence. Bastina enjoyed her cupcakes much to someone else's dismay...


Unless you have been to my house (which only includes two of you) you may not know that the chair Bastina was munching on cupcakey goodness on is right across from the couch where Jilian and Jacop are sitting. So that also means you cannot tell that Bff Jil is purposefully NOT looking in Bastina's direction. Why? Oh because she has control issues and cannot handle unkempt cupcake eating. Don't believe me? Yeah...click your way over here and then you will trust...

Brother Jon-than has a picture taking issue. So any chance that I see to snap his photo I take it...and then I post it because it is SO rare. Please, disregard the hideous that is my face in this picture...

After our lovely company evacuated I made my way to my room to do some homework. I came to a very, very tragic conclusion. No longer do I have fabulous Dolce & Gabbana reading glasses because they are cute...I have reached the old point where I actually need them to read. I. Was. Devastated. Oh, and please do not confuse this picture with me trying to look hottspice, I was biting my lip to keep myself from crying. Hi, my name is Alex and I am officially old...

Yay, for fabulous time with beloved family and friends (and by friends I mean honorary family). I have the best group of people in my life...srsly. I love them all so bad. Want to know what else I love wicked bad? The cross process photo edit option. It makes my pictures look awesome and vintage...it makes me happy. It's the little things y'all...

I love your family. I was never allowed to have a trampoline when I was a kid, so it will be first on my list of things to get when I have a yard big enough!

You are smoking hot, just so you know :)
