Mommy's little models

So not only is Isabella working but Mr. Noah was recently signed to Isabella's agent as well. Out of like 30 little bity ones only 5 were signed & Noah was one of them. He marched right into his interview, recited the commerical he'd memorized & proceeded to tell Ruth (agent) that she should buy in "the black, green, yellow, white & pink Power Rangers!" she laughed & came right out to tell me he was ready to work. Misty took Isabella & Noah's pics for their comp cards & wow! Here are just a few teasers.

Halloween 2009

What a fun night! First we started out at Uncle Noels. All the cousins got ready together putting on their ghouly gear & walking shoes, ready to hit the hood. Noah of course wore his Captain America costume already a million times but it didn't loose it's meaning. Bella was the cutest pirate on the block & LOVED getting to wear makeup even if it wasn't pretty. And Andrew...can you say GROOOOOOOOVY BABY?! The coolest hippie around. Our precious little Maggie Moo was a pretty little ladybug. She didn't quite understand why daddy & mommy looked so silly but she was a great sport anyway. I was dressed like a scarey doll & daddy...well...he was "THE MOST INTERESTING MAN IN THE WORLD" the Dos Equis guy. Can you say FAKE TAN?!

After some Trick or Treating at Uncle Noel's we headed to the Fisher's. Awaiting us was a bon fire, hay rides, an outdoor movie, more trick or treating & lots of yummy food. We were joined by Aunt Heidy, Tiana, Monique, Uncle William & Tia Marta (who happen to be visiting) & our course all our Fisher & Cope friends.

What a fun why to celebrate Halloween! With all wonderful family & friends!

1 more time for amazing Maggs

Today Maggie had surgery...again...Thankfully just outpatient. We got to the hospital & I felt so bad because she started screaming & wouldn't stop. It was like she knew what was about to happen. Finally we got into the play area of pre-op & she calmed down. She loves any toy that makes noise. Shortly after Maggs had her 2 best fans there to support her, Grandma Mimi & Grandma Mary. LUCKY GIRL!

Dr. Mancuso went back in to cut the tongue again. He said that this time he was more aggressive & really cut deep to ensure that we don't have to do it again. After he was done Dr. Argueso went in to do a scope of the kidneys & remove the stints placed after her ureter reimplementation. Between both surgeries they were done w/ in about 35 minutes. Pretty quick & easy.

Maggie woke up in not so good a mood & after a little throwing up fell fast asleep in mommy's arms. I'm amazed at how much this precious child can handle. I know if I were her I'd not like mama & daddy all that much :) A little more throwing up after picking up Noah from Papa & Mimi's but after that she did great. Mr. Noah always makes her feel all better! Uncle Noel, Heather & Wyatt came over to visit & of course Maggs loved the attention. Bella & Noah didn't mind hanging out w/ Wyatt either.

Andrew went to a Wii Bowling Tournament for the 6th graders at church. HE WON 1st Place & got lots of free stuff for Amazing Jakes. Talented dude!

I'm so blessed

I'm so blessed to be able to stay home w/ my kids. Money is tight yes, but I think it's worth it. This morning I got to go out in the cool of the day & have a breakfast picnic w/ all 4 of my kids. Thank you Stephen for working so hard to make this possible for Andrew, Isabella, Noah & Maggie. I love you!

My article

Today an article was featured in the Gilbert Section of the Arizona Republic talking about Funky Bums, Maggie & my upcoming boutique w/ Kim Fisher. The reporter said I had a trendy store...I WISH! Pretty cool!

Andrew catches his first bass!!!!

Grandpa Rick has always be a great fisherman. He did it professionally for years & has had the joy of buying a boat & getting back on the water. Well, he's taken Andrew at least a dozen times & for some reason when the fish know Andrew is near they scatter. It must be in his blood, he's gonna be a pro just like Grandpa! Well in all those times he's never had any luck until today. He caught this lovely bass as well as another one. Too much Mercury in the water to eat it but he had a blast catching him. What a great grandpa you have Andrew!

Korbin is my princess

Today Noah got to spend the ENTIRE day w/ his best buddy Korbin. He was so excited last night when I told him that Korbin was picking him up in the morning. He said "Mom...Korbin's my best friend. He's my princess!" "Noah, boys are not princesses, just girls." "No mom, he's my boy princess!" How cute is that?! Karen & Korbin came to pick him up this morning at 9:30. During that time Daddy & I were able to run some errands & went out to a nice lunch w/ Maggie Moo. She sat up in a highchair & didn't even get tired. What a big girl!

Andrew & Isabella had early release today so they got to spend a little time w/ Dad before he was off to work at the restraunt. When Karen dropped him off he wore the fun day on his face. Korbin ended up staying so that David & Karen could go to dinner & a movie. The boys were so exhausted by 6pm that they started fighting & crying every 2 seconds. Andrew & Bella decided to distract the boys by playing "Underwear Man...(woman)" worked!

Happy Birthday Aunt Heidy & Aunt Lilly!

After I picked Isabella up from Ballet & Jazz we went to Papa & Mimi's to celebrate Aunt Heidy & Aunt Lilly's Birthday. The whole family was there ready to party. Even Georgie & Rene were able to make it!

Dad & Andrew didn't make it cause it was Andrew's first soccer practice. Dad said Andrew did awesome! Can't wait to see him at practice on Thursday night.

Kidney Surgery

I'm writing this & Maggie is in surgery right this moment. I'm trying not be too anxious & rely on the Philipians 4:6-7: Do not be anxious about anything, but in everything, by prayer and petition, with thanksgiving, present your requests to God. And the peace of God, which transcends all understanding, will guard your hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus.

So we woke up really early this morning to get ready for Maggie's big day. Of course Maggie was in great spirits as always. We arrived at here to Phoenix Children's Hospital at 5:30am. Once we got checked in Maggie got in her gown & she was out playing in the waiting room. Grandpa Rick, Grandma Mary & Aunt Chrissy were here to pray w/ us before Maggie went in. Unfortunately Dr. Mancuso, Maggie's ENT didn't show so no tongue surgery. I hate that we gotta postpone that but what can I do? So here are a few pics of Maggs before surgery. Will post more as she gets out.
