Comfort Food

I promised myself I wouldn't post pictures of places or things that I liked, but looking at other people's blogs is so interesting and I love to see what kinds of things other people enjoy. So on the subject of food, there is nothing I'd rather have than pizza from La Grande Orange and gelato from Arlecchino's right next door. Guaranteed to be the best pizza and gelato you've ever had. I know some people were posting about the Gelato Spot in Scottsdale, but trust me, this is better!

Clay already had chocolate on his face by the time we got the camera.
(And we thought Clara was the sweet tooth!)

I got new easter baskets for the kids this year, and Clara didn't even have to ask which one was hers, she knew it was the PINK one!

I love having 2 girls I can dress the same, especially since Candice is in San Francisco, so Clara and Maya can't always be matchy matchy. But come June I'm sure that will change!

Little Angels

As much as I love being a mom, Clara and Clay have really tested my patience this week. I came outside to find them hanging on the pool fence with their suckers which I thought was cute, so I grabbed the camera to capture the moment. This was a good day. The next day, however, didn't go so well. Taking a hammer to the fridge, spitting juice and milk at each other while running around the house, putting things in the toilet, scratching Derek's leather chair with a screw, and drinking from the dog's water dish were just a few of the mischievious things they did. Nothing major, but all firsts and within a few days was enough to make me crazy! Maybe that's their way of telling me to get out more!?
