Halloween fun at Bishops farm!
Christian's first time bouncing on the hay trampoline!
One of the smaller pumpkins at the Farm.
I'm not quite sure if Jada's trying to lift it, push it
or take a nap on it??

Best Friends Forever!!

Super fun Train Ride!
Mariana getting ready for Halloween Costume day at school!
She loved posing!!

Her Super Fun teacher Mrs. Deason!

Getting ready for our Stake Halloween Party! Christian was an Alien.
In Nursery, for various reasons, his nick name is 'C' Monster. This pic fits!

Jada was a Kitty this year! (love sister's hand me downs) =)
{props to Dad on the whiskers!}

And of course the Cowgirl!!
If we don't get some land for a small farm I'm afraid she'll
have a horrible childhood!

Mariana's first day of Kindergarten

My beautiful Girl already for her first day of school!
Jada saying goodbye to her big sister! A bitter sweet moment!
Her classroom. Surprisingly enough neither David nor I shed a tear. She was just too excited and so were we for her. Infact, Kindergarten looked pretty fun, we wanted to go again!
Couldn't be more excited!! I found out later that on her very first day of Kindergarten was asked to be someone's girlfriend!! Wow! It happens fast these days! Her response was, "I don't know"... I told her that she's not allowed, only friends. And that her dad was the only "boy" in her life that really matters right now!! I'm volunteering at the school on Mondays, I'm keepin
my eye on those boys! IT'S ONLY KINDERGARTEN!!

Christians 1st Birthday!

First Day home with Our Family!
With David being his Daddy Batman was really the only option! =)
Presents!! His curls in the back are my favorite!Eaters Regret!
My sweet son! I love him soo much! He's the most romantic 1 year old I've ever met.
Out of all my musical kids he has the best taste in music and the coolest moves!
How did I get soo lucky! ?

LIMUTAU GIRLS! their creative side!

So my girls do have a lot of dress ups but their own inventions are my favorites! Here are a few to Enjoy! Here's Mariana asleep wearing her dress ups. This is so her personality! She tells me every day that she wants to be a rock star! Who knew Mr. Potato Head and Harry Potter glasses would make such great dress ups!?

Catch Up Time with the Limutau's!

I did the post back wards again oops! And I thought I was getting it! Oh well, more commentary at the bottom!

Christian and his lizard tongue...crazy huh! But he does look studley in his church clothes! Jada's Birthday Party with the family!
My little pony cake, YUM!
Snow Trip with the cousins..Jada and Maile are chocolate lovers!
These two are a crack up...three going on thirteen..SCARY!
(don't worry about Jada's ghetto snow clothes:)
Christian's first snow trip! He loved it!

Christian's allergic poor baby! It looked worst from the side, it was like his lips
transformed into a duck bill. We put Vaseline on his lips to stop the cracking.

Mariana's Ballerina Birthday Party~! We made Tutu's
and danced and danced! I was exhausted afterwards!
They took turns being a butterfly in the cute!
Stretching and warming up our bodies!

David took the girls on a expedition and found a scary monster's Jada shaking
the gate, fearless and wanting to go closer...
Here's what Mariana thought about getting closer ... (cracks me up)
Our Yummy Boy! (nice round head, huh!)
Mariana and Jada are bestest friends! They melt my heart!
Didn't realize this was soo blurry, sorry!

It's been an exciting Four Months in 2010.
In Jan. we found out Christian is allergic to peanuts! Jada shared her PB on a spoon with him and his top lip began to swell! It got so big it began to crack and bleed a little. Luckily it didn't stop him breathing and his tongue didn't swell up too or it would have been 911! So grateful my father in law rushed to the store for some children's benydral and him and David arrived at the house at the same time and gave Christian a Priesthood blessing. His lip began to shrink to it's normal size but it was a bit of a scare. We're hoping he grows out of it. Life without peanut butter is just a horrible thought! The doctor has prescribed an epi-pen as well...just in case! I hope I never have to use it!
In January we celebrated Jada's 3rd birthday and in February we celebrated Mariana's 5th birthday! My little girls are getting so big. Mariana is registered for kindergarten and super excited to be in school. I, on the other hand, am sad to see her grow up!
The holidays have been fun but low key as I am still trying to wrap my head around three kids etc. etc. etc.:) David and I had a really fun date this last Week. He secretly purchased tickets to one of our favorite UK bands MUSE for Christmas! So we went to dinner on the way to Oakland's Oracle Arena. It was The best concert! They are just too talented! It was a blast! We've both agreed that before we die we need to be on the floor during one of their concerts, that way we can really rock out!
Even though it's been tough being so completely out numbered with three kids I've found myself totally in love with them and thoroughly enjoying every moment we share. I feel my
life to be one huge blessing that most days I wonder how I got soo lucky and I don't deserve it!

love you all
The Limutau's

Wrapping Up a Happy Ending to 2009

We feel so blessed I still have to pinch myself to make sure I'm not dreaming!
Along, with a New member in our Family, Our Son Christian James, we decided to sell our
cars and upgrade to a Honda Pilot, of which we still LOVE! It was worth a year long search of which kind of car we wanted to upgrade to and once we decided everything seemed to happen at the right time.
We were able to visit family on both sides of our families, which is always a treat and so much fun! First to Idaho for Davids family reunion and then in Oct. to visit mine now that all the missionaries are home. It was a blast!
But the biggest surprise to 2009 was the opportunity to purchase the home we've been renting for the past 6 1/2 years! About four years ago as the market was increasing rapidly we offered to buy the house but the owner was not ready to sell yet. Now things are so different for her and the market that she offered to sell it to us for under $100,000! Which is unheard of in Sacramento for a house that's in as good of shape as our is. What a blessing to be homeowners!! Something we had down as a goal but wasn't sure was going to happen in this awesome "buyers" market right now. I really feel Heavenly Fathers hand in our lives as we've set goals to get out of debt and faithfully have paid a full tithe all these years. Owning your home really is a self-esteem booster I think, something I wasn't expecting because I've never minded renting (you have to live somewhere, right!?)
We had a great Christmas and New Year and are Happy and Healthy! Here are a few pictures from Summer through Christmas! Enjoy
ps. I'm realizing I'm missing pictures from our Utah trip...sorry family!

What is it when the guys get together the Guns all come out! Mostly I was jealous cause I missed out on the fun!
