Our Prolific Grape Plant

I am so excited about our grapes! We've had these guys for 3 years now and they have been giving us grapes abundantly for 2. I have to say that I have not done too much with this plant. It just wants to grow and give us yummy fruit. I am very okay with that!

We have nibblers in the name of Soph and Magnus that likes to see if they are sweeten yet.

Peek a boo, I see you delicious-ness!

Magnus Without Training Wheels

It has taken John a few years to teach Magnus how to ride on his own, but he has now! Such an exciting feat for growing boy! 

And here comes Soph chasing after her brother. She was adamant that she needed to have a helmet on too, even though she is only running around.
Safety comes first in the Grandberg household!

Our Tooth Fairy

So this is what happens when you start a trend of giving out toys for a tooth rather than money, like the good ol' days!

It reads:

Dear Magnus, Thank you very much for leaving your tooth for me. It looks like a good one! I apologize that I don't have a toy for you yet. To be honest, I fell down and injured one of my wings he other day. Since I am the only tooth fairy in Santa Rosa, I have lots of kids to visit each night, and I just haven't been able to keep up. I even had to ask the Rohnert Park tooth fairy to help me out for a few days! I'm getting better now, but I still haven't had enough time for toy shopping.

 Please accept this coupon, which is good for one toy. Give it to your parents and they will know what to do with it. My records show that you still have not used the last coupon I gave you, so I actually owe you two toys. I'll tell your parents and they will take care of it for me.

Love, The Tooth Fairy

PS: Remember to always brush and floss your teeth!

Magnus lost a 2nd tooth!

What a 10mins of craziness it was when that happened! I was making a bechamel sauce (a delicate process of cooking flour with butter). Which is not something you should walk away from.

Magnus says, "moom, I voost my thooth". I look over from the kitchen and sure enough he's got blood dripping from his mouth. Moment of panic, do I attend to Magnus or the sauce because it is going to burn if I leave. Common sense your son!!!!

So while I was helping him rinse out his mouth and apply pressure to his gums to stop the bleeding this is what my other lovely did to my room.

It didn't stop there. She continued a path of destruction into the "toy living room". All because she was free to roam for 10 mins.

Ugh! We love us some Soph.

Our 10 Years Of Hard Work

It's actually longer than that if you count the four years we were together before we got married! I say hard work because that is exactly how it has been. If we didn't put in the work then we wouldn't have been able to see this kind of results!!!

I am so thankful that this was the road that was chosen for us. I am so in love with this man more than ever before! He is an awesomely amazing compassionate person that totally gets where I am coming from. He laughs at my silly jokes and goes along with my silly antics, yet stops me from becoming the fool. He is a great provider and most of all he loves the Lord with all of his heart.

We celebrated the day by taking the kids out to brunch. Magnus was so honored that he was included in our plans. It was so awesome to see him excited for our love. I think including the kids as a part of our anniversary celebration is a keeper! Later in the day John and I had a little date time and went out to the beach. We took pictures 

and then here are the out takes.


I am so thankful that we can laugh together! I hope that many more laughs will accompany the many more years together. We ended the night by picking up dinner from Panda Express. Going to the beach and eating at Panda Express was how John and I lived the majority of our high school years together. Perfect ending to a perfect day.

My 30

For my birthday, we had a 2 day celebration thing going on. (maybe it was to make up for someone forgetting their wife's birthday last year, but we won't mention any names around here)! Anyways, we spent some time at the beach for a few minutes before Magnus got sand in his eyes and we decided to cut that trip short. So we picked up some clam chowder from the Tides marketplace, played some video games and drove back home. Along the way home, I kept on seeing signs for Gravenstein apples. They are one of my favorites and they are in season now! We decided to make a stop at Mike's Fruit Stand over by our house and it was a very good decision!
Magnus's birthday card for me! He said he worked on this for 3 days because he wanted to keep it a secret from me!

There's me and him playing, some trees, some birds flying and Soph hiding behind one of the trees

The fruit stand had picnic benches there and this was the backdrop. How could we resist a place to sit and sample our goods we purchased!

Magnus loves going to this fruit stand, just for the candy itself! Maybe we should start calling it the candy stand instead?

Soph eating one of the yummy candies we bought there. She can spot candy a mile away!

The next day we went to SF to get some Banh Mi without the kids because my mom offerred to babysit. What a great 30th birthday celebration I had, doing all the things that I love with the people I love the most!!

How Magnus is helping

A couple of days after I got hurt and John had to go back to work, Magnus stepped up the to be the caregiver to me. I was really concerned about how lunch would go since I couldn't stand or walk around too much. So my baby decided that he and his sister were going to have a frozen pizza for lunch. Something that he can proudly make all by himself! Then this happens..... 

The pizza slid off the tray and landed right on the floor. I think it crushed him just a little bit. So I told him that it was ok, I cleaned it up and decided to make another one for them. I was in pain afterwards, but better me physically than Magnus emotionally. 

Pizza covered faces and a little pen mark too!
