Ty browsing

Danilo & Ty went to the supermarket to buy ice cream. Apparently they ended up in the BABY ISLE and made a video.

They came home so excited to show me.

Here it is:

Ty's VERY OWN Cakeballs

I made Ty his very own box of Cakeballs.

He never gets his own box of Cakeballs. He never even gets his own Cakeballs. He is only allowed to eat the ones that don't turn out perfect

These were special though. Made with extra love for my wonderful hubby.

They turned out pretty cute in my opinion.

In case you haven't figured it out yet...

The story:

So for a few days I hadn't been feeling well. (Our minichurch will agree since I was super emotional the day before I found out. Poor Tim didn't know what to do with me. One minute I had been laughing and the next it took everything I had to hold back an ocean of tears)

I had been craving chocolate & was super cranky (which is not different from any other month) but I decided that the next morning I would take a pregnancy test just to be sure. I was 100% certain that I wasn't but I just wanted to confirm. So I went to bed and set my alarm for the morning.

Well I woke up the next morning and quietly crawled out of bed because I didn't want Ty to wake up and I took the test. Which by the way INSTANTLY showed 2 lines. 2 dark lines that were very unquestionable. I looked at the clock then and realized it was only 2AM! I tried to wake Ty but he just turned over and didnt't even open an eye. So I decided I'd go back to sleep and I'd tell him in the morning.

Well I couldn't sleep! AT ALL! I prayed and thanked God that through all the things we've been going through lately that He could still fill our life with so much joy! We'd actually talked about that the night before and since I had been sad I had no contribution to a praise report and I had no joy to share, but God had other plans. I know that regardless of any trials we may face there is always joy to be had and this is a great example. A great gift. One only God can give!

Anyway, after I prayed I freaked out a bit and kept repeating "Oh God" over and over again. For about 3 hours. I finally got up and decided to go make cakeballs. I was exhausted but WAY too anxious to sleep.

I was finished with Ty's cakeballs before 6am! He was still asleep! I worked on another order I had and checked on Ty at 7am. STILL SLEEPING.

Finally at 8am he was finished showering & shaving and when I went to say Good Morning he was on a CONFERENCE CALL!!!!! I asked if he had a sec to sit and eat breakfast with me and he said yes. So as he ironed I said "Oh yea I made you a box of cakeballs since I gave away all the extras yesterday" He was excited, but since I was watching Friends while I baked he opened the box s-l-o-w-l-y because the show had caught his attention. It was torture. I remained patient though. When he looked inside he paused and with a HUGE smile & tons of excitement he turned to me and said, "WE ARE?!" I said YES and we hugged & laughed. It was great!

We prayed for our little poppyseed and then we both went to work. He did ask me to take one more test to be sure before we told anyone so I did. Guess what!?! It was still positive! We are going to be parents! SO CRAZY, EXCITING & CRAZY!

Danilo is here visiting from Italy. We've had a blast with him here!

Here are a few things that he's done:

Eaten Chocolate Chip Cookies, Blueberry muffins & his new favorite BAGELS for breakfast!

Visited Hermosa, Redondo, Manhattan, Venice & Santa Monica Beach

This is Hermosa Beach (for you non-so-cal-ers)

He has eaten & rolled Cakeballs. Danilo LOVES Cakeballs!

He has taught Ty to cook amazing Italian meals! Get ready for some dinner parties coming up!

Visited Venice in Las Vegas

Met the wax-version of Whoopie

Pretended to be my dad- cleaning the car windshield at every gas station - sorry dad you're famous for this!

Watched many sunsets while playing frisbee, riding in the car or riding the bike on the Strand.

He's tried Smores & fallen in love with them!

Taught Ty to make Risotto! (So excited!!)

Gone on an all-boy trip to San Francisco

Again, pretended to be my dad! ha!

The boys in San Fran.

I can't add a caption to all of these because I have NO idea what crazy thing they were up to in all of them!

He bought a new video camera at Best Buy and has made hundreds of movies (and saved them on his new external hard drive)

Walked 8 hours to see the Golden Gate Bridge

Taken pictures for Danielle (because I saw her on Cupcake wars!)

They froze on the Golden Gate Bridge when they finally got there!

They checked out the Painted Ladies...

HA cleaned the windshield again - these are all for you dad! (we'll know if you read this blog now!)

Ty & Danilo played frisbee in Manhattan Beach while watching the sunset.

Danilo pretended to be on the set of Baywatch

He walked & rode his bike with his cool backpack chair!

Ate at the Hard Rock (Casino in Las Vegas)

Toured all the Casinos in Vegas (this is the Bellagio)

Had a Frozen Hot Chocolate at Serendipity

Made a wish in the Las Vegas Trevi fountain

Saw pole dancers at the Hard Rock Casino

Swam at the Cesar Palace pools (nearly all 7 of them)

We are such "thugs" "dude" (some of Danilo's new words)

Got tan (and burned) at Cesar Palace

These are just a few things that he did! He still has 3 more days here. He spent the day in Hollywood & Rodeo Drive today and tomorrow after touring the Staples Center he is meeting up with Ty to see a Dodgers game and then out to party Downtown. (Danielle will be home sleeping ha!)

Here's a few of his videos:

This is the Mastercard Commercial Ty & Danilo made while playing frisbee on the beach at sunset

This video is of Jet & Ty teaching Danilo how to say "Like" and "Dude"
