My baby girl turn one!!

I am so blessed to have two wonderful boys but having a girl is wonderful too. I love to dress her up. It is amazing to be a third child because she is learning fast. Already, she can say quite a few words. She is taking a few steps but is not yet walking by herself. Time does fly. I am surprised that she is already one. I had plan a big party for her but unfortunately it fell in the week I went up for the burial. Didn't matter because my baby girl deserved at least her first birthday. We were able to celebrate it with a very good friend of mine who also had a daughter Allie who was 8 days older. I wanted them to have it together because they are best buddies!! We just went to the park with some family and friends. It was such a good day!

It has been quite a few months since I last posted. Alot has been going on, especially this month; I went to visit my Abuela in New York towards the end of February. She has dealt with lymphoma for greater than a year. My Abuelita was taking chemotherapy for over a year. She finally decided it was way too much for her and she could no longer handle it at 89 years old. Early in January, she kept saying that she did not think she would be alive to see her eighth great-grandchild be born. My cousin's wife is due at the end of March, so I decided it was time to go visit her before she passes. Luckily, Michael was off for a week, so we drove up to New York to visit her.
It was a wonderful visit. I was glad to see her and hug her as she means the world to me. Shortly after we left New York, my sister called me saying she was not doing well. We knew then it was time for her to go, and a few days later she passed away.
Elena and I flew to New York for the burial. It was not as tough as I thought it would be, but I knew she was no longer in pain and is now with my Mom!! We have two wonderful angels now watching over us. I miss my Mom and Abuela deeply, but I know I will see them again. This is a picture of her and Elena when we went up in September 2010.

Gabriel Birthday!!

My baby boy has not yet turned three yet but we celebrated early because Michael was off and we are going out of town the day of our birthday. He wanted a choo birthday cake with a ninja turtle. Well, I got little better from doing Samuel's cake. Gabriel was so excited when he woke up. How blessed I am to have another handsome young boy. He makes me so proud too. Since Samuel started school Gabriel wanted to go to school too. Next year he will start preschool.

Samuel Birthday!!!!

My handsome Samuel turned 5 in August. I am so blessed to have such a smart and handsome boy. He has grown a lot and I am very proud of him. Samuel wanted a castle birthday cake. How in the world I made it was luck!! He was so excited when he saw it.
Samuel also started a kindergarten program this year. Michael and I are paying for it. If he does well then we will send him to first grade and if we feel that he needs to stay in kindergarten then we will let him stay there. We didn't want to send him right away to regular school because I know him. He couldn't handle a full day of school. He comes home for lunch and we have total melt down. I couldn't imagine if he stayed all day! He is doing really well and has made a lot of friends.

Some pictures of us having fun or just being silly!!

This is a picture of me and my good friend Brigette and her kids Alexandra and Brayden . We were at the blue plum festival. The kids had a blast that day. It was really hot but at least we enjoyed it. I am going to miss you guys!!! She moved with the family this weekend :(

These are my boys and their good friends Robbie and his sister Mariah. So, Samuel and Mariah have an love and hate relationship. They do get along but there are times where they are going at it. Not fighting but arguing a lot!!!

The rest of the pictures are just us and of course the boys being silly!! As you can see from some of the pics the boys love their baby sister. I don't blame them I can't resist holding her too!!
